Mar 28th 2011 3:33PM As a person looking for a guild, it would be helpful if there was a place with a sortable list of key items like raid times, classes needed, style of guild, etc. across all the servers.
I dream of a guild who raids on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a 7pm start time (6:30 prep), that would be willing to take in a mage (Horde preferred to reduce switching costs). This magical guild would be mature and easy going, but not flakey. They would like to get together on non-raid days to explore old content, do guild achievements and help other guildies. Perhaps it is a pipe dream...

Jul 26th 2010 3:40PM As someone who falls into your "clueless" category, who has been on the receiving end of criticism, I greatly appreciate your advice here.
I would also like to add that the guidance that is provided the player should be actionable. Telling the mage that they need to improve their DPS, then saying to do so they need to research Elitist Jerks is not actionable! Do you know how many thousands of posts there are?! If the player was interested in spending 20 hours researching the best build for their class, they would have done so already. Instead, if you know of a particular guide or link that could benefit the player, point them directly to that resource. Give them pieces of advice that are bite sized enough for them to swallow. Don’t direct them to an add-on that completely changes their interface and expect them to overhaul their rotation, gear, talents and other play style in the same sitting.
I wish that I could say that every player is willing to spend just as much time as you on researching and improving their role, but that simply isn’t the case. Providing feedback in a way that is consumable will greatly improve the chances that the player will be able to act on your feedback.
Jul 13th 2010 4:31PM As someone in a profession that is required to send out a lot of emails to a lot of people, I know how incredibly easy it is to make such a simple mistake.
My heart goes out to the poor person that hit the send button. I am sure he/she feels like a fool and is concerned about keeping their job. I truely hope they don't fire the person for accidently putting people on the To: line instead of the BCC: line.
