I have a little guild experiment going, I used to be an officer in a guild and kinda miss some of it so recently I've founded a small guild with the nische that we only raid once every week, to cater to people like myself that now once we've grown up just kind find that time to invest which I put in before, but still like the social experience of raidning.And boy has it been a struggle, and still is. We've done all the steps that Mr. Andrews brings to light. And when we recruit we emphasize what makes us unique. On a densly populated server we've found maybe 5-6 people who wants to be formed in a guild this way, the rest we pug.There's definetely a "Lol no mass ress?!?!?!"-mentality nowadays. And frankly the way the current guildrep/xp is designed is flawed in my opinion since i absolutely favors large guilds.

In my guild we raid only 1 night a week as well. A lot of people assume that it really hinders our progression, but pre-nerf we were clearing to majordomo in 1 night. Last week, our first raid post-nerf, we cleared to ragnaros but didn't pull, and we started particularly late. And all these clears were with at least 4-5 pug's. It was frustrating to know that if we had a consistent roster we could have been full clearing in 1 night for quite some time. When we originally moved the guild towards the 1 night schedule, I really assumed there would be a good number of people that wanted the fun of raiding without the huge time commitment, but, after this much of Cataclysm playing out with only 1-2 real recruits that have stuck with it, I'm a bit disheartened. We attempt to recruit with that being one of our major selling points, and we just don't get the bites.any tips would be highly appreciated.
