To the pilots: please don't direct people to PM the Character Applications account anymore - that account is checked infrequently. The new form page will notify me directly whenever an application is submitted to CAZ, and we should be able to turn them around much faster from now on.
To the staffers: pending applications can be reviewed and approved or rejected via the site console (not the forum ACP!). No longer will you have to go through the arduous process of setting up a pilot's page or (more recently) adding the pilot to the CAZ pilots database. Instead, a single button press will accept or reject the pilot. If you don't know what the console is or how to access it, inquire with Halen. Note that you will still have to transfer the pilot to the "pilots" group on the forum manually.
Additionally, whenever there are applications outstanding, a large, red message will appear at the top of the main page (just under the achievements box) notifying everyone. Staffers can additionally opt to receive email notification whenever CAZ receives a new application. If you wish to receive such notification, inquire with Halen.
