I second the mucky duck idea -it makes sense -it also provides secure knowledge to the guild that a member is only out mercing and not left or booted out -as seeing so and so has left in guild news can be demoralising for some team members.

Totally agree!
There must be a way, and this is not difficult programming, to allow each player to have a Home Guild, and a Visiting Guild. When you are out mercing, you just visit a guild (instead of leaving your old guild and joining a new), which then becomes the 'active' guild, with benefits and stuff. And as written earlier - when the visit/merc is over, you just go home and everything becomes as wheb you left. A bonus benefit would also be that you dont have to 'search' for your home guild everytime...

It's like mobile telephony - you visit a foreign network while out traveling, but always keeping the home network information to be used when you come home.

How it could work...
In the options menu, have an option for "retain rank". When this option is on, the next time the character leaves a guild with a rank of member, veteran, or officer (GMs can't leave), this rank will be remembered. The character may enter other guilds, but cannot be promoted past recruit in any other guild. So long as the home guild has space (less than 60 chars), the character can return with remembered rank, even if the might requirement has been raised or auto-accept is off. This benefit is not conferred on recruits (otherwise the GM could not control who gets the privilege of being able to return automatically).

This also allows officers to boot people from the guild while making it easy for the char to return. (To discharge a member, demote to recruit, then boot.)

I agree completely a way to auto reinstate ranks would make the BoH life of a GM so much easier. I came to forums specifically to suggest this, I'm not a bit surprised to see its been suggested and seconded several times. It seems to me theres several ways this could be accomplished with little difficulty.

Even the reinstating rank in options is a simpler and effective idea. This would save a lot of time for GM's -as it's quite tedious having to re-rank members/veterans/officers back. This would encourage guild loyalty and also make members feel secure in the guild should they be kicked out of a guild temporarily for pending raids to be saved (if/when necessary).

Maybe have a temporarily kick from guild option when you click the remove player from guild section...they would be reinstated back automatically when the guild has completed the raid and there's space for them to return?

Related to the rank promotion thing, it is INCREDIBLY tedious and annoying to have to find a name and promote someone from recruit to member to veteran to officer any time they leave and come back. That is 3 different taps after 3 refreshes of the member list, after scrolling through pages of members 3 times to see where they are hiding this time in the unorganized member list.

Please give us the option to promote someone 3 times all at once without refreshing the member list every time. Sometimes we have lots of people to promote all at once (after half the guild leaves to bail out another guild's raid) and this takes FOREVER to do because the list keeps refreshing and taking us back to the first page of the list. Also, after promoting one player, don't refresh the list again until leaving the page or hitting the Previous or Next buttons. This will allow us to promote multiple players all in one screen without the same problems mentioned above.

And lastly, when we need to boot players, don't do a refresh of the member list after every boot either. Let us clear out multiple players quickly without all the hassle of constant refreshes. Just drop them off the list and be done with it.

Thanks.

You've taken the words right out of my mind -I certainly second this.

Tip: Prevent Roster Refresh or Easier Promoting/ Booting

Tip: sort members by Might (instead of Standard or Online Time) to prevent Roster Refresh when promoting

Tried booting two of my characters, the list does refresh, but only the list below the booted character.

Additional Terms: Promote, Boot, Booting
