I have seen this problem in numerous guilds. There are quite a few things you can do, but it will take some effort on the part of yourself and the officers. And it may take a few sacrifices.The problem of being 2-3 short of a full raid has an obvious solution. Recruit. A guild only gets so many members by having a website with an application section. Actively look for good players in Naxx, EoE, and OS. Ask them to apply. Spam a little in trade chat. Put your guild's name out there.If you have downed content and are still having trouble with it, it could be a number of things. My guess is that since you are so short on attendance you have to take EVERYONE who's online. Most of the time that means a sorry raid composition and including people who just don't perform. That brings me back to recruiting. Once you have 10-20 more active players, you can focus more on which classes/specs will help the raid, and you will not be forced to bring certain people JUST because there was nobody else.Lastly, get serious in your raids. I don't mean you have to be a jerk. But make people pop flasks, gem/enchant their gear correctly, and work on their characters outside of the specified hours of the weekly raids.Good luck with your guild.
