well for the record I am still a very active officer though my play hours are normally off hours compared to most

I know. Which is why it would be helpful if you took a moment or two to flag active members who are on during your hours as well.

As for inactive officers, I was looking at the officer list yesterday and there are a few names on there I don't think I've ever seen either in game or on the forums. If we were to do anything about this, 100% this is something we would want to discuss as officers.

Well I'm still around and my hours are very odd. The Winter event didn't really hook me so I've been off working on my pile. I'll make sure to log in to try to be seen by people the next few days so don't delete me, maybe?

You should log on for the Winter Event! I hadn't been interested in it, and then I spied the griffon plushie... Must... Have... Tixx is fun, haven't done all the other instances, but looking forward to trying the jumping puzzle when I get a chance.

Don't worry, no one's getting deleted.

Hi All,

Any chance I can get a guild invite? SignusX.3461

I'm playing on Sanctum of Rall with some friends but it'd be nice to be in the guild for chat and grouping in dungeons.

I know no one's getting deleted, but every time I'm on, everyone's marked as active member, and I'm just a lowly member! Can I get bumped up please? Promise, I'm active enough for it, I play almost every day these days!!

If you're on a different server, I don't think that'll be possible. I just tried to add you in the guild roster, and the game said it couldn't find you. Maybe I'm just clueless, though?

Send me a PM in game just so I know which is your account and I'll toggle your status. You're porbably just online where there arent any active officers.

It's very possible, we have several members on other servers, but only officers can send guild invites.

Hey folks -

Long-time lurker, 2nd-time commenting. Could I get a guild invite? Danopian.9168

I'm currently on Kaineng, but it's quite underpopulated and I'm looking to transfer over to where you're at. Thanks!

My status switched to active, thanks a bunch!!

That would explain the whole "not working" thing, then.

Hi,

I'm a big fan of the podcast and looking to join the community here. Can I get an invite?
OrionSix.2695

Thanks!

Invite sent.

Welcome aboard!

I've got two good friends that play in a sub guild with Badferret and I. Would it be ok to just get them an invite or are they required to register on these boards? It's a father/son combo where the father is 60 and the son is 40.

If it's ok to let them in, I will try to grab an officer tonight.

it's fine, just send their names when you get the chance.

Edit: as long as they make an effort to represent as GWJ members once in a while.

Our sub guild is lacking on active members as of late, so we'll be running with GWJ more and more

We frequently hit up GWJ to complete fractal groups, but I figure it's easier just to get all of us in GWJ.

Great. There was a lull in nov-dec but since the holidays we've actaully had more players. We usually get a guild dungeon run done most nights and we have a few people who are WvW regulars.

Actually some of them were talking of taking a few people in groups and offering up WvW intro tours. WvW can be pretty overwhelming to just jump in to.

We are WvW junkies. I am actually considering purchasing commander. Do we have any other commanders?

Hey all,

I just joined GWJ. I've been playing pretty casually, and I'm looking for a new guild. I'm hrusha.7932 on Gate of Madness (where my brother's tiny guild is) at the moment, but I'm considering moving servers (WvW is a thing I like). Could I get an invite? Thanks!

Edit: Now on Crystal Desert to try out the WvW there before options close off in a week.

invite sent!

none in the guild on NSP that i am aware of.

I have been on the fence about buying it. I dont think i would be active enough though

Nope.

OK, I thought I'd give everyone an update on the active player business.

It looks like we have well over 70 players who at one point or another were active and representing GWJ over the last few weeks. That's actually pretty great. By all indications we have more active members on a day to day basis now than we did at any point except for the few weeks after launch and that's a really good thing.

The sad part is that the big update this month had essentially no guild management features and those dont seem to be part of the discussion for future updates. I'll be keeping an eye out for more players that havent been not been toggled as active for the foreseeable future, but we might have some players who are active at times where there are no officers at all.

So.. if you see someone online and representing as a GWJ member that isnt yet labelled as an "active member" please sen me a message with that player's name so I can remedy the situation. I'd appreciate the help especially from players who are on at odd hours or in different time zones (relative to Eastern Time).

Will do, I'll keep an eye out for players who are on during my hours. I've a question, though, what about players who are part of the guild but not representing? I see some of those online, and have been wondering what the protocol is. It's happened a few times when I created new characters, I forgot to click "represent", but what about the chronic non representers?

There isnt really any protocol. Some of them are players who happen to be working on a personal guild, others are players who have just permanently transferred to WvW guilds (etc.). Just leave them be.

Eh, I set them as active members anyway. I'm not on enough myself to be able to tell if they're chronic non-representers or just busy with a different guild.

Oh goodness, I certainly wasn't suggesting giving them the boot!! Just whether or not I should jot down their name as well on the "active member" list. I'll keep that in mind, then.
