Project Phoenix III

A Phoenix Rises..

The last Phoenix was a bit brief and didn't really do much than slap a few alts off the map. It was more of a Mini-Phoenix, a Warm Pidgeon. So in the next couple of days we'll actually make some long overdue changes to the system in general, and clear away the long untouched alts and mains.

What is Phoenix?

For anyone new, or may not know, Phoenix is a sort of codename for a "a ruddy big clean up." For this one we'll change and add some ranks, alter permissions and the main change, two new ranks. The first being Exalted Rhymer, the highest rank a guild member can achieve. Second is Secretary, a rank for Officers alts. We'll also rename our newcomers "Lamb!" To the slaughter with you!

What will change exactly?

Alt characters

First thing's first, how many alts you can have in the guild will alter, and the list is as follows:

Lamb! = One alt.

Rhymer and Veteran Rhymer = Two alts.

Exalted Rhymer = Three alts.

= Three Secretary rank alts.


Bank Permissions

A key change we wanted to make was giving people more access to the bank, letting everyone view and deposit, including alts, the list of how much you can withdraw is:

Lamb! = Will need to ask an Officer for anything wanted.

Rhymer = Can remove 1 stack from tabs 1 - 3 and 2 stacks from tabs 4 and 5 a day.

Veteran Rhymer
= Can remove 2 stacks from tabs 1 - 3 and 4 stacks from tabs 4 and 5 a day.

Exalted Rhymer
= Can remove 4 stacks from tabs 1 - 3 and 8 stacks from tabs 4 and 5 a day. Exalted Rhymers can also repair using Bank funds for 10g a day.


Other key changes

Officers new Secretary rank will let them perform thier normal duties without having to switch characters. This is handy for example if somebody wants an item, and an Officer's alt is situated in a city.

The Exalted Rhymer rank is reserved for those within the guild that we trust fully. A member that contributes to the guild and others through the way of personal events, raids or being extremely helpful and generous. We look forward to seeing some Exalted Rhymers in the guild with time.

Along with the new perks mentioned above, you will be able to use the "Mass Invite" feature on the in-game calendar, post your opinions of new applicants on the Application section and change the Guild Message of the Day to announce anything the guild may find helpful. You'll also receive a highly sought after, limited edition Nysard Plushie with facial tentacle pullstrings.

Veteran Rhymer won't be changing. It's status is basically to show you've been with the guild for some time and is earned through being with us a year. No other changes will be made to Rhymer or Initiate, apart from the bank permissions.

Any alt in the guild that has a month of inactivity or more, and any main that has over 3 months inactivity - will be REMOVED, no exceptions. If you want them kept, log in before Phoenix takes place.


We hope these changes bring a little more life to the guild, aswell as ease of use for the bank and a better, cleaner rank system to clearly show reward and a way of thanks to the people that contribute to the guild often.
