Still looking for that one amazing Holy Paladin that will make the cut as we work on wrapping up the last 3 hardmodes in DS, unfinished business in other tiers, and push forward into MoP.
And could use some more Ranged DPS depth to our line-up.
Please read the original post for more in-depth details about our recruitment specifically.
That was badly worded on my part, which I'll admit. It has been redone to be more understandable and accurate. The original statement, which you've quoted, was in reference to our previous line-up and their capbabilities on normal madness. Like any guild, we've had some changes over the last 6 months with our starting line up.
Those numbers were used because in my experience people often boast their 'best' dps possible in any raid encounter, and since the madness encounter typically has the highest dps output out of all DPS on 'average', I used it. So when I got apps, or whispers, or mails of people telling me they could do '50k dps!', I knew this normally meant on Madness with a double lust or just complete bullcrap.
Basically I was using a pre-emptive filter on B.S. dps'rs.
Legitimate and capable dps normally provide logs for review. Our app doesn't ask for logs directly, but we do ask for current guild and raid group, and thus we go look it up ourselves for those individuals applying to our main raid.
Problem is, a lot of the time we get apps from people who don't have any logs we can look up or even reference for us. So it makes it a little more difficult to weed out the undesirables, which is basically what the application process is for afterall.

WhoRRAAAY!! Warmaster down! =)
Finally! After 2 and a half months of making my healers dps, we got some MS dps, and 6 attempts later baboom! (Although I think it felt more like 4 from 2 quickly called wipes, but anywho).
I know... I know.. woopie do. Welcome to 3 months ago, Pony. You're late. Yadda yadda.
I know. I get it. I really do. It's "not that big of a deal" and I shouldn't be so happy, even though I am.
Screw that haters, you're missing the point. Which is? We didn't give up after all that time. Think about it. Here in Immediate Gratification Cata and at the end of the expansion we kept at it until we got it. Now we're pushing on for the last two. As someone whispered me the other day while we were raiding, "A lot of guilds don't even raid now, they just sit around BS'n in trade." Not us, we're raiding and not just doing farm content or alt raids!
Woo! Woo! Not feeling like a leadership failure! (lemme have my moment. It's not like I picked the easy thing to do here with how we raid. :P :P :P)
WOOOOOOOOT! What a rush! =^) (which apparently became contagious to those I told about us downing it in-game. I think a lot of people miss that 'rush'. That's a shame really.)

We're still recruiting for this raid, but not much class wise in all honestly. I've updated the original post to reflect what we wouldn't mind having on hand to add further depth to our roster.

Well we just got our first Heroic Madness kill. To my knowledge that makes us the only 100% Ventless raid guild in the world to get their first kill this way, and without any individuals with previous kills on the encounter. (We're friends with the deaf guilds guys, and they still use it in some regard for their non-deaf members. We don't at all.)
Thanks again to all the folks who showed us support over the passed year and cheered us on. It's been appreciated. We're looking forward to MoP. Hope you are too! =^)
Oh yeah, kill shot: http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/6192/1280x800o.jpg
