History

The Guilds were reinstated in March of 2023. Current Guilds went through an application process to get creation approval, and then had to show enough activity to get a subforum of their own inside of the greater Guild Hall. As of September 2023 there are nine official Guilds, six of which have been granted subforums of their own. Guild Leaders serve as co-leaders within their groups, much as a Heart/Soul do for the Ajahs. Guild Leaders volunteer and/or are nominated by fellow members of their respective guilds, and sign up for a 6 month term, at this time rotating in Sept./October and March/April. Their main purpose is to drive activity in and for the Guilds by leading discussions, and creating fun activities/events within their groups and for the site as a whole.
