I haven't had much to say about Guilds except that I look forward to explorer influence via User Created Content and the Guilds are necessary to achieve it. I watch and wait for official sanction and your organizational efforts to bear fruit.

If there's anything I'd like to see remembered as the Guilds continue to form, it is these things:

Cyan's premise is widely regarded as providing the environment for a community to build itself. This aspect of Uru Live will be made or broken based on their support of your abilities.

Those who seek power and glory are usually the least deserving of your loyalty because they serve their own interests, not yours.

Those who require a push from the community to take positions of leadership often do the best job because they respect you, the community, and their place in it.

To echo Scyrone's post, I think there's a point in the middle between these two caricatures, full of people more than willing to step up and take charge on a project because they see it as something that needs to be done as a service to the community, not because they want to see their name in lights. While I'm sure many could quickly pigeon-hole the infamous Sydney Austin into the first category, for example, I think that so far, everyone working on the Guild project has stepped forward trying to make things better for everyone. It may be true that if you're running for President, you're probably not the best person for the job, but thankfully, I think the politics have been kept to a minimum throughout this collaboration, and those leading are doing so because they enjoy building something inherently greater than themselves.

At least, that's why I'm going through all this trouble... I dunno about the rest of you guys ;).
