@Andy on the Outside,Consider starting your own 10 man at a time that is convenient to you, and opening it up to guild alts, since it sounds like most of the mains in your guild are spoken for. While alts usually aren't as well geared at first, the players know the fights and generally have a high level of competence, so progression will happen quickly. And I bet you'll find lots of people in your guild have alts that they love almost as much or more than their mains at this late stage of Wrath.Good luck!

But first, clear it with the officers in your guild (if it's an in-guild event). I think stepping up and offering to lead a weekday 10 man is a great solution, but you want to avoid the appearance of poaching etc. Guilds are different - some don't mind anyone who wants to leading a raid, others insist on a designated RL leading them, etc. However, I think you'll need to find a new guild in the long run unless you can convince them to do a weekday raid in Cata. It's not reasonable to think they should reschedule their weekend raids that currently work just for you and if they're not willing to also have weekday raids (in addition to the weekend ones), then you'll be back here when we allhit 85 and raid in cata.

absulutely... you can't expect them to make room for you in a group that you cannot commit to.if the guild is large enough, start another group. talk to the officers about it, post it on the website (if you have one) and put together your own group.if that's not a possibility, then you will probably have to find a new guild. i agree with your GM... it's more your problem then the guild's. you joined a raiding guild that raids when you can't. they are not gonna change raid night for one person.good luck. i hope it works out for you.

I had the same problem in reverse, with a twist. I joined a 'raiding' guild (Chicken on Rice/Dark Iron) because they needed help getting their members attuned to Kara. (I was already attuned). When I joined, I was (and still am) only available on weekends. Everything was great, with promises of kara runs after everyone was attuned. Then as soon as I helped them get attuned (btw, I never want to see Black Morass again) 'they' decided to change the raiding schedule to weekdays, late night, leaving me out in the cold. I haven't done a raid since.

Really it just sounds like he needs a new guild. It took me a long time to find one that can be competitive in progression but still raids less than 9 hours a week. It took me six months and a server transfer but I found it and I've never been happier. Besides you can always keep an alt in the old guild to chat now and then.
