This sounds like myself over a year ago. I opened up my small three-person guild to folks looking to house an alt and/or check out the server. The idea was to have a place to chit chat and have fun. I ran the guild solo for the first three or four months, since membership was low. Activity picked up and I can't be online all the time, so I promoted two of the most active members to be officers. This worked out fantastically, and in January I had the need to promote two more folks to officer (who didn't end up working out). The most important thing I've learned is that you can't do everything. You'll want to try, if you want the guild to be a success. Trust me, speaking from experience, you can't do it all. And you shouldn't! Being a guild leader can be stressful at times, and if you are trying to balance everything on your plate...it just won't work. Don't be afraid to rely on other folks who are interested in having a fun and successful guild.I have to say that guild leadership has been the most rewarding thing I've ever done in wow, and is the reason I am still playing. I love my guild - they are amazingly fun, diverse, friendly, and a little kooky. Congrats on taking the plunge, and I hope your guild turns out o be just as amazing as mine is. /salute!

Gah, wtb edit button much.I meant to add that I have four officers now, even though two didn't work out, I found two other folks who were willing and excited to help out. My officers keep me sane, and I keep them sane. We don't have many problems in our guild, but when you do hit a rough spot, you'll appreciate your officers all the more.
