cuteratMy guild has always had a “just for fun” rank.  It serves no useful purpose, changes on a whim (usually mine), and is seldom occupied for more than a few seconds at time. 

Currently, that rank is Fails Frogger.  Two nights ago, when our fury warrior and unholy death knight were competing for critter kills in Heroic Utkarde Keep — much to my dismay, gentle soul that I am — it was Evil Rat Killer.  And in our Karazhan days, it was I Wipe On Chess… in honor of the time that we actually did.  /shameface

It’s a silly little thing, but in some ways, it’s the silly little things that make a guild.  The server measures our success in terms of our raid progression — but at a time that trade-channel PuG’s are one-shotting Malygos, our identity as a guild is defined by the strength and character of our community.

    Our guild has a rank like that too, and it has absolutely no permissions at all. Currently it’s called Bad Joke Limit, so if our druid CL gets a little fiesty (as he does) and starts regaling the guild with horrible puns or what have you, down he goes. It’s like a time out, and it works pretty well. It’s also been named for terribad guild members (once they’d been kicked out). Fun times 🙂

    We used our bottom rank as a “silence” once, too, and every now and then I miss it — usually when the other resto shaman (who sounds a lot like your druid CL!) starts running off at the mouth. Unfortunately, he’s since discovered Vent, so Fails Frogger has had all of its permissions restored … in case I ever forget to restore someone to their rightful rank (or just don’t want to, lol).
