LtLush, thanks for your interest in full membership of NTHW. I know a number of us have discussed your application with you.
NTHW is a little bit different to many gaming clans. We are first and foremost a group of friends, many of whom go back over 10 years. Most of us have met in person, rather than just the occasional banter on TeamSpeak or on this website. We've invaded each others homes for LAN parties, there have been marriages and unfortunately a funeral.
We are therefore more than a gaming community, and it is our friendship that binds us together. We don't want to jeopardise that, and unfortunately a couple of bad experiences have made us a little wary. We aren't playing a numbers game of how many people can we get wearing the [NTHW] tags, although we recognise that without new blood things can get stale.
Before we can properly consider anyone, we do need to have a chance to get to know you, so everyone in the clan can say "yes I consider him a proper friend". At the moment we just don't know you enough to do that.
At the time you posted this, you had been on our BF4 servers a few times. But, as now, there hadn't been much forum activity. I don't think anyone had seen you on Teamspeak. We don't want to say no to you, we'd want you to stick around and get to know you better.
So if you don't mind, please consider this a deferment of your application, not a rejection, and hopefully we can review it again in a couple of months.
