We have been having some trouble of late with attendance at our raids. As you know, Morbid Curiosity does not have a minimum required attendance. We do, however, have attendance policies that we ask all of our raiders to follow that are very straightforward.
If you plan on raiding, sign up on the calendar.
This is done so that we can get an appropriate headcount in advance of the raid and so that we can compose the right group for the raid. Failing to sign up when you plan on attending means that you are not counted in this planning, and it makes things more difficult for the raid leaders.
If you sign up and cannot attend, notify an officer.
This can be done a number of ways. On the forums, through in-game mail or messages, through our Facebook page, through contacting a guildmate and asking them to pass along the message, by sending an email to morbidcuriosityktATgmailDOTcom, by phone number if you have it or by any other means you may have at your disposal. While emergencies can and do happen, when you sign up and don’t attend, it throws off all the planning that signing up assists with in the first place. It means that we might not be able to do the raid we had planned on doing, and it puts 9 (or 24) other people in a difficult position. Repeatedly signing up and no-showing will result in you receiving lower priority for raid slots, and it is an immediate disqualifier for any probationary raider.
If you choose to raid with another guild, you may lose your raiding membership status.
We expect our raiding members to reserve their saves for Morbid Curiosity raids. If you decide to raid elsewhere, we may move you down to social membership status, which will mean that you lose your bank privileges. If you wish to raid with another guild, we harbor you no ill will - there’s lots of reasons to choose a different raid, such as friends, schedule and differing loot policies. We hope that if you decide to do this, that you will give us the courtesy of letting us know.
If you disconnect or AFK unexpectedly, you may be replaced.
Please do not take this personally. We wish to get the raid moving as quickly as possible, so that means that if someone disconnects, we will usually wait a few minutes before replacing them. If you disconnect while we are still forming up the raid and we need to sit someone out, you will most likely be the one dropped from the raid. If you know you are going to be dropping offline, warn an officer. If you go AFK unexpectedly and are gone for more than 5-10 minutes, we may replace you. Keep in mind that 10 minutes is 5.5% of our raid time, and we offer breaks for the full group within the raid time. Please do your best to limit AFKs to our break times by keeping the phone, some snacks and a drink nearby. Go to the bathroom before the raid and during breaks. While we know that real life can happen unexpectedly, and we encourage you to address things as they happen, if you have to leave we might have to replace you in order to keep going.
