founder-less guild

Can an active Founder step down? My guild is looking to merge with a more active guild and I'd like to yield my position to new leadership in the incoming player group. Do I have to go inactive for 30 days to make the change, or is there a mechanism for a peaceful transfer of power?

Two Guilds can NOT merge.
One of the Guilds have to be disbanded and all the members have to join the other Guild.

But yes...A founder can step down but he has to give another member Founder status before he steps down.
 
In game mechanic terms you are correct. Technically speaking they are planning to join my tiny higher-ranked and resourced guild and take over the management, then disbanding their old one. Not sure what our name will be--may adopt their previous guild name.

Thanks for the info on stepping down. I inherited the job and welcome the change.
