Hello, and welcome
This post is meant to give you a bit of info about the clan, our recruitment process, and to let you know what to put in your application.
First off, let me welcome you to the forums! In many ways these are the heart of the clan - we have many members who don't play the latest game with us but are still active on here. Please do acquaint yourself with forum rules of conduct in the "Read Before Posting" section.
Secondly, if you're reading this that means you probably want to be in OFPR. Good choice. This is the best clan out there. But this is as much a family as a clan, and some of our members have been here for more than a decade. So, of course, getting into OFPR isn't based on skill at whatever game we're playing at the moment (although having some helps!). We pick new recruits mostly based on how well they'll fit into our family: personality and dedication are what we value.
On the topic of family, a special thanks is owed to the following OFPR members for all they do:
- BikeThief: Leader of the clan.
- Agent Orange: Our head tech honcho.
- Shitty: Resident drunk & admin.
- RagingOrgyNuns: Forum grammar Nazi (who is not afraid to edit your posts).
As you probably know, OFPR hosts our own servers
. These change as time go by, but the full list of our servers can always be found on our forums
. These are paid for by some of our members, and if you want to help them out, you're more than welcome to donate. More information on donating is here
. As well, we host a Vent/Mumble server
that is open to all - so come join us when you're playing. You can also join our OFPR Regulars
Steam Group to wear the RODS tag and get to know more of those who play on the server.
Now that you've got some background, you're ready to make your application post! You can do this in whatever format you'd like, but here are some things that you can include:
- What game(s) do you play
- Which OFPR members you know
- Who referred you to join
- Other ways to reach you (ex: Steam profile)
- Where you live
- What you do
- And anything else you want to share with us
You are not limited to just those few things, but the more information included in your application will be better as an introduction for us.
Once you've applied, stay active on the forums and server. The most important thing is that we all get to know you! If we like what we see, we'll offer you an invite to our OFPR WB (wannabe!) stage. This stage is our tryout stage: you get to wear the tag, and we try and see if you're a good fit. If you are, you'll be promoted to being a full member.
Good luck with your application :)
