Recruitment Process

There are only two ways of getting into YRN - Invitation and Application.

Invitation

This method of entry is only possible if all Leaders and Prestige Members unanimously agree to let someone into the clan.


The person will be contacted after the clan has reached an agreement and they will be given a formal invitation that they have the right to accept or refuse. This can only be done one time, however. For example, if a member is accepted via invitation and refuses, leaves, or is kicked from the clan, they can only return by applying.

Application

This is the way most people join YRN. They visit the forums, register an account, and create an application.


Application consists of three phases - Questioning, Polling, and Examination.

Questioning

The questioning phase is 72 hours (3 days) long at a minimum. At a maximum, this phase can take up to 120 hours (5 days). During this time period, members of the clan ask you various questions pertaining to your application. You are not obliged to answer any question; however, not doing so will lower the chances of you being accepted. The time of this phase depends on your speed and ability to effectively answer questions laid before you. In the case where an applicant takes longer than 5 days to answer a member's questions, the application will be Frozen.


If an applicant makes a fatal error on their application, then they do not go through or do not finish this phase at all.

Polling

This phase is where the members of the clan privately make votes as to whether they want you in the clan or not. This time period can last anywhere from 5 to 7 days, depending on member activity. In order to be accepted, you must receive 10 positive votes to be instantly accepted or receive a sum of 5 positive votes over the entire phase. On the contrary, you are denied if you receive 5 negative votes at any time or if the poll ends with any negative amount of votes.


If you get anywhere from 0 to 4 as a sum of all the votes on the poll, or receive more neutral votes than positive or negative votes, then another poll is started. This poll is ran for 5 days max and there are no neutral votes allowed. This ensures you will have a quick poll. But if the result is anything less than 5 positive votes, your application will be denied.


If an you pass this phase, then you are to be tested for your skills twice. A tester is assigned in the area you would like to be tested in and the next map is chosen by the tester. After each test, your kills are added up to a sum [with 40 being the maximum score]; you must achieve a sum of 30 or more. Failure to do so will result with your application being denied and you being removed from the clan. If you refuse or do not complete the test(s) within a timely manner, you are allowed to do so during the next phase.

Examination

At the start of this phase, you become an unofficial member of YRN. In order to get through this phase effectively, you have to abide by the rules of the clan and basically not do anything stupid. If you can do this for 15 days, then depending on the amount of requirements met, you are able to do one of two following things:

  • Not all met: You are allotted an extra 15 days to meet the requirements. If you do not meet the deadline, you are removed from the clan.
  • All met: You become an official member of YRN.
