I think I might consider disbanding guild.
I haven’t played Maple in about a week and it’s not because I’m busy with school (no one can procrastinate homework quite like I can). It’s because everytime I log on, someone finds a new way to irritate me. Which is not to say that I officially hate my Maple friends. I still love most of them (especially the MMOT ones that don’t log on) but I just can’t stand being around them.
So here, while I’m on the brink of quitting for good, I log on to see a level 13 guild member newly added to guild. Now, I’d be lying if I said that I don’t mind low level characters in my guild. In fact, I do mind. I DO mind that juniors will once in a while add their friends’ mules into my guild and think I don’t mind. I do mind low level characters because usually it IS a mule or inactive character. I find it incredibly disrespectful that they think I’ll allow my guild to play storage for their ignored characters.
On top of that, I was not consulted while the person was being invited. No one contacted me (almost all the juniors and regular members have my MSN which I am on literally all day, night, and even while at school). When I asked the junior who added the person if said person was in anyway a significant person (did they know them), of course the junior was AFK. And as ALWAYS, the new person ignored my questions.
They always do. I don’t get that. Back when I wasn’t a guild master, whenever I joined a guild, I NEVER ignored the guild master after I just joined, not even if I was busy or AFK (I’d come back and say ‘hi’). I was too annoyed to stick around long for an answer. As always, someone lost junior privaleges, I can’t stand playing Maple Story for anything but spending time with buddies, but most of them are either gone or getting intolerable. I’m SERIOUSLY considering disbanding and in the event I feel like playing again, I’d make a new guild with stricter guild rules.
I don’t make such tight rules because I’m a cranky jerk (not completely). It’s just impossible making an active, close guild with people who are mules, inactive, people who guild hop, etc.
So as far as MMOs go. I pretty much give up (if anything, just on Djien for now). Unless, things miraculously right themselves, I can’t shake the feeling of frustration everytime I log on and have to deal with people like this. I know I have no right to enforce so much in a game for everyone but they really take the joy, satisfaction and closeness I feel from being a guild master. People and their annoying tendencies on maple have turned me into a bitter, bitter hermit.
The thing is, there’s certain people in guild that I absolutely adore and don’t want to disband for their sakes (DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, Mark, Cheezeh, etc.). The best and only thing I can do right now is keep my distance before I go off like a bomb and do a mass telling-off and expulsion.
In other news, I bought the coolest berfday present EVER for someone recently. It’s a plush of the black knight from Monty Python and it has removable limbs. I’m predicting when he’s gonna lose the limbs.
