Guild Newsletter #6

StDrakeX / Jun 02, 2015
Greetings Exiles! This is our 6th monthly installment of the Umbra Exiles Guild Newsletters. In this I will be talking about various issues as well as updating people on what's going on with the guild. I would like to say that we now have a revised First I would hope that you all have voted in the poll located on the bottom right section of this website. I need to gather where I should be focusing my attentions for the future of the guild but I think there is quite a lot of interest in the New Challenge League coming soon possibly in July.

The Guild as most of you should know that here at Umbra, we have started running 2 separate guilds. One for Standard Only players and One for the Challenge Leagues. This began with Torment & Bloodlines and was relatively successful with many of our players going for 8/8, which I envision is the goal for that guild. It will still be welcoming for those that aren't that hardcore about it and just want to play casually but from now on I would like that recruits to this guild be especially interested in the Challenges. So that is why starting this month and until the Leagues are announced/begin, I will be moving those that are planning to play the Challenge Leagues ONLY to the second guild which Kaoms is currently leading.

Like previously, at the end of every league we will be merging the two guilds with ONLY the active players that won't be taking a break. This is why it is important for you to log on to the site at least every 3 weeks to not be flagged for inactivity. This is the only tool that I have at my disposal that is effective enough to ensure we have an active player-base of members. This does not mean we will kick you if you did inform us that you will be absent in anyway, the Absences forum exist for this very purpose. The next purge is scheduled for the end of this month.

If there is anything you should take note from reading this newsletter it should be the next following issue/concern that will be discussed. PLEASE use your best judgement when dealing with others in this guild and lending out high value items. I know that many view this as a nice social environment being in the guild and most of us trust each other. However there will always be scumbags in this game. So if you're lending something to someone please get collateral or be 100% sure this person will return it and not just let them have it because they're a "guildie". In a perfect world we could all give each other Shav's, acuities, etc and let each other use it and on their word would return but we do not live in such a world. The temptation for these scumbags to do what they do is sometimes too great so please exercise caution with such requests.

Lastly I would like to say that we have changed the way we are going to operate in the future in regards to new Members and Officers. As some of you may notice, we had an officer demoting spree recently, and re-promotions afterwards. This is because we now have specific roles for each Officer and if you're interested in taking on more responsibility for the guild please get in contact with me (for Standard) and Kaoms (for Challenge Leagues). I would also like to say that we have never really had a strict policy on who we invite into the guild because we are all welcoming and inclusive. This has lead to many problems and issues so we now have a stricter invites policy.

This will be it from me for now and I hope to speak to you all again next month. Thank you for reading.
