About SN

Serenity Now is a day one three end-game raiding guild on the Illidan server in World of Warcraft.  Our primary goal is to have fun while continuing to progress through end-game content.  We are a very laid-back guild, but we are certainly not for everyone.  Our goal is to put fun first.  We place almost no restrictions on members outside of raid times, and we like to fuck around in content we have on farm.

Application Requirements

  • You must be level 80 in order for us to consider your application. Only exception is if you have contacted a officer about applying.
  • You should be able to consistently make all of our raid times and be able to stay for the entire raid. Raids generally last until 11:00PM CST.
    • 7:30 PM CST Monday
    • 7:30 PM CST Tuesday
    • 7:30 PM CST Thursday
  • You need to be able to check the forums daily.  Most of our announcements are made in the forums, and not knowing what's going on can easily cost you your raid spot.  Frequent posting isn't necessary, but it's certainly a plus.
  • Your gear needs to be appropriate for our progression level.
  • We require all raid members to be on Ventrilo during raids.  You must be able to both listen AND speak on vent.  If you don't have a mic, get one.  Communication is important - nobody likes wiping because the guy without the mic wasn't able to call something out.
  • If you're on another server, you need to transfer your character if we decide to accept you as an applicant.  This does NOT guarantee that you will become a member, it simply means that we need your class and your gear is of acceptable level.
  • Have a thick skin.  We say things you wouldn’t want mommy and daddy to see.  If you are offended by anything at all, then you will probably find us offensive.  You will probably be called things such as "terrible" and "stupid" at some point during your app process.  This is normal, and we don't necessarily think you're terrible or stupid.  If you don't think you can handle it, don't apply.
  • This is not a democracy.  We value your input, but we will run the guild as we see fit.  If you have suggestions, complaints, or any other concerns, please speak with an officer during non-raid times or send an officer a PM on the forums.  You are expected to do what is requested of you.  If you want to be in charge, make your own guild.
  • You must be applied exclusively to SN.  If we find that you have active applications to other guilds, we will close your app.
  • We use a DKP system to distribute loot.  Its a no-minimum open-bid DKP system.  If you don't like it, it won't be changing, so this may not be the guild for you.  Feel free to ask for more details about it.
  • You are expected to come prepared to raids.  This means you have an adequate number of consumables, are fully repaired, and have read up on the encounters we are working on.

The Application Process

  • Read all the posts in this thread to make sure you meet our requirements.
  • Copy and paste the application template at the end of this thread into a new thread.  We won't read your app if the questions aren't there.  The title of your new thread should contain your character name, level, and class/spec.  Example:  Martel - 80 Prot Paladin.
  • Answer every question on the template.
  • Once you've posted your app, get in contact with one of our officers (listed at the end of this post) ingame or in vent.  It is up to you to get in contact with us.  If you expect us to throw purples at you, put in the effort to talk to us.
  • Expect your app to be trolled by both former(SN Alumnus) and current members.  There's no way around it.  If you can't handle being called bad/stupid/etc by people who possibly don't even play the game anymore, you probably won't survive in the guild.
  • Stay active in your app thread.  We like people who post on the forums.  If an officer asks you something in your app thread, you should respond.
  • Once you've contacted an officer, we will try to get you into a raid for evaluation.  After we've taken you to a couple raids and/or determined that you're not awful, you will be invited to the guild with the rank of Barelyguilded.  If you continue to perform well for a few weeks, you will be promoted to full member.  More ranks are available, which you will be able to read about in our private forums once you have been accepted as an applicant.
  • ???
  • Profit!


You may contact our officers via Ventrilo or by whispering us ingame.

Longstreet's Application Pointers

After noticing a large amount of truly pitiful apps here recently I thought I'd give a few pointers.


-Before you start think about your forum name.  Think hard... is that really what you want it to be.  Really?


-Trying to make the ENTIRE application 'funny' is overdone.  It just makes you look immature, or like a try-hard trying to make up for terribleness.  Save your creative writing for the last 3 questions, that's what they are for.


-Don't play the 'too cool to know my computer specs' card.  Right click on my computer and hit Properties, or ask your parents which kind of Dell they bought you.


-Make the overall app readable and presentable. Maybe set it off on the next line with bold letters or colors.  I find myself skipping over apps that are all jumbled together.  Check for spelling and keep the smileys, lols, and rofls to a minimum.


-Answer #9 correctly.  According to webster an expletive is:
Quote
1 a: a syllable, word, or phrase inserted to fill a vacancy (as in a sentence or a metrical line) without adding to the sense  ; especially : a word (as it in “make it clear which you prefer”) that occupies the position of the subject or object of a verb in normal English word order and anticipates a subsequent word or phrase that supplies the needed meaningful content b: an exclamatory word or phrase  ; especially : one that is obscene or profane
