Guild Rules & Information
Light Wolves is an adult guild, run by and for the adult players of World of Warcraft. We do occasionally allow younger players to join, but only if they are known/related to current guild members who can vouch for them, and who are already aware of the type of guild we are.
First rule of the guild ... be nice!! It is up to you how much you interact with other guild members. You can be a lone player, someone who likes to just pop in for a chat or a highly active member. We do ask, however, if you do join in the guild chat that you do so in a considerate manner.
We DO NOT condone abusive or offensive behaviour (although bear in mind that "offensive behaviour" can mean different things to different people), nor do we condone any action that may be frowned upon by Blizzard (basically, anything that tries to work-around the controls they have put in place, such as botting, conversing with the opposing faction, account sharing, etc).
Please be considerate when playing and chatting with other guild members - if you wouldn't say something in real life to a stranger, face to face, then it isn't likely that it would be acceptable in the guild either ...
Alts (alternate characters) are welcome in the guild - please just let us know so that we can place a note in the Guild Roster.
We pride itself on not "doing" drama. We therefore take a very dim view of anyone promoting "drama" in any way, shape or form. This can consist of rumourmongering, swearing, taking over the guild chat channel for a personal conversation, attempting to "ninja" loot (taking loot you do not qualify for), creating "cliques" (a group of people who interact primarily within that group, excluding other guild members), begging for gold/items/help, harassing other guild members, taking part in "Barrens" type Trade chat and generally poorly representing our guild and/or guild members to other guilds/players.
Bear in mind that, when you speak in guild chat, you are broadcasting what you say to everyone online in the guild at that time ... please try to avoid subjects that may cause offence.
Please bear in mind that you asked to join us, therefore suggesting that you wished to be part of our guild and our way of playing. If you get involved in drama, despite our intention to avoid it, it suggests you no longer find our guild a good match for you, and we would suggest you find a guild who is a better fit.
Should you have a grievance, please let one of the Officers or the Guild Leader know, either by whisper or via the in-game mail system. We understand that in guilds there will occasionally be misunderstandings or problems ... a lot of these can be resolved simply by checking this website for information or by letting us know - being an Officer does NOT make us all knowing and we will occasionally miss things or make mistakes, so please don't take it to heart, we're friendly folk, honest!
Complaints will be taken seriously - depending on the offence it may result in a quiet word with the offender or, in certain circumstances, removal from the guild.
Removal from the Guild
There are various reasons for being removed from the guild, the usual one being that your character simply has not been active enough. Generally characters will be allowed to stay in the guild for a number of months of inactivity prior to being removed, although strictly speaking those in the first rank who has not been online for over two weeks, or any other rank for over a month, risk removal. The only exception to this is if those members elect to be placed (or we place them) in the rank put aside for long term absences when they plan to return. Once members are removed due to inactivity, a notice will be made on this website, in the "News" section and, if they have registered with this website, they will receive a message to that effect.
Any other removals from the guild will usually be simply because of a member not adhering to our rules. Please read them carefully. They are not difficult, and there are not many of them, but claiming a lack of knowledge is not a good enough excuse. Most members will be given at least one warning, often more, prior to removal - either via guild chat, whisper or an in-game mail.
If you have been removed from the guild and are unsure why, please contact either the guild leader or an officer. It should, however, have been explained to you and be obvious why it has happened. If you have been removed from the guild, please note that it was NOT done lightly, there WILL have been a good reason for it, and if we receive complaints that you are annoying members of the guild because of it, you will be reported to Blizzard and run the risk of your account being banned.
