02/11/2013 11:45 AMRe: Recruitment, you may want to try using the in-game /guildfinder tool, as well as your realm forum. The [url="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/2187372/"]Raid and Guild Leadership forum[/url] is also a good place to seek advice on recruitment, and I'm sure some others here may also have recommendations on how to best focus your recruitment efforts.

OMG!!! A blue response directed towards recruitment. This must be a sign of the impending apocalypse.!!!
But seriously - Your guild recruitment forums suck. They are worse than suck (but I'll stop myself from ranting in four letter words).
What's wrong with them? They are completely unusable by anyone other than Heroic Progression oriented guilds. It's just a jumbled mess of everything together.
What do they need? Some level of freaking organization. I have thoughts on how to do it, but honestly, just hire some intern to figure out a system. It would be about a billion times better than it is.
Here's how I would do it (but again, I'd settle for ANY level of organization):
Horde Guild Recruitment
Alliance Guild Recruitment
Non-Raiding Activity Guilds
Subforum for Raiding Guilds:
Heroic Progression Oriented Guilds
Normal Mode Guilds
My god, that took me like 5 minutes. Think of the Effort to Rewards ratio there!!! Your recruitment forums go from suck (and a bunch of four letter words) to OMG I could actually use this thing!!
Remember, guilds keep this game running - not just content. People buy for content, they sub for the people they are playing with.
