*Sigh* Wish more people would notice Entei's thread before making posts. There are so many people that don't see it and don't use an easy-to-read application.
In all honesty, the application is only half of it. If someone offers something that hosts don't want, nobody will accept it. And if someone isn't professional enough, it seriously doesn't matter if they're using a template or not; they're going to get rejected equally.
Thank you for this amazing post. I've been tired of telling people who want sponsor what I would like/not like from them to get a server sponsored from me and why I wouldn't or would sponsor them a server.
P.S. Congratulation on being promoted to Sectional Moderator!
There are now so many sponsorship posts, that maybe a new category "Sponsorship Requests" could be implemented?
That'd be quite counterintuitive, in my opinion. If such a section existed, it'd probably be largely ignored by most hosts, and the truly good sponsorships would just be piled up in there, never seen. This is just me, but I kinda like the current system more.
I am still kind of confused, do I just send an email to the website owners to host my server? If so, then how do I put plugins on?
This is only a general guide detailing the process of getting a host to sponsor you, nothing more. Plugins are something that's dependent upon the specific host, as different hosts use different control panels.
The methods of submission can vary. Your best bet would to be to create a topic in the Hosting Requests subforum with your application inside it. That way, it's open for everyone to see and decide upon. However, if you know that a certain host is offering sponsorships, you could also PM, E-mail, or submit applications some other way. It honestly depends on who you're doing business with
