New GM

Tuesdays are the regular weekly update day for World of Warcraft, so I am used to waiting for the updates to complete, which usually happens around 1:00 PM here. But I am unusually eager for this to happen today because I am a new Guild Master (GM).

The whole thing happened quite accidentally even though I'd been talking about for months now, as a friend and I decided we would co-GM a guild. He bought a guild already at level 8 and set it up for us both to GM. Then he deleted his account for reasons still unknown to me, leaving me the sole GM of this 8th-level guild.

I have no real idea what I'm supposed to do but I'm learning by doing. The web is woefully short of actual information on the subject of running a guild, though it has a lot of surface information on starting your own guild - most of which can be found within the game itself - so I'll probably be talking about it. Of course, I don't know what the hell I'm doing at this point.

Going in, I had a disjointed idea based largely on guilds from Dungeons & Dragons and historical Medieval times, though I admitted that it might not work in practice. I also said I did not want to recruit from Trade and wanted potential members to request admission (for all sorts of reasons). Right now, my new guild has four members...
