Roster Updates - Removals

by Poisonenvy, 6 days ago

 

Reminder of rules for "inactive" removals and public notes:

"Inactives" are those who have not been online for a substantial period of time - usually 6+ months, although the majority of ranks are eligible for removal after one month inactive, especially if they have not been particularly active within the guild even when they were online.  Characters linked to others in the guild roster using the "Alt" public note are all checked to ensure that all characters have been inactive for some time. 

The only people able to amend your public note now are you, when you're on that character, or an officer.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ALL YOUR ALTS ARE MARKED AS SUCH.

Characters that have nothing in their public notes linking them to other characters are much more likely to be removed for inactivity (as all linked characters are checked for activity prior to removal for inactivity).  Members who have not registered with this website are much more likely to be removed for inactivity.

Please also do not add anything in the public note section of your alts, other than the "main" character name.  You may, if you wish, add your real name/nickname against your "main" - but no other information.  Gear scores, roles, professions, etc .. all often change and should not be included.  See the Guild Rules for additional information.

Anyone completely removed from the guild roster, who then wishes to rejoin the guild, are welcome to complete a new application form, where they are advised to mention they were a previous guild member.

Some long term inactives will occasionally be placed in the MiA (Missing in Action) rank.  These are people who we feel (or have told us) they may come back, and were long term members prior to that.  When someone is placed on MiA, only one character is kept in guild and the rest are removed, however, if/when they do return, they do not need to reapply, they will be moved out of MiA to Cub (instead of Pup as would have been the case if they'd been removed previously), and they can immediately request for their alts to be reinvited (at Pup rank).  Those in MiA get a longer time away from the game before being considered for removal completely.

Occasionally we will remove members for reasons other than inactivity.  These reasons vary from obvious incompatibilty with the guild to being offline/uncontactable/unresponsive yet causing admin issues in some way, for an extended period of time. 

 

 Following on from the last Roster Update, and as the new expansion launches tonight, I've removed the following members (and their alts) for inactivity:

Forcedmage, Locton, Robustus, Pricehuntres, Safirra.

If any of these wish to return, they should fill in an application, mentioning that they were a previous guild member. 

THIS INCLUDES IF THEY HAVE AN ALT INVITE STUCK PENDING IN THE GUILD FINDER INTERFACE!!

Roster Updates and Inactivity Warning

by Poisonenvy, 17 days ago

 

The following roster updates have been made today:


Promoted from Pup to Cub:

Azzuma, Bigbadjon, Biinqbonq, Biinqi, Calian, Cho, Deathfox, Exessive, Fusionblade, Idah, Kitami, Lissé, Lucyfuré, Meggu, Raejya, Raella, Roxshifter, Ryssa, Sarphedon, Tastemachu, Trident, Voltsari, Zahara, Zorty.

Promoted from Cub to Juvenile:

Aglion, Atlane, Biinq, Blug, Druzy, Elrik, Heinz, Islay, Kazaru, Lougiio, Nandydandy, Nandysmashy, Sorche, Syroxy.

Promoted from Juvenile to Wolf (alts added to Wolf Alt):

Dithiil, Emong, Tirmaniel/Kalafrak.

For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild info.  If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.

If you have ANY character in the Wolf or Wolf Alt rank, and have alts invited into the guild, please remind an officer to promote your new character to the Wolf Alt rank.  Once you have reached the "Wolf" rank, all additional characters should automatically be given the Wolf Alt rank.  (and when I say "automatically" .. I mean we still have to do it manually, but it's not something your new character has to work for ).  If you do not have a character at the Wolf/Wolf Alt/Werewolf rank, then any alts invited into the guild should join as a Pup.  Please ensure you have a note in your public notes in the roster, showing your "main" name.

Please note:  Your "main" name is NOT the character you currently play the most.  It is simply, in the majority of instances, the character you FIRST JOINED WITH.  We have to have some way of linking all of your characters together, so this is how we do it.  If you don't feel comfortable with this process, look at it as more your "first" character and "subsequent" characters.  It's just easier to call them alts, than "subsequents" image

Please note that all characters have recently been removed from the Werewolf rank and placed back at Wolf/Wolf alt, in preparation for the new expansion.  Once we start raiding again, this rank will start being used again.

Fair Warning: As occurs just prior to every new expansion, I will be removing long-term inactive members (working on the assumption that anyone wishing to come back for the expansion, would be back by then to take advantage of pre-patch time).  Anyone who has given me prior notice that they would be AFK until Dragonflight will have their notes removed and normal inactivity rules will apply - unless they've already notified me they're going to be longer.

