Hi guildies, as we have begun to pick up raiding on a semi normal basis it is time to address some of the other pressing issues I have been setting aside in order to ensure we re-build a solid foundation running/hosting events. As our activity has increased, so has our visibility in the DDO community/forums. That being the case I will address a few issues that we must deal with to ensure we move forward without being hindered.
1st - Is our unity, though we all discuss things in guild chat we tend to forget to mention in chat before starting pick up groups (PUGs). I do it as well sometimes forget to mention in chat what I'm running before opening LFM. So to remedy this problem we will begin to state in guild chat (Chain or quest/lvl range/difficulty) you don't have to put anything else in guild chat if you don't want to but just reach out to the guild before setting a LFM.
2nd - is our coordination when running events such as raids, flagging groups, reaper parties, or just running new content. I want people to start setting raids that they want to run in calendar on website homepage (even if you don't want to lead it, that will allow others to see what you want to do that day.) If you don't know how to use calendar just ask and I will walk you through it.
3rd - Checking out Discord, those who want to use it anyway won't be required to use but will be exploring it moving forward.
As you can see both of these issues are related, guildies helping/running with other guildies and interacting through our website. Another thing I would like to see more guildies do is link our guild site at end or somewhere in character bio.
As we address these issues I will be addressing concerns dealing with officers moving forward. May ask some to step up as members and become officers to help out, also may remove officers who don't want the responsibilities. We are over half way through the year and we have done quite a bit to improve the guild so lets not stop here and keep it moving...step by step.
Cya in-game guildies.
