Being an IT Geek
We are IT geeks. We dispatch entire armies of workers with our mighty shell scripts. Our homes may lack wine racks, but our 42U four-post equipment racks are loaded with second-hand network equipment and servers. We know how to use MediaWiki markup and templates, yet reject all things presentational in favor of semantics. Gratuitous Star Trek reference goes here. We're IT Geeks!
(Note: You do not actually have to be an IT Geek to join us. Most of us aren't.)
Founded in November 2011 by Amun J Farnsworth at the behest of his mighty-good-looking/not-at-all-nerdy hero Tutankhamun J Fry. Once an active member of the guild, he left to pursue his other adventures across the world of Godville. He has since fallen into the endless void of presence with no progress. Also known as uninstallation.
Where are we now?
Now, under the leadership of the great Mad dragon, the IT Geeks are a friendly guild of 30 members. Often managing to gain moderate positions in all of the Pantheons, our strongest point is our unity, often reaching up to the top 20, and over half our members have Temples constructed for our various Gods and Goddesses. The Guild Council is active, mostly full of posts boasting about who has done the most for the Guild, but if you join you will find yourself surrounded by helpful people who can guide you through the confusing place of Godville.
How to join
So you wish to join? Good choice! There are several easy steps which will ensure you get a place in our guild. Follow these, and you will find yourself amongst our ranks.
Once you have joined you will quickly start to rise through the ranks. Starting as a fan, you will rise to intern and then recruit. And so on and so on. Once you have been in the guild for 800 days, you will become a 'root', one of the highest achievements of our guild. Only 11 of our 31 members have achieved this, just over a third. Though you won't be able to post in the council at first, after a couple of days you will be able to join in with our conversations.
If you ever find your hero embarking on a quest to leave the guild (a random event), you will of course want to cancel immediately. Simply write "Cancel Quest". After several tries, you will find that your hero suddenly gives up, and chooses to find something better to do. The longer you are in the guild the less likely you are to leave. However, it is important to note that if you neglect your hero, not checking up on them for a month, they will be forced to leave the guild by the weight of their own sadness. Moral? Look after your hero.

Our Current Leader
Our current leader is the great Mad dragon. A benevolent leader, she was even willing to forgo her place in the elections for another candidate. Hail, wise leader.
We have managed, after many trials, to befriend the Task Manager. It now stands with us as our Guild Monster, organising our tasks and promoting overtime work. If not for our monster, we would all be lazy and never get anything done. Therefore, we thank you, Task Manager.
