Character Transfer, Server Populations and You
Please have a thorough read through this initial Character Transfer service that is incoming to SWTOR to help consolidate the playerbase and improve the gameplay experience in general, ready for 1.3.
As of today (11th June) we don't yet know what the origin
server options, so we are not even sure if Trask Ulgo is a server that can be departed from or if it is a destination server.
If Trask is an origin server that can be departed from, I would like DOT to carefully consider before we move, to avoid knee-jerk decisions, and it would require some co-ordination.
The transfer is completely manual and on a per character basis, i.e. no auto guild transfer. Basically, we would have to empty out the Guild Bank of items and credit, disband DOT (edit: and Dot-e too) and once characters are transfered to have DOT/Dot-e re-created from scratch on the new server (if we can get the name), and then contact CS to have the guild bank reinstated for us to deposit items/credits again
I put it out to the guild: If
Trask is an origin server and The Proginator is a destination, would DOT be up for a transfer?
Comments, opinions, suggestions welcome...
Edit: Plan of action compiled by Gamina
---------- Transfer Guild
Guild must be recreated on new server. All members must be reinvited and given rank member note and so on.
I think 4 people are needed to do this. So El might have to coordinate on the forum to make sure there will be enough online to make a guild, or contact costumer service and ask for help in this.
I suggest creating a temp rank with invite rights and give it to most members initially to make sure as many DOTs as possible will have a chance to get an invite. Then go back to normal after some time. Transfer of Guild bank
Empty all items and money out of the bank and on to characters that will transfer.
Then complete the transfer.
Recreate the guild.
Contact costumer service to get guild bank back.
Set guild bank settings as before and deposit items and money taken from old bank. Transfer character
Go to http://www.swtor.com/transfer to transfer your characters.
I also suggest posting something like the following on the forum:
DOT is moving to 'server X'. The guild will not be automaticly transfered and we will have to reform on 'server X'.
Official info on server transfer: www.swtor.com/transfer Step 1: Make sure you have no items listed on the GTN. Listings will not be transfered with you.
Step 2: Empty mailbox of all credit and items. Your mailbox will be emptied of everything on transfer.
Step 3: Log in to your account on swtor website to transfer your characters.
Step 4: Wait for transfer to complete.
Step 5: Log in on new server and type /cjoin dot or do a Who search on DOT /who DOT (edit)
Step 6: Speak up in the created channel /dot or send a /whisper to an online member to get an invite. (edit)
Step 7: Right click your name on the guild list to set your member note to display your Forum name. You can also add optional info such as crew skills and tank/heal/dps-role
Step 8: If you had to change any of your characters name, please update the member list on the website with the new name(s)
If you know you will be on at a certain time and need an invite, try asking on the forum in advance to see if someone can make sure they will be there to invite.

Edit (14/6) As CS seem to be ignoring my request to be able to retain the old DOT on Trask just minus the vault, I have had to disband the original guild. However, a in game message to inform of the move to The Proginator has been sent to all members that were still there (mains / most recent logged toon was contacted).
