6/6/15: To be updated with news soon!

updates

There will be a member sweep at the end of June for all inactive members for whom we have no information about a hiatus from. So please, if you are still around, let us know!

Beginning in July, everyone will receive emails about the banners they wanted for their userlookup and meet us page, and older members in the guild will be asked to resubmit a meet us bio (since some of these bios haven't been updated in a couple of years). This way, information about our current members is updated :).

E3 is coming up this month from June 16th to 18th! We are considering having a watch party and discussing what is to be showcased, so let us know if you have any ideas!

From July to August we will have some summer events up! So keep a lookout for those.

new members

We are super excited that you decided to become a part of our lovely family! We are always looking to meet new people, and every effort will be made to make you feel comfortable and welcomed in our home. Below are a few recommended steps that you should take upon joining us.
1) Please read over the rules and ranks, as well as glance over the other pages so that you know what's going on.
2) Introduce yourself on our guild board! This one is important! We want to meet you!
3) Fill out the form on the Meet the Members page so that you can be included and everyone can get to know you better.
4) Enable guild mailings please. Important information will be sent, and we wouldn't want you to miss out on something.
5) Add your birthday to our calendar. We plan to recognize birthdays for members, so this is extremely important if you want to be included.
6) Relax. You've found a good guild and you are no longer guildless!

























rules

Everyone loves rules, right?! Below is a list of guidelines that exist in order for everyone in the guild to have a great experience. Following them would make the Council's job much easier!
1) We are a semi-literate guild. Please make each post a sentence in length, and please refrain from using most chatspeak. The common ones are allowed, such as lol, brb, etc., and smileys are allowed.
2) Please no spamming. Keep our boards clean. We don't really have a limit of posts in a row, but try not to make more than 3! We will automatically delete one of the unintentional double-posts.
3) No heated arguments. Debate over which anime is better is okay, but insulting/arguing with another member is not allowed. If you have something that you would like to address with a member, please neomail that member or neomail one of the council members. We are trying to keep a friendly atmosphere in the guild.
4) Please be active. By this, you will need to post at least once a week and check in with us, and if you are a new member, you must have 25 posts within the first month of joining us!

Please check the Hiatus page if you need to go on leave for a bit. Otherwise, if you haven't posted in 2 months, you will be removed. Even if you are removed, this is an open guild and you are more than welcome to rejoin when you have more free time!
5) Abide by TNT's rules please. Do not discuss things that are not allowed by TNT on the boards and basically do not break their rules. We would all love to chat with you without you being silenced.
6) Most of all, have fun! This guild exists to build relationships amongst people and enjoy each other's company.
If you are found breaking any of these rules, you will be warned in a neomail. Failure to comply after the warning will result in deletion from the guild. Rules are subject to change without notification!

























ranks

Here you will find a description of each rank, as well as the requirements necessary to attain each rank.

Going on Hiatus?



Below is a hiatus form for members who need to take a break from the guild due to vacationing or school studies or just because real life is busy. Once this form is filled out and submitted, you will be added to this page, which will keep you from being deleted from the guild and allow other members to see who is gone and who's around.

Please fill the form out below and send it to Chouzetsu Staff. You will be required to list an approximate time you will be back in the guild. If you aren't back within a month of the time you gave us, you don't neomail us saying you will be gone longer, or you don't give us a date you'll be back and you aren't back within 3 months, you are subject to member sweep rules!

Neomail Chouzetsu Staff when you return so you can be removed from this page!


Members Currently on Hiatus































apply for council



Our council members are to be part of an elite group that runs and takes care of specific jobs around the guild. They will be your go-to person regarding specific tasks and they will help keep our guild running smoothly.

You must be aware that being a council member takes great commitment, and as such you should be an active member of the guild, posting and chatting at least 4 days each week. If I notice that you start to disappear on us, I will send you a warning. After the warning, you will be removed from the council. So please be committed!

In order to achieve council, you must first have a minimum post count of 100. If you are on regularly, this shouldn't be super difficult to achieve. And in the meantime you'll be able to show your dedication.

The second, and probably the most important, is you must be a communicator!! If something does come up or for some reason you can not be on for a specific amount of time, please let me know!! You will be running certain jobs, so in the event that you are unable to because, for whatever reason, you won't be on, I need to know so that I can take over whatever it is that you or doing or get someone else to do it. We aren't replacing you, but we don't expect you to take too long of a hiatus (1-2 months max). If you think you will be gone for so long that you cannot perform your tasks, we expect you to step down on your own accord so that someone else may take on those responsibilities.

