I've been thinking about things and want to step down as head of the GWS.

I enjoy running charity raffles, but have found that despite my desires to do more stuff with the GWS, I lack the drive and energy to do so.

I'd still like to be a part of it, but I'm hoping that stepping down would get other interested folk more involved, who may be able to do a better job with getting people involved and interested in GWS things and expanding the society.

About the Society

Our mission is to encourage people to be the best versions of themselves, for betterment of self, the community, and the world.


Society Membership

There are two kinds of membership, with two corresponding badges: Golden Wings and Rainbow Scales. If you qualify for both badges, you'll get a combined badge. Details on membership perks and how to earn membership are posted below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of things should I do to earn the Rainbow Scales badge?

Sky's the limit! Things you can do include, but are not limited to: making guides in the Guides subforum, answering newbie questions in Help, assisting in dominance activities, creating and hosting site/flight activities like dominance raffles, holiday festivities, donating (especially donating things that take personal time and effort such as art) to flight/community raffles. We like to see a mix of long-term and short-term participation in things, and we especially like to see hosting and helping with large projects.


Does sending money toward specific events/places (disaster relief, etc.) count as well, or does it need to be a more general charity?

When it comes to charity, it's the thought that counts! Yes, specific events and places will count as charities if the cause is a noble one and the charity a legitimate one.


I want to donate FR money/items to the GWS to help fund the charity raffles, who should I send things to?
@Emordnilap is the society treasurer, please send anything you want to donate to them!
