One more to go .. the Dark Lady herself. Wish us all luck!!

(all alts placed in Wolf Alt rank)

Promoted from Wolf/Wolf Alt to Werewolf:
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.
Long term inactivates have also been removed (including any alts):
Abre, Ayedaedra, Cauchy, Cyberfairy, Mixie, Bogdorull, Therissa, Clefthoof, Heironimous, Marnne, Necrous, Thaedys, Ngah, Pesterje, Santharian, Kylingsnurr, Cowsonmcmoo, Shianti, Grumpymatt, Scruff, Bullmorte.
"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.
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.
The following long-term inactives have been place in MiA and all alts removed:
Massive congratulations and thanks to everyone involved - we killed a new boss! Very nicely done
Big congratulations to everyone - we got another boss down! Very well done, and thank you to everyone who helped :-)
Guild members, can you please remember to be careful with your public notes in the guild roster. These are used in order to deal with the admin of the guild, including things like working out which members can be kicked for inactivity, which characters can be promoted.
Your "main" is simply the character you joined first with, in the majority of instances. There are a few exceptions - obviously if that character is deleted or transferred elsewhere, then you will get the option to choose a different "main", but other than that, the "main" is simply there in order to link all of your characters up. It links your characters to your membership on our guild website, to your nickname on discord, and all of your characters in the roster. I'm aware that some people have a "main" that is not currently the character they play the most. Some people will switch which character they play mainly, perhaps only once an expansion, others will do it regularly. It can potentially take a lot of admin in various locations to change which character is classed as "main" on our guild roster, and should not be done by the guild member themselves. We do not change the "main" in the guild roster lightly because, if we do it for one, we'd have to do it for all. Feel free to check out how many people have multiple alts, and try to guess how long it would take for us to change just one "main" for some of them.
Your public notes should ONLY show the following:
* on the character classed as your "main" for admin purposes, either nothing at all or, if you wish, a nickname you'd like people to refer to you as. (you can also use the addon Identity-2 to assist with this in guild chat).
* on all other alts, simply <"main" name> Alt.
No ilevels, no preferred roles or specs. If you accidentally (or intentionally) set one of your characters with a different naming convention to the others, it runs the risk of accidental removal/being overlooked during admin.
... but we were!
Congratulations everyone on a new boss kill
