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, 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.
Fair Warning: As occurs just prior to every new expansion, I will be doing a thorough update of the guild roster just prior to Dragonflight arriving. This entails the normal roster updates for promotions, but will also include a removal of all 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). This will EXCLUDE anyone who has given me prior notice that they would be AFK until Dragonflight - I'll give them a little more leeway, if needed.
Roster updates during this time will also invite a "Werewolf reset" ... everyone at that time in the Werewolf rank will be placed back in their Wolf/Wolf Alt ranks, to prepare the rank, and the guild vault raiders tab, for Dragonflight raiding. Once we start raiding again in Dragonflight, the Werewolf rank will once again start being populated by those characters who raid with us regularly and are currently at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank.
