Thanks for the comments.
Aphaeas, thanks for the comments. You are right in that we should wait until after xmas.
I do believe that waiting until we are few weeks into the new content and trying to do things is better.
But again, I think that we should at least make it known that it is possible to do other things than raid.
We've had a lot of new people in the last few weeks and months, but we do forget from time to time that they don't know that the guild is for all types! This isn't a criticism, we're all too busy enjoying ourselves we forget to let people know what is possible!
Zael, you are 100% correct in that initiative needs to be taken. Take a look at the tradeskills forum and the thread I posted. Later today I will post something about the Craft and Gather Fair I'm planning.
Hopefully others will be able to see that we don't have to rely on Officers for everything.
