This poster is totally me 6 months ago. I was in a very similar scenario. In the end, my replacement stepped up and did what needed to be done - the guild had some hard times after I left, but they got through it, and they're doing good now, probably better than when I stepped down. The new GM took things in a different direction than I would have, but he's the GM and it's his guild now. The end result was a pretty good mix of old timers and fresh new officers stepping up to the plate.My advice to anyone in this situation is this: sometimes you have to let go. You AND your guild will probably be better off for it. Quitting isn't an easy decision, but you're not doing the guild any favors by leading it when you're not fully engaged. It can really put a damper on the whole mood of the guild if you're not. The guild will survive without you. And if it can't survive without you, it doesn't deserve the amount of effort you're putting into it. One person shouldn't be the only thing holding up an entire guild.
