- Sorry to bump an old thread, but are we doing any recruiting there? Rey, would you like me to post a thread or are we full for launch?
(sometimes I'm helpful!)
I wonder what the sometimes is for..
Generally, we'd like to avoid recruiting on Facebook in the presumption that the majority of the community there is inclined to drama and/or is the type that likes to use a flood of smileys with everything they write (i.e. rather young audience). Often the two are intertwined. As history shows, those people are generally not the type who have a long and successful stay in here as their attitude collides with that of the more...mature (or 'grumpy' if you will
) personalities that most members here maintain.
We also have a rather negative past history with using Facebook as it only served to segregate the guild instead of further uniting it, and this eventually completely backfired and blew up in our face. While I still regret the events that transpired, I cannot change the past so instead I will prevent it from happening again in the future.
So basically we'd like to avoid full-blown recruitment on that place (via e.g. an entire thread or other form of announcement). However, if you know any people on Facebook or see people of who you think they'd be a good fit for the guild you can always drop them a line or link to the forum
They can always register and apply, and we welcome all who are willing to take the effort to do so.
Thanks for the offer
People like you who think about how they can help the guild and are interested in doing so warm my otherwise ice-cold officer heart.
