Mae govannen, Irfae! Welcome to LMB! I believe I have seen you at concerts, have I not? Always fun to meet another lover of music and dance!

She appreciates music and can dance! Why should aught else matter?
To my mind, we need answer only those two questions to weed out the trolls.
(I kid, of course. Some asshats are clever. But, I think the application process is just to determine whether someone understands what LMB is for, and to give kin an opportunity to call BS on someone who they know from previous interaction to be undesirable. Even so...I would say, from my limited interaction, that Irfae is one who gets it...at least well enough for LMB to try giving her a go.)

Greetings, Irfae! Your application has been accepted. The next step is to find an officer in game for a recruit interview. The easiest way would be to /joinchannel alesandtales and ask if a LMB officer is available. We do look forward to enjoying Middle-earth with you!

I know a few people that have used me as a reference before, a couple people I really didn't know at all but who asked me about joining LMB out of the blue and I pointed them to the website, even though I knew nothing about them.
But I have had a chance to talk with Irfae and see her at music events for some time now, she really does go all out to participate in the community and I think she would make a great addition to our kin.
Glad you got your application in Irfae and goodluck!!
