As previously promised, I've finally gotten around to removing some inactive accounts from the guild.
These are all members who have not logged on to any of their guild characters for at least 7 months .. some as long as 2 years. If any of them wish to return in the future, they're welcome to reapply and mention that they were previously a member.
Those removed are:
Javiers, Maelynn, Reeva, Tomoya, Vem, Crunchalot, Bawlsax, Palmei, Waterspirit, Kimchiheals, Fortreas, Caladan, Malcobo, Shinyteef, Polarized, Osis, Shakazulu, Abdullah, Druzan, Sylvii, Arkylax, Akromarus, Xayliah, Eddymage, Kernowspal.
All of their alts, if they had any, have also been removed.
Please do ensure that all of your alts are marked as such. When I check for removals, I check the last login date of all of the characters linked to an account - if you're on an alt that isn't linked to your account, and your other characters remain dormant, they may get removed by accident. I realise it's not as easy now that Blizzard have removed the option to add public notes to other characters unless you're an officer ... but you can still either ask an officer to do it, or add the note yourself, when you're on the character in question.
Also ensure that the ONLY thing in your public notes is the link info, ie, "<name's alt>". Anything else makes maintaining the guild roster more difficult. Regularly ignoring this request may result in your removal from the guild. Thank you.
Big congratulations everyone .. two new bosses down, and we'd never practiced them before! Thoroughly enjoyed them .. although we did discover that apparently tanks are allergic to water!! (We also practiced on Jaina, who confirmed that theory!)
Looking forward to next week
Congratulations everyone ... a very successful raid night with two new bosses down!
Unfortunately I'm an idiot and although I could have sworn we got together for pics after Conclave .. I just can't find them. Blame it on the amount of brain oozing out of my face!
We did, however, make up for that by lining up for two seperate photos after King Rastakhan. Well, we couldn't pass up on having a pic with Bwonsamdi :p
Congratulations everyone .. we got a new boss down!
Opulence is a weird two phase fight where it seemed the main problem was staying alive before you got to the boss! Easy when you know how
As a bonus .. not only does this boss drop the usual loot .. but also shoots out loads of grey trash loot too .. which can be worth a gold or few
Congratulations to everyone involved for their hard work and preparation for tonight - it was a really fun raid, even if we had to become alliance for part of it (pfft).
Three new bosses down, along with an individual achievement gained:
In preparation for the new raid I've updated the forums a little to split the raiding section from the general guild section - this makes it easier to keep the various raiding forums organised. I've also posted tactics from wowhead and videos from Fatboss, into their own boss tactics forum where anyone is welcome to add suggestions or updates for each of the relevant bosses.
If there are any problems, please let me know.

For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild rules. If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.
If anyone regularly raids and was already (prior to today) at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank, and wasn't placed in the Werewolf rank, please let me know. Anyone who regularly raids and who has been promoted today to the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank will then be reviewed at the next set of promotions.
Apologies for the length of time it's taken to get the roster promotions sorted .. I'll try to get the next one done sooner
I will also, at some point in the near future, be looking at removing some members who have been inactive for a considerable period of time. Please do ensure that all your alts are marked up as such on your public note in the guild roster to prevent any being removed by accident.
