To all those out there, To have a guild or run a guild keep true to its foundation. If its led by democracy then so be it. If led by hyarchy so be it. Each guild has its own religion so to speak. Don't let members dictate how it should be, or tell you what to do(n't). They can suggest , voice opinions but not coerice, or get ppl to force your hand with numbers(members).If you become a officer still uphold its roots, and not turn on each other. GL/RL/MT if founded has the full rights to make or break the rules as he sees fit. Only if its immoral then can it be refuted. Either way each GL/RL has there own ways and if its not your way tough.(bad omen to go against it, I have learned that lesson well.)Only in mergers does it comprmosie,adapt or change but not by force only by consent. If you get a clique of friends into guild don't let them think they can over rule you, they should make there own guild. Once in they cannot think to make it their own because they out number or have number or persuade others into their following.Esepcially if one so strongly doesnt see eye to eye with you. Also don't let a OT think they are a leader, and you have no choice in the matter.There is no "whether you like it or not" unless something is immoral imho.What that in action is saying I'm doing what I want whateva you like it or not, and then saying ppl will leave if it don't is worse.Take your clique make your own guild then call it your own, don't use guilds that are established.You jsut don't want to all the back end work , time investment, platinum in Gb, paid services, constant recruiting,constant training new folks, guild quests worked for to complete.If you want to call it your guild , then build it yourself.We share its success, we need ppl to make it succesfull, but you never overule it.People with power trips will move on and there discontent will then be onto with someonelse. It should never end up who follows whom.
So stay true to your corner stone, even if guild leader is changed as well by choice not by force. If someone is truly loved in the guild and knew its founders keep them only made a couple mistakes and that I'm truly sorry with Prophets. I didn't conform to Khalanthis's kingship(thats how it felt, and Original Prophets wasn't ruled that way), I build a BK without his choice(in that I did wrong, it was disrespectful) , but by peers and officers at the time.Guildees ahd fun. Then got mad at him with tells calling me names a jackass(very disrespectful), and I forged the polls for the bk(because I was angry at him). In short I got booted, and more or less should of loss rank only but with a meeting first. I was a Deathbringer rank for Prophets, in charge of guild city and BK(well Adeha we let have that part over which is fine). Issues of taken things our of GB, to put in a alt bank toon(Aoc small limited bank space then) shoudl of been done differently(talk it over if its ok to do so), but was in no way to steal them, ask and they would of been be given back(even said so to Khal). I had confrontations with Honor,(that I'm sorry) he was in charge how to run raids, not my place to tell him how to run it.I'm the one who helped kick the founders to get us rollign back to raiding(to promote those two then later GL was voted )and was officer before them. I learned all this and now run my own guild. Don't head bash with each other, it tears apart the guild.Live and learn, but I'm not your enemy, no who ever leaves.If they think so then so be it.
I love Prophets, still do, I miss it, I love the founders what it stood for. I then had no choice but to start my own guild. Don't be jeoulous of ppl favoring each other more then you. Don't get yourself into a popularity contest. Let everyoen adore everyone, Don't cause skisms cause you end up don't get along or like them. I think its best to not be cliques. Buidl the guild what you want but stay true with your founding vision. If its a family guild keep it that way.
It doesnt matter how ppl think of you, it matters how you think of everyone as a whole. You may favor others more then some, because perhaps there is conflicts or contentions to avoid a dispute. Don't let anger become hate amongst each other to turn on you. If your ideas feel as though they were raped and murdered, it wasn't the case its to not tie up time and a start debate. Yelling mad caused a debate.If built and founded the guild never is just about the one member then thats how it is.Its never about who follows who, and give ultimatums.Its bad omen to give a guild leader you have no choice in the matter(don't repeat my mistake with Khalanthis), and tell the GL you change or we leave. Take your clique in the first place build a guild the way you want it.Then its dishonrable because you don't want all the dirty work and hassle of the back end work and building it.You don't come in and uses what was founded to turn into yours, well if it does become yours still share the investment of others put into it.
In my guild you don't win office, your picked. Picked who you can trust, and be loyal till the end. Founded solid with you. Mergers with respect will honor you, but please keep true and faithful.
Life of a guild. Stay true,Loyal and honesty. There is no "I loved your guild" then you really never loved them. "I tried to be your friend" then you were never there friend. Love is forever. I still love Prophets, yah I hated what happened, It still hurts,but I still love Khalanthis like a brother no matter what.If I'm hated, I still love.I even still love/care for Santon, and William lol , but hate what they do/did lol. That goes for any others recently.Only hate what they do, not the person or else you have murder in your hearts.
