Well, I've decided to create a few non-ASoIaF-related ranks as well, primarily the Guild Leader's Second (there might be others, depending on need). There are times when I can't be here, or when I'm unable to test people. The Second's job is to coordinate events (testings, etc. - despite my best efforts, people seem to end up testing with me instead of with someone else. Henceforth, if I'm unable to sign on, the Second will be there.) and run the Guild when the Guild Leader can't do it due to other considerations. Also, during Guild Meetings (if that ever starts running, that is) and I'm unable to attend, the Guild Second will run the meeting. Although the Second will have no official authority (the way I don't), please cooperate with him/her to make our lives (ok, specifically MINE ) easier. Please do not PM, e-mail, or IM me about being Guild Second. Although I'm tempted to say that it'll automatically diminish your chances, it won't. Nonetheless, I will consider such incidents when I'm making the final choice. Being chosen as Second has absolutely nothing to do with whether I like you personally or not, but rather if you can be a good adminstrator of tests, etc. and do so fairly without giving points just because you like them. Also, you need to be online a LOT. I make an effort to be available fairly often so people can test, particularly the week after their previous one. Try to have multiple messenger services so you can test people, and if someone arranges a specific time with you, be sure to be there! If emergencies come up (this does include angry parents, for those of you who are still minors - I understand perfectly ) either e-mail or PM the person as soon as possible. Another thing - the Second really needs to know their stuff for ASoIaF during testings. I do give hints occasionally, and you need to know enough so as to give them small hints and not huge ones. Also, if an answer is close enough to the correct one, I give them the point - and if they add in extra stuff that's relevant to the subject and is quite specific, I give them extra credit (partial points). The Second needs to know their stuff so as when to know to give the point. I'll also do my best to PM or e-mail the Second concerning dates I won't be available so he/she have a warning.
