Pre-BETA Guild Recruitment

Guidelines, information, and helpful links
So you want to make a guild?
Please follow the guidelines listed in this thread!

While it is very early to begin thinking about guilds, we are always excited to see the community starting to get together! During the past few game launches this has usually included players starting to recruit for guilds before the start of CB. This is a great way to make sure you have a tight-knit group of players with common goals!

Step One
Be serious about it if you intend to create a guild!

You have a great guild name idea, or you just want to get some friends together. Great!
If you want to recruit other players from the Pre-Beta forums, we want to know you're going to take it seriously. Otherwise it just clutters the forums and serves no real purpose. This makes Valkie make sadface!

Step Two
Do your groundwork before you post!

Before you make a post in the Aeria forums, make sure you've done your groundwork! A guild is a place for people with similar goals, or outlooks, or gameplay styles to hang out together, play together, and basically be together. If you provide a way to do that before the game starts, you'll have more luck building a solid group of players.
    • Create your own guild forums
      Guild forums are a great way to keep everyone up to date! You have control over announcements, polls, and the forums in general. You can keep things organized and make sure that the guild is where you want it to be.
    • Choose your criteria
      What kind of players do you want to be a part of your guild?
      Are you setting any requirements?
      Casual players only? PvP heavy? Roleplay?
    • Choose a Name
      While this is not completely mandatory (that is to say, I won't lock a topic if it doesn't have a name), it's a lot easier to get recruits for a named guild!
    • Miscellaneous
      There are several other tools you can use to keep up with your guild. You can create a social network page (facebook, etc), build a group on xfire, or even set up your own teamspeak/ventrilo.



Step Three
Begin your recruitment campaign!

If you choose to recruit on the Aeria forums for your guild, please follow the guidelines listed below. Posts that do not follow the guidelines will be locked, and a link provided to this post to help the poster build a better post.. of post-iness.
Code:

[color=blue][size=18]Guild Name: Status[/size][/color]

Paragraph: Introduction, speech, guild goals, etc.

[b]Guildmaster:[/b] acct name
[b]Guild Officers:[/b] acct name, acct name
[b]Forums:[/b] [url=http://lmgtfy.com/?q=free+guild+forums]Forum Link[/url]
[b]Other:[/b] Facebook, Xfire, etc

[color=blue][size=18]Requirements:[/size][/color]
[list]
[*]List item 1
[*]List item 2
[*]List item 3
[/list]


You can of course change the colors and formatting to suit your own style, but please make sure you include all of the important information!

EXAMPLE

ValkSmash: Recruiting!

Looking to jump into battle and smash things? Guild ValkSmash might be for you! We are currently looking to recruit dedicated PvP members, mainly melee DPS. Before you apply to our guild, please check the requirements listed below. We have limited spots available for new members.

Guildmaster: Valkyrie
Guild Officers: Nazrudin, Sasrine
Forums: Super happy power funfun go!
Other: ValkSmash can be found on Facebook! (it's a trap)

Requirements:

  • Applicants must be awesome
  • We are primarly looking for melee DPS.
    Other characters will be considered, but the guild is called ValkSmash after all.
  • Must have moonwalked at some point
  • No "yo mama" jokes allowed! But Chuck Norris jokes fully appreciated.



Please note this is an example post only. ValkSmash is not a real guild.

Does it have to be exactly the same? Font color and everything? lol

I'm just asking since you gave us a color code.

No, coding is provided for the coding-challenged.
Believe me they do exist. Several of my fellow Aeria staff members (who shall remain unnamed) have a very shaky grasp of coding and blinded me with awfulness for a while. They now know better. *innocence*

It's optional coding provided to help those that want it to stand out, but aren't sure how to do so. If all the information is there and clearly organized, I'm a happy Valkie.

Oh good cause I would've been very uncomfortable being restricted.

Ah I know the feeling.... Sometimes guild recruitment threads are hard to look at... and the times when they put information in various spots where they don't belong. -foams at the mouth-

I thought I saw Pro-PETA Guild Recruitment as the title of the topic. I was getting ready to bash you in the face with Gutenberg's bible.
