As OHB noted, Greeters aren't on hiatus, just the guild that supports them, and therein lies much of the basis for these discussions.
I think that brings up a very good point there as well. I know I often say "Greeters" and refer to the GoG, while sometimes I'll say GoG or Greeters to refer to the people. So perhaps we need to set some specific definitions for this discussion to avoid any misunderstandings?
This is definitely a problem. I think we all need to be clear when we have issues with the GoG *leadership* as opposed to issues having issues with the individual greeters. I don't think anyone wants to attack the individual Greeters. The active greeters are still doing good work in the cavern - when there's one of them around.
The GoG leadership, on the other hand, has repeatedly refused to consider opening membership and re-activating the guild as a whole, and I've heard rumors that at this point that leadership is refusing to allow any sort of elections to change the internals of the Guild. If the leadership considers the guild inactive, and refuses to allow any members to have a voice in changing that status, then the guild is dead. There may still be active greeters... but there's no longer a Guild of Greeters.
