The Band of Brothers has switched to a sponsor
system for joining the club. The only way to gain entry into Band of Brothers
is to get a current member to sponsor you.
Any Band of Brothers member that has received
full-member status and is not being sponsored himself, may sponsor a person
for membership in the club. If you do not know a current member, you can start by emailing GreyWolfBoB, and a sponsor will be located for you.
The membership e-mail must include a brief description of how the sponsor (current member) knows
the new person and the “Big 5” for that individual:
1) The new person's real name
2) Proposed BoB Name (this must be identical with
the Yuku* account name)
3) His location
4) E-mail address
5) His complete telephone number (with international
country code). This number will not be published on the member list, it
is just for communication / identification purposes
This helps us tracking all new members through
the probationary period described below. The new member is expected to
play and finish a CM game with his sponsor. Next, the sponsor will guide
the new player to the instructions on how to join Yuku so we can make the
new member’s proposed BoB name official. Once accepted to Yuku, the
new member must make his Yuku access application post (this procedure is
explained in the FAQ
section). Once this is done, we will enter the new player into
the BoBster allowing the new player to register games. A confirmation email
will be sent to the new player and his sponsor. This is a perfect time
for the sponsor to introduce the new member to the troops in the Open Discussion
Once admitted there will be a three month probationary
period for the new member during which the sponsor is responsible for the
new member's actions. If the new member causes problems its the sponsor's
responsibility to set the new member straight. At the end of three months
the new member's club participation will be reviewed and assuming there
have been no problems the sponsorship will be dropped and the new member
becomes a full member of the club. The new member must complete at least
one game during his probationary period or he will be dropped.
Now, if you are still interested in becoming a
member just go to our "List of Members"
page using the link to the left. There is a column on the list labeled
"Sponsor"; if it says "Yes" than that member would be willing to
sponsor you. Just pick one of them, click on his nickname, and email him
your desire to join up and request a game. If the member you have chosen
is unable to play for any reason just move on to another one. I'm sure
you'll have a game going in no time and on your way to becoming a member
of the club. One exception: people who are in their 3-months probationary
period (green color) cannot sponsor new recruits.
More infos about sponsoring and about getting
a Yuku account be found in the FAQ
section of our message board.
*) Yuku provides the software for our message
board - thus every member must get himself a free
Yuku account. Note that the "SIGNUP" button at the top of the Yuku forums above the "WE BAND OF
BROTHERS" banner can also be used to get your free Yuku account.
