Does anyone know if its possible to be a part of multiple guilds? The wiki seems to imply that you can, but you only represent 1 guild at a give time. Eg, I join 5 guilds, I choose to represent 1 specific guild at any given time (so that guild gets whatever exp, guild points or what have you).
Other variables - vlad is playing with a group of like 6 friends and they have formed a guild. We could attempt to be absorbed into that, but I'm not sure if we'd be welcome to do that (or if we'd even care to for that matter).
If we stick with our own guild, everyone of our little crew here will be made into "officers." You'll be able to recruit, etc. Recruit if you like and don't do any of that spam invite nonsense (guild blahblahblah is recruiting). I'd prefer to just play with pals, but am cool with welcoming new folks in. You really don't need to do anything if you are an officer. From talking with folks, it seems like people like having some sort of elevated title. I intend to make this ridiculous by creating ranks like Lord Hussypants, etc, at some point
Other things - I think I'd end up setting up 1 or 2 nights a week where we have "guild nights." This would be time where we'd all try to get together to do whatever. We did this for our LoL nights and typically had pretty good turn outs. On the LoL note, I'm sure before too long I'm going to start jonesing for LoL in the near future and start splitting up my time a little more between the 2 games.
Anyway, my current vote would be to keep the ridiculous guild name (peterdumptruckians) - eg my stance is that I'd like to keep that name. We have one opposed to the silly name and one that likes it but really doesn't care all that much. All we need at this point is to get karl and dax's opinion. If the majority is cool with the dumb guild name, then we'll stick with that. If the majority opposes, we'll start brain storming new names and create a brand new guild and get up and running using that. HOPEFULLY we can sort this out over the next couple of days. And remember, you can apparently be in multiple guilds. I'll personally be spending my majority of my time in gw2 with either the peterdumptruckians or a new guild that we will create if the peterdumptruckian name gets downvoted.
