They will, when they get to the guild name report - which also begs the question - why did you submit a ticket too when right click - report guild name is the better way?
The ticket is just pointless and honestly not needed - just a waste of resource and adding to the ticket queue. They get more information from right click - guild name report than anything else (as a data snapshot is created).
The thread? Possible but unlikely. The guild? Most certainly will not be deleted. I don’t know how many times you need this explained, but the most likely outcome is a guild name change and a warning to the guild leader. The most severe outcome would be a guild name change and a suspension, depending on the guild leader’s past history of poor choices in-game.
We do not allow what is considered “naming and shaming” and any such threads are likely to be edited or deleted. No investigations will be initiated as the result of a forum post and could result in the temporary loss of forum posting privileges.
Right-click>Report is the proper way to report this. Thank you for using it first. The time-frame it takes to get to the report can seem long. The group that handles those reports takes reports from around 240 retail realms, plus the Classic, and TBC Classic realms. They generally address them in the order they are received. The more players (not characters) that report it, the faster it will be addressed as it shows Blizzard that it impacts more players.
The name you showed would be addressed even if you are the only player reporting it. It really is inappropriate. It will not be addressed faster because you posted on the forums about it. It will not be addressed faster because you made a ticket about it. Your report is important, but so are the reports from other players.
Just to point it out, Game masters don’t really react to tickets to take actions against folks in game that way - mainly via right-click > report. More to the point, putting in a ticket for a report won’t force the action come faster. If everyone did such, the ticket times will skyrocket.
I’m going to lock this topic since I believe all of the necessary information has been conveyed. I’ll summarize in this post for anyone that finds this thread through a search:
I’ve removed the name of the guild from the original post. As others have already pointed out, we don’t allow that on the forums and if you feel a name is inappropriate for the game then it’s likely also inappropriate for the forums.
While I can appreciate that you have a strong desire to bring attention to this matter, the forums are not an avenue for reporting inappropriate in-game behavior/content. Please make sure you are using the in-game reporting tools to flag the inappropriate content. The in-game systems allow our teams to track trends in player behavior, repeat offenses, and other helpful moderation metrics.
