I remember in BC, being the officer of a moderately successful raiding and casual guild. I was lead officer in charge of recruitment and raid groups, and we had 3 10 man teams, running on avg about 5 raids a week, grouping up for 25's. We used rotation, and raid core tactics, and for the most part were successful. It took quite a bit of babysitting on my part, switching people in and out, making sure the group comp was right, and self RLing 2 groups. I set out rules from the get go for recruitment, behavior, loot, and self preparedness. If you showed up to my raid without your buff foods/ flasks etc, we would replace you, even if it meant pugging in someone. I don't mean to say that this is the perfect way, but after a few times, it got the msg across that I was serious about that rule. The first and second groups did fine and took off like a rocket (group comp was good on those, and the people got along, something else that's important). The third one struggled and limped a bit, being consistently to spite best efforts short a healer. You would think in a guild with over 95 active accounts we could come up with one druid or something, persuade a Shaman to change specs, but no. In the end that group failed. I do have the pleasure though of seeing some of my old raiders in Org on occasion. A few of them are in great raiding guilds now. Looks like we trained them up right *tear* :D
