What exactly does it mean to be a founder?

Quick answer - someone who's had an account since release (Feb 2006)

More details - Founders on the forums registered their forum names within a specific time period (between the last beta wipe & live game release), and were given the option of choosing one of 3 "founder" images.

Founder guilds are guilds that were formed during Headstart (a week or so before general release), so they had to have preordered. If the guild got to a certain size (20 members?) before the game went live, each member got a "Founder's Helm" (aka Batman helm), which appears on each newly created character (regardless of server or guild); similar to the other preorder items - amulet of natural armor, boots of minor striding, waterbreathing trinket (Target promo item).
