Step 1:Server forum assignments.You should really try to have one person assigned from your guild to watch and interact on your server's forum each day of the week. You can't underestimate the power of getting your name out there into the public consciousness. Try to pick the most literate members of your guild though. The last thing you want is some l33t speaking dork out there giving you a *bad* impression. Get someone in there who can type decently, and who is knowledgeable about the game and have them try to post in any thread that's available. Even if it's just to post in some other guilds recruitment thread about how "I ran an instance with these guys and they seem nice". That sort of stuff proves that *you're* actually pretty nice and it makes it seem like your guild isn't "too needy" for people.Step 2: As mentioned above, run lots of PuGs. Try to have at least 3 guild members in the PuG, and then bring in two other people to fill the slots. If they're any good, praise them. Let them know that they're a decent player and ask if they're satisfied with their current guild. Let them know that you are an officer in a guild and you like to hear what people like and don't like about theirs so you can help improve yours. That way you're not actively soliciting them to jump, but just giving them an opening to talk about what they don't like.Then... Once they've thought about their guild situation a bit, they might want to move to that guild with the nice GM who actually values people's opinions.
