    Hello, my character in game (when I can finally log in) will be Bizaa. I am a friend of mesterjester's and I'm looking to join so I can join groups that he gets with anyone in this group.

    Quesions that need answered:

    What games are you currently play/looking to play with TOG?
    FFXIV

    What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played?
    I can't remember. Atari, NES, Commodore 64/128, something like that.

    Why do you want to join TOG?
    So I can play FFXIV with mesterjester and the rest.

    Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share.
    Mesterjester and I went to college together and we both played FFXI for a while. I played WoW for a long time, too, although not the most recent expansion. I don't have a ton of time to play, but I will certainly binge out on the game from time to time. If it stays interesting I'll play more, too.

    I'm not sure what else to say, I hope that's enough info for me to play FFXIV with you.

    Thanks!

    -Biz

    Bizaa,

    In order to become a full member of TOG, we ask that you read and agree to 3 very specific things. You have indicated in your application that you do not agree to all of our terms of becoming a member, as such your application will be denied.
    Please read this - http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum...ntial-members-please-read-before-posting.html
    If you would like to become a full member, please go to the 'User Cp' located towards the top of this window in the left hand corner just above your name in the first post, read and agree to the TOG FAQ etc, and make the adjustment to your application.

    I'll leave this post marked pending for a couple of days in case you'd like to make the adjustments :)

    So I guess I'm not clear about what the procedure for my situation is here.

    Part of this is because I could not make a character on the server that everyone is playing on in FFXIV and thus I have not been able to talk to anyone there, yet. One day when they let people transfer I will make that happen.

    Anyway, I only want to play in game with people on the behemoth server. Is "full membership" required for that? Also, the "application" procedure is unclear about the difference between full membership and whatever not full membership means.

    So my question is, I guess, do I need to apply to the forums in order to join the linkshell/group/company/FFXIV guild in the game, or can I just play when I can with them finally log in without that? I'm not really a forum person so I was applying assuming that I needed to do an intro here in order to even get in in game, which I'm not sure about, now.

    Thanks!

    -Biz

    I swear I know English...

    *Can I play with them when I finally join their server even if I'm not a full member on the forum?

    Go to your User CP and change the box that says "Requesting TOG Membership" and change it from NO to Yes and I'll get the rest sorted for you :)

    You can play with TOG members but not join the Guild until you are a Full member in these forums.
