    It depends, I’ve been in various guilds in different games and some I got real close with, some not at all. I’m not sure how it turns out either way either :P.

    I’m ashamed to say that I’ve pulled that disappearing act once on guild before. It was exactly like you described, I was on everyday for two whole months during my school holidays, didn’t really talk very much either, but always responded when someone asked in guild chat for help, and when school started, I went poof without a word.

    I was pretty close with my Lineage 2 guild however. Well, everyone sort of was with each other. There’s a thread on our forums with everyone’s MSN contact and irl phone numbers. It actually came from when we did competitive raid bosses restlessly and had to call vital classes up who weren’t present. So if someone disappeared, I suppose that list would be useful.

    I am also in a very small guild, so most of us will say something before disappearing. But there have been a few as you described (always there, rarely speaking) and they have gone “poof”.

    I wonder and pray they have just moved on to a place they are happy. I have done the disappearing act in a guild or two myself, but it was always guilds where no-one ever acknowledged I was even there. As a leader in the small guild I am in, I always say hi to those that log in, whether they answer or not so it can be disheartening to find them gone one day with still no word.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I like your blog, especially the role playing stories. You should write a book like that! 😉
    On the guild members… I’ve never been a guild leader, and I did leave from a few guilds without letting anyone know, but those were guilds I didn’t have close contacts with anyway.
    Though I was in a guild once where we really were a pretty tight group, until the leader mentioned that he couldn’t play much for a while because he had to go to hospital. We never saw him again, and we really did worry then…
