There are three ways in which a guild can be disbanded:
If a guild cannot meet their rent for 3 continuous months, it will be
The guildmembers may decide to disband their guild. Should they do so,
the guildmaster may go to the members room and use the "startdisband"
command. This command will begin a 7-day vote. At the end of the 7
days, if more members have voted "yes" to disband than "no", the guild
will be disbanded and reverted to a clan. If at any time during the
7-day period the guildmaster wishes to halt the vote, they may use
"haltdisband" from the members room. If the members believe that the
guildmaster is trying to sabotage the guild, they should overthrow the
guildmaster and use "haltdisband".
The guildmembers may decide to merge their guild with another. There
is no set procedure on how that happens; any merges will be handled
on a case-by-case basis by the current Guilds Liaison.
In all cases of a guild being disbanded, the guild will revert to a
clan and the guild members will become clan members. So long as the clan
remains in existence (without being disbanded), it is possible to upgrade
to a guild once more and reclaim the former guild hall descriptions. If
the clan is ever disbanded, the guild hall descriptions will be lost.
