Much as it's hard to do, you don't have to feel guilty if the guild 'falls apart' or just stops raiding if you step down or quit. A guild is GROUP that requires GROUP EFFORT to meet goals. If they don't want to make the time, then they simply don't, and forcing the issue is just going to cause stress and heartache. If you take all the steps suggested above and things still don't change, it's not your fault, it's something they've decided to do despite claims otherwise.As the officer of a small, casual, RP guild, I've felt this a lot. There are a lot of alts making up the roster; we haven't nearly enough to field raids, and even getting 5mans together can be difficult. Sometimes our guild leader goes on about how he doesn't know how to play the game, doesn't want to learn, yet is bored and has no characters to effectively social RP. Talk about a downer when trying to get the guild to do things! In the end, I can't force the issue. I keep some characters there for RP stuff, and raid elsewhere (with some of the same characters, since there's a guild partnership going), and try to stop stressing over how others want to play the game differently, but are in the same guild we've been trying to build up.(I'm actually really close to leaving all but 1 or 2 RP alts in there and going full time to the raid/RP/casual fun guild, but we'll see).
