leading a guild

Community vs. Community

Players celebrating the Midsummer Festival and dancing around the Midsummer Festival tree

For many of you it's no secret that I'm no longer at peace with being a raider. Yet I am one. My motivation for it is clear: The people in this raid group are members of my guild and for some reason they want me to be part of it. They're good people (ah for God's sake, try not to hear that sentence in Trump's voice) and although the raid group is still one in the making, our evenings can be quite funny. The third source for my motivation is that I really like the raid instances Activision-Blizzard design.

Tomorrow I'll hopefully talk about the Call of the Scarab for a bit. Given the amount of people who didn't give a shit about the event, my voice apparently would contribute to an understanding of the diverse interests at play in World of Warcraft. But today's all about leadership, kicked off by Alt's blog post, and in a way a contribution to the series of blog posts about guilds I always wanted to continue.

Today my exploration of, and elaboration on guilds will continue. While the last post was more of a statement I made, this time I am going to merely highlight a conflict that's central to my everyday life as a guild leader. As you've seen I can advocate for setting up rules. At the same time, I don't really like them.

I put many hours into this blog post, mostly because there's a lot I need to say about guilds. Before I settled on this one, there were many attempts, all exploring different aspects of the topic. But then, a few days ago, Marathal wrote about how WoW got us enchanted and about a desire for exploration, and that's when I knew where I want to start.
