Welcome to the home of the Wreck List, the guild for liberal and progressive bloggers and their family and friends! Moodyloner founded the Wreck List to be a sanctuary from the bigotry and the threatening racist, homophobic, and misogynist language and ideas that we have had to endure while playing until now.
While guild chat is mostly non-political, it is also where we express our leftist political views, which sometimes may include a sharp word or two about republicans. Because some guild members did not come to the Wreck List through political blogs, we do not expect everyone to hold progressive views on all issues; however, we do expect that all members respect the liberal foundation of the guild. This guild is a haven for us and not a forum for debating the views espoused by Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump or other provocative figures on the right. To that end, we do not tolerate promotion of right wing candidates or points of view in guild chat, whispers, or in vent. If you are a supporter of such candidates or a supporter of the Tea Party or their views, then the Wreck List isn't the guild for you, nor is it the guild for friends and family who are interested in such things.
We believe that every person, young or old, deserves respect. Every member is important regardless of his or her particular skills, interests, or experience within the game. Trust and responsibility in the Wreck List are earned exclusively through participation in the guild and support of fellow guild members. Gear scores, DPS, raiding experience, titles, achievements, and other character accomplishments confer no additional status.
Who We Are
We range in age from kids as young as eight to retired folks. The median age is around 40. We are women, men, transgender, gay, straight, single, and married. (Mama and Papa, however, are just good friends - people do ask.) We are from New York City to Los Angeles, from Seattle to Florida, from Canada to Arizona. We are professors, plumbers, political activists, Marines, engineers, students, and stay-at-home moms, dads, and grandparents. We are socialists, Democrats, independents, decline-to-state. A few of us are even sensible conservatives. We are hunters, gardeners, peace activists, soldiers, athletes, scientists, artists, musicians, atheists, ministers, mystics and comedians. Mostly, we are friends.
Our guild leader is Wreklistmama. We all just call her Mama. She can be reached at mgrayrose at gmail dot com if you have questions or are interested in more information about our guild.
We have a Council of Elders who advise Mama and a Council of Heroes who assist the guild by organizing raids, managing the guild vaults, moderating the forums, updating our Facebook site and more. We honor members who go above and beyond in their contributions to the guild with a special rank of Guild Champion. The Champions are nominated by their fellow guild members and have special responsibilities. All leadership members are committed to treating their fellow guild members with courtesy, respect and dignity.
