View Full Version : Helpful suggestion to casual guild leaders on other servers trying to fund their guild hall....

<p>Today our guild (level 80 casual non-raiding) has started selling "Friends Memberships" to our Tier 3 Antonica guild hall.</p><p>When it was being talked about over half a year ago that guild halls would be going live this year, our guild made a massive effort to have a capital campaign to get a Tier 3 guild hall and to fill it with the most useful of amenities.</p><p>As of today, we have 21 of 30 amenities purchased from all that hard work this summer.</p><p>We decided to also share our new amenities to folks on our server that didn't want to leave their small family guilds but wanted the benefits of the guild hall amenities.</p><p>So we created this paid membership access program - 2 plat for the first month and 1 plat per month per character there after.  They get access to all of our amenities except the supply depot and the harvesting bots.</p><p>I sent out the first advertisement today to the 1-9 chanell and the 10-19 channel to a massive positive response.</p><p>I am sharing the idea with you all so maybe you can benefit from sharing your hard work on your servers with the folks that can't afford it themselves yet (for a small fee) <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Oh and btw....WORLD WIDE FIRST for a casual guild - IN YOUR FACE RAIDERS! <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

I won't feed into the "in your face, raiders" comment but I did want to offer my compliments on your idea and I am quite sure those who do take this very nice thing you and your Guild have done will appreciate just how very nice it is.

It was meant as a tongue in cheek joke and guild halls were just released, so no, no one has done THIS before.

Yes, because Guild Halls are the only guild-related benefits.....

It is a good idea.  We want a T3 but I don't think we could keep up with the 10P a week rent, nor do we have the 1000P (ridiculous) required to buy it.