Roster Updated and Inactivity Warning

by Poisonenvy, 19 days ago

Our Werewolf rank has now been reset. This means that all characters that were in that rank have now been returned to either their Wolf or Wolf Alt ranks. All this means is that you no longer have access to the raider tab in the guild vault (which is currently empty anyway) and there are reduced repairs (to help balance the fact that the guild is currently receiving less income). Once we start raiding in Dragonflight, characters will be placed in this rank again based on how often they raid with us (assuming they're already at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank).
 
For guild members who are currently away from the game - please note that any with a note stating "away until Dragonflight" will shortly have that note removed. Just prior to Dragonflight launch on the 28th November the guild roster will be cleared of inactive members. I will, of course, check linked alts, but anyone who has been inactive for a considerable period of time, if you're still showing as inactive on the 28th prior to the launch, then you will be removed from the guild.
 
For information:
 
* for members who are at a cub rank or lower (with their maximum ranked character), I'm going to be considering removal of those inactive for 4 months or longer as at that date.
* For those at Juvenile it will be 5 months.
* For those at Wolf/Wolf Alt rank it will be 6 months.
 
Basically because I want to be able to get the roster ready for Dragonflight, and I don't want to be doing it whilst also actually levelling/gearing up.

Dragonflight Launch Schedule Announced

by Poisonenvy, 47 days ago

Blizzard have confirmed that the pre-patch will launch next Wednesday (please note, the dates above are US dates).

 

"Every new adventure begins with a single step, and the journey to the Dragon Isles is nearly here when the first of two pre-expansion patches go live with the completion of regional realm maintenance beginning October 25.
 

Phase One: October 25

  • Talent System Revamp:Dragonflight contains major updates to World of Warcraft classes, centering on the re-introduction of talent trees. The new talent system empowers players to make creative and meaningful talent choices without compromising their effectiveness—and most importantly, it gives them meaningful options at every level.
  • Heads-up Display User Interface (HUD UI) Changes: Players will experience an updated User Interface (UI) and Heads-Up Display (HUD), allowing customization of the base UI and providing a modernized appearance to the layout and view while maintaining the original design’s charm and personality.
  • Accessibility Features: A variety of new features that will include “press and hold” spellcasting, interact keys, gamepad support, and more.
  • Rated Solo Shuffle: First introduced as a PvP Brawl, we up the stakes by adding the ability for players to earn (or lose!) rating with the introduction of Rated Solo Shuffle. Players will be able to earn seasonal rewards and achievements, credit toward Vicious Mounts, weekly great vault progress, and Conquest similar to Rated Battlegrounds and Arenas. Cross-faction play will also be enabled.
  • New Class and Race Combinations: The rogue, priest, and mage classes will become available to all races to create and play.

Phase Two: November 15

  • New Race/Class: Dracthyr Evoker Available: Players will menace their foes (or empower their allies) as the new dracthyr Evoker, World of Warcraft’s first-ever race and class combination. Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind.
  • New Zone: The Forbidden Reach: Play through the starting zone for WoW’s newest hero class, the Dracthyr Evoker
  • New Dungeon: Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr: Located in the Badlands within the Eastern Kingdoms, players will venture into Uldaman to lay claim to a legacy of knowledge left behind by the titans. This ancient titan facility is where, long ago, allies of the heroic Keeper Tyr hid the Discs of Norgannon.
  • In-Game Events: Primal Storms: Ward off attacks from the Primalists with new quests and world events, setting the stage for Dragonflight’s launch.
 
Stay up to date with all things Dragonflight on the official World of Warcraft website."

Heroic Jailer Down .. New Mount!

by Poisonenvy, 51 days ago

Massive congratulations to everyone who made tonight possible - including those who could not make it tonight, but who helped progress us through Heroic Sepulcher in order to get us to this point.  Commiserations to those who really wanted to come tonight, but couldn't due to other commitments. 

Tonight may well have been the last chance we had for this mount, and we got it 5 minutes before raid end time (although there was some talk of simply not stopping until we killed him!).  There were some fun moment along the way .. essentially the majority of the fight was a comedy show of people doing daft stuff and swearing at themselves - usually involving walking straight into large glowing holes :P  It was a good laugh though, and was well worth it for arguably one of the cooler mounts in the game:
