I'll start out first with saying this first wave of officer demotions were conducted with one thing in mind, clear the newer and/or less active officers. (active in chat and/or log-ins) Due to previous problems and drama it has become painfully evident that some are treating officer status as a glorified member. Officers should NOT be trolling, or instigating in others quarrels as an officer you should be attempting to diffuse the situation. Officers should NOT be piking, unless there's some arrangement with a party leader don't join if you can't or don't want to play, the officer should be the one agreeing to let a member pike if anything. Officers Need to be active in chat, if only to greet and welcome, all officers who witness a greeting should reply accordingly even if your in quest you can reply once you are clear of enemies. I understand some are not the most sociable but answering a question here or there or greetings are necessary to help bring back our positive lively atmosphere that has nearly disappeared within the last 2 months.

As officers we are responsible for the atmosphere within our guild. We are responsible for how our guild is perceived by outsiders. Its OUR responsibility. I'm at fault for all of it. In the past me and a handful of officers would take care of everything, enabling majority of the officers to basically just play the game. If all you want to do is log and play with no worries, feel free to do so, as a member. From now on as officers watch chat, I will be watching officers. All officers will help out in one way or another. I mentioned in our guilds message of the day some of those jobs I will relist them here.

  • Chat watcher - ALREADY FILLED NO MORE NEEDED FOR THIS ROLE - basically just making sure rules are followed. Send me a mail letting me know what what happened. However if there is a problem that requires immediate attention and you can address it respectfully do so by way of using tells or party chat never call people out or correct anyone through guild chat. (Need to set up a party chat that allows incoming guild chat messages. right click party tab accept incoming guild chat. You will still have to go to guild chat tab to type into guild but you can see whats going on.)

  • Cargo Buffer - 1-3 people to help re-up cargo buffs. (In order to do this find the second mate near the ramp in the cargo hold and buy which ever buff you want to add. Click hook point next to ladder in cargo hold to show square you need to stand on in order to apply said buff. The squares are color coded, so periodically click the hook point to check what needs to be re-applied. Green means its good, orange means it should be re-applied, red means it NEEDS to be re-applied immediately. When re-applying make sure you pay attention not to switch around buffs if there are questions please ask.)
  • Raid Runner - Need at least 3-4 so that they don't get burned out.

  • General Helper - 1-2 people should be enough. Need some one to keep Free Sample of the Week (FSotW) as well as current event in Message of the Day (MotD)

  • Media Helper - 1-4 needed but at least 1 person. Want to set up a twitch or youtube channel, and possibly other social media avenues to extend our reach to prominent and active DDO players. Also need help keep website up to date as well as encouraging interaction with the site.

  • Recruiter - could use 1 more. Will be holding tryouts to enter our guild in MABAR for established toons from now on, only other recruiting will be looking for noob toons (adventurer/hero) in February and late spring. I only want people who choose to be recruiter to recruit moving forward. Real friends and family are always welcome, and anyone can invite alts long as some one asks in guild chat and not from a tell, to ensure only guildies are requesting invite. Other than those reasons absolutely No more recruiting.

  • Static party leader - could use 1-2 more to join in this, as I will be starting out with this once a week with alts strait out of creation one party as this is a new idea. if any want to join and has a character slot open to dedicate specifically to a guild group. (Basically going to be leveling with the same group of guildies once a week.)

If the officers who were demoted and would like officer status back knowing what it entails respond to this thread if your officer toon name is different please state that in the response as well as the role of your choice. For current officers who want to keep officer status knowing what that entails reply to this post if your toons name is different from your name on the guild site state that as well as the role you would like to play. Any who don't respond will demoted by next month, those that are wanting to regain their officer status, I will be re-instating on the 25th of October 2017. Any who are inactive that have been demoted and wish to reinstate will do so once you return to game and reply to this post.

***All officers need to set guild chat tab to accept incoming officer chat (right click on guild tab)

***We probably wont fill all these, the rest we will have to get trough tryouts/recruiting so if you cant dedicate the time for the static parties or raid runner so don't feel pressured, can never have too many eyes on chat.

***Officers need to log in the website twice a month, if you do nothing else update your toon specs in roster, use shout out box, or something. The reason being it gives me a way to send mass messages to the officers which is something ddo doesnt have.

Nofaec, if you need for me another role, I'm good with it. Right now I've been watching chat when I'm on and rebuffing or adding to when I see them low. Thanks! Ychangecain.
Also if your too officer heavy and need me to chopped, I understand. Go LWoG

Hi Nofaec,

Being based in Australia, I am usually on when most members are asleep in the USA. That's ok.

I have always helped others in DDO, guild and non-guild. Being a positive influence in the game ensures a continued happy experience for all players and ensures the game stays healthy and online.

Guild wise, I have and will continue to keep an eye on ship buffs. Good to know about the traffic light status of buffs. Didn't know this, always learning new stuff. I will try and be more vigilant knowing this.

I have now added guild and officer chat to party chat (another thing I didn't know). Always found it difficult to see what was happening in guild chat during quests.

I usually advertise my LFM's in guild chat. I end up soloing a lot due to time zone issues.

I'm not in a position to be a raid runner at the moment as I'm trying to get completionist and am not really doing many raids. Will participate if on and i'm flagged and at level, but these are usually rare times, last time was ADQ & DQ about a two months or so ago.

I will keep an eye on FSOW and update if required.

I'm not sufficiently tech savvy enough to help with a website. I'm sure I would do more damage than good.

Due to timezone and personal situation, I can't commit to party leading with new toon at this stage.

I have done the odd recruiting in the past, adhering to the current recruiting conditions.

*** by the way, thanks for helping in Friends in Low Places the other day ***

Hey guys. Fiorenza/Warkitten/(all the)Scarletts/(all the)Kyttns/Yuukiiko here. (Yeah I have a bunch of characters.)

I've been helping with hosting the raids. I'll continue to do that. Tonight was a bad night for me with family issues. It happens to all of us I know. I'll also be happy to help out with our recruiting during Mabar. I think it's a great idea (good job - I think it was Erroid - whoever came up with that idea). I think it would be a good idea to have us on our officer characters if we have multiples. I'll try to stay on Fio for that time. I usually run whatever the highest level toon is for raids - at the moment that is Warkitten.

Basically, tell me where you need me and I'll be there. The only thing I probably wouldn't be good for is the website (I'm also trying to finish my Doctorate so you all know. I'm kind of busy.)

I will also buy stuff for the ship, now that I know how to do it. I didn't before.

Just let me know what we need done and if it's in my power, I will make it happen. I'm not the type to sit by usually. I feel bad that I've done that in the past. But my personal life is a little crazy.

Nofaec, if I might suggest, Tallanos was a good officer. He should definitely be made one again. It disappeared after the night he dropped from the guild. But he really should be made an officer again.

Just my 2 cents.
Maria (that's my real name. Use it if you want.)

Hey Nofaec, Vorpalface here. I'll do whatever officer or not. I'm well liked and known throughout the server and actively participate in chat and liven up the conversation.
I'm also Bauldrdash.

Hiya Nofaec !!

Jakandar/Klyss/Garmud/Zyndaria here :)

(Jakandar is the one with Officer ranking)

I think I would prefer to as before have social roles like chatting in channel, helping out with questions etc. Greetings and trying to make people welcome and happy is my thing.

Hey Chief,

I have done a little bit of this and a little bit of that, Mostly just filling in the gaps when and where I can according to my abilities
I have watched the chat, recruited, helped with the cargo buffs and been active with some of the raids.
I am on frequently (though less recently as rw business has been hectic) and am willing to continue with the status quo if that works for everyone.
Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Hi Nofaec,

I'm currently rather inactive as you may have noticed :)
So fine if I'm dropped as Officer.

Once I'm more active again I'll probably be active at all kinds of times (EU CET), so I can help policing the chat.
I can also restore buffs, but I may forget, so best not count on me ...

Hey Nofaec,
I would like to apply to become an officer as I believe I got a mention off someone and I have decided I'd love to run up for the roll. I am a very active player and I am happy to lead any group/raid. I am also happy to recruit others to our guild when we have recruiting periods.
If I do make it could I have the status on Uppsy
Thanks Mentusk/Uppsy :)

Just pointing out that we currently have 39 officers according to the in game guild roster... and only a handful have responded so far.

This is not a bad thing imo. In fact, I much prefer a small group of dedicated and responsible officers to the hoard we used to have (for some history - several years ago - we used to have well over 100 officers and it was a mess. Most of them didn't even know they were officers either, and others still were quick to abuse their power as well). So I feel this is a step in the right direction, and I'm happy to see those who have responded so far.

Quality over quantity, I say. :)

this is Grrr-1, nymph-1, Vampeel and Punkforge

Hollar me the spot of raids i guess

i'll do this 2 fold, i will less concentrate on setting up raids as my EU times done suite everyone, but any of the other raid runners when your running a raid and see me online tell me, i'm happy to join always and if you really wanted i am happy to take charge of most raids.. i have a headset if voice instructions are needed

along with that if theres a raid you really want to run, set it up, invite me and make me lead it :P

and as far as amenities go, if i'm ever in the cargo hold and anything has run out more than happy to top up.. think as officers this should be all out duties.. but am happy to always top up when i see something empty
