October 10 – Ruta kicked from Kiss My Axe, officially for repeated breaches of Rule 9 “the spirit of the [guild] rules” after 15 months…

Things Kiss My Axe had to do after Ruta left: get a new Voice server as Ruta’s home hosted Mumble seerer went offline. It’s trivial, but someone else had to take recruitment on  with Ash. Rewrite the guild Rules, I mean you wouldn’t want to keep using the ones Ruta wrote (including 9, the spirit of the these rules is more important than applying them to the letter)…surely?

If they organise another guild meetup, like the one in Cambridge, they’ll need to find someone to pay for a new batch of Guild Meetup T-Shirts and the meal for 8 adults. I don’t know if they want to kick that person from the guild a couple of weeks later though, the day before his birthday…that’s just not nice.

February 06 – Ruta leaves Crimson Sanctum.

Disappointed with the direction the GM seems hell bent upon Ruta discusses his reasons with the other officers and then leaves the guild. Very good people running the guild, Ruta was simply unhappy with the direction and attitude of a couple of the raiders. Not a /ragequit – owww, get me.

February 07 – Ruta joins Infamy. (Infamy, Infamy! They’ve all got it in fer me!)
