    Post by genequag on Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:35 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most interest in playing?
    A) WAR

    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?
    A)Yessir and/or Yes'm.

    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]
    A)Is 30 more than 18?

    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]
    A) Yeah, I have.

    Q)
    Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were
    you recruited by someone? If so, who?

    A)Nope, alas.

    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]
    A)Korkmaz/Hypatia

    Q) Gender: [female, male]
    A)K: Male, H: Female, Me: Male, mostly.

    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]
    A)Parts Unknown, Ypsilanti, MI, USA

    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]
    A)Initial searching for guild in pre-game phase, and seeing a ton of folks from the guild in game.

    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?
    A)Nope.

    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?
    A)Nope.

    Q)
    We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good?
    You're a standup comedian you say?

    A)I could sure say I was a standup comedian, but that certainly wouldn't make me one. I am however, into standup comedy, and will know way more than the average citizen about it. Laughing is very important to me.

    Q)
    What other MMO's have you played if any: [Acquired a few skills from
    some other games eh? Tell us about them]

    A)I've been playing around with this archetype since the MUD days. I was on Sojourn/Toril, which Sony took several admins from to develop EQ1. I've played EQ, EQ2, EQOA, WoW, SWG (very briefly), Anarchy Online (even briefer, as it killed my system twice), among others which I played long enough to dismiss.

    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]
    A) Numbers are very important, to be honest. I'd like to have a chance of doing something organized in game once in a while.

    Q)
    Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some
    hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.

    A) I'm unemployed at the moment, so I spend a lot of time on the game. I am a Linguist in training, so hopefully I'll get back into grad school sooner or later. I love football (both kinds!), college basketball, reading, music, and games. I can provide links to facebook and livejournal on request, where this sort of thing is laid out. Razz

    Please remember to register here on these forums.
    A)Never! Wait... OK.


    Q) Do you have any questions for us? Yeah, will you let me into your stupid club for jerks?

    Thank you for applying, interesting humor you have, however the following took me a little aback. I understand when someone is trying to be funny and depending on the manner employed it looks like the application was rushed. I didnt think it was funny, but that is me.

    "Q) Do you have any questions for us? Yeah, will you let me into your stupid club for jerks?"

    Care to tell us about any of your hobbies, a good story would be nice.

    I personally found it humorous. Coincidentally, I'll let you join only if you can prove to me that you are both stupider and jerkier (word?) than I (just don't include that on your app =P). Other than that, a little more elaboration on who you are, or maybe a story about that time when you walked in on your grandparents, etc.

    I'm not much of a storyteller. It's probably why I"m so devoted to comedians/spoken word types so much. I love nothing more than a good story, but I seem to suck ass at constructing them. Incidentally, I walked in on my sister being conceived (near as we can tell). My parents were hippies, though, so it wasn't that big a deal. I once got in trouble in second grade for describing accurately the act of intercourse using appropriate terminology. My mother was well pissed.

    Thanks for the response, i'm not much of simpsons fan but nobody's perfect! You seem like an ok guy, I suppose I am looking for something that stands out. The parental story of your sister's conception was good tho.

    Long narrations are not necessary but we certainly look at the steak and not the peas. I'll have to give this application some more thought. Did I mention you application was a little thin? Which football teams do you like?

    Pie or Cake? (please explain your answer)

    I dunno, I guess I'm missing what's missing.

    I'm a sarcastic bastard with a brain full of obscure and not-so-obscure references. I'm 30 years old and married. I'm semi-proficient in German and have quite an extensive command of the English language. Um, I like sports, almost to a fault. I read way too many books and own ~1000 cds and 90 gigs of music (at the moment).

    I'd be happy to take specific questions, I love being interviewed. Not a great spieler, however (ironic!).

    Well, I was born in Kentucky and raised in Tallahassee, FL so I support the Kentucky Wildcats and the Florida State Seminoles. I can't be arsed to watch the NFL, it's friggin' boring to me. The only reason I acknowledge it is to keep track of former college players. I was a Giants fan in my youth, however.

    My team in the other football is FC Bayern Mnchen. Quite passionate about this, and spend entirely too much money supporting my devotion. Actually had a chance to see them play in Chicago a couple of years ago against Manchester United (scum!).

    As for cake/pie, I gotta say that's an incomplete enumeration. Why not just have cheesecake, which is about as cakey a pie and as piey a cake as you are ever likely to mosey across in this big insane world. Forced to choose, I'd say cake, but only as a vector for icing really (bad diabetic!).

    All questions were answered in the previous post, except for the music one.

    I really do like just about all types of music. Possible blanket exceptions being modern country and modern R and B.

    My first love was hip-hop, however, so there's a lot of that. Probably the biggest chunk is devoted to what I describe as "experimental" music, for lack of a better term. Noisey, clangy, "weird" type stuff. Tons of reggae, dancehall, and dub. I have a bumpersticker on my car that says "I (heart) dub!" Those are my main three loves, but I'll listen to just about anything of quality. Maybe I'll fire up the ole Itunes and list the first ten randoms it busts out...

    Halber Mensch - Einstrzende Neubauten
    Hit 'Em - Three Six Mafia
    Roc Boys - Re-up gang
    Get Crunk - Lil' Flip
    Space Captain - Legendary Pink Dots
    Serere- Lekan Animashun
    Shame - The Smashing Pumpkins
    The Magnificent Seven - The Clash
    Bism - Coil
    Cook It Up - Aesop Rock

    Interesting, that's actually fairly representative...

    And I underestimate slightly, my music folder is actually 97 gigs. affraid

    Well, I like you. For one thing, I dig your style, and I think you managed to pack enough of it into even your short respnses. Second, you've well proven that you have a genuine desire to be a part of our fine community, and your app wasn't a fire-and-forget formality.

    Oh, I forgot the gamer one...

    hmm.

    I like information, so being the first to find out about things is important to me. This really generally only comes into play in MMO's, but it's still fairly important to my gamer psyche.

    I'm fairly high level at Tekken. I'm proficient at Street Fighter incarnations. I tend to love FIFA (yes, i prefer it over PES/WiElE, generally), but was quite disappointed by last year's. High hope for this edition, should be here ina couple of days from Gamefly.

    Xbox live: Gene Quagmire
    I'd post my PSN name, but some asshole broke into my apartment earlier this year and ganked my shit. Despite Little Big Planet, I can't bring myself to buy another one now that FF13 and Tekken 6 are on Xbox as well.

    The first game I ever played was Dig-Dug in a laundromat in Richmond, KY when I was 4.

    and yes, you still have my vote...

    btw, check out "art of noise" it might be right up your ally.

    Seems like a good app. I got the Simpson's ref even if no one else did. You had me laughing almost from the start. Your quick responses and seemingly endless supply of music and books impressed me as well. You get my Thumbs Up .
