We do things a bit differently. We run a very democratic guild where officers are elected.However, we also have a very fair promotion system.We have 9 ranks, with the Top 3 ranks reserved for The GM, Sr. Officers (Senators) and Jr. Officers (Tribunes). Senators are elected, but anyone can rise through the ranks and become a Tribune. Senators have a full vote in all Council matters and Tribunes have a 1/2 vote. That ensures that the elected officers are kept in check by our seasoned players.Each rank is gained by accruing DKP, and you earn DKP by attending instances and donating to the guild bank. We avoid nepotism like the plague. If you've accrued enough historical DKP to earn a promotion, you're promoted. Only the GM has the ability to kick members, and no member can be kicked (with the exception of initiates) without an officer vote.Don't get me wrong, we've had a few struggles in the past, however, we've got about 170 active players and are the only guild I know of that's able to fund mounts for players as they rise through the ranks.

Geh, this is why I left a larger guild, too much red tape and rules. I'm in a guild in that has a new recruit about once every 4-6 months and everyone in the guild has full invite/bank privs usually within 2-3 months of that. However we are very selective about who we let in cause if we don't like ya, fo'get aboud it. We have an active roster of about 30 people with alts out the wazoo :) But we love each other like family (and in fact have attended each others weddings and at times funerals).I would never give that up to go back to this kind of hard core structure.
