Informed the player the app was denied. He's shelving it for now.

Can we talk about the application a bit? Got some time?

I got a bit sure

We like the idea, the concept is solid. The only hold up has been something that we've seen as a point of concern around some of your pcs, and we believe it mostly just has to do with you being new to the server, and not having much experience. Something I personally think a concept like this you could resolve.
Tieflings/Aasmir are stronger than the average character, even when not supported by a faction. Its balanced out by some In Game Roleplay traits, usually manifested as stigma against that race, but also by the player playing the PC. I'm talking weaknesses that help represent the concept.
What you described are some solid weaknesses, what worries us is the fact that you want to be mechanically strong before displaying them.
On top of that, we have seen some behavior from you regarding pvp when it doesn't go your way where you get sour, which is fine - the problem is taking it out on the players. You can rant all you like to a DM. Its encouraged especially if you don't feel something was fair, but out of respect for the setting, and how easily it is to create a toxic environment, we would request that you keep this in mind, and if you see something or feel that something is unfair, bring it to us first instead of players.
If you can agree to those two things, youre green for go.

Few the displaying of the weaknesses, I can try to work on some type of introduction that cant highlight those flaws, maybe draw other players attention from the very start and help keep me cogniscent of those flaws from the get go. For the PvP angle, I can try to catch myself when I feel a bout of complaints coming on and bring it to either one of the story tellers or DMs. You can use this as a written agreement as to my agreement to such and take what measures you deem necessary if the team feels i did not live up to as necessary

What we really need is to actually see this in action first. We want you to run with a concept first that can display these qualities, strengths and weaknesses even when things aren't going your way, and if a conflict arises, the ooc feelings remain separate from character choice/ideals. After than we would approve something like this.
Basically just, show us what you can do on a pc, project your pcs skills, their strengths -and- their weaknesses, and keep your ooc feelings separate from in game actions and then we would be more than happy to move forward.
Does that make sense?

It does, though it does mean ill need to think of somthing for now while this one sits on the back burner. Which kinda is disappointing, really wanted to run adventure crew on the bard. I will need time to think of somthing before I can put another character that can demonstrate what the team wants

Well, maybe run with the same ideal as a humie or half elf or something? I think you've got this. Like I said this is just (in my opinion) an exposure thing. I spent 8 years before I even joined a NPC faction, I -hated- the dms because I felt their calls were unfair. I absolutely despised pvp because it always felt like the other guy didn't give a shit. This went on for... a long time for me. What ended up changing was I joined a group that didn't care OOC if they won or lost. Which to me was ... fuckn' weird. It was my perspective that it was only fun if we got our way.. But they showed me otherwise, and I feel I grew from it.
That was me though, and you got your own thing and your own feelings on shit, i'm just tryn to help.

I feel if i take the same idea and run it again it may feel bland for the next run if you get what i mean. Rather I try somthing else, maybe experiment on somthing rather than toake this idea and rehash it. Its what i usually do for fihgters anyway. And finding a group is tough at the moment for me at the moment. Players already seem to have their groups, and I dont mesh with evil playstyles. Playing evil jsut actually makes me feel bad

thats okay man, take your time, find a group you can respect and maintain a healthy playstyle with and just show us what you can do.
