    Default Justinjspark's Guide to a Successful Guild

    GUIDE TO A SUCCESSFUL GUILD

    Table of Contents:

    1. Introduction

    2. My requirements to make a guild

    3. Guild Name

    4. The Guild Members

    5. The Advertisement







    INTRODUCTION:

    So, you have decided to take responsibility in raising/growing/making a guild. To make a guild, it takes 10,000 credits and requires no level requirement. Everyone has in mind a somewhat renown/successful guild. As I mentioned before, there are no requirements in making a guild, but to make a successful guild, there are a few requirements.




    MY REQUIREMENTS:


    While you are walking around in UCS Blackstar Base, you may see really low levels with their own guild. This will affect your guild a lot because think about it, would you rather join a guild with a high level or a low level owner. So try to stay in another famous guild until you've reached a high enough level. Another great factor is reputation, try to earn some reputation before making a guild. If people have heard good things about you and if you are known to be a good player, they will likely want to be in your guild. Be wealthy, people will enjoy being around rich people, don't ask me why.



    GUILD NAME:

    Now, the guild name, this will affect the decision in joining the guild. For example would you wanna join a guild named qedwbjwwebdwncdw, or guild names Venus Love. Guild names can be simple, complicated, something significant , or just plain funny. Some of the guild names I kinda like is Sparkling Pwnies, its original and funny. Another is, V for Vendetta.



    GUILD MEMBERS:

    Another thing players are looking for before joining a guild are the members in the guild. Try not to get too many "noobs".This means, the player is really new, doesnt have background info.on the game, and a player that doesn't understand how the game works. Most guilds are looking for high level players so they can try to get on the leader boards.Make sure you trust your members and try to get to know each other(this will improve your guilds teamwork and co-operation).



    ADVERTISEMENT:


    Now you got all the right stuff and now the advertisement begins. Introduce your guide and all about its info on the Guild section on the forums. Try to add all kinds of stuff. For eg. add what types of things your guild does and maybe also some info on the stuff the guild does.

    HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY GUIDE

    Any questions/errors/mistakes PM meh xD

    Oh and don't randomly add players u don't know

    That will cause a mess in the guild.
    One credit is what makes a million credits.

    So, it boils down to:
    1. Be famous
    2. Be rich
    3. No noobs
    4. Cool name

    Well, I wish I had know this before I put in hours of hard work helping to make my guild one of the best on SL. Would have saved me tons of time. Live and learn, I suppose.

    -.-...I wouldn't go that far and say it's the best...

    No offense to Justin, but this isn't a guide...in fact it's counter productive.
    I'm not even going to elaborate on this because I could go on for pages (no pages on the interwebz, I know).

    All I'll say is, why do people have to only join 'famous' guilds? What is 'fame' on the internet? Why should the little guy who's trying to grow his guild from the ground up be shot down because he's not famous? None of us are famous. We're recognized. I'm recognized for being outspoken on the forums and being fantastic at the game. I'm not famous. I'd be embarrassed if I was considered famous on a mobile phone game honestly. Instructing people to only join famous guilds is the wrong message to portray to people. How do you think those guilds got so big? They got big by people joining them. All it takes is one person with dedication to get a guild going. Don't shoot down the little guy so quickly. He could have some great ideas.

    Don't forget modest... But Kahlua is right. All you really need to be a successful guild leader is to be honest, friendly, and helpful to your guildies. Having a huge guild isn't important, what's important is that the people in it give you a reason to log on every day. Why have a guild where your members feel like just a face in the crowd? And if you have people joining because you have some status in game being rich or famous, then you can guarantee those people will leave for the next biggest thing when it comes along. Unfortunately the best way to learn being a GM is trial and error. If this is gonna be your first guild expect to make some mistakes. Don't let that stop you, learn from them and push forward.

    Some tips:

    * Don't spam guild invites, hell, don't even publicly recruit. You want people who ask you, and show they want to be with you, not just join because you're asking them.

    * Develop a set of rules for guildies to follow. Without structure, your guild will be shortlived. Put a stop to guild drama and arguements immediately.

    * Encourage selflessness. Donate to your own stash to encourage your members to help one another out.

    * Don't show off all your vanities and pinks to your members, or brag about what you have. This encourages jealousy, hatred, and lack of respect. A good GM, IMO, shares their good fortune with their members. (I.e. you have 8 pinks, 10 vanities? Share with your officers who have bad luck, karma goes a long way.)

    * If you want to take on the task of being GM, make sure you have the time and patience to fulfill the position. Being a GM is an endless job, and if you don't work on making your guild better, it will become stale.

    * Host contests, events, and other fun things to keep guildies interest after they've all capped, to disallow time for boredom & drama.

    * Be strong with the kick button. If you feel a guildie is hurting another member's play experience, warn once, boot next time. Set rules, make examples out of the bad eggs. Maintain that structure.

    * Finally, always make time for your guildies. Idc if you've got MF half dead while on a miners luck. if a guildie has a serious issue, DROP EVERYTHING! This will make them feel more valued.

    I could go on, but this aint my thread and I was just up all night capping toons, so I'm off to bed.

    Try not to get too many "noobs".This means, the player is really new, doesnt have background info.on the game, and a player that doesn't understand how the game works.
    That means Newb... Not n00b, a noob is someone who is un-willing to even learn the game, wants everything but is not willing to put any effort, pretty much expects to be carried throughout game/life. Totally different, please look up noob in the urban dictionary, then get back and argue this

    As far as this guide is concerned, i wasn't planning to comment on it bc i don't really agree with it either. I will say that the most important thing you need if you are making a guild is some kind of bond with the people you make it with. I knew the people I started IU with for weeks in and out of game before even considering this. i definitely got lucky with this group of characters i call my second family. Your guild will be strong if you have an unbreakable bond with it's members.

    I don't think you should "use" a guild for this purpose and then leave to find a "better" one. that kind of thing is looked down upon. what's to prevent the next guild you are looking to join from thinking you won't do the same thing to them? There are legitimate reasons for leaving a guild, but be weary joining and dropping guilds too often. Once you get the reputation as a "guildhopper" it is hard to get rid of, and all guilds want their members to stay.
