Still not got my original account back, so:

Idea 1: Change it so it only happens when the majority of a guild is inactive for x amount of time, this has the advantage of being a benefit to smaller guilds and active larger guilds, but actually effects those who are inactive. though it may hit larger guilds more than smaller ones.
Idea 2: Allow Officers to spend Guild renown to buy guild benefits, as an addition to the current Hookpoint mechanics:
A) Perhaps letting Guild renown be used to buy Gold Seal Crew/Items
B) Additional items unlocked at levels where there's currently no rewards which give different options for Crew/Small/Large hookpoints.
C) Unlock Additional Ship Hookpoints for a set amount of time
D) Buy Cosmetic changes to Ships, Paint colours, Trophies (Arraetrikos Head mounted on a wall as an option for an Officer who has completed the shroud), Elemental Ring colours etc.
E) Buy Permanent upgrades to ships, additional hookpoints, New Ships etc.
Could use a combination of Idea 1 & 2, or just get rid of Decay and use Idea 2, either way would be of benefit and still cause Renown to decline over time if the guild was not working to keep it active.
Pet Peeve: New Forums are just Horrible, they look kinda okayish, but the mechanics underlying them are frustrating: still not able to log into my original account, getting logged out while trying to post this reply, logging in to find I was back at the top of the forum not even in this thread anymore, the whole security mess with the same password...
