@AntigoneThe vent thing is something I had thought of. I agree and like the idea of selling in-game assets to support the service, but there's the problem of transparency. The guild would operate like a business where workers and shareholders have no clue what the owner is actually doing. Without any financial records that account for both virtual goods and where the real money is going, I just have to trust the word of the guild leader. Unless that person were a close friend of family member, I wouldn't be able to do that. It would be easy enough for them to funnel money to pay for vent and pocket the rest. I could conceive of an arrangement where an active leader from a large guild has his subscription paid for in this way as compensation (I wouldn't mind doing that for my current guild leader), but it's a different story if he does it in secret.
