Little is known of this meeting. However, the decision to set formal age minimums for the different levels of membership was made, and it was decided to require that any member wishing to attend an official event or be raised to Senior Member, must have a voice conversation with their membership administrator. Guilds were also introduced.
The status of Junior Members was clarified to an extent and Accepted and Soldiers were required to guest in two community groups forums until at least 12 weeks of being at that level, at which time they were allowed to aspire to that group and were allowed to just stay with them.
