I have been thinking very long and very very hard about this issue. And I have been trying to figure out a way to bring Guilds back to the boards but in a way that makes us more of a community. And I have come up with a way. Since we are a Fantasy Forum now. And not so much all about LoTR but many other things as well I figure Guilds might be a good place/thing to have. People like feeling a sense of belonging to something at a site/group, social event, or whatever else you can think of. It makes people more active as far as a community goes for them to be able to go somewhere and post somewhere with a group of people rather than a lot of people. If that makes any sense whatsoever. So here we go. Here is some information for you to absorb about Guilds and figure out if it is something you want to do. House Information: Rules: - House are not for Spamming. We have a spam forum for those reasons. - Anyone is allowed to post in a House regardless if they are a supporting member or not. - If a House become inactive for more than 1 week it will be removed until the House Leader gets in touch with me(Boomerang). - I(Boomerang) will be in charge of every House. As such if something is objectionable I will take care of it by any means necessary. - House must abide by forum rules. They are not I repeat NOT exempt from any rules. How to get a House: - You must have over 150 posts. Why this high number? We only want active members to have Houses not inactive members. - Your 150 posts must be of half way decent quality and they will be checked in a random way. - Houses can be about anything you wish to have them be about. - If you feel you have what it takes to run your own House PM me and let me know what you want your House name to be as well as a reason why you want your guild and what you think it can bring to TFF. All of these things must be in the PM. If they are not it will be deleted and you will not be notified about it. - Please give me at least 48 hours to get back to you about your House. It must be approved by Khamul, Asgath and myself before being added to the boards. I am taking a big leap of faith here in bringing them back to the boards as we were one of the first forums to have them way back when we were LoTR Online. So I am hoping people understand now why I am bringing them back and that we want these to succeed this time. Guilds are also going to be called Houses this time around. No more name Guilds. Houses is it. Thanks and welcome them back!
