I almost dragged up an old post on this topic today, so I’m really glad you brought it up.
Agree 100%. Really, really, really want a change here.
The current system makes it very difficult to prove that a member hasn’t checked in, so I end up having to to monitor constantly and take screenshots. Even then, it is hard. It is not a task that I enjoy doing, especially since I end up writing every player down on paper and checking them off as they seemingly check in.
If a player does a super check-in but then instantly spends that entire contribution in the guild shop then there’s a possibility that I’ll be tricked into kicking them unjustly. Yikes.
So, I have to also rely on the last seen statistic in an attempt to verify what I’m seeing.
Just today, had a player who normally contributes heavy seemingly not check-in at all. Giving that player the benefit of the doubt, for multiple reasons.
If it was just me, I might not care so much. However, there’s a real person on the other end of each kick decision. There’s also a guild full of members looking for me to do what’s best for our very active guild.
On the last server, I was actually tricked into quitting a guild. Why should I stay when the leader contributes so little? Didn’t realize that the points would fall as they were spent. Assumed it was a lifetime contribution. Roles are now reversed. I’m now the leader who appears to contribute so little, even as I continuously contribute heavily.
