Our Membership Process
Initial Steps
Recruit Period and the Vote

Step 4 - Spend time with LG

Once your email address has been verified in this manner you will already have be granted certain privileges such as the ability to log onto our web site and to browse and post to some of the forums.

At the same time our facilitators will be notified that you have applied for membership. They will post the gamertag of your sponsor and other information from the public information portion of your application onto our recruit forum. Only the public information will be shared. The post will include a request that the sponsor provide an introduction and verify that they are in fact your sponsor.

The sponsor should provide you with their gamertag if they have not already done so, and possibly some other LG member gamertags that you can add to your friends list. This will allow you to start to receive invitations or otherwise connect up in online sessions. This will give our members opportunities to meet and to get to know you better. Obviously this is important as it will allow you to be better known by those who will be voting at the end of this step.

From here there is a short period where members can discuss your registration request and share their experiences with you online.

Step 5 - The Vote

At the end of this familiarization period the web site facilitators will provide a place on our community forum where members can vote on your request for membership. The period between step 4 of the membership process and the actual vote should be no more than a month but please be patient. We tend to not rush this as it is a very important part of the process.

The votes will be recorded and if the voting goes your way, then according to our membership policy you will be granted membership. A web site facilitator will activate your account and you will receive another email message welcoming you. With that email message you will also be granted all member privileges where it regards viewing our web site content and the use of our other facilities such as the member areas of our community forum.

"Fast Track" to Membership

We also have a greatly shortened membership process that we call the "Fast Track". This process is set aside for people that we already know well from our association with other clans or other cases of long-term friendship. This works well when an overwhelming majority of the current members already know and are comfortable with the applicant.

Where it differs from our full membership process is that Steps 1 thru 4 can be completed by simply registering. So the whole deal can be completed within 5 days (the time put aside for voting) rather than the more usual 45 days.

For FT candidates we put a special emphasis on "No" votes and disregard the quorum requirement. The assumption is that membership for this type of individual is a "no-brainer". Even so we can't pretend to know everyone's thoughts so any "No" vote gets our attention to immediately re-visit whether the person should really be FT'd.

To be clear, any member can stop the membership process for a FT recruit by voting "No". We want to make the process quick, but not at the expense of members feeling that they are being "railroaded" into agreement on new recruits.

The rest of the process for FT's remains the same.

That's pretty much all of it! If you have questions concerning our membership process, please click here to complete and send your request using our contact form.
