I've never been an officer, but I went through all of these steps until I found the one that worked. We had been in our guild for 4 years. I never stopped loving to raid, even entering ICC four nights a week for months, but I did get tired of people. When I figured out I felt this way, and that I was internally (usually) sniping at people, I took a 2 week break.I came back fresh--for about 2 weeks. Then I started to feel the same issues all over again. In the end after much much consideration, my husband and I decided to change guilds for precisely what this column describes: it wasn't the same guild to us anymore. Very few of the people we had started raiding with remained, and the ones who did were burnt out themselves or had been quieted by the new, more boisterous members. There was a last-straw moment which we discussed it with the officers and our friend and GM. When it was clear that our issues weren't going to be addressed, we left; a month later, we joined a new guild.I still consider many of the people in our previous guild friends, and most assuredly good players. It just wasn't home for us anymore. You've already narrowed it down to the primary problem (not feeling like you know your guild members)--that should be the starting point for what you do next. Good luck! :-)
