I belong to a guild that has between 40-50 active members. It took a while for me to feel like I was a part of it. The guild members were friendly enough but when you are in a situation where everyone else seems to know everyone it's hard to fit in. It wasn't expensive to join ($15) for a year so I gave it a chance. I'm glad I did. I've made friends and learned a lot. I think with any group you have to be a little bolder than is probably in your comfort zone initially so that you can eventually feel like family. I wish my group would do a little more with education and sharing tips but I really enjoy the show and tell for ideas. Give it a try but I'd allow more than one visit to make an assessment.
