Any applicant who is unknown to the majority of the existing members will remain an applicant for two months. The purpose of the extended time is two fold: first, to establish a firm concept of the applicant's character. Second, to ensure the applicant will remain interested and active for a long time. In special circumstances, an outstanding applicant may earn a vote after one month's time.
At the end of the process, a vote for all current Brothers will be held. Every single Brother must unanimously agree to see the applicant through. We are a unit, and if even one brother cannot see the applicant as a person he would call brother, than we stand by him in his decision.
