While trial periods are a good idea, they are often better used with a filter system like an application and interview process. A constant stream of people invited to the guild and chucked out when not suitable can be bad for guild morale. If it happens too frequently, members just start ignoring the recruits until the probation period is ended, which defeats the whole purpose of the trial. Recruits don't feel welcome and you have no basis to judge behaviour cause they're not interacting with the guild.The application and/or interview allows you to weed out the obvious unsuitable candidates, leaving a few likely candidates a chance to integrate with the guild during their trial period.
