Consistent leadership is where it's at.Ensure your officers know exactly where the guild is heading and that you're all on the same page. When someone (and someone will) starts making trouble, pushing their own agenda, whining about something, tow the party line. Ergo you treat everyone fairly and consistently with no surprises. Make you rules and expectations known.The people who leave will be guild hoppers and drama queens, rendering attrition a good thing as opposed to a thorn in your side.A few final words... expect and encourage change, don't be so set in your rules that the guild outgrows you. Be prepared to shuffle officer structures and always consider that you yourself may at one point need to step down from your position for the greater good of the guild. Also, get guild infrastructure before it's needed, so if you're small get 10 man vent any way, get a website early and so on, increase vent size before it's needed. When growth hits, you don't want to be so busy producing these bits and pieces that you miss out on actually getting involved with the guild.
