The following roster updates have been made today:
Promoted from Pup to Cub:
Blodz, Blonada, Damasella, Hankmarvin, Juskrsham, Locton, Ohsheet, Oldsmall, Pitytheweak.
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"
If, prior to today, you were at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank, and regularly raid, and feel you should be in the Werewolf rank, please let me know and I'll check for you.
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. 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.
Since the changes to the way the roster and permissions work, it is much more difficult to ensure characters are correctly linked. Whereas previously anyone with invite rights were able to adjust your public roster note in order to add your "main" when you had an alt invited, this is now not possible. 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.
Guild Transfer Update:
The guild transfer, although unfortunately rather long-winded, has now completed. All temporary guilds have been emptied of members and have been kept to use as personal banking guilds. Any members who failed to transfer out and into the transferred guild following multiple warning and requests by the deadline have now been removed.
The guild that remains on Lightbringer is now, essentially, a "dead" guild. We do have some guild member alts in there, but I will be checking occasionally and removing long-term inactives. There is no bank access, no repairs, no recruitment. The main use for it, is to allow members of it to automatically rejoin our guild on Tarren Mill should they transfer.
Having said that - any member that IS NOT in our Tarren Mill guild, is no longer classed as a guild member. This means that they have been removed as a member from this website (removing their ability to view forums, but allowing them to once again apply in the future, if they wish), along with their membership of discord reverting to "Guest" (ie, they no longer have access to certain specific member-only channels). If anyone transfers from Dark Wolves-Lightbringer, directly into Dark Wolves-Tarren Mill, please notify me so that I can re-add your membership roles and rights, and reinstate your rank. Please DO log in to the new realm following the transfer, to allow the roster to update correctly.
Anyone who is NOT in our Tarren Mill guild, or planning to transfer from Dark Wolves-Lightbringer direct, but would like to join on a new character on Tarren Mill, please re-apply in the usual way.
