When you visit our ingame recruitment chat channel it's very important that you type something into the channel so we notice you!
We only have a few recruiters in there at any time and those people are usually busy with something else at the time and either chatting on voicecomms or in another text channel or just busy blowing something up. Most of us have several chat channels stacked up and we only give attention to those where we see the channel tab flash. If you join the channel and don't say anything, the channel won't flash.
No chat, no flash. No flash and you can be overlooked. Perhaps not ideal but we're a busy and active corp and we have only so much screen real estate.
So join chat channel InterSun and give us a hi or a wave. BTW, when you join the channel the first question we always ask is have you read the public sections of these forums. So feel free to open with, "Hi ISF. I've already read your public forums. I want to join."
