As someone just starting a rping goblin guild and getting ready for Cataclsym (For Her Tallest! For Mida Silvertongue! DOWN WITH GALLYWIX!), this definitely was a article that I am going to bring up to my fellow shareholders (GMs), just as something to consider.Right now, we have discussed and plan to implement a policy that 'three months without notice, and your character will be removed to keep rosters clean. You can whisper to re-join.' However, we have the 'tell us and you will stay on' policy from the get-go. We all have crazy lives and drama, heck, one of shareholders (gm's) recently said she wouldn't be on as much for a bit due to rl drama. We all get this, which is why we are three gm's running things to catch up when the other has problems.However, we stress communication from the beginning. Our applications are long, if we have any issues we get in game and talk with the person over those things to make sure everything is cool, and already have a fairly active forums (and our goblins aren't even made yet!).I think the important thing is setting up the rules before things like this happens. In our guild: You know you have three months of inactivity to tell you are going to be gone before we gkick. At any time you can pop on and tell a GM, or post on the forums, and we will be fine with it and no gkick will happen. There is no dependence on random cleanouts and telling people before that, or having to get yourself up and out. Though there may be some drama over this, I can't help but think anyone who causes drama over a rule that really has no impact on them should they want to be in the guild (as it would just take a whisper to rejoin, or to stay on the roster) wouldn't be someone we would want in the guild in the first place.We all have drama, in rl and out. The thing is to seek out mature people who can handle rules and who will not freak out on people for enforcing a reasonable rule. Or, in more realistically (as we all freak out from time to time), be mature enough to apologize after freaking out, and everyone else be mature enough to accept the apology....tall orders are tall. DX Ah, I am still hopeful that things will be handles well, and that no guild-breaking drama will get out of hand. Right now, things are looking good. But I am a worry-wart. But as for B&L, I do think she should stop worrying. That job is for Officers and GMs. Or as we call 'em in our guild, Sappers and Shareholders. Also, seek out rp events and push forward to expand your circle. Make new friends! Rp new exciting stories! Or maybe roll a alt somewhere to rp some fresh and new stories to take your mind of things for a bit. :)

Definitely looking forward to Cata and the guild to fully form. I've already got my application in and approved (yey!) for ! This guild is going to be super awesome! ~happy dance~
