Being one the guilds chosen, I'll try to explain as much as I can. We were contacted about this program almost a year ago now, and it has only now been launched. Eyonix, up until this point, just hasn't had the time needed that he wanted to devote to this program. But it has finally started, and so far going pretty well.
The Guild Relations forums themselves are actually quite different, from what I've seen, compared to the General, Class and RnD forums. There seems to be a lot more respect between posters, and for the most part it doesn't get trolled very often. It has been a bit of a sanctuary for a lot of people, but I'm not sure how it's going to survive when the program gets linked in the General Forums. Eyonix seems really excited and dedicated so far, and I hope his presence, and moderating will be enough to control more of the major problems with the WoW forums.
Rayeth, we've already seen a huge influx in numbers to our site. It's left to be seen whether it increases our potential for good applicants, though I'm sure our total number of applicants will rise dramatically.
Buiden, those beta invites were slightly different than this program. We received that letter as well as the invites through this program last year during beta. That letter I believe was just to a variety of well progressed guilds.
Anyways, our guild is really excited about all of this and look forward that what will come of this program in the future.
