The ranks of a guild can be a bit confusing, at times. This is a post to try to clear things up a bit for you, but it shouldn't be taken as a rule book, but more of a guide. All Dynasty Warriors members are expected to follow our code of honour
. This applies from the newest member, to Cao Cao. Of course, we also expect you to use common sense
It is worth mentioning that we do not tolerate sexism, racism or homo/transphobia. We are all gamers, no matter who we are or where we come from. A friendly and respectful attitude goes a long way Applicant:
When you create an account on the forum, you do not have access to the whole forum, and can therefore not see or sign up for any events or such. That is why it is important you don't forget that there will be more interesting parts added as you rise through the ranks. To join DW, you have to be over 18 and be able to communicate in English. Yes, we do make rare exceptions, but then you really have to prove yourself mature. Community:
These are the people that are no longer active in the game, but still are a vital part of the Dynasty Warriors community
. New member:
This is the rank where you end up after someone decides to invite you. While here, we as a guild will look at what you say and do, and decide whether you would be a good addition to our ranks, or not. The one that invited you will be monitoring you a little bit more than others, and will also be the one promoting or removing you. To be promoted, you have to be social and active, as well as creating an account on the forum and write an application
. If you don't represent, we can't really get to know you, and it will be hard for us to decide whether you fit in or not.
New members have access to most parts of the forum, but not all. This means you shouldn't be surprised if a post suddenly disappears, it was most likely just moved to another section. As a new member, you will generally be removed from the guild if you are inactive for more than a month (without posting in the “Away
This is the largest group, and the one you'll most likely find yourself in. As a DW member, you are not required to show up for a certain event
, or even represent a certain amount. We do however want you to represent us and take part in what we do. What is the point of being in a guild if you are not going to actually participate? As a member of DW, we expect you to be helpful to other guildies, and to ask in the guild chat when you decide to do something you need or want more people for.
Members are expected to visit the forum regularly, and help out in assessing the recruits. You are also expected to know your way around the forum, to sign up for events and sharing and obtaining information.
As a member, you will not be removed from the guild until you've been inactive for more than three months without posting in the “Away
” topic. Senior member:
Senior members have been around for a while, and proven that they are not only social and active, but also loyal and helpful. A senior member may choose a Dynasty Warriors name, which is the reason you might have seen some of the members using different names on the forum and in-game.
In addition to doing what a regular member would, a senior member is also expected to step up and help out should the need arise. Things like guild missions, and leading groups on dungeon nights or in fractals, are common things a senior member would do.Enlisted:
The guild hall should be a place where all members feel at home. That will be the job for the team in this rank. The Enlisted is a group of people, working towards making the guild hall look the way the guild wants it to. The members of this rank have two responsibilities, one being the guild scribing, and the other being the decorating. You do not necessarily need the scribing profession, but it would be useful if you have it, for your decorating purposes. Note that it is an expensive and time consuming crafting discipline, before you pick it up.Commander:
The guild commander is a person that leads us into battle in WvW. You can volunteer for the role, and we will test your abilities to lead and communicate. If approved, you will get the rank that signifies this role, which also gives you access to our siege.
At the moment, we have two commanders, but we are always looking for more.Guild management:
The management have varying tasks. Some are more anonymous than others, but all do a part in keeping the guild running. Some in keeping the website running, others in organizing PvE and WvW events, taking care of recruits, and managing the administrative things in-game.
For more info on the people in the guild management, we have a series of posts - Meet the management:Cao Cao
