Remember that if you do not include a "Yes or "No" along with an explanation of your vote (long/short/whatever), it will not be counted as a point either for or against the applicant.
If an applicant does not present enough information/visual stimulation to sway your vote one way or the other, please feel free to ask them for more.
Please try to remember that we are voting mostly on hotness of the dork in question and the rest on the dorkiness of the pictures submitted. Qualms on whether the applicant meets your personal definition of dork are irrelavent, since they have already proven themselves at _are_you_a_dork.
Make sure that we can see your pictures. While small, out-of-focus pics are annoying... most problems come from broken image links and remote loading issues. If you don't know how to post pictures, please refer to this FAQ.
Remember, we are dorks... and in being that, we are by default, silly creatures. While scans of your Glamour Shots™ are all fine and dandy, being a dork is 99% personality... and your pics should represent that :)
Proper use of the English language and an easy-to-read format aren't necessary, but it will help a great deal. The most effective way seems to be paragraph format, using complete sentences and a visit to the spell-checker.
Don't be shy... or else, why apply?
Disclaimer: Dorks are friendly and inviting by nature... and so shall be this community. Please refrain from personal attacks. If an argument is coming down to semantics and/or grammar, that is a pretty good sign it's dead; let it go. There is no need to be a prick. If any mod feels you are out of line, they have the right to ban you, whether you be stamped or not. If you have been banned and feel this is unfair, you may take it up with other mods... or go cry to your mama.
Breaking any of the above stated rules is punishable by banning.
