Grimmlette - good points, especially about the MOTD and space in notes. But I have some tips for Officer Notes that might help you....We also keep join date and alt names in Officer notes. We came up with a notation that keeps the space maximized. For date, use YYMMDD ,, etc. You can usually get 3 alt names in before you run out of space. Then in ach alt, we put the Main's name. It's not perfect, but it has helped. One other tip on alts names - the Prat "chat" addon is fantastic for this, as is Guild Extender. I use Prat because it's simpler to use, but you can mark alts easily with both.One change that was overlooked that would be VERY helpful for GM's would be to separate Repair gold from Withdrawal gold. I don't mean the checkbox we currently have, but there should be TWO gold amounts. My guild provides unlimited repairs to anyone that is a Member and above. But I don't want to provide unlimited gold withdrawal to Officers. With the current system, I can't open up one without opening up the other.An "instanced" guild hall seems to be the thing we've all been asking for for years. Make some of these perks or guild currency spendable in the guild hall, and based on the guild level. It's nice to have a place to hang out, but if you put perks inside the guild hall (like Void Storage, mount vendor, guild bank tabs, etc), it would increase guild member interaction.

We do use MMDDYY. So Gimmlette joins 1-9-12. She brings her alt in so the Officer note read's Gimm's alt 1-9-12. Gimm's daughter joins. She's 8 and officers need to know this. "Gimm's daug, age 8, 1-9-12". Gimm's daughter brings an alt in. Quickly, the information officers need to know gets filled because there's not enough allowed space to type and that's even if we agree on what abbreviations to use. Come on Blizz. Give me 50 spaces. I'll look into those add-ons for my use. A number of people who still refuse to go to Altoholics Anonymous use "Identity". So, when Gimm is on an alt, their chat reads "Grimm (Gimmlette)", which is a tremendous help to new people and to me, to get to know who goes with whom.
