Apr 3rd 2012 2:07PM "How do you get the guild to trust you to become an officer?"
1) Live up to your normal-member obligations well. Show up for things on time or early, with all the preparation you need.
2) Present yourself as a rational and responsible person, preferably more so even than would usually be expected. For instance, in progression raiding, it's normal to be and act frustrated when things don't go well. If you can restrain that, it speaks well of you as potential officer material.
3) Start volunteering to help. Ideally do so in very concrete terms. Does your guild use particular supplies (feasts, cauldrons, etc) for raids or pvp? Offer to make them, or ask the person who usually makes them if they need anything to make them. Is your guild recruiting? Offer to write a little advert for the forums or WoW Insider and submit it to the recruiting guy. This is particularly effective if there's a gap in the leadership roles- if there is no one who makes feasts or does recruitment. If all the necessary tasks are covered, you'll probably have to wait for that to change.
4) FOLLOW THROUGH on 3. That is key. I'm an officer- if someone offered to help, I gave them a task, and they failed to do it, I'd likely never give them a task again. Demonstrated lack of reliability is hugely detrimental.
