This is a detailed overview of our Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for priority for events. In this regard there is no confusion and no bias being shown for any members as all events are first come first serve bases.
For all events it is to be assumed that if it is possible for you to run, meaning you meet the minimum game requirements, then you are able to run. If in the event the event runner establishes a new minimum, gear rating, social rank, ect that should be clearly stated in the event. We do our best to have as few restrictions as possible to include all members of the guild.
If you sign up for an event it will be assumed you are showing up unless you say otherwise. If you cannot make it no one will shame you for it, even if it is 5 minutes before start time life happens. If you are going to be late that is ok just communicate. You have 15 minutes from the start time to show up before you lose your spot and it goes to the next person in priority on the list. Not showing up for an event or not responding to messages when you are late means that the group is required to wait until 15 after to replace you so please be respectful and communicate. If there is a minimum requirement placed on the event, gear ect. If you sign up you are saying you will be ready by the time the event starts. If you are unsure if you will be able to manage the difficulty in any way ask the event runner, if you are below the mark but they say it is fine you are ok to sign up. Communication is key.
On the sign up sheet for events there are several status' you can have.
Selecting a primary role will mark the role you plan to bring. Most operation groups are limited to 2 tanks, 4 dps, and 2 healers. People who select primary in these roles will get priority based on sign up time until these caps per role are filled. After that priority falls to reserve roles. It is important to note that if you signed up as the 5th primary dps and reserve tank and someone signs up after you and takes the tank primary spot you might not be able to run on this operation. It is good to look at the form results and make sure you are not signing up for a role that is already taken.
There might not be roles set for a particular event do to the nature of the event when that happens priority follows the next status type.
Then you can also list other status' such as
Selecting going will put you ahead of anyone who selecting maybe regardless of what time you sign up. Switching your status will also put you at the back of the line in regards of priority. Putting not going is the same as no signing up.