Please fill out the form below and neomail to chouzetsuaccount

advertise us

We are looking forward to seeing the guild grow and be successful. New members are always exciting because we get to meet and know new people and enjoy each other's company in a warm environment. In order for that to happen, we have to make ourselves known! Below are some tips for advertising and topics to use on the guild boards, as well as a premade ad.

Keep In Mind

1) When advertising on other boards, respect the person that is looking for a guild. If they say specifically "No Anime" or "I only want NR," just go on your way. If there's more grey area and they say they will look at all guilds, then feel free to advertise. When they aren't giving any specific requirements at all, ask them what they are looking for or if they might be interested in the themes of our guild. Saves you and them time. Also, checking out their userlookup or looking at their "About Me" pages can often times give you a better idea if they may be interested in our guild or not, and can make things easier when trying to chit chat.

2) Stick around! Many times the person will have questions, so it would be useful for you to be there when they ask them. Also, chatting with them earns you bonus points. In addition, you get to know them better when y'all are chatting and in the end, if they choose not to join, you've met someone new.

3) Be unique with the ads. We do have premades, but we strongly encourage you to create your own! If you are new or just are not sure what to say, stick with our name and our theme, let them know our size, that we are semi-literate and chat-based, whether we are private or public, and leave them with a link to the guild and the website. If they ask questions that you do not know how to answer, let them know that they can neomail the council members.

4) Aid them as much as possible. Answering their questions is important! Also, in the event that they say no to our guild, but they are looking for a theme related to our guild, offer them suggestions. There are usually a couple of Anime-guild boards around. So provide them with some links if you can. Make their hunting easy for them! Otherwise, wish them luck on their search and be on your way!

leaving us?

This is probably the saddest page that will ever be seen in this guild! This is the page for those members who have ultimately decided that our home was not the right place for them. Below are a few things that would be beneficial to both you and us. Of course, this is all optional.

Feedback



We would really appreciate any honest thoughts about the guild. Upon leaving, please neomail chouzetsuaccount with your reason(s) for leaving us. You will definitely not be argued with nor will anything be explained; you will simply get a "Thanks and good luck!" in reply. We want to make sure that this guild caters to the members the best way possible, and so your thoughts would really help us out and be greatly appreciated.

Guilds



If you would like me to help you find another guild, I would be more than happy to. Again, just neomail chouzetsuaccount.

Goodbye!



Have a great time! We enjoyed getting to know you as a member! Feel free to add people! We'd love to hear from you again!





























Auctions



Looking for some cool items? Here's the place to stop! These are Chouzetsu's 1np auctions! Here and there they will be little things that you can use or sell for great neopoints, and every once in a while we may have something big! In order to be eligible for the 1np auctions, you must have posted at least 25 times in the guild. This is to reduce anyone just joining for the auctions. Once you have reached this number, you may friend the guild account, chouzetsuaccount. Check on this page to see what auctions are available, then proceed to the trades page to bid on items!

If you would like to donate items to be auctioned up, please send chouzetsuaccount a neomail with the title Auction and send items to the account!

Items Up for Auction





























Adoption Agency



Welcome to Chouzetsu's Adoption agency. Here you will find pets that are up for adoption by members of the guild! In order to adopt pets, you must at least have 25 posts in the guild. This is to reduce people just joining to get good pets. Afterwards, just contact the owner to set up the adoption!

Pet Up for Adoption





























Member of the Month



We seek to honor those members who have aided in making Chouzetsu what it is today, whether that means creating layouts, advertising, helping update pages, submitting articles, or just being a chatterbox and welcoming to other members. The member of the month will be chosen by the council and subcouncil on the last day of each month and will have a little blurb about their contributions to the guild on the guild homepage for a month! They will also receive a nifty banner to add to their userlookup and it will also be placed under their "Awards" section on our "Meet Us." page.


We are Listed




about

Chouzetsu translate to Transcendence in English, and this word describes our guild best because we are an above-average guild. We are an anime, manga, and game guild, and while those are our primary themes, we expand to all things that rest within the realm of Asian multimedia. As a chat-based guild, we seek to become a place where people can escape from the real world to have meaningful chats about anime, video games, neopets, and even real life. We aim to bring people together and create long-lasting friendships between our members.
