Couldn't a probation period also work. Use it as a period of screening for new members. That way everyone can still get invited but now you can have an excuse to ask people to leave. And with the whole ballooning guild scenario and worry about drama the excuse to do this is viable. A lot of guilds I've been in and heard about from friends do this and it works. Yes it's a little elitist but keeping certain people out and letting certain people in is in fact elitist. Have you never heard of a country club?

A trial membership seems worse than flat-out turning people away, since it would require people to give up their prior guild reputation (that they can't get back) and maybe upset relations with their remaining guild mates. If you already have a good idea in advance if that person will fit in from playing with them frequently, it seems better to just tell them "no" up front then pretend they have a chance and cost them their current guild status.

I'd never join a club that would allow a person like me to become a member./groucho
