The following roster updates have been made today:
The following members have been removed for long-term inactivity:
Calian, Raejya, Athious, Damasella, Caliburns, Clefthoof, Cowegg, Hema, Nomili, Roxuwu, Tides.
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 and/or leave our Discord 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.
**Please note that, due to changes that Blizzard is making in the background to the way the guild roster itself works, the inactivity threshold will be changing. Whereas previously I would be giving 2-3 months for those in Pup rank, if that's the only rank any of their characters was in, and 5-6 months for those with characters in any other ranks, in order to be able to maintain the roster I'm going to have to change this to the same level of inactivity regardless of those ranks.
Therefore, in future, any member who is shown as being inactive for three months or more, on all of their linked characters, will be eligable for removal.
For this round of removals, I have temporarily excluded a few more long term members from being kicked for inactivity, however, in future all members will be included. The only exception to this is if someone contacts me direct to notify me that they are going to be away for a set period of time, but intend to come back. They can choose to either be places in MiA, or I can set an exclusion from roster changes (removals, promotions, etc) for a certain period of time.
