If he's not satisfied with his guild officers, he has no obligation to them. Even if he's satisfied, he has no obligation. Do not tell this person that he has no right to his own satisfaction because he's not "in charge" of something.Secondly, I don't give a rat's ass about how hard my officers work to make a raid happen, and neither should anyone else - if the results are consistently not what you want, the guild's not right for you and you should either switch guilds or change your guild. CONSISTENT EFFORT does not justify anything - only CONSISTENT RESULTS.By the way, if you're a GM that does all the guild's work outside of playing other people's toons for them, you need to delegate some responsibility or find some better officers. Don't complain about how crappy being a GM is when you are the one who made it crappy. Can't get a hand planning raids? You shouldn't raid. Website devoid of forum chatter? You shouldn't have a forum. Can't get people to show up for events? Have fewer events. Hey, maybe the reason people didn't show up was that they didn't like your style or the event didn't seem seem well-planned.If something is not to your liking, make it to your liking or go find something better. Accepting unhappiness just breeds more unhappiness.

The fact that you say; If he's not satisfied with his guild officers, he has no obligation to them. Shows that you have not read this blog thoroughly, which is probably why your comment is... well, what it is.

Can't agree to most of this, but agree that officers'GLs need to delegate and find a focus for the guild. If the guild is about progression, then do X. If it's about friends and a friendly culture, do Y. Too often I see a guild start as a friendly casual guild, turn into 'we're the most hardcore raiders ever'. I guess it's easy to get carried away. Also when officers burn out, rotate. Either through election or soemething else. Trust me you won't feel like doing 'work' during your play time for very long.
