For more than half a decade, we have used your service and have lost dozens of players whom had thought their application was looked over when in fact, it was never sent.  When those applying to a guild as new users hit the "join guild" button/link, they are taken directly to the GP registration page:

Welcome new user!
Please fill out the form below to create your T A S C/GuildPortal account, which will allow you to apply to join the guild, as well as visit other guilds hosted by the GuildPortal Service.
Before continuing, please make sure you have read and agree to our Terms of Use and understand our Privacy Policy.
Be aware that any e-mail you may receive from GuildPortal is restricted to guild-related notifications such as event notices. We do not disclose the e-mail addresses of our users to any third parties and we do not send unsolicited advertisements.

MANY have thought this WAS the "application" or that notification would be sent to the actual guild, which is not the case.  After a bit of not receiving word, they often look for another guild they believe to be more proactive.  Please add a line indicating that there is another step and/or the link the the actual guild application.  Even better, implement something better to make the process more efficient and less confusing to some, so that no guild has to lose a potential great member over it.

Many thanks!
