Very good article Scott.You make a very good point when you say you need to ask yourself if you can "handle that?"I was an officer in a guild with over 250 members we transformed from causual raiding to full-blown hardcore raiding guild and on the way to that point I was promoted to officer. The only requirement for me was to setup achivement runs for everyone in guild, the main point of this was to see how new recruits handled themselves, not just in a dungeon or raid but on Vent and to setup some "fun" events other than raiding.It sounded easy enough when I accepted the position but after a year I finally asked for a demotion. The reason being I'm in a key management position at work in real-life. I deal with people issues all day then come home and deal with more of them on a "game" that I'm supposed to enjoy. It felt like I never left work.I'm still in the guild and enjoy the "Raider" status. Toward the end of wrath we started to fall apart and threw the shattering and 80-85 leveling to current day our roster numbers fluctuate alot. We have have for the moment migrated back toward being casual.I still help some but don't want the full-time job. I take raid lead once in a while because I know the stress the only two guild/raid leaders we have left are feeling. The only real perk for us was a spot in a raid (as long as we were not dragging the group down) and access to the last guild bank tab with all the goodies.
