One of the things on my to do list is sort out is the guild bank. It was partially tidied when we moved servers by Lushnek, but really, it needs a total spring clean. I mean, have a look at what's in the tabs:
The donation tabs are full of well meaning people but there is also a lot of crap in there! I think I will have to start removing everything from it.
There is also a lot of empty space. And you can see that there are no flasks or herbs in the guild bank because people have been supplying their own, and it is quite a cost.
And yes you can see all the Imperial Silkworms and Zeppelin kits that we stored in there as a joke as well!
One of the things that we don't do in our guild is compulsory guild donations. We have an allowance for guild repairs, but at the end of the last raid we were running low on repair money and the guild repairs only covered a little of what was required. At the moment it's still very low, and most people have to fork out their own cash for raid repairs.
We also don't have an excess of guild cash. When Fue was GM he sold a lot patterns and the guild bank had a lot of money. These days, nothing sells for much, so there hasn't been much of that, and so the guild bank only gets funds from questing, raids, dungeons and scenario completions as a guild.
I think what I might do is make only one tab for donations and make everyone constantly take stuff out, anything that's not taken gets sold. But maybe I should make a separate toon for that so that I can separate out the gold from the guild bank from my own piddly gold pile.
I wonder what other raiding guilds banks look like? It would be nice if our bank had enough money to get herbs to make flasks for raids so people don't have to supply their own but I think that may be a while off yet. At least we're good on feasts for now...
