As I was browsing the new demo of the site, I came across the official roster of FR. Quite a few of the characters display "generic" portraits, which is an indication of many months of inactivity.
Starting at 3 p.m. PST this afternoon (server), everyone (regardless of rank) will have until Friday, May 6, 2011 to log in and "reactivate" their 'toons. On Saturday, May 7, 2011 any characters who have a greater than six month inactivity status will be kicked from the guild. Any mains with three or more months of inactivity will be demoted to Grunt.
None of this personal; for the sake of managing things more efficiently, it has to be done.
FR has also turned on the Guild Recruitment feature that Blizzard unveiled in 4.1. We will, hopefully, start picking up some fresh talent, soon.
