As leader of a guild that has been going strong for 4 years I am starting to really struggle for space in the guild. Recently we had the message 'you cannot recruit xxxxxx into your guild because your guild is full'.

We are one of the leading guilds on our server and have been for several years, I get around 5 applications to join per day, sometimes as many as 10. We prefer to build our members slowly, getting to know our newer members but even doing this we still have no space left!

I have removed almost all of the older people who haven't logged on for a while, trying where I can to leave them one character in the guild so when they do come back they still have a home. It is the nature of many of our members who travel for work, are in the military, or have young families that at times they are not on for months, but always come back.

I have also removed all characters under lvl 8 that hadn't logged in for months either, and all bank toons have been removed.

However this still leaves us with a chronic lack of space for new toons or new members. Many many of us have played for 3-4 years and have 10, 15 sometimes 25 toons!!!

Please please increase our capacity, so we can continue to build our guild further and keep the people who want to join happy!!

The cap is set at 1000 members. We have been at our max for about 10 months and spoke with turbine about it. They said the code could not be changed. We instituted inactivity rules and do not allow mules to be guilded. We even put a lot of thought into starting an off shoot guild fir recruiting. But could not find a good way to see the members currently on line from each guild. We did find a way to communicate between guilds, but it requires each member to build a custom chat setup.

Interesting to know, the compendium was showing us with just under 900 when I first got this message, but not sure how often that is updated. Another guild is a consideration but I think it would be a logisitcal nightmare.

I'm not sure why they couldn't change the code, surely it can't be that hard to let us have a few members!

It's 1000.

Myddo is bugged and often reports people who are no longer members. Those guilds who invite everyone right off the dock and have huge churn as smart people leave frequently have a misreported membership count.

I am having a good laugh now. I am an officer with Whippy in S.T.F.U. on Ghallanda and was kicked due to inactivity from MAC on Khyber about a year ago (with time constriants decided to play just on my home server). Both great guilds, both at capacity.

Go S.T.F.U. and MAC! :D

You, my friend, are such a trend-setter.
