Fired is a bad term I think to use, this is a game not real life. Yes, there are requirements and certain criteria need to be set and this needs to be done up front and should be part of the guild bylaws. And in saying that, I think all guild bylaws need to be reviewed and updated if necessary at least once a month. One option was not mentioned in the article and that was to let the player know that you would love to raid with them but that there are still issues that have not yet been taken care of that have been addressed and that they have been given the opportunity to correct these problems. . We would love for you to raid with us and want you to be part of this guild, but that they are temporarily on suspension from raiding and that you will revisit this again at that time to see where they stand.One thing also to keep in mind is that if this individual has always been a good performer and their performance slacks off, there could be real life issues going on. So make sure that this is addressed to see if this is one of the things that could be causing raid performance problems.

I agree, this option should've been recommended. I think we sometimes forget that the druid who can't stay out of the fire is a real, living person on the other end. Yes, we all want to succeed and get new achievements and loot, and sometimes it's just not possible to do it with certain people in your raid. I actually agree with most of the suggestions in this post, but when you start using terminology like "fired", it's one more step towards reducing the fun social environment into something that smells suspiciously like work. Yes, I know this is the way it has to be in the more serious hardmode guilds, but those of us who are not going to be getting the "A Tribute to Immortality" achievement anytime soon, we still view our raid members as friends, not employees.
