Out of commitment to my guild, I did the same thing as the writer of the e-mail above...wrote a new constitution, completely restructured the leadership, devised new policies...all in order to move the guild into a position to progress in raiding. This is a casual raiding guild, and we were losing members left and right because of stagnation. Difference is, i DID get the promotion...to effectively third-in-command (a member of a triumvirate that ran everything and oversaw GM activities). I HATE this position! It's all the responsibility I was taking on before, nothing major there. I did not realize the amount of crap officers sometimes take though. I asked for a demotion to a non-Ochat level position, like class leader at highest, to get out of it. This was not the first time I was guild leadership in general, but it was for this particular guild. If you've come back after hiatus to a new guild, be REAL careful about wanting an officer position. Each guild is very different, and those differences are painfully obvious especially near the top of the food chain.To reflect the comments of SurvHunter....it's a double-edged sword that is sometimes sharper on the wrong side depending on the guild!
