My guild has a fabulous officer whose job it is to manage the guild bank, and we're able to provide flasks for a lot of guild members (especially now with cauldrons), along with having food (yay fish feasts), plus enchants & gems available for raiders. We work as a team to stock the bank with herbs and fish and everything else because we know we'll get something out of it. The higher rank you are in the guild, the more you can withdraw from the guild bank (so that there is a reward for loyalty and attendance). We can't afford to provide repairs right now, but at times where flask prices are lower, we hope to enable that feature, too. We've also been working with our crafters to get BOE epics made for our raiding team as much as possible (especially for tanks & healers).If you want everyone to be self-sufficient and never use bank funds, then you should be /randoming the epics & greens & shards that drop in raids for the guild members to sell themselves. The very act of stockpiling gold you don't use in a guild bank is pointless right now (the overly expensive price of flasks + needing to work together to make cauldrons = the "rainy day" IS TODAY).So, either find ways of sharing the wealth (such that money in = money out every week), or stop hoarding everything for the guild bank, because hoarding without sharing makes your guild look sketchy. You don't have to spend more on the guild than is donated or earned thru raiding - you can make only some of the bank tabs available and put limited supplies based on what your guild can afford, and put a cut-off point where you say that funds will stop being spend when you reach X amount of gold (for our guild, we stop providing flasks when the guild bank's funds drop dangerously low and ask for more donations before we open the supplies back up again). However, having a fully functioning bank where people can get what they need (but are expected to donate what they can provide) makes our whole guild happy and works well as a recruitment tool.
