"I'd also like the ability to set up a guild tent. Charge me 5k gold, but give me the ability to have a tent at the faire where we could recruit, give away items or allow our crafters to provide their services."This.If we can get a chance to show what our guild can offer at an in-game event it would be easier to recruit more people. When advertising in tradethat saying you've come a certain way in raiding (like 10/12 ICC 10HC) that doesn't say what kind of people there are in the guild.By showing up at an in-game event like the Darkmoon Faire you can show all you have to offer and also meet people and have some friendly chat to let them know you more.Excellent example of how to spice up an event like the Darkmoon Faire and Brewfest (during which you can have some drunken fun too, like drunk PvP-tournament :P)

would also be pretty cool if they implemented some good items that can only be crafted during these times, in the designated faire area, can't be AH'd and if held for more than 2 hours becomes soulbound, would make an awesome swapmeet style feel to this part of the game.

@ George:What great ideas! That's starting to get really creative, and while I don't know if they'd be able to implement something like that anytime in the *near* future, I definitely hope you have suggested this somewhere on the official forums or wherever such a suggestion might get some notice. I think it would be so beneficial and fun, especially since the Darkmoon Faire happens every single month. You'd think it would have gotten a bit more attention by now, considering all the cool things they do to make the once yearly holidays and festivals more interesting and dynamic.

I hope they incorporate some more of the community work into the game... I'd love for guilds to have the ability to create & distribute items, not unlike the Gryphonheart addons. Guilds could have applications that a person can fill out in-game, or create their own emblems to distribute instead of using a 3rd party DKP interface, or informational brochures to prospective joiners. Interguild rewards could be given through a buff system. Your Invitation to the raid could be an in-game item that, when used on the specific date and time, would teleport that member to the raid zone.Rival guilds on the same faction could go through a process of going to war with one another, allowing for a secondary dimension of conflict. Other guilds with similar interests but different groups could go through a process of becoming allied, allowing shared perks, shared items or whatnot.But not only that, but the ability to buy in-game 3D nonconsumables like Tents, Freestanding Vendor signs (giving a player an actual vendor interface... 'cause you've always wanted to be a cheese vendor), Benches/chairs/furniture, profession items like anvils/forges/potion racks/scroll racks, would be fantastic. Especially in conjunction with, or even if used solely during, the Darkmoon Faire.

I have to say I'm not a fan of this idea. It's too... Second Life-y. Plus, I think this sort of thing would only work out if the majority of players had any sense of discernment. The mouth-breathing trade chat troll crowd that constitutes the bulk of the WoW player base would not be an ideal target audience for such a design.
