|Please Fill out the Application/Survey!|
Ok, Think of it more as a survey than an application. Everyone gets accepted into this community, like it says above, this is just something we LIKE our members to fill out, so we can get to know you. Adding or removing questions, or not answering parts of the "application/survey" will not get you kicked out of the community.
