Yeah, a big thanks to Inyala because... nobody has donated unfortunately.

There already is an 'invisible' board that only Inyala and I can see. At the moment, all it has in it is the Society Manifesto. I moved it there, rather than deleting it when Raoul said he wanted it taken down for reworking. This board can easily be converted to an 'officers' board'. Also, administrative rights to the forum can be given to anyone who becomes guild leader (which, so far, looks like Darke!).

As far as the cliques... This is a hard thing to combat. Quite simply, when people come together, they get to know each other, form friendships, and talk to those that they're close to. Unfortunately, when new people join in, they're faced with a group of people who are already comfortable with each other. The mentors will help a lot to tug the new folks into these comfortable groups.

My 2 Cents

Post  Veleth on Fri May 23, 2008 11:05 pm

I know I'm fairly new to the guild, but I figured I'd throw my thoughts out there.
I don't know any of you well enough to make that kind of judgement yet.

I think maybe the guild needs to be scaled back some. There seem to be a lot of members and no guidelines that are followed. I've met up with several people and we've had great times running dungeons and RPing as we went.
Others don't seem to understand that in a RP guild you're tasked with defining a character who follows certain rules.

Perhaps each new applicant should have to submit a description of their character and RP with one of the senior guild members. In this way, the guild could see if they're there just to belong or if they're interested in roleplaying.

I think a mentoring program would be fantastic. Perhaps even a "apprenticeship" type environment wherein whatever character type you're developing can get advice from someone who already has walked that path. Our mages could help new mages. Our healers, new healers; etc.

I think that, although it may create small groups within the guild, it'll give some people a feeling of belonging, for those who may be feeling ostricized. By holding larger scale activies, (say at the bar in Emain Macha), we could improve guild member relations. They would have to occur on a regular basic, 2-3 per week so that those who are on at some times can go, whereas at other times they may not be able to attend.

Anywho, these are my thoughts. Smile

It'll be interesting to see how this works out~

Unfortunately, I have the unfortunate position of being in a time frame where usually folks are either asleep or afk which is one of the reasons I tend to miss out on the new folks and any of the guild happenings.

I agree with the suggestions about a program where new applicants get together with a senior member or someone who can just make sure they really want to RP and play with others.

Too often now a days I get together with new or even a month old guildies who don't work as a team in the dungeons. They get themselves killed and I really don't enjoy seeing them die or possibly dying myself though it is just a game. The main issue is, with a particular group recently with a guildie, I politely offered a suggestion on how the group could work more efficiently. They pretty much rejected my advice, were rude about it, and kept on doing it their way. I am not trying to turn this into a complaint section but simply mention an incident where current members are unwilling to work together, listen, or even be polite to others. This is not the only incident I have been in.

Also I agree that Kaly, Raoul, and Kahlen would make great officers. And it would be a good idea to have an officer section to discuss matters, but seems yall already have that now.

*clears his throat* Sorry about that.

Some of the security settings I ran in FireFox kept me from seeing a lot of things on the site (and other places).

Since for the interim I'm not using FireFox (It was literally, taking links I'd try launching in IE and stealing them, to open in new tabs!) since I'm not doing case loads at home for the next few weeks anyway.

I will miss the chance to talk to people who've left and aren't playing, but, my hope is that when the dust settles they'll meander back and strike up conversation.

Real life hits us all, hard sometimes, not so hard others. We come to play games because we enjoy them. When it stops being a reliable source of entertainment and fun, and becomes a job, it's time to step back and reconsider your personal picture of how things are, and find what it's going to be able to enjoy this, the game we have in front of us.

I think, at this point, we're all waiting for people to stop jerking around and actually transfer leadership so things can begin to reform.
