The Grim is an active guild, made up of members with an active play style. While life cannot and should not be put on hold for World of Warcraft, The Grim take a serious stance on inactive and non-participating members.
All members have a sixty (60) day inactivity limit before they are removed. Certain conditions exist that will extend their removal, as stated below:
- If a member is aware they will be unable to log into World of Warcraft for more than two months’ time, they must contact the Guild Master or an Irredeemable asking for a leave of absence (LOA). The member can either send a private message (PM) on the forums or make a post in The Gibbering Madness. Any other means is not an assurance a LOA will be honored.
- A Leave of Absence will last three (3) months. If the member does not contact the Guild Master or an Irredeemable within that three month period, the member will be removed from the guild.
- An extension to a Leave of Absence will be granted for extra-ordinary circumstances. These include, but are not limited to; military deployments, international business travel, inability to pay WoW subscription, complex computer or internet problems, family emergencies. These will all be looked at on a case-by-case basis, with the final decision being made by the Guild Master. It is up to the member to inform the Leadership Team if an extra-ordinary circumstance happens, as none of us can read minds or astrally project to your geographic location.
- Supplicants are the exception to the rule. If a Supplicant reaches sixty (60) days inactivity, they will be removed regardless of any Leave of Absence. If (or when) they return, they may reapply and, on a case-by-case basis, continue their Inquisition.
- Members who have been removed for inactivity may reapply to the guild with a simple Letter of Intent upon their return.
