Historically, unions were set up to give members collective bargaining rights over regulations on a particular ‘trade’- regulations usually put in place by government. In contrast, guilds were a form of collective action- the members set the rules for the guild. However, in a true guild, someone working in a particular occupation was ‘encouraged’ to join the guild, often using methods that would require PVP to be turned on.
Regulation by government inhibits free trade, though it is still a ‘nuclear option’ if things get out of hand. PVP is just a bad idea on an economy server, unless you wish to have a police force, which would require taxation,a legal system, government salaries, et al…it just makes everything more complicated.
Right now, I see three positions: the two you me tioned, plus the Chairperson position (apologies to the ladies for the use of “Chairman” earlier(editing soon…))This is an equal opportunity server.
BUT, the Board will have the authority to create and fill new positions as neccessary.
