Create a new thread in this very forum section using the EXACT in-game name of your main character and paste part 2 (the questions) into that thread. 2. Answer all questions as and when asked. Keep in mind this is your first impression with most members of Hard Knocks, taking a couple of extra minutes to spell check, grammar check, and properly format your application makes a better impression on us. Paste as plain text - Sometimes forums gives text a weird background Do not bother applying in-game without being told to do so by a recruiter Part 2 - The application form. Section A - General info
