I tend to view lengthy application or vetting processes by online guilds with a very long eye. I'm generally very busy and rarely have time to play the game, much less jump through hoops outside of one. However, I'm glad I took the time to go through the process with PAX gaming.

The use of a communal forum thread to get to know candidates (and most importantly for candidates to get to know the guild) is actually a stroke of genius. Its as simple as answering a few fun and non-obtrusive questions every few days when you have the time. It gives you a forum outside of the game itself to get to know the PAX community and to allow them to get to know you. Very easy and very efficient.

While PAX Dominus & Imperius are guilds that exists within the SW:TOR community, the guilds are part of a larger "guild" community that exists across multiple titles and genres. The cross title organization is also a stroke of genius, and the application process allows you to interact with people that may not even play SW:TOR. Interesting people you may not have otherwise had the opportunity to interact with.

Might be for you, might not, but either way its pretty fun and worth a shot.
