[blah, blah, blah]
I live in San Diego, California. The Older Gamers is a perfect home for me. Over the years, I've joined quite a few North American guilds. In almost every case (except 1), NA guilds are full of a**hats who imitate Guild Officers & Elite members. And they were constantly filled with drama. I've been banned from a few and have been removed from in-game guilds for speaking my mind when I saw officers doing things that were against their official guidelines...but because they were officers, I was banned. And I reported the offences in private messages to the guild leaders...never posted them in the forums.
Since TOG is an official non-profit organization, they have to follow much stricter rules. But these people are actually much less strict and a lot more fairer. The things I reported about officers in other guilds wouldn't get me banned here...I would be thanked for reporting the behavior. Are all the TOG officers/leaders saints? Heck no. But most of their issues are dealt in private meetings and are decided over time by all the officers...not just 1 or 2 leaders. This is the kind of guild I would rather join than one with "God-complexes".
Now, granted... TOG doesn't permit trolling/spamming. For example: While I can state that Snowbull is a frustrated arm-chair movie director and AlphaGamma is just plain looney...I won't be banned for it in an instant. I'll be asked why I said those things and it would all be worked out. The reason why I don't say those things, except as examples, is because both of those people would probably come back with funny and put-you-in-your-place zingers that would show the world how stupid I actually am. Issues are usually dealt with humor and everyone goes back to enjoying the games/forums. In fact, I think one of the requirements of an officer/leader is a huge sense of humor!
So, yeah, if you like a fun, fair, funny, fantastic (sorry, 4 f's are my limit) guild, then TOG is best suited for you.
