Unformatted: message box for gb contribution norms


Chief Warrant Officer
Dont kill me but i did search for this before posting and didnt find anything....
With lots of new players getting to grips with the game the subject of contributing to gb's can be tricky. A lot of angst and miffed messaging could be avoided if there was a message box added to players profiles for 'rules' for contributions eg 'guild only contributions' 'levels 1-4 guild only' 'do not level any gb;s' 'all contributions welcome' '1.9 only' etc. Obviously players can merrily ignore such requests but conscientious players in search of fp investments could find it helpful to avoid bad blood? Sometimes messaging gb owners does not get a reply until an opportunity is past. At least if a 'rule book' was shown then a gb owner cannot complain if they dont alert other players.

Yes there is profile message box but many dont complete it or just use as abuse for potential attackers.

If there was a title 'GB contribution rules' default at 'none' it may focus minds and help others?
Where can I vote "no"?
The profile message box we already have is sufficient for messages like that. Not many reads it though. Would they read an additional message box?
Well, at least format your idea properly, before it's thrown into the "unformatted" dumpster.
