Easily one of the best OC. Its interesting how Scott took throwing a couple people together to do raids in an online game to veritible leader and expert on online social community leadership, and even has a book about it. Me, i guess i've been lucky. I have a good friend who I run a social/casual guild with, and we've toyed with raidingn alot over BC/wrath, but never got that serious into it. I almost destroyed the guild several times when i essentially fired raid leaders and didn't replace them. Lots of lessons learned for me over the past two years, the most important is that its very natural for interest to wax and wane, both for yourself and for the community. In the end days of wrath very few were interested in raiding or doing much of anything (understandable of course), but now its like the Nile has started to flow; but we know the drought is just around the corner. That's how it is with guilds. The good times are good, and the bad times are mostly reminescing about good times. Oh the other thing we do is rotate leadership positions. Now we have a really stable officer corps and one of the 'officer's is the GL now, and i don't think myself or the other founder want the title back. There are alot of people pitching in and that is really the key.

I do agree. He writes some excellent articles. Even if they don't necessarily pertain to my guild all the time, they're very informative and helpful regardless. Honestly wish I could get his book! Soon :D
