You could always do what we did... hold elections :) Almost 2 years ago, we broke off from another guild. The old guild was dedicated to leveling, which was great when we were leveling... but then we had a ton of people at 80 who wanted to raid - and the guild leader "wouldn't let us" - if we tried, he would verbally abuse us in guild chat. So we left and formed a new guild.At any rate, the guild leader was elected in sort of an ad-hoc election by most of the people in the new guild... I say most, because the guy who ended up guild leader was at work at the time, and didn't even know until later that evening.It's worked out great for us, he's been a great leader. And we have a core group of officers that are also great at picking up the slack and taking care of things - One that handles the guild bank (in other words, she throws out all the junk every month or two), two more that lead raids, class leaders, officers that get the group together for fun, ridiculous things (like old world raid achievements). All in all, it's worked out amazingly well. But that probably isn't the norm for a group that starts out so haphazardly.
