What do you look for in a Guild Website?
I shot back one quick response:
Give non-WoW templates
I don’t care too much about the functionality, I do want to be able to read and leave comments, but the only thing that is important to me is being able to access the guild website when ever I want to.
It isn’t really relevant to me anymore anyway, for a couple of reasons:
- I am now the guild master of a guild that doesn’t and won’t have a website (a point of differentiation when I spam trade chat?)
- I have been told at work – look at WoW stuff, pack bags and go!
You know how I got caught?
I was making a post on my guild website asking for them to give us a work friendly theme option.
Unfortunately their awesome WoW theme was much more important than by ability to visit the site, to use the site.
They wouldn’t change the theme (or allow the selection of the default theme… too easy), so I won’t be using the guild page.
Why does it matter anyway?
Well I don’t know about you, but if I have time to get on the PC at home, I’m going to use that to play.
Updating my UI, reading blogs or joining in Guild website activities tend to fall into non WoW time.
When do we have the biggest blocks of non-WoW time. When do we plan our raiding week?
If you are a Guild Master/Guild Website Admin, you want people to use and appreciate your website. I have been a guild leader in a guild of 300-500 members where only 30 odd people ever visited the website… it hurts!
Anyway, too late for me.
Make sure it isn’t too late for your guildmates!
Gnomer and Out!
