It’s really simple, and I don’t understand how so few people grasp this…but if you’re unhappy with someone in the guild, tell an officer.
Protip: if I don’t know that you’re unhappy, I can’t try to fix it!
Do you want to run 25 man content? Is your guild close but not doing it yet? What should you do-ask? Or q/quit with a couple of your friends, thus helping to gut their ability to ever get 25s off the ground? The correct answer, at least initially, is a: ask! If enough raiders express an interest and even state they’re unhappy, your officers might just try to step up their plans! In the very least, they can tell you, “Yeah, we were waiting on the GM to get his move out of the way-don’t you see it on our schedules? Soon, I promise! So go sign up!”
If I had known it had mattered that much to you that we do it OMG NOW, I would have led the fucking raids myself.
Also, try really hard to not randomly /gquit with no discernable reason. I mean, really.
As I’m walking my paladin away from the inbox, chewing over the loss of our best holy priest and two good DPS, I see in yellow text: “RogueRecruit has left the guild.”
Initially he didn’t respond to me, and when he did, he said something about not letting decisions be final and he was sick and…I don’t really remember, it was nonsense.
And I lost it. The rogue came with a druid, so I figured we’d lose both. Right on the heels of the rest, I couldn’t take it. I logged onto an alt and sat there and cried in front of the computer.
I don’t like losing anyone, especially not any of those that I brought into our crazy little fold. I want everyone to be happy. I want to fix everything. That’s my nature-and it’s one reason I’m an officer, besides from being able to gain recruits with my gregarious cuteness. But I can’t fix problems that I don’t know exist.
Actually, I knew the 25 man problem existed-and I was pushing for the content, but Steve’s desire to wait was reasonable. And it is, honestly, on our raiding schedules right this second for early March. If I’d known people were going to leave over it, though, I could have done somethin.
So. If you have a problem, let someone in charge know. FFS.
