    So this begs the question to me Anet...

    Since our guilds are now officially tracked by /help and are officially "entered" into blank pages on GWW...what sort of info should we put there? If anything?

    I figure you might have a bot that'll track each guild's info and post it later on or something (just general stuff, date of creation, alliance guilds, ranks, faction, members, etc) but I dunno.

    Depends, IMO

    I would suggest going to the GWW page about guild pages (it's Formatting: Guild Pages or something like that - believe it or not we are not allowed to link to the OFFICIAL wiki here) and taking a loot at it. It mentions the kind of thing expected (by the wiki community, not by Arena Net) to be in a guild page.

    Um, excuse me?

    Please don't spread false information.

    Linking to the official ArenaNet-run wiki site is perfectly acceptable.

    Yes, I'll refrain from posting what a member of the Administration has told me (after delaying the answer for two months and giving a very thoughtful reply that consisted on "No :)"). Good to see the left hand knows what the right one is doing.

    Given that the matter was brought up among the moderation, I think you're either misinterpreting something that was said to you, or taking it out of context.

    Don't tell me that surprises you. It happens in a lot of organizations, especially ones that use volunteers.

    I noticed on the 'Guild Pages' poilicy page that any guild page that doesn't receive a 'substantial edit' for one month will be tagged as inactive and then deleted one month after that (the page will be, not the guild itself). What's the point of auto-creating a page for guilds if it's just going to end up deleted a couple months later.

    Or am I misunderstanding how this works? I didn't see the guild I'm in listed on GWW. Dang, now I'm just more confused than before *sigh*

    Why do links to "the-other-site" and "the-other-wiki" get deleted (at least weeks ago they were) but not links to the official wiki?
    Doesn't the official wiki more or less contain the same stuff that's in this site's wiki? I thought that was the rule, if we have something similar we can't link other resources that talk about the same.

    Strange much.

    Probably because it is the official wiki. What use is a Guild Wars Fan Site if they don't allow official Guild Wars information to be show?
