I am a raid leader of a 10 man raiding guild (#1 server, top 90 world) and we HAVE done hard modes and are up to Yogg on normal modes. We still have this issue, one big thing is that the population of the server is low so most of the people who want to raid (and not one that just hope to sneak in and sponge gear) are taking up in the multitude of raiding guilds on the server. We have been recruiting while a while and all I can say is, keep at it. You just have to have a trade chat spam make sure you post on the boards and just hope you catch the eye of a like minded person. There ARE a lot of people out there that have run in 40/25 guilds for most of their real life and are either tired of the drama that most 25s bring or whatever. We still raid 3 days a week in Ulduar (occasionally four when people want to but 3 are set) like a "real" raid guild, our main attraction for people is hard modes: we have downed some and each week we spend most of our time attempting new ones (if we did all normals we could clear Ulduar in 1.5 raid nights) our wipes come from progressing on hard modes 75% of the time and maybe Yogg 15% (some random wipes of course from normal screw ups not accounted for). The other thing we bring is the small atmosphere and that you can reasonably expect to get to know everyone in the first few times you raid, I have raided in plenty of 25 content prior to wrath and most of the time 25 guilds are segmented into cliques of friends or harder core versus more casual etc. In 10 man you don't really run into that as players raid with the same basic group every night. To the author of the letter, just keep trying and get some hard modes down try and get a core group that you can keep hold of for the Argent raid and Icecrown. Might be worth looking at a server transfer if your guild can find one that accommodates more memebrs
