This is definitely one of the best officers' quarters I've read. I've been an officer in a progression raiding guild for over a year now, and ever since becoming one I've made sure to at least skim the articles here, even if they were regarding issues that didn't necessarily pertain to my guild. This article however, really struck a chord with me because the issue explained here has been the single greatest threat to the life of my guild, and only through a lot of hard work, and more than a little luck, were certain flare-ups of this issue prevented from annihilating us, and even then we had a long period of recovery at one point.From my own experience I can say this: no matter how brilliant of a leader you are, you will always need a good team of people to support and work with you, and they have to be people willing to step up on their own. The officers of a guild can't be the arms, legs, and body of which the guild master is the head that, in the end, controls everything. The officer corps has to be a solid team that works together, and the guild master is simply the captain of that team. It takes huge luck to find people who are willing and able to make it all work (especially in the long-term), and even then there will be hard times. I think it's a gargantuan achievement to have lead a guild for over five years before it finally died. I don't think I'd be able to do even close to that, but hopefully with these articles, I'll be able to keep things going a bit longer than they otherwise would.Much thanks.
