Reform / Recreate "Contacts for guilds" thread.

Unread post by KOPOJIbPAKOB » Wed Dec 04, 2019 1:40 pm

Contacts for guilds.

This thread is soooo wildly, unapologetically out of date, and it stays this way for ages. Some guilds (Candlekeep, Performer's guild, Radiant Heart) have changed their leadership long time ago and the contacts in the thread are obsolette. Some guilds (like Zar Ut Khan, Bladestone foundation, Hellstorm crew, Whistling Wandress, Church of Mystra) are pretty much inactive, dead if you like. Some guilds (such as Blooded Lotus, Coven of Darkness, Cult of the Dragon, Temple of Lolth), weeell... what are even those guilds? When was the last time you heard anything about them if heard at all?

"Contacts for guilds" thread is not a museum for all the guilds that have ever been around in 10 years. It's meant to be a guideline for new players who would like to get involved into some guilds RP. Being a new player several years ago, I stepped into that trap myself and was then wondering why it's so hard to join a guild, I had no idea I'm trying to contact a guild that was dead at that time and is dead still, yet for whatever reason remaining at the contacts thread to this day. While important guilds such as Golden Wheel that just were founded later have never made their way to this thread.

What I suggest is just lock, erase, archive (underline what you like) the old thread and create a new one, with an up-to-date information that gets updated every season or on guild representatives' request.

The only objection to it I can imagine is "but it's a lot of work!". Well, I can do it myself if admins allow me.

I do know that when I got made leader of the Dariuses, I PMed to have my info added to that thread and it was done quickly. If it's outdated for active guilds, they just need to PM to fix it.

I do agree that inactive guilds should be marked as such.

If it is out of date, the guild should let us know (as most do).

I don't want to be the judge of who is inactive or not, unless we are contacted and asked to remove it. If the DMs want to send the mods a PM with who to remove, sure, but I am not going to be the one to judge activity or a lack thereof.

It isn't a matter of work, it is a matter of respect for the process. If Golden Wheel is still active (are they?) they can reply with their info and they will be added.

I feel like most guilds don't even bother with that thread, given how terribly it is out of date. You can't treat a thread where Coven of Darkness is in the list and Doron Amar is not seriously. Still, I'm working on reforming it and I'll post here an updated version so we could discuss it. It would be much better, yet not perfect, though gimme some time.

Here, an updated version of the thread. Obsolette contacts are updated, missing guilds added, inactive guilds moved under spoilers.

This version is much better and more helpful than what we had, yet there's still some work to do. I completely understand that I possibly moved a few more-or-less active guilds under spoilers, but it was done out of ignorance rather than my personal whims or anything, so representatives of those guilds are welcome to this thread to improve it!

In my opinion, it's way more productive if representatives of guilds moved under spoilers would protest against it and those guilds shall be added to the main roster with relevant contacts than hoping that a leader of a guild that's dead for years will suddenly pm admins, saying: "Could you please remove my inactive guild from the list?" (it will never ever happen, come on).

you dont know because the general consensus with the guild has been to not do public recruiting on the forums and such, but yea havent done anything lately, the last thing was the massive undead army campaign in the reaching woods... that pissed everyone off... but yea

CoD doing anything public, you wont know until after its over :naughty:
