Apr 22nd 2010 9:02PM For hunters, here a Huntsmans Lodge link to PowerAura set ups:
Also, one of my favorite hunter addons is Kharthus's Hunter Timers. LOVE LOVE LOVE this addon, especially for trinket and set bonus procs.
Oct 16th 2009 10:24AM I think the advice Drama Mamas gave to Egg is right on.
Frankly, unless the situation personally involved Egg (i.e. he was the one the item was ninja'd from) then it's none of his business what was done to the offender. He reported it, and there should be some trust there that the GM handled the situation.
As the GM of a raiding guild, we have a no tolerance policy for ninjas. Our rules clearly state that if it's found that the ninja'ing was malicious and deliberate the ninja gets gkicked. That's what works for us, but I certainly don't expect it to be the same for every guild out there.
Sep 28th 2009 5:55PM As far as website usage goes, we use the calendar and raid sign-up feature on GuildLaunch. Our rules are such that if you're not signed up on the website by noon the day of the raid, you are last (and I mean dead last) to get invited. I have taken sub-optimal class combo's into raids to drive my point home to those that choose not to utilize the sign ups. This is the only effective method I've found of driving website traffic.

Make sure you've specced your gorilla into thunderstomp. I had the same issue and noticed a big difference after doing this.
Mar 19th 2009 1:44AM Our guild uses DKP for 25 man raids and we've been relatively drama free.
- We earn points per boss kill. This speeds the raid up as people aren't inclined to screw around to stretch the payout.
- Points cap out at 300 our bidding is done in increments of 5. This keeps people from hoarding points, because after 300 points, you're essentially raiding for free.
- We don't stand around picking our noses while we wait for bidding, we move on to clear toward the next boss. this speeds the raid up.
- Main spec ALWAYS gets priority. Off spec costs a flat amount and it's rolled on if there is more than one bid. No drama. Our officers know well the classes/specs/stat requirements and if someone makes a bonehead bid, it's handled quickly and privately.
- We give new members a starter pool once they've been voted into the guild after their recruitment period is up. This gives recruits something to look forward to since they won't be completely left behind.
DKP does reward those who raid more and that is exactly how it should be, imo. If you make time for raids, prepare consumables, and consistantly contribute you should get a leg up over the guy that shows up once every two weeks and says "plz drop feast thx" because he can't be bothered to do more than type his password. The attitude that you should be rewarded with hard earned loot because you deigned to grace the game with your presence is BS.
Our guild is not uber hardcore, but we don't carry people either. We are all adults with RL responsibilities and limited play time, so our in game goals are taken seriously. Depsite Naxx being stupid easy, we DO work hard to reach them. If you want to raid, come on and do it. If you don't, that's fine, too. Just remember, raiding is like most things in life - you get out of it what you put into it.
