I'm not usually a fanboi (girl?), but I agree with everything Scott said, especially about throwing up a post on the forums. Every long-standing guild has THOSE THREADS. You know the ones: they're 15 pages long and everyone has an opinion (our Lich King strat thread made it to 18 pages before we killed him, I think). If you can steer those types of threads in a healthy direction (i.e., not letting people get carried away with gripes or emotions), then they sometimes turn out to be the best thing that ever happened. I kind of think of it like wringing out all of the frustration, questions, and negative energy so you can start fresh.As for chat channels, no one here said chat channels are bad. We have LOTS in our guild. One for almost every class and then three collective channels for healing, dps, and tanking. There are things I say in one channel or the other that I might not necessarily say in raid chat, but they are vents: momentary bursts of frustration that I generally forget happened by the time the night's over. Having a chat channel just to complain about your raid leader is a little too specific, though. If you're THAT dissatisfied, you need to confront the leader or start your own guild.To Anonymous Guild Master, though; you sound like you have a good head on your shoulders. I think you're headed in the right direction. One thing Scott didn't mention, though, is that if the worst happens (someone or a few people leave), don't blame yourself. There are times when someone just doesn't fit the guild they're in, and it's okay for them to find a new one if all they're doing is bringing the rest of the guild down. Good luck to you!
