It actually was a total misunderstanding. You were actually hired. Here's the response from our recruitment officer:
"I had actually accepted it at first, but when I went to add him to the guild in-game he was listed as already in another guild. I don't think I mis-typed anything as I did a copy of his @name and his char name is pretty short... But that is why I marked it as declined with a reason of joined another guild.
I am more than happy to have it re-opened and the application accepted if I was wrong about the other guild thing as he seemed like a good fit "
Our guild site has a dropdown with reasons for a decline so if you didnt get it then something must have happened between point A and B (your spam folder or maybe the network never sent it)
So there ya have it! I read your app and thought you'd be a terrific fit so MUCH APOLOGIES and if you are still interested in joining -- we'd LOVE to have ya join us!
PS: I re-opened and accepted your app!
