So. This is kind of a ridiculous idea (yes, already pointed out in thread title, forgive the redundancy). But I’ve seen quite a few threads on the forum from players looking for more members to join their alliances. Apparently some alliances are having a hard time finding people to join.
Meanwhile, in another wacky alternate universe, I’m the alliance leader in a very private and exclusive alliance. We’re very fancy, we all wear fedoras and have long-winded discussions on the possible implications of re-introducing genetically engineered long-beaked storks to the native, untouched marshes of Atlantis.
Not really. But we are a private alliance, and I have less than zero desire to bring in and train new players (based on prior experience with new players). I am constantly having to reject random people who try to join my invite-only alliance, and I don’t like it. Not only do I not like being constantly bothered by join requests from people I don’t know, but I also don’t like having to reject them (because it’s not nice).
When they request to join, they are allowed to enter a message of some kind. However, I’m not able to send a message back when I reject them. I think it would be nice if there was some way for me to reject them with a message something along the lines of, “sorry, we’re not looking for new members at this time, but X alliance is, you should really check them out”.
That would double as a shameless plug for the countless alliances in desperate need of new members while also kindly letting the rejectees know that their rejection was not personal.
