For many years, the Guild of Messengers and the Guild of Writers have existed as distinct entities in the Uru community. Collaboration and communication have always been the key words to describe our relationship, itself based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. After much thinking and planning, we have decided to take this one step further: we are proud to announce that both guilds are fusing together to form the Guild of Messengers and Writers!

We'll be providing more information about the GoMaW at the AGM, but here are the essential points you need to know right now.

Why?

We feel like there are too many similarities between our Guilds to continue with this unnecessary distinction between the two groups. Many of our members are also Writers, including our GMs, and we frequently discuss semi-private Messengers business with various Writers (and vice-versa). This new identity will also give us a better chance at remaining a core pillar of the all-too-fragmented Uru community.

How?

This has long been in the works, and we've decided that we are now sufficiently prepared for it to happen. We're currently busy deciding how the new Guild structure will be layed out and preparing to merge the websites together. Here's what we've hashed out so far:
  • There will now be three Guild Masters, each of which with the same amount of power but with separate duties,
  • Hoikas, a.k.a. Adam Johnson, will keep his position as Tsar and will have joint control of the GoMaW,
  • Doobes and Lyrositor will be promoted to the status of Directors, both of which will have equal power among the three Guild Masters,
  • Messengers and Writers will be invited to recreate their accounts on the new GoMaW website (URL to be determined), but this is not mandatory. Members of the GoMaW will be expected to take up both Messenging and Writing duties.
  • The GoMaW Logo will be a fusion of both the previous GoMe logo and the previous GoW logo. The official Guild colors will be a dark orange. We will also organize a contest for the creation of this logo, as the one pictured above is a temporary, working logo; anyone can participate.
  • We will be sending a petition to Cyan for the creation of a new Guild T-Shirt with the official Guild colors and logo. This shirt will replace the Messengers' and Writers' T-Shirt, but will allow simultaneous access to both the Messengers' Pub and the Writers' Pub.

When?

Right now. As of the writing of this post, the GoMaW is now an official entity. We are currently really busy setting up the new website, so hang tight for more information!

If you have comments and suggestions about the proposed changes, we'll be happy to listen to them and eventually implement them. Membership will always be open to any and all.

If that's an April's fool it's a really good one, it sounds absolutely serious ... :P

In case it is not, I'd have some serious questions about that fusion and the way it is intended to be set up and managed,
but I'll wait for further confirming statements as to its validity before going into that ... :D

Three Guild Masters?

I don't know whether to invoke Highlander ("There can BE only one.") or The Sith which offers pretty much the same fate for any Master and Apprentice.

:P

It more and more smells like a conspiracy ... I'd rather go with the stance of the Cavern Criers ... maybe ... 8)

We have been overwhelmed by the amount of support from both Messengers, Writers, and interested third-parties (we're still sorry to see you go Nev'yn, though); we have already received several logo submissions from eager artists, and one in particular stood out. Without further ado, I give you the new GoMaW logo, courtesy of Doobes himself:

No conspiracy, no fusion of the powers to subdue the rest of the (D'NI) world ??? ... I'm so glad to hear that, Lyros, and to get to know the great news in such a cute and lovely way ... :P

I'm sorry to hear that Nev'yn's leave seems not to be included into the good news ... Bye bye, Nev'yn, and thank you for an awesome job perfectly well done and accomplished in a most gentle and diligent way ... :D

Oops, sorry for making you think that - Nev'yn was in on the joke actually. I don't believe he's going away just yet. :P

Great joke. Posting it in several places to make it seem more authentic was a nice touch. Kudos.

This is why I never trusted that April's Fool joke. It was too huge and implied too much guys all of the sudden at the same time... :lol: It's was too fishy :wink:
