Shade2000 said:All that said, let's just remember that guilt features are not what make a guild great. The quality and enjoyment of clan life is increased by having interesting discussions about pokemon news, the competitive metagame etc. While the whole of Serebii, as a forum, is made for that, what makes a guild different to an ordinary thread is the members who are loyal and know each other well. The guild should be a friendly place to discuss this kind of stuff in peace. This is something this guild has been seriously lacking, the member's abilities to discuss pokemon isn't that it used to be
(or what it ever was in THT)so I think that's what we need to work on. No amount of guild features that involve individual participation can bring the guild together, we need to do things together or discuss, then hopefully the thread will become a bit more active.
imo the guild is too structured with too many arbitrary rules and restrictions and not enough battling/chatting etc. but maybe that's just me. I hope the thread becomes more active anyhow
Please pay attention to this ^ I used to really enjoy posting on THT and being part of the community - when it closed and we made RoF instead, things kinda started going...downhill. It was still the same group of people, but the atmosphere felt a bit more formal. Now, I just feel that any comment on news, comp. stuff, etc is just out of place. There's no room for discussion with all of these features flying around, and the atmosphere just isn't friendly.
EDIT: hey Lynx. I see your point but what's good about discussion is that it leads from one thing to another. A half-hearted discussion about Sun and Moon can lead to a really interesting one if you just give it a chance. Rings of fire are formed from one flame.
