As someone who has run a guild for 18 months now, and gone from small to (arguably) medium in that time, the only thing I can say is 'quality matters'.Officers don't have the time to hold the hand of every pampered teen out there and shouldn't try. You'll miss the point. Be patient, recruit hard and watch as many flow out of the guild as those who flow in. But along the way, you will find quality people who will stick.I know you're an academic (I read these forums) so you'll hopefully understand me when I say all guilds regress towards the mean. That is, we all grow and we all constrict. It's easy to get excited during times of growth and down during times of contraction, patience and good long term members is the key to survival and permanent growth... and for us, has lead to easy 10 man raiding and 25 mans with half pugs. There's more nuance to it than that but on a blog reply... that's the essence of it.
