What's the learning objective of your guild? Have you seen any guild sites that include a learning objective?

Right now I'm playing with the idea of a peer editing guild. Exciting, right? I'm seeing so much about gaining experience and helping all members level up in the charters I've looked at, I'm wondering if there's a way to build that ethic in to my peer editing groups- both for building a knowledge base and for reviewing tasks performed. I'm considering the number of mentions I've seen of loot too. Loot is important....yay loot. I can totally see building some kind of loot in that they would want to compete for. Like a get out of class 15 min early pass. ;)

Yeah, I am always excited about peer editing . . . my student's really like to do it (not), yet it is one of the best tools we can teach, in the real world they will be working on projects where they definitely be reviewing and editing projects, proposals, etc, that include the work of others. Even college students like to get out of class a few minutes early, or take a day off. I can see how this idea of LOOT would work in a guild. Helping others level up is a great idea.

What other incentives can you see yourself putting into the leveling up system? What can you see as a task that once completed, would help you level up? I can see, maybe peer-reviewing another student's weekly essay, for example. Or doing that peer review AFTER the other student has received a grade and upon re-submission of that essay if the student gets a higher score, they both level up? Something like that?
