Being an officer is a big pain in the keister. If someone's actively seeking the position, one of two things is happening:1) The guild is in disrepair and someone wants to do something about it in an official capacity. This means he/she is looking to overhaul the system somehow. Look for many changes or at least a push for such changes.2) The person is looking for more esteemed position/power. This is the problem officer that will eventually splinter off to lead a competing guild and take every member as possible with him/her.Either way, it's not a good thing when you hear about someone asking to become an officer. The other responses are correct. Look for a member that's already doing the officer job(s) and reward him/her with the official title. And then pity them. The game just became another job.

In regards to senario 1, this is what happened with me. Guild tanking. Poor moral. Annoying, shitty recruits.To fix this, I needed to do what:Be an officer?Or raise awareness of the problem and get people talking about it?I didn't want to be an officer. I just didn't want the guild to be such a downer. Since then, I've had the opportunity to be GM (noooooooo ty) and currently reside at the second or third from the top on the 'Guild Council'.I'd say the best way to be an officer is to just so you care about the guild and the people in it but if you have to ask, then, no, you're probably not the person for the job...
