The guild officers have clarified our official policy regarding TG members who apply for membership with other guilds. We have updated our FAQs to reflect this policy and have stickied this policy in the Announcements and SOP forum. What follows is a quote of this policy:
Applying to another guild: If you are a TG member and decide that you would be happier in another guild, we wish you well. We also expect you to immediately cease your membership in TG at the time you apply to another guild. While we understand that there can be many reasons to change guilds, remaining a member in TG while actively seeking to join another guild is inconsistent with our goals.
If you believe you have valid reasons for staying in TG while seeking to join another guild, you may request consideration of your situation by your class leader or by one of the TG senior officers (Beep, Crebis, Luna or Ricca).
