And I'll also add, if the preservation of power, and title didn't matter, there would be no ranks, no designation, and no one in 'charge'.. as the people would simply all 'do what was required'. Equally, if the intentions you speak were true, you'd be willing to simply hand over your rank, or abolish them entirely. But again, the proof is in 'that a power structure exists' . I currently guild with guys I've been gaming with for well over 5 years now, many even longer. About 10 of them I see in real life at the very least once or twice a week. We've been friends since childhood. The only reason we even have ranks is so people know who to seek out IF one is needed. Otherwise, we are all essentially the same rank, we are all equals, and rank is used less as a structure for power, and more for managing things like the GB, and who gets what from drops. (Yeah we are also loot council) Anyways, it's clear to me that all the 'old ways' and adherence to these old stigmas about volunteers and appointees must be true, because just about every guild I see that maintains such falls apart and is rife with drama and garbage from the natural power struggle created by those who seek power. Afterall, why did you start a guild? To be a peon, or the one in power?
