I think a common problem of guilds is to overdo the whole officer/class lead thing. Delegating labor in order to make the guild run smoothly, but it is way too easy for it to become a matter of status.In my opinion, anyone seeking officer status is a bad candidate. What you look for is the people that are already doing the job (without the title), and maybe make it official (assuming you need to to better utilize guild banks and guild invites).Status positions in guilds just invite drama. Promote the minimum amount of people needed to make the guild run smoothly, and treat EVERYONE in the guild well. The guild I have been in for years has a GM, 2 players (1 of which is me) who are "officers" insofar as we can juggle the bank, and handle guild invites (we don't set or enforce policy, or speak for the guild- we're just ordinary members with a few more chores). We also have 3-4 members that will be appointed to lead a raid every now and then. It's very minimal delegation, and it REALLY smoothes things over. Of course, it is critical that you have a really fair GM for that to work, but we do.
