We (the staff) are sometimes very busy, and we don't always check this section to see if the WIP apps are complete. Therefore we (the staff) will have this thread in place for all those apps that get finished. We (the staff) will check all apps that are reported done, and after that it will be up to fate whether the character is accepted or asked to be revised.
Please work with us on this. We'd very much like to have all the enjoyable characters. So once you're done with your app make sure to leave us a note here.
