Apparently there is an FAQ regarding consolidation- a forced merge as opposed to voluntary transfers- and unlike transfers guilds remain intact. Just in case any other guildmasters weren't aware information can be found here. http://www.swtor.com/support/helpcenter/6446 - To us this seems a far more preferable option than losing all of our stuff. Just in case everything is out of the guild bank but if there's a chance to keep our old members who wanted us to hold their spots when they were on holidays etc then we'll be taking this opportunity...even if we're the only ones left on Dalborra!

I know a lot of people will probably say these FAQs about consolidation may not be true but thanks to Bioware's 'diligence and fantastic customer service' () this is the best we've got. Just in case any other Guildmasters wanted to know.
There is only Power, and those too weak to seek it.

I've said this on many occasions. Seem to be an awful lot of people trying to speak on behalf of everyone else. I know very few people in our guild who actually want to be forced to merge with other server types. Not real keen on moving servers of any type but better than playing on a server where you can play all evening and not get a group finder pop.

In the last update I gave I told all of you that we were expanding where your one-time transfer could go to include all NA-West servers. After seeing quite a few requests to expand it further, we are going to allow you a one-time transfer to any SWTOR server. To reiterate, starting on Tuesday, June 4th, you will be allowed a one-time transfer for each character you have on an APAC server to any other non-APAC server.

Thanks!

That sounds good and all Eric but we would also love the idea to have the ability for a whole guild transfer as well. Sure if we do have a US guild already formed up and ready to go we could jump in and reform it but I think you guys are missing a flexible feature that is important for guild leaders transferring our guild bank and members from one server to another.

I would recommend wavering this and allow us to rebuild our guilds for free with four guild tabs and take it from there. However I know that it might not happen but worth a try on asking instead of leaving people high and dry if we do end up putting the requests in the coming few days just to make it occur.

So it's now June 5th and nothing has been said about transfers. I was hoping to put mine in before bed. Sigh.

Same here, on the character transfer page :
"The character transfer service is currently unavailable."

Eric, when you said Tuesday June 4th for APAC transfers, did it occur to you that the players who are concerned by this actually live in APAC (Meaning at least UTC +8h)....

I get the feeling that this is going to be one of those moments when the poor sub lackey who was in charge of this thing wakes up in the morning with a start thinking "****! Thats what i forgot to do before i left work yesterday......"
