8.7.2 Guild probation
Guild probation is a tool used by the leadership of a guild to punish a member without having to kick him or her out. If a guild member is on guild probation, he or she will be able to write on the guild news, but not read it. In some guilds, you will be put on probation when being admitted to the guild, in order that they may watch you and ensure that your behavior is appropriate for that guild.
