Our guild's site (Ex Cinis Cineris on Farstriders: www.excincin.com) does a pretty brisk business, I'd say about a third of our 150 members use it on a regular basis, most use it at some time or another... only a few holdouts that pretty much never use it. We have something for everyone... Raid signups, RP story contests, class forums where you know you won't get flamed, a Troll's Lair where you know you might. Guild bank requests are done through the site (first to request gets it for a nominal fee of 5 silver/stack or item... not bad for a BoE purple). But then, Ex Cinis Cineris is an adult social guild, maybe that makes a difference, as we've even expanded into virtualized RL with a Facebook group.

We have a live chat feature (we call it guild chat, jr.) on our guild website, which is very popular during the day for those who cannot log into the game from work.

I think it often comes down to numbers, 100% of guild members will almost never use a guild site, much more likely 30% will, then it's just a difference if that's 2 or 50 people.Our guilds website (http://shadowguardians.eu/) is frequented by about 10 out of close to 50 active members, so a fifth. Although many of these are officers, and as such our guildsite has become a quite efficient tool for officer business.We have tried getting more people to use the guildsite with both useful information and a nice social atmosphere, recently we even had a contest for a TCG loot-card (6/50 people signed up) - but I guess some people just aren't the guildsite types.
