Happy Pride Day! That should be pretty awesome.One thing I've long wanted is to ask guild recruitment advertisers to do is to specify exactly what they mean by 'mature'. Things that mature could mean:1) We're all college students, don't want any high school kids because guild chat mostly consists of talk about sex, drugs and alcohol abuse.2) We just kicked out a bunch of drama queens and we don't want whiners or high-strung people.3) We're mostly retired and any group activity will have built-in time for frequent bio breaks.4) We're mostly young parents and any group activity will have people going AFK to change diapers, or rescue the kid from a nightmare.I don't think that type 1 is very mature, but that's personal opinion. In any case, it'd be nice if adverts could move away from such a generic word and come up with a better way to convey their group mentality.

I always refer to my guild as mature(-ish) in my guild adverts. Not sure if that's more or less descriptive.

I hate to say it, but from my brief time in Taint, when they say it's a "mature" guild, they mean #1 (...guild chat mostly consists of talk about sex, drugs and alcohol abuse). Which is very different from how I define mature.

@M - I was in Taint for nearly a year. Drugs? NOT. A. SINGLE. TIME. EVER. Alcohol abuse? NEVER. Alcohol? People mentioned wine, beer, etc. but this is a game with the beer of the month club, so there you go. So that leaves the sex part. Occasionally there was some innuendo, once in a great while there was some talk of a more "mature" subject matter, but it was rare and it never lasted beyond the brief discussion. The way you're bringing it up, people might come away thinking it was all a gay Goldshire party or something.And for those who think it is about this, sorry, but if you're looking for ERP, you're looking at the wrong collection of guilds.
