Sorry, but in my opinion, it's not really the fault of the person that took the item from a public gbank tab. Things that are in the open areas are there for guild members to use, and they should not be required to ask for an item if they have withdrawal rights in that tab.If an item's misplaced in a tab, then it's the fault of the person who placed it there.If the officers have a problem with people withdrawing things, they should set the bank to 'deposit only'.

I disagree with you. We have all seen a similar scenario, and there's real-world applications as well. Everyone has seen something like this happen, when an epic gets placed in plain sight in the guild bank - available for anyone to take. The thing is, anyone looking at it, knows that it wasn't supposed to be there. It was clearly a mistake and something that the guild needed. All too often, the people that end up taking these items have never contributed anything to the guild bank - and more often then not - anything to the guild at all. They simply take without any thought to the consequences to the guild.The generosity of 85% of the guild is often taken advantage of by those that log in to their alts that happen to be in your guild every month or so. Items that other guild members could really use disappear, to boost the rep or dps of a character that someone plays once every couple months when they're bored. I have seen the type of player that sent this email in, and they are never concerned about the guild. They're only concern is themselves and the entitlement that they feel comes along with a guild tabard.

Eh, I've put purple patterns in the regular tab of the gbank before. If I can't use it, may as well let someone in the guild who can use it have it (patterns in question were SSC drops for BoP craftable items)Guess it all depends on what his guild's policy is.

Vlatch, I have to say you're 99% correct in your read.Except the 85% decency part you mentioned. It's relative to the guild. ;)You can see his/her/its only concern is about getting into another guild, and what can be done for them. (Whilst passively placing blame on the officers by stating the situation in that manner.) I suspect there's a lot more going on here then they care to mention for the sake of looking innocent/ignorant.I'd like to know what recipe too.

Agreed. If you have a public tab that everyone as afree rights to, then expecting them to find and ask an officer before withdrawals is unreasonable. If you want them to check with an officer each time, make all of the tabs officer access only and tell people that they need to ask an officer who will get the item(s) and give them to the member. If you want a public tab, fine... but then the expectation is that people can take from that whatever's there. I'd also set the expectation that what you take and what you deposit should be roughly even over time.
