It is unfortunate to see such cynical comments about fairness and GL's. It may be possible that some with negative posts are not in a guild that is a good fit for them. I am a GL (casual-crusaders.net on Echo Isles), and our members DO OWN the guild! Are you kidding? I may be able to boot people, etc. , however there will be mutiny and mass defections if I don't manage our people and resources well. Any wise GL will manage it so the members have ownership, otherwise, why would they care? I also inherited my guild so the story above is one I can relate to. The wrong people in the wrong places, favorites, no clarity etc. I just kept encouraging the peeps that "get it" and those that didn't "get it" moved onand we grew by word of mouth. A post above "The wet-dream of the guild leader. But really, the ranks only work to separate the haves and the have-nots." is either a shining example of how poorly run many guilds are or a good example of the kind of attitude that destroys guilds. Our officers do have perks, however they WORK for them. I suggest that if you are not in a guild built on fairness and members WORKing for their perks, you are in a guild doomed to fail. Also to the guy considering a "punishment" rank...Imho, a punishment rank doesn't work. If someone demonstrates such poor behavior that you don't want them using gchat, why keep them in your guild? My experience has taught me that people that cannot behave in gchat, don't behave well outside of gchat either.
