An annoucement was made today by the Board Members of the Guild V2.0. It can be found here.
There are a number of reasons for this decision and the staff at TTH support White Nights, Princess Lefty Wonderwoof, Scout and Neko in this move forward.
At this time, the Guild V2.0 forum will remain open, but discussions will be undertaken with the ™ owner of the Guild V2.0 as to its future.
In recent weeks it has become regrettable that a concept as simple, fun and well meaning as the GV2.0 had to become subject to discussions of a legal nature. It essentially took away the essence of what was good about the Guild; the members, their spirit and their fun and turned it into something else entirely.
TTH neither has the funds or the desire to be involved with legal matters and the time required to do so would put too much of a strain on the running of the site.
If you have questions regarding the Guild V2.0 please contact myself or Boop and we will reply as soon as we can, or post an update if the same queries are being asked by a number of members.
I know this is a contentious topic, but please remember to adhere to the rules of the forum in any posts or threads.

The owner of the Guild V2.0 ™ (trademark) has requested that the Guild V2.0 forum is hidden from view at this time. This has been actioned.
The forum has not been deleted and threads and posts are intact.
When a decision is reached between the ™ owner and TTH we will update the members.

It is not owned and as such, demands made to TTH were denied. The remaining board members chose to start over with a new group and name to allow the continuation of the many runs and events so many members utilize on a daily and weekly basis.
If you have further questions regarding this post or still do not understand, PM for clarification but the above is the chain of events that has led to the recent changes and we believe all relevant information has been posted.
