  5. Trixologist added a post in a topic Can we change max. of 30D for contracts? How about infinite time duration?   

    No, I can't get excited for neverending contracts.   It expires so that there is a constant reengagement of the relationship.  As a member, they are recommitting to  service the guild (in whatever way fancies your guild), and as a GM you are recommitting your leadership to them and their in game experience.  They opt in to be with you.
    Everything about this sounds like a management issue.  Could the guild system as a whole be improved - yes, but this scenario sounds like its more you than the system.   I have a feeling nothing that anyone says will make a difference here but I'll give it a go anyway.  
    First - delegate, as others have suggested put your Admin team to work so that there are clear areas of responsibility, contract renewals being one of them. For a guild of that size as a leader (if you are an engaged leader) all you should be responsible for on this is the renewal of your Admins contracts.   
    Second set expectations and clear rules with your guild members.  The main guild channel is X, the main contract renewal date is xx. The message to the members is then " contract renewals are done on the 11th of the month (or every Friday after guild missions or whatever works for your team). Admin XY will holler in guild chat and on guild megas when it is time to come to channel name #__" for contract renewals." and then setup a fallback procedure to catch those who don't make it. And then do it. It is beyond silly for you to try to hunt down 100 members or even 15 + manage the guild when there are 99 of them and 1 of you. Clean up your process.
    Most logical leaders will do everything from designating a specific renewal Admin to even using a specific Discord room to make such requests (and have Admins or a bot monitor the request channel).  Others will use the game itself to help you manage it based on current period activity (anyone who gets to 10K activity = proactive renew and raise, all others = nothing to worry about, unless blue then decide if you want to keep them when they get back or just kick for fresh meat).  Get creative but make it work for you. Nothing about that should be hard or even challenging.  
    At your size, I'd figure the pay would be better than 30K, node wars aside. I'm actually finding it quite laughable that its not. If you can't figure this one out..I don't even.  And LOL if members or Admins aren't willing to follow expectations to renew their contracts...then you can directly blame yourself because that's the kind of environment you have created.
    Leadership must have different requirements over in EU ;/

  15. Trixologist added a post in a topic Patch Notes - March 15th 2017   

    This has been like this for a very long time. There is nothing actually new here. In fact the note should have been included last week when they actually made changes to guild war declaration costs and this was included on the new tooltip.  Guilds have been getting warred on for months thinking they were protected or the system was bugged but its really just that we never had the actual information about declarations presented to us.
