[A] Recruiting casual but serious raiders EST

The short version:
3+ year old guild under the same management the entire time (me!)
25man Alliance, 8/8H 7:30-9:30pm EST Tue/Wed/Sun (2 hour raid nights = short and fun)
Relaxed attendance requirements (see long version for details)
Casualcore raiding (No one gets yelled at when/if they screw up, the schedule is light, but raiding is taken seriously and people are expected to perform well and be prepared)

The long version:

<Integrity> is a serious but casual raiding guild, with forgiving attendance, alt-friendly policies, and a focus on raiding for fun while still progressing steadily. Integrity is over 3 years old, with the same leadership over that time, providing a stable raiding environment with a solid, competant core, but are equally welcoming of new members.

We are primarily a WoW PvE end-game raiding guild, but also enjoy all aspects of gaming. We have a minecraft server, play diablo 3 together, tried and quit SWTOR together, PvP together WAY too much, are looking forward to trying out GW2, etc etc etc.

Our 2 principles as a guild are:

1. All our raids are optional, as I've found that the biggest source of burnout is feeling like you HAVE to show up. Take that out, and people just enjoy raiding more. Rather play Diablo tonight than raid? No big deal, we'll still be raiding. Need a month off to focus on finals? Take care of business. Wife/husband talk you into having a kid and you won't be around for the next year? We'll be here when you get back, but seriously, you should have talked faster, kids are a hassle and seriously cut into raid time.

2. Our primary requirement for potential guild mates is maturity followed by competence. If you think trade chat anal jokes or fart noises in vent is funny and/or mature, this is not the guild for you, no matter how good a player you may be. Making sure everyone fits together socially first dramatically reduces the amount of drama.

Progression raids are 25man: 7:30-9:30 EST, Sun/Tue/Wed, alt/transmog/achievement runs on off nights. 2 hours of solid raiding (IE starting on time, no giant AFK breaks, minimal stupid wipes) has proven effective for us to enjoy raiding without feeling like we've been run through a meat grinder. And if you can sit through a 2 hour movie, you don't need a 10 minute break in the middle of a raid.

Our recruitment goal is to have ~30 people online at raid time; we are not recruiting a huge bench for bench's sake. When we have too many people we ask for volunteers to sit (there are always people who show up but would rather do something else that night), then choose people to sit based required raid comp, capability, and who hasn't gotten to raid recently. No priority is given for long-term members or officers. Favoritism, "cliques" and drama are not tolerated.

Progression is currently 8/8 H DS. Our 20 some odd core members are great players, but the more social/casual members who have been filling in those last 5 or so spots just aren't capable of taking things to the next level before nerfs.

As such, we are recruiting hard mode skilled players who also want the flexibility to go on a date once in a while without losing a raid spot, but want a solid, fun raid group when they are available.

Do you guys do any weekend raids? I raided with yall one day on my rogue "Mcstabbins" and I thought you guys were a pretty cool bunch of peeps.
Only on Sundays night through the summer. Sometimes on Friday night during the "stay inside it's cold months" if some of us want to push progression on an extra night. Saturdays are pretty much a no-go because I like to not sleep on the couch.
Still recruiting. As of 7/2 full on rogues, warriors, priests, and main spec tanks. Light on druids and hunters.
Still recruiting ranged dps, but will consider any exceptional person. Added a new warlock today by convincing my summer intern that it's ok to play WoW again, he can stop when it gets to finals time, and in no way will he fail out his senior year of college.

Muh ha ha ha ha ha. /thunder
/bump for 6/8H. Still recruiting primarily ranged dps, but exceptional players should still apply, assuming you're not a:

Mainspec tank

If you are one of the above, you may not get to raid as much as you'd like. Also we're no longer accepting purely social members unless you're friends or family of a current raider.
Opening up recruitment for priests again, because one of ours is all like "hey I wanna be a warlock in pandawow!"
Bump for 7/8H. Still recruiting non-hunter ranged dps and non-priest healers.
My warrior had the privilege of being in this guild.
They are everything that Helagoth advertises plus maybe some f%$kin magic paladin power s&%t.
Awwwwwww. If you are who you think I think you are, I missed you buddy!

Also, bump for 8/8H
Congrats all on 8/8!
