Greetings Everyone,

It may appear our calendar is full but in reality a lot of us are running extra events until someone who wants to lead can take over the shift. If you want to lead an event and are a Lorgair or higher please come talk to me in the Office and we can find you a time slot that works for you. Simply let us know that you want to lead and we can help you get that event going.

All of our leaders should be ready to surrender an event timeslot if they are leading more than 2 events a week.

Yes, we have some leaders that do a lot and if you look they fit in a certain time frame and honestly wish others would step up so they could be followers instead of leaders all the time. There really are a lot more holes in the calendar than we think, but we also have a lot of people that fit into the same 25% of the day as well. So it's a balance of people wanting leaders, but those willing to lead wanting other leaders to help in the time slots where not as many leaders are available. You should be able to approach any leader with an event posted and ask about working out timing with them on leading if they are posting a lot in the time frame you know you can lead. I know some are willing to step back and let others have the reigns and even keep asking for others in the time frame they play to grab and lead instead. So it's more about WHEN then how often and who. We really have most of the leaders around weekdays at 5pm server to maybe 1am server. Then there are a few that can fill in the other times when things are a lot quieter but usually an event can still pull 10 to 40 people depending on the day for that off peak time. We definitely do not FILL the calendar, just that we really can fill that NA prime time FAST. If you have stage fright about tyring to lead, there are plenty of people that will come out anyway and support you no matter how it turns out. We all had to learn sometime how to do what we wanted. =) So don't be afraid to talk to the leaders of your game time slots about getting some of the leading in so all those really wanting events to follow can have the leaders they need. Now I do have one question... Is there an issue with different types of events going on at the same time? I.E. PvE vs WvW vs RP. Now I definitely would not want PvE and even more so WvW with more than one at a time. But we have players that will only do one or the other and say they won't WvW, but they would love PvE going on as an option as well as vice versa. Sure it puts more than one thing at a time, but allows for more options of how to work as a family. Of course, my say is definitely not the final one. ;) Of course, I'm not sure how ruffled people are really getting over this is my time slot because it sure isn't happening NA day time during the week. Actually I wound up leading just so an event could be finished because the leader needed a break from leading and everyone did NOT want the event to end.

I would love to lead but have not been promoted to Lorgair even though it says that all requirements are met in green on my sign in page. Also I usually play at night 9pm-3am pacific and no one as of yet has sent me an invite to funny i group. I did request an invite more than once. My id is KiaKline.5836. I would also like to know what are the requirements for Anu? I play every day minus one or two nights out of the month and am looking forward to being able to lead groups. I enjoy PvE and WvW the most. I also like to do fractals and dungeons. I am not the best player but am always willing to learn and listen to others to become better. ;-)

The system marks accounts for promotion at 1am. Then a elder validates your progress and promotes you manually. For a funny I invite you need to mark your playtime in your "Update Profile". Then click "Request Re-Invite".

Thank you so much. ;-) Izzy sent me an email and I was not aware I had marked the incorrect playtime. I will mark it now and hope to see you soon in Club Gaiscioch. I really enjoy these WvW events during the time that I play and hope that they continue.

Could events that are no longer being run be eliminated from the calendar? I think that would free up time blocks and reduce the confusion that people have over whether or not an event is going to take place.

Are there any tutorials available that describe how to "score" events so that the participants get fellowship points?

Cyvil, not sure there is yet, but all leaders are able to walk you through the process. I would be happy to help if needed.

Hi Cyvil,

Yes that link is good, however, some of it has to be updated and we even talked about spvp claiming in GW2 at the leadership meeting yesterday. It was suggested that for spvp we use the Timed Event now and for WvW there are No more Orbs to run for ages; we claim a White Defence Icon for defence in WvW - the objective must be breached and repaired - can not claim for pushing them off a camp; also Fractals is a timed event now. Fog is undertaking many changes on the site, so if you have any questions the Elders, as well as Gma, myself, Goat, Jay and others can always answer your questions:).
