In my first real guild, I was always "Odd Jobs Waft". I would do the weird jobs in raids that others normally wouldn't. Jobs like off-tanking constructs for Ignis in Ulduar (dragging them through fire that he would set on the floor long enough for them to turn cherry-pink and then proceeding to put them in the water so they could be shattered) were regular and frequent.Later when I became Moonkin sometime around ToC's inception, and odd jobs changed to "Orb Janitor". Whether it be the light or dark orbs in the Twins encounter, or the frozen orbs in the Anub encounter, or later still in ICC the collapsing star-orbs in the Blood Prince encounter in ICC, I was always handling some sort of orb (the females were of course, ruthless with the sexual innuendos that were of course natural for such a title, much to the amusement of my fellow guildies and myself).In my second guild, I became the Lore Junkie. It was a PvP guild, so most of the members didn't really care to know much about the lore, if anything. Our resident guild leader loved hearing stories such as Arthas' rise to power while doing RBGs, yet he absolutely forbade himself from reading quest text. "I don't want to read, I want to kill!"As for my current guild, I'm more or less the middle-man. I haven't yet been around long enough to be considered part of any internal social-group (under a month). I'll be approached by guildies regarding internal guild conflict (explaining to me 'their part of the story and why so-and-so is evil'), and the more I hear from both sides, the more I feel they're both using me as a medium to judge who is right and who is wrong (and to add another warm body to their group to give them more numbers, as if the issue would ever come up to a vote). It's not exactly a place I'm really happy with, but I get a small bit of comfort from being able to reassure both parties by lending a neutral ear where they otherwise wouldn't really have one. It's a weird place to be in. I prefer myself to the ball-handler position, honestly.
