Believe it or not you are not the only person who comes from a professional art background. I however, do not have 40 years experience as I am only in my late twenties.

Also please note where I specifically mention about using the forum for planning, please also note that there are currently people posting on said forum discussing how such a guild should be planned.

Also the term fine art refers to a aspect of art where you are not channeled into doing one thing, it is an across the board area of work (I spent 7 years studying specifically "Fine Art").

I would like to also point out that I first build the site and forums almost a year ago just prior to the Guilds being released in Uru Live, I have yet to hear a complaint until now.

I want to make this work, but make no mistake, I have no issue with walking away if arguments start up, I have no time for that anymore. As D'lanor said, bickering is really not needed.

Now had I gone out set the forum up with specific structures in mind fair enough, but I set it up with one section for planning specifically.

[edit] And the post I was addressing has been removed, my point still stands.

Back to topic

In PM with Ace the subject of an umbrella guild came up. I had to ask him where he got that idea and why he thought that the GoC was the one. I'm not much of a D'ni historian but there are sites where such creatures exist. Seems from what I read there is some grounds for that idea. Hmmm.

However, it is not going to hurt the GoC's feelings if we are not an umbrella... explorers have been picking on umbrellas and umbrella makers ever since I can remember...

I guess I have the most say about the GoC... Not because I have rank, but simply because I talk the most. While Cyan may have had plans for the GoC I'm not at all sure that still applies to the Restoration Experiment. The D'ni Era history is probably not really going to control what we do OOC to organize our efforts to build UCC. I think trying to apply IC to OoC efforts will just make things a hassle. This is supposed to be fun. Turning it into organization, doing meetings, maintaining records, member advancement... this starts to sound like a job. So, unless there is really someone that wants to run a guild and be an umbrella and try to organize all of us and will do the WORK... I suggest giving that idea up.

Talking about how we will do GUILDS… what they will be called… who can be in them… oh man, that is not even getting a teacup built for UCC.

If you want to build a Guild of Fine Arts and Ace wants to do that and Tweek wants to help, I’m for it. If someone has a problem with that, they do not need to join. But, don’t fuss with Ace or Tweek. If you want to help them volunteer, I did.

I like the GoC. Members were doing all sorts of things and other than the Greeters was for a time one of the busier guilds. Oddly our maps were more art than science. The best maps were made by good artists. Pa’trick, then Grand Master got started doing paintings of and cataloging plants, animals, and stuff in the Cavern and ages. The Guild was involved in most everything people were doing in the Cavern. Not because we tried to be, we just offered help to those that wanted to do something. So, we may have been turning into an umbrella (shudders). But, it was about service to the community not being a guild.

With the GoW and GoMa leading the way with UCC many of the active members have moved to those guilds. Hooray! There is stuff there to do. I see their stuff as having to happen before I have anything to map. So, I see interest in GoC as something that comes later in the process. (Don't let that stop you from joining the GoC now )

Trying to figure all this out now and debate it now… I suggest we go for constructive criticism and let fans do whatever they want… If you want to complain, go read this thread:

Otherwise: What have you done today to help out?
