21, USA. I wanted to play with my friend so I poked around and you guys seemed best. I also wanted to find a safe server to show the kids I baby sit.
Hello, and thank you for your interest in our server.
Unfortunately, based on your short application, we don't feel you would be a good fit here.
I hope that you understand, and I wish you the best of luck in finding a server that is suitable for you.
@Graphika Thank you for your quick reply! I was not aware you desired a longer application. The long form is that I want to build a flower farm with my friend Mist because we haven't been able to play MC together for years due to computer issues. I really do think you guys would be the best fit because we prefer moded MC and I personally don't enjoy the lawlessness of most MC servers and often feel that I can't build on the surface due to raiding. Please reconsider, your community seems safe, nice, and engaged, I would love to join.
Let me just reply to all of this with quotes from our application info post:
I was not aware you desired a longer application.
We prefer longer applications, so feel free to add on any information about yourself as a player or a person. ... We will reject short applications, ...
I also wanted to find a safe server to show the kids I baby sit.
... this is an 18+ community ...
I hope that makes our reasoning clearer to you!
hold on please, you just auto declined me and didn't even respond to my reply. Will you pleas reconsider my application?
Yes, if you don't read our basic instructions or what this community is, we will auto decline you and not reconsider afterwards.
I did in fact read all the way through the instructions and Mist would have made the same simple mistake if I had not fallen to it first. Prefer does not seem to imply require for consideration and compared to previous MC applications what I gave felt long. Also to not reconsider seems unnecessarily quick to shut people out and you could ask them to please say more.
I thought your application info says that 16 and up will be considered and did not think that would prejudice my application I would never invite them if you guys didn't express willingness
Sigh, I will feel bad if I just whitelist your friend. We shouldn't be so harsh here, but you also have to understand after having dealt with 1000s of applications at this point, we don't really feel the need to give people a second chance if they screw up their initial impression. We already don't have much to go of to decide if the person will fit in or not, if they will cause issues etc. and it's simply easier to tell them no and accept people that put effort into their application.
Regardless I hope you will have a good time on our servers, added to the whitelist and I look forward to meeting you.
Thank you very much.
