Recently, the staff team has noticed that an increasing number of applications are being 'bumped' by players to move them back to the top of the board. Please do not bump your character applications.
Bumping your application does not mean that it will be looked at sooner. Staff are well aware of which applications have been responded to and which still require a response; some applications inevitably require more discussion than others, and this is something that cannot be helped.
As per the FAQ:
How long does it take for my application to be read & sorted?
Due to other responsibilities of those sorting applications, you may wait for a day or you may wait for two weeks. We try our hardest to give a prompt response, but sometimes it is not feasible.
Please, do not constantly ask us when we will be getting to your applications. We look over them in the order they are received, so do not worry you will 'lose' your spot.
Harassing anyone about when you will be responded to will result in the immediate denial of your application. If you have any questions, feel free to contact an administrator.
Please also be aware that approval times for Elsewhere applications may be delayed during the 'summer' months
(April/August/December), when student applications are also open. This is especially true during December. We often get a huge number of student applications during the summer months, and these will take priority, as we have a limited time frame within which we can accept them.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact an administrator.
