Due to the new category “Guilds and Clans” making things easier to find on the forums, and @Auth’s new “Franchisee” initiative, I thought I’d post about the best way to keep things organized and clean in that category so that those topics (if not pinned) are easiest to find.
For every clan/guild/tribe/posse/et al., there should be an official thread of guild information: where to find the clan, what server, active times (if applicable), location on the map, base coordinates, etc. Anything that is pertintent to the guild should be listed in this post, and should be mandatory upon approval of a franchisee. Any other posts beyond this one are considered optional and at the discretion of the leaders/officers of that franchisee.
When titling those threads, the start of the thread should be the Tag/Ticker/etc. followed by what the organization is called in game (clan/guild/tribe). Those should be encased in brackets.
ex. [STCO Guild]
Next, an apparent description of what the thread encompasses. Is it the official thread with guild news and info? Is it information on crafting, lore, and role-playing? Make sure that information is accurate and up to date. This should likely be handled by either the leader or one of the guild officers.
ex. Official Guild Info and Guide
I’m hoping that with this strategy, the threads will be uniform, easy to find, and not convoluted in a way that people are having a free-for-all in the naming conventions.
I’ve went ahead and re-edited those titles that I’ve seen so far that fell out of the criteria, but please take a look and ensure yours is also edited properly, if you own the franchisee.
This is obviously a first take, and is welcome to be edited should someone have a better naming convention or set of rules to follow.
