Great points, all of them.I am definitely in agreement with the recommendations to pug when there are empty spots. Nothing says "this guild is dying" (to recruits and to current members) like canceling raids because there aren't enough people.Regarding guild recruitment ads, another thing I suggest is to always be absolutely sure things are spelled, punctuated, and capitalized correctly. Using leet speak (or just lazy speak) sends the message that it's not important enough to you to type it correctly, and you're likely to get people for whom it's not important enough to gem correctly, be prepared with raid strategies, or even to show up on time.Little things matter. Take care of them all the time, especially when you're pugging, and you'll get whispers after the raid like, "I really enjoyed the atmosphere tonight -- is your guild recruiting DPS?" There are lots of people who value the little things, and would be very happy to find a guild that values them too.
