Strata,Well, I think we should let them stay as long as they want as long our fellowship has open slots. But, with that in mind we should "make the rounds" on a regular basis to those members that make regular help visits and try to keep a mental note to those that don't advance. If we get to maximum members then start weeding out the players that don't seem to advance at all. After all, member count does affect out Fellowship ranking.
Aspirants: As Ambassadors, Mages and Archmages, together we should make a concentrated effort to qualify "vette" our aspirants.
I propose that we divide our aspirant list and contact them.
Copy and Paste this phrase into any communication you have with the aspirants.
Greetings! This message is from the Savǿir Faire Felyᶇđral Fellowship. We are contacting you today to determine if you would like to join our fellowship. We have visited your city and have deemed that you would become a valued member. Please accept the invite for our approval. If we receive no response within 7 days, your invitation will be deleted from the date of the message transmission. Thank you for your time on the matter.
I don't need to keep a mental note. I scroll back through all my notifications and see how far they date back. I see whose names are appearing the most on the list. Most of the time, as I understand, this is to be a daily or semi daily process. 4 days a week at least, but we have many players that seemingly never appear on my notifications. (I always visit notifications first and then FS. It helps me determine who is and isn't visiting) I've not wrote it out yet, but I will. (I like detailed notes.)
May I suggest a small edit?
Instead of Thank you for your time on the matter. Can we say something like "Thanks for your consideration."?
