New Discord Officer Up For Vote (Vanguards only)

A new officer is up for nomination to take up the responsibility of maintaining our Discord server (among other things) in CV. He is keen not only to promote interactions between members of the guild, but also to recruit more members into our fold. Going forward towards Path of Fire content, we can expect to see many fresh new faces coming into GW2 for the first time, so our hope is that many of them will discover and settle into CV as their long-term home.

You may or may not know that CV’s unwritten-yet-practised policy is that officers can only be selected after 1 year’s worth of membership in the guild. Beyond longevity, an officer of CV has to have displayed upright moral standards, unwavering dedication to the guild, attention to guild events and rules, general activeness both in-game and on the forums and a hardworking attitude that we’ll require for guild administration and other such meetings. By now you should realise that it isn’t an easy or quick task picking out the right guy/gal for the job, but we believe that it’s worth the effort because the officers of CV display the image and carry out the iconic guild culture that we have carried through our 13 years of existence.

The CV council has therefore selected Julliant to be CV’s newest Discord officer. Julliant has been in CV since early 2016. Even though he started out as an ally rank, to be with us temporarily from our old time friend Serenity’s Edge [TRE] that for a time went inactive, he’s since grown to be a prominent face during SEA hours and early NA hours, attending missions on a regular basis, leading teams into puzzles/challenges as well as PVP. And during the week, both participates and starts up groups for fractals, dungeons and such. He’s proven to be a highly responsible, helpful and patient member, who’s gone above and beyond during the setting up of CV’s new Discord server; designing pictures, formatting posts, running permissions testing, and providing advise for Discord functionality. We feel that his recommendation to promotion is both timely and practical since without prompting, he’s already been filling the role of an officer – just minus the additional permissions, why not make it official? 🙂

For those who’re voting for the first time, this is how it will work:
The poll will run till the end of this week (ie. it will officially end on the 8th of Aug – 4 days). Julliant will require 80% of all votes from full members to be voted in.

So please consider your votes very seriously, all votes are logged and final, therefore we appreciate no prank votes please. If you feel that you do not know him enough to make a fair vote, feel free to private message him in the guild or on Discord. But please do not completely withhold your vote, be it leaning towards the positive or negative, so that we will have a clear picture of the majority guild preference.

All votes are confidential, so do not feel the need to reveal your choice unless you absolutely want to.

Post here or whisper or PM any of the other officers/leaders if you have any questions concerning the poll. Better to clear your doubts before you start voting.

Conspiracy Contest

Second monthly contest \o/

July 2nd is also known as world UFO day. A day on which we consider the possibilities of alien life and whether or not we may have already encountered extraterrestrials. Of course opinions about this differ a great deal and a leap into the world of conspiracy theories is easily made. For this contest I would like you to consider this in the context of our in-game world of Tyria.
Submit your wildest Tyrian conspiracy theory and try to back it up (if you can) with some sort of evidence. This can be anything from an in-game item that seems to point in that direction to an npc comment or a snippet of lore from the wiki or books. You can be serious about it and dive in to lore, or you can have a bit of fun and come up with something completely crazy. All options are open, I’ll even allow entries involving speculations about possible expansion plots (hence the spoiler warning)

Please submit your entries before Sunday the 23rd of July 6pm GMT Make sure your entry post starts with ENTRY: and the name of your entry.

After closing the contest a poll will be up listing all entries and all guildies will be able to vote for their favourite entry. The poll will be open until Sunday the 30th of July 6pm GMT, after which the entry with most votes will be declared the winner.

The winner will be receiving a nice gift and infinite fame of course. ^^ Good luck all \o/ I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
