There are currently 6 people who have joined our alliance and signed up to the forum but havent made their intro yet. In order to become a full member you have to make an intro thread. This is about the only requirement of the alliance that takes work but it is a requirement as we are aiming to be a supportive community more than a ogame army.
If your forum name isnt Yellow or you cant see the "General Alliance Discussion" forum etc. make an intro thread and msg one of the founders to activate you forum membership. Most of the ogame related stuff goes on in the part of the forum you cant see so I urge you to take the time and do it.
