    My recent encounters with new players have left me wondering if new players can find adequate support from the community right from the start of their maple journey. OnionSweatie

    This led me to think that guilds and communities are probably the most effective support system there can be for any new players. For that reason, new players are highly encouraged to join one ASAP so they can find the support they need.

    The issue with this is that new players do not know what guilds are available for them to join and existing players do not know what guilds they can recommend.

    As a result, new players will probably get invited by a random guild which they will eventually leave when they realize there’s a mismatch between the kind of guild they are looking for and the guild they are in.


    So I am inspired to create this forum post and I hope various guilds can join in this thread to help new players in their maple journey.

    It would help if you can endorse your guild too.
    The aim of the endorsements is to help existing players recommend guilds to new players.

    I guess if I'm ever going to make Prism a thing, it might as well be here lmao.

    Prism was originally just a few of us who met at PQs at the start of COVID in March 2020. As time has gone on, just about everyone has returned to "normal" life, so it'd be nice to add people again.

    I've talked with you before about how I think the community is friendly and nice, but we often leave newer players to survive and die in the wild. I'd like for Prism to be an introductory guild where new players get comfortable with ML, then either find their niche in the server in a larger guild or stay and help Prism grow: their choice. Nobody is obligated to stay, but hopefully it can be a resource for newer players to get a better, more secure foothold in the server in terms of information, meso, etc. When I allianced with the current guilds in Spectrum, it was for similar reasons: now, Elluelians is a pretty thriving guild with lots of well-established members in the community, and I'm glad I could play a small part in getting that process rolling.

    Name of Guild: Prism
    Primary Timezone: I have bad hours, but I'm technically GMT-5. But I play EU (GMT+2) and SG/MY (GMT+8) friendly hours thanks to my notoriously awful sleep schedule.
    Guild Size: I don't use meso to invest in characters, so this can be as large as it needs to be. I can expand as necessary.
    Alliance: Spectrum (Elluelians)
    Contact: DM me on forums is probably the best way to reach me. I afk a lot in-game, so reaching me can be difficult when I'm either sleeping or away at work/school.
    Endorsements: Beginner-friendly, Will try to do events such as GPQ/Bossing when possible.

    Primary Timezone: I personally am all over the map. I am American and US east timezone but with my weird sleeping habits I have been known to have alot of Singapore,Australian and European members because of the bad sleeps so we really do not discriminate when it comes to timezones although it can make planning a little difficult.

    Alliance: GreenChat (Other guilds are mainly for storage and muling and Active is main guild)
    Contact: DM me on forums or you can ask for my discord # on forums and we can keep in touch that way :))
    Headquarters: Ch 7 Room 19
    Bossing Times : We might do a few random runs during the week on weaker bosses, but Saturday is usually our big planning day for what we decide to do with bossing in our discord :)

    That FM guild HQ forum thread is super old. I would guess that less than half of those are still correct.

    That depends if you play mostly during the day or during the evening.

    If you play during the morning, SEA is going to be online during your time (as it is later there). However, during your evening, they will not be online.
    If you play in the evening, the NA folks will be online. They won't be online during your mornings, however (except some turbo degenerates that stay up all night)
