    Applications to dissolve current bonds will now be processed on a rolling basis. The dissolving of a bond is personal and, in most cases, involves the ending of a real relationship and no one should have to stay in a relationship that has come to a natural conclusion.

    We will no longer announce the dissolution of a bond. The Membership Admins for the affected groups will be notified that the members have been removed from their groups. Since bonds are personal, we feel the ending of a relationship is not something to "celebrate" or make into a public spectacle.

    Reasons for dissolving a bond will remain the same.

    If you wish to dissolve a bond, one or both members will email a request to the Director of Membership requesting to dissolve the bond and cite your reasons. If only one member requests to dissolve the bond, the Director of Membership will make a reasonable effort to contact the other member of the bond to notify them of the request and gain their approval/feedback. This will take no longer than 2 weeks. Once a decision is made, both parties, the Membership Admins, and the Tower Historian will be notified.
