New Guinness World Record Set!
Back in 2010, The Syndicate became record holder as the the oldest, continuously operating guild in the world. The record didn't end then. We continued to exist as a community; continued to succeed and thus the record continued to grow. In 2011, The Syndicate applied for a new record to be set and in Sept they were awarded that record. The new Guinness World Record entry now reads: "With a documented history stretching back to at least February 1996, The Syndicate (www.LLTS.org) is the longest-running online guild, with 15 years and 8 months of continuous operation as of 15 September 2011."
There is no other community in existence that has operated longer, on a continual basis, than The Syndicate. LLTS!
