I do prefer to be a member over a leader, that all said. Often the effort involved in running a guild, even a small one, isn't worth the effort or the time it takes from your life. It has become easier over the years, as games have become more casual, content easier to access for more players, but anyone who says it's not a second job is fooling themselves or is one of those casual leaders. Over the years I've taken to sharing the guild leadership with two others, as a triumvirate. Sometimes we all do everything, other times (like with WildStar) we have split the responsibility, i.e. PvE leader, PvP leader, logistics leader. Either way though, it's not one leader and two officers following the leader's goals, it is three equal leaders sharing the same goals and taking up the slack for whoever is starting to feel the stress or needs to disappear for RL stuff for a bit. There is nothing in RL or gaming that would ever make me go back to being a solo leader though. I'd give up guilds entirely before being forced into that again, lol.
