Amazon Basin Members & Community MembersThis community is made up of Amazon Basin Members (ABM) and Community Members (CM). Both play very important roles in what we do here and how we do it. If you heard about us from someone or bumped into us in-game, then stopped by and registered for our forums – you are a CM. CMs make up the majority of people who participate in this community – by far. They are the ‘meat and potatoes’ if you will. If they like what they find here, they stick around. If they prefer the ‘win at all costs’ crowd, then they’ll figure out they don’t really belong and eventually move on.
ABMs were all once CMs. They were part of the ones who liked what they found here enough to stick around. They eventually decided they wanted to get involved in the administration portion of the community – they wanted to spend more time here making things work better.
Benefits to Being a Community MemberAs a CM, you can post on our forums and participate in our in-game guilds. You will have every opportunity to become a very important pat of The Basin – from organizing activities, writing guides, and/or forming groups in-game for specific tasks. Another benefit (some may say) is that you are not required to help make decisions about how the guild is run. All you have to do is show up, play nice, and show some class. That’s it.
Benefits to Being an Amazon Basin MemberABMs enjoy the same privileges as CMs with regard to forum participation and in-game activities. The major difference between the two is that ABMs decided they wanted to become more of a permanent fixture here. As such, they’ve gone through the process of petitioning for membership. The process of becoming an ABM is outlined below and can take anywhere from 3 months to a year. Since CMs have the ability to fully participate in our in-game guilds, only those who really want to have more control over how this place is run actually need to apply.
Getting into The Basin’s Hellgate:London in-game guildAnyone who has already registered on our HGL forums can become a member of The Basin’s Hellgate:London in-game guild. The in-game guild is comprised of ABMs, CM, Officers, etc. Once you’ve registered on our forums and said ‘Hi’ in our Hospitality Suite forum, send a Whisper (") to one of The Basin’s Officers in-game with the request to be guilded. They’ll get you taken care of.
Guidelines for Becoming an Amazon Basin Member (ABM)
To become a member of the Amazon Basin, you must be recommended by members already in the guild. This is accomplished by spending time playing with our members in realm games and posting/interacting with others in our forums.
Since this process is carried out by The Amazon Basin members as a whole, please understand the length of time involved in getting a recommendation may not be a 1 week process. We are always looking for new friends to play with. Time spent playing with current members and posting in our forums is never ill spent. It's the time you spend doing these things that help you and us get to know each other better.
The Amazon Basin does not have a set of rules and regulations. However, our About Us states that members "conduct themselves in a manner which promotes the fun of the game". Whiners, hoarders, and loners are no fun to play with in cooperative games, so bear that in mind as you play in one of our games.
Every online universe or server is populated with players who are "no fun", and if there's any doubt as to what's "fun" and what's "no fun", don't be afraid to ask. Members of this guild find a spirit of consideration and cooperation in Amazon Basin grouping that is unparalleled in powergamer guilds. Many of you may not have experienced this in online games, so if this is you, we hope that you find playing with Amazon Basin members as rewarding as we have. Remember though, you're in the games to check us out as well. Don't feel the need to be someone you're not. Relax, enjoy yourself, and have fun while playing - we always do!
Getting the ball rolling
As mentioned above, the choosing of new members will be a collective decision of the Amazon Basin members that have played with you and can take quite some time. After you've been here a while, you'll start to get an idea of what we're about. Once you understand the type of people we're looking for, our guidelines for behavior, and what we expect of our members, you'll be able to make the decision of whether you want to join us as a member. If you've decided to ask for membership, use these points to help you accomplish this goal:
If you have additional questions about what type of players we are looking for, any additional requirements we may have, or are interested in what others have said about our guild and our game play, please drop by our General Discussion forum. This is where you can ask any question you have relating to the guild or the game.
