APPLY TO MIDWINTER
The following is an application template that every application will use. Copy/paste the template, fill it out and post it as a new thread in the application forum. Be sure to fill in all the questions.
Once you have posted your application, your thread will be visible to raiding members of the guild as well as yourself, and we may use it to ask follow-up questions. Be sure to check back regularly and respond as needed. Once your application thread has run its course and we have had a chance to discuss it, an officer will get back to you to either decline or to set up an interview on mumble. This could take anywhere from a few hours to a more than a week depending on how busy we are, so please be patient.
If it looks like you spent about 20 seconds doing your application, do not be surprised if we spend less time than that declining. Please make an effort with your presentation and try to write coherently. Applications that lack detail have a very good chance of not going anywhere. In addition, parses are a must.

Average ping to Sargeras (i.e. Chicago servers)? What is your backup plan in case of an unexpected internet outage during progression?
Do you have an authenticator?
WCL parses or similar
What addons do you use? Do you have any coding experience to assist in creating custom WeakAuras and/or addons?
What made you consider applying to Midwinter?
Tell us about your last guild. Why are you choosing us over them? Do you have any references?
Tell us about the rest of your raiding history. What content have you cleared in the past? Which guilds did you do it with? Do you have any experience in guild leadership positions or other positions of responsibility?
Prove that you are as good as we expect. Go into detail about what makes someone a master of your current class/spec, and show us how that is reflected in your own logs.
What secondary specs or alternative characters do you feel you play at a similar level to your main? Do you have sufficient gear to be raid viable with these specs/characters? What recent experience do you have playing them? Would you be comfortable playing any of these alts as your main if you were accepted? Keep in mind we will require 2 alts for Emerald Nightmare.
What is your availability for raid testing sessions on the PTR/Beta, keeping in mind that these sessions are typically scheduled between 1pm and 7:00pm EST? Raid testing (and PTR in general) is an essential part of modern raiding, and we ask that everyone does whatever they can to make each testing session whenever scheduled.
Tell us about yourself. Show us the man/woman behind the character. Impress us, make us laugh. Convince us we want you in our guild. If you don't take the time to sell yourself, there's no reason for us to want to take you. We've worked hard to make this a great place to raid and demand incoming candidates prove they're committed to continuing that.
