When should you call it quits with running a guild?

Are you running with a guild? Or running a guild? Tho in either case, Kalmia answer is correct, you might owe more "due process" to a guild you run than one you run with.....maybe.

As well as if the guild isn't filling what you desire.

Running a guild is not always fun, it has its ups and downs like everything else. You should call it quits when you can no longer commit your time and effort or when you start looking at it at a chore, seeing it in the same light as a dirty litter box or baby vomit in your car.

When you don't anticipate logging on to raid or do activities with your guild or guildmates, when it's an unwanted duty and nothing more - it's probably time to take stock of what's going on - are you burned out on the game, or just a bad fit for your guild? Or has the guild turned into something/taken a direction that's no longer fun for you?

If you're running a guild, at that point, you have a couple of options. You can redirect the guild - or if you have a guild that's well organized in a direction you're just not interested in - see about passing it on and finding a home that suits you that you don't need to run.

When you spend more time managing the guild than you do playing/enjoying the game.

When your heart isn't in it anymore. You are doing yourself and all the people you lead a great disservice by letting the guild die a slow death because your own lack of enthusiasm or desire to properly lead it is making it grow stagnant.

Not sure Kuluth I agree with that.

When you've been logged out for more than 3 months and someone else takes it over. I prefer to take care of what's mine, and if what's mine isn't doing much for me, I will only log when I need to, but I don't like risking things that are mine falling into the hands of people I don't trust. There's many benefits of keeping a guild that you are no longer interested in vesting too much of your time with, and I don't see anything wrong with it at all. I mean your own guild bank, possibly some officers and members there to run it for you while you take a leave of absence. Just keep in mind, that if you are not that active a lot of people may leave. Though I have seen a few people on these forums recently complain about officers coming back infrequently and taking things from the guild bank, and because they are of a lower rank they can't overthrow them, when they are there, doing everything for their guilds...

But then again, why would anyone be doing everything for a guild where it's not appreciated?
