Hello All.

As mentioned in my Guildlife Episode #9 on Jerry Snook's DDOCast, I am trying to get a pulse on the Guilds in DDO. What I would like to do is have everyone (in or out of a guild) answer the following questionnaire and send it back to me in any of the following ways;

1) E-Mail: You can E-mail me your responses at: guildlife@gmail.com
2) PM. You can PM me your responses via DDO's Forum Private Message Feature
3) Direct Responses to this Thread.

All Replies are confidential and I will keep any and all replies under the strictest of confidence. I hope in a couple of weeks I will have enough feedback to generate a report of Guilds in DDO and broken down by server.

So get your pencils out and participate! Lets all learn about the state of Guilds in DDO.

Thanks All
Buzz

Hey Hey All...

Thanks for all the awesome feedback so far. I will be compiling and looking at everything more closely after I get back from the gencon. So keep those responses coming !!!

Guildies! Don't think I just want to hear from Officers and Leaders, your opinions and thoughts count too!
Leaders of Small Guilds! You have just as much to say as the big boys! Let's hear from you!

Thanks All, and keep up the awesome work!
