Good article.I started a guild 4 years ago and it's still running today. We have kept our theme as "Casual Raiding Guild" throughout and we have a core set of members that have been with us 3+ years. I am no longer the GM, but still an officer. I changed jobs and had to step down since i was traveling alot during TBC years. Some thoughts to add that have worked for us.1. Make sure the people you recruit share your guilds ideal of the game. (don't recruit a PvP maniac if you are a raiding guild). No problems with the player there, they just won't fit in.2. Get some competent officers and raid leaders to help you. People you trust to squelch the drama when you aren't online and who have the authority to deal with it. (You can't be online 100% of the time and additionally, you dont' want to spend your whole WoW life dealing with drama yourself)3. And last, if someone is the center of drama more than once in a week, /gkick them. It may seem harsh, but you'll be happy you did. You don't have time as GM to deal with problems continually. Spend your time raiding/BGing or whatever. Not listening to QQs. Better now than when you've spent months getting them epic only to have them /gquit on you.
