Check for applications to your ladder

If your ladder is open only to specially invited players, do not forget to regularly check for new applications. This is done in the menu ”Ladder Manager/Settings/Applications”. If a player has applied for your ladder a red mark will appear in this menu, indicating that you should process the application promptly. You do this by clicking on ”Applications”, and then accept or rejct the application.
