Does this mean that someone other than me is going to recruit? :P
I will, at least a little.

What should I change the bottom of the standard template to so that it doesn't sound like I'm the monarch?
I'd use the Text of the Call as it's a bit newer. I added the updated version I created and use at the bottom of the thread.

And I would just remove the title so that you just have your name.

    Yeah, feel free to change the message within reason if you think it's an improvement. :)

    Recruiting needs a spotlight. Right now you first have to figure out it's a guild and find the appropriate subforum, then you have to guess it's called "The Keepers of The Call", which is by the way soon dropping to the second page. I have been here for a while and even I get annoyed by how much I have to look for the information I need.

    My suggestion would be utilizing the navigation bar at the top, if not dedicated links for each guild, perhaps just a "Guild" link (under "Community", perhaps) to a post that lists and explains the guilds and directs to relevant subforums/topics.

    At the very least we need an introductionary topic in the Frosthold Castle so people don't have to go through the topics list and pray. (Search isn't much help when the most obvious word, "recruiting", isn't used even once in the Keepers' thread.)

    But wait, there's more! I'd really appreciate it if we could store our nation flags in our profiles. It would be a huge convenience for those of us who keep resurrecting our nations few times a years (and aren't they relevant enough to showcase?)

    We actually did away with all the guilds except for the RP Guild...there was never much interest in the other guilds, and it's a lot of unnecessary layers of management when there are few people involved. Most of the recruiting stuff is in Frosthold Castle now, which I admit needs to be better organized.

    I'll look into your suggestions for the future...are you wanting like an image upload to store your flag? A profile field? Something that gets the flag from NS?

    I don't think it says that anywhere in the Text of the Call, but I've got it now.

    Ideally an image upload, but if you don't want to stretch your resources too thin, even the option to link the flag from an external site would do the job just fine. Automatically fetching the flag from NS would defeat the purpose, since NS deletes your flag when your nation ceases to exist, and this my goal here is an easy backup to restore the flag.

    I've made some changes to how the front page of the forums render. If you're on desktop you shouldn't much of a difference unless you're on a really low resolution, but hopefully it'll improve how the page looks on mobile.
