and the nice thing is having more than one guild slot! woot! list of guilds http://tarnished-coast.com/forum/index.php?/forum/11-guilds/ and ODIN http://tarnished-coast.com/forum/index.php?/topic/124-odin-valkyrja-söngur/
I think mentorship has decreased in the game from when it first started though as well. When I stepped into WvW for the first time there were friendly individuals who were willing to "show me the ropes" and tell me what to look for or do, people like Disco or Xerica and Maz when CERN was shiny new, or commanders like Kittaine or Azeroth or Jadon willing to show new players where siege could be placed etc. I do think that motivation plays a role as well, do people want to know the community and resources or are they happy just playing the game. For example I also sought out opportunities to learn more and be more involved. it is fine either way, but keeping in the loop and being a guild leader or a commander requires a bit more work.
