Default A missing guild leader

Our guild leader has been offline for quite some time, so I'm wondering if something has happened so that he will not be returning to the game. Only a guild leader has access to several key functions, so basically we're somewhat crippled.

My two questions are this:

1) Is there a cutoff date for inactive characters where they will be deleted?
2) If the above were to happen and our leader's character got deleted, what happens to the guild? Does the highest level character or the one who has donated the most get the leadership position (if he/she is an officer), or will the guild just disband automatically, or what?

Accounts are never deleted because of inactivity.

However, in the special case of an inactive guild leader, there is sort of a cutoff date: when the guild leader is inactive for more than 21 days, one of the buttons in the guild window changes so it can be used to put the leader down. When this button is clicked, the guild leader loses this title and becomes a normal officer; the officer next in line will become the new guild leader.

Duly noted. It looks like it hasn't been quite 21 days yet (though it feels like it) as the button hasn't appeared, but at least now we know. Thanks.

You sure about this? I'm pretty sure he's been inactive for longer than 21 days but I don't see any buttons changing to allow us to remove him from his position.

Type /act in the guild chat, then hover over his nick. Then you will see hw long since he logged in.

Question back up plan

i've heard of this with other guilds. if nothing works, the devasters will make room for your members, if you like. we have +72/70 gold/exp and are a pretty casual guild. we only have 6 open slots now, but could get more in fairly short order (say a week or so). not a great solution, but would make a big guild. mail robbo in game if you can't get it ironed out. good luck

Try the /act command in the guild chat as Zhiva said. Maybe your guild leader has been on without anyone noticing?

If your leader has definitely been off for more than 21 days and still there is no button to dethrone him, it might be a bug and you should report it accordingly.

Correct, if it's been longer than 21 days, let us know.

That only works if the last server reset was more than 21 days ago. There was a time when you wouldn't have been able to tell if someone was actually gone longer than 2 weeks because the server was reset so often.

Useful little trick, wish I had known it earlier. Looks like he did sneak in a session a couple of weeks ago, but now I can really keep an eye on it.

Robbo, thanks for the offer. I don't really want to take it up as I have personally put over 13k gold into this guild, but if our leader sneaks in another session before the cutoff date and then goes AFK for another three weeks I may have to.
