i log onto alts only to be instantly invited to the same guild
as soon as i made a new lvl 1 i got a whisper and instant invite
is this kind of behaviour actually allowed?

Leave the guild invite notice up on the screen, go into options and turn it on then decline the invite. You won't get anymore beyond that first one.

It's not against the rules to invite people to join a guild, even if they're a level one alt

However should you find that the invites happen literally the moment you log in, are always from the same guild/player and you suspect they're using a bot or similar to automate the process then you can always open a ticket and report your concerns to a GM

Think it's likely an auto-invite addon, I know they exist.

Good evening *ahem*

It sounds like the guild in question may be using an add-on of some kind in order to send out regular invitations to newly created characters, which isn’t in and of itself prohibited (although severe or excessive guild invitations or recruitment promotion can still be considered spam, so if the situation really warrants it then you could consider making a report in case we’re able to investigate things further, as Ellifara suggests).

I would, however, recommend you go along with Naancy’s suggestion of using the built-in option to ‘Block Guild Invites’ as soon as you enter the world, so that even if the first attempt slips through you hopefully won’t be further disturbed afterwards. :)
