Mar 14th 2012 12:34PM I haven't healed once. I stick to DPS (although, when I have more time/desire, I would attempt tank or heals).
Jun 3rd 2011 11:47AM We have a guildmate that goes AFK a lot (personal friend IRL, so he gets some slack from the guild which is mostly IRL friends). We were doing a 10-man Maly run and he went AFK yet again. Out mage set up a portal and we all jumped out after we started the fight. We all came back in after he died. When out guildmate finally came back, he was lying there dead and we were all /poking him and asking why he was dead. He was so confused... then he finally got it and we all had a good laugh.
We still threaten to do this again if he goes AFK too often.
Sep 15th 2010 12:35PM We're a casual family/friend guild and up until recently, there were only 3 kids in our guild - all belonging to 2 members and the kids are very well behaved and good players (all leveled their own toons to 80 and know how to play them).
We have a problem kid now that we are trying to deal with. He's 8 (I think), annoying (pops in vent and starts babbling to anyone who will listen to him) and since his dad gave him a geared toon to play with (one of dad's multiple alts), he has no clue what he's doing. We've pretty much decided that his dad wants us to virtually babysit him. No one is having it (he logs into vent, we all jump in the adults only channel). We're working on a solution to this.
I don't have or even really like kids, but I realize that I'm in the minority and they are going to be around. I would prefer to be in an adults only guild, but I realize that most of my friends that play are parents. As long as the kids are not acting obnoxious, are responsible and know how to play their characters, I don't have a problem with them being in the guild. It's little kids like the one above that piss me off and ruin the experience (we also like to use raid time to blow off steam and our minds are in the gutter for most of it - we just have to set up occasional adult only raids for this).
