Ya, I've been here long enough to know better...just kinda bummed....want this guild to be different....dont' want a repeat of what happened to me in EE.. >.<
Here's a piece of advice from my point of view:
At the moment there's several pre-guild at the moment on the forum and if you want to be successful you will have to stand out more. Because after all it's the eye candy which makes thing stand out, an example is; a person is browsing through all these pre-guilds quickly and he wants to pick one as soon as possible, simply because there's so many to choose from.
I'm not saying all people are like this but I could safely say that most of them are. That's how it is generally and not only with guilding.
Good luck with your guild!
