This article reminds me of the current guild I 'own'. I've gone from Raid Leader, to co-GM to GM in my time in it. A lot of times I've had trouble with it and recently I've been the only officer. It's a tough job, but once you get that core group and stick to it (RealID helps this), you can keep going. I also value loyalty over performance, which people respect. For example, if you pull 20k DPS but you're constantly missing from raids or not participating in the guild, I won't value you as a member as much as someone who does half as well but it always dependable and willing to come for guild events.Leading a guild is a tough job but it's rewarding. One thing I can suggest: Don't bother with people who leave over stupid crap. If they want to leave, they'll leave. And like the article says, they'll stay if they like how it is. You can't work your guild for others. If you really want members to stay around during your off-times, then actively looking for a raid leader or officer might not be a bad idea.
