On a semi-regular basis, an old guild member will email me, saying he she is back to playing a game and would like to return to our guild.  The hassle is that they have to reapply to the guild in order for me to grant them access again.

I am asking for a quick and easy way to add a former member back to our guild without them having to reapply.  Perhaps you could add a command to the Members section of the control panel?

Thanks!

The idea we have been playing this is adding a code/password that new/returning members could type in that would automatically give them access.   Would that work?  

Its not done yet -- but that is the idea

I wish I could say yes but, honestly, that sounds more complicated.  We'd have to change the password regularly and it would add an unneeded step.  The member would have to contact me, then I'd have to send them the password, then they'd have to go enter it somewhere.

As it stand, the returning member emails me and says "hey, I'm back".  At that point, I want to be able to go to Control Panel > Member Management > Profile Tracking, click on their profile and just re-add them to the guild.  They contact me once and I take care of it.

Another former member asked to be reinstated today and I had to tell them to go back to the web site and reapply.  I'm still hoping for a simple way for me to return them to member status without them having to do anything but ask for it.

Hi Valdaglerion, the system is just not set up that way.   Once they are no longer a member of the site they leave the member list.  The only way to re-join a site is to re-apply.
