Q: What is a d2jsp Guild, and why would I want to join one?
A: A d2jsp Guild is a way for you to create a common club, or clan, or guild for you and your friends. Each member of a guild gets the tag next to their posts, private messages, and in their profile. Guilds could be used or useful for a number of things, such as trading, knowing that everyone in guild X is trustworthy. Be creative!

A: Go to the main Guild List page, and scroll to the bottom. Click the big bold link you see. It costs 2500fg to create a guild.
Q: How do I join a Guild? How do I get members to join a Guild I created?

Click the name of that guild to go to their member list. At the bottom left of the page will be a link: "Click Here To Request to Join This Guild". Click this to request to join the guild. Once you do this, you must wait for the Guild owner to approve your join request. Please note, some guilds disable the ability for new members to request to join, and a link may not appear on those guilds.
Q: How do I leave a Guild? Can I get kicked out of a Guild?
A: To leave your Guild, go to your guild member list, then at the bottom right click the Leave button.

Q: What features are planned for the d2jsp Guilds?
A: Many features planned for Guilds. More information will be posted as features are developed.
Q: What is a public Guild Charter?
A: A public Guild Charter is a brief description about what your guild is, and what it stands for. Typically, you outline your rules and guidelines, and any guild policies and/or requirements you may have for the members. This is a publicly displayed message, that basically informs new potential members on what is expected of them to become a member.
Q: Why is this stuff so expensive? Why is there a base member limit?
A: Guilds are meant to be a privilege to those that are willing to pay for them. Having a high price means that the people that purchase them will probably take them more seriously. Having a base member limit that you can expand is to allow guilds to be selective in who they allow to join their guild. Furthermore, if guilds charge people to enter their guild, the member will likely be better behaved than if they had nothing to lose.
Q: What is the policy on Guild behavior?
A: You have to follow the site rules, the same as before. The administration reserves the right to rename or close/delete any guild for any or no reason.
Q: How do I approve/deny members that are requesting to join my Guild?

Next, go to your My Guild page, and at the bottom will be a list of Pending Members. Check the checkbox, and click the appropriate button at the bottom of your pending list.
Q: How do I remove/edit members that are already in my Guild?
A: First, you have to be the Guild Owner, or have Remove Member or Edit Member rights assigned to your rank.

Q: How do I change a members Rank in my Guild?
