There have been a lot of reports in towns of people greifing, messing with town property, and other such problems. This is my suggestion to stop that from happening...
-Ask others that have seen them online more often. What are they like and how do they act?
-See if there has been ANY player reports filed against them, might hint at what they'll be willing to do.
--Still let new members join but keep a close eye on them for the first few days. Most people that join are really nice and excellent people (ex. Bri, Seanos, RSM, etc) but there are those few that get banned in the first few days.
THIS IS MY SUGGESTION TO LESSEN THE AMOUNT OF REPORTS FILED IN TOWNS. I don't think we should have to apply for towns but there are to many people joining towns and then griefing/screwing things up.
It hurts that this is a thing....
