Yes, we have some leaders that do a lot and if you look they fit in a certain time frame and honestly wish others would step up so they could be followers instead of leaders all the time. There really are a lot more holes in the calendar than we think, but we also have a lot of people that fit into the same 25% of the day as well. So it's a balance of people wanting leaders, but those willing to lead wanting other leaders to help in the time slots where not as many leaders are available.
You should be able to approach any leader with an event posted and ask about working out timing with them on leading if they are posting a lot in the time frame you know you can lead. I know some are willing to step back and let others have the reigns and even keep asking for others in the time frame they play to grab and lead instead. So it's more about WHEN then how often and who. We really have most of the leaders around weekdays at 5pm server to maybe 1am server. Then there are a few that can fill in the other times when things are a lot quieter but usually an event can still pull 10 to 40 people depending on the day for that off peak time. We definitely do not FILL the calendar, just that we really can fill that NA prime time FAST.
If you have stage fright about tyring to lead, there are plenty of people that will come out anyway and support you no matter how it turns out. We all had to learn sometime how to do what we wanted. =)
So don't be afraid to talk to the leaders of your game time slots about getting some of the leading in so all those really wanting events to follow can have the leaders they need.
Now I do have one question...
Is there an issue with different types of events going on at the same time? I.E. PvE vs WvW vs RP. Now I definitely would not want PvE and even more so WvW with more than one at a time. But we have players that will only do one or the other and say they won't WvW, but they would love PvE going on as an option as well as vice versa. Sure it puts more than one thing at a time, but allows for more options of how to work as a family. Of course, my say is definitely not the final one. ;) Of course, I'm not sure how ruffled people are really getting over this is my time slot because it sure isn't happening NA day time during the week. Actually I wound up leading just so an event could be finished because the leader needed a break from leading and everyone did NOT want the event to end.
