I was reading their WoW info page when i noticed they have a whole forum dedicated to guild recruitment (http://www.battle.net/forums/wow/bo...e=wow-guildhall). We've been wanting to recruit from other boards for awhile now, so do we want to stop here?

(poll will time out in ten days from the time of this post)

I actually thought about posting about this, but we can't right now. We don't even have a site up yet, in other's peoples eyes we are a joke if we advertise this early.

And it wouldn't really be right to scream at people that we want to take over the world. Some of them are stupid or something and don't want to become a tiny part of a gigantic Azeroth-encompassing empire anyway. Failures.

I'm with Arctic, we need a site first.

Now if someone would give me the info I needed (ftp, username, password, documents, images, special design wishes ect, ect), I could get on it.

Oh yeah!

This isn't really on the topic; but somehow you guys reminded me.

I have designed a flag for the WDP; and when I fix/get a new scanner I'll show it!

I don't think we should advertise ourselves too much until at least half-way through the beta. That way, for the first half of beta testing, we'll be known by word of mouth, no one really knowing for sure who, where, or what we are. Then, midway we come out in full force and basically slap the other players in the face with our prescence. That way, by the time the WDP really makes itself known, there will be gossip about us, and we can use yellow journalism to our advantage. Plus we'll be established and organized by that time with some pretty powerful characters already built up.

All beta characters are going to be wiped periodically. You will have no built up characters.

Well, that sucks. But at least we'll have those with the knowlege to build up caracters as rapidly as possible.

Hmm, I'm the only one that voted no huh? Hehehe. Well, I say no, because from my experience of those boards, it's 80% or so people who... well... let's just say I wouldn't be proud to call them a guildmate

I've been doing website design as a hobby for years. I can help you get a site up and going if you like. My main weakness is graphics and whatnot, but I think I'm pretty good at coding and layout.

http://w3t.war3.com/guerrillaradio

That's my latest "work". As you can see, not so good as far as graphics go.. but the layout is quite good I'd say. I set up the whole news posting ordeal too, so people can log in and post news and such. Didn't write the script for it though. I'm only a beginner with PHP and other such scripting languages.

I agree with Sadistic. I've never thought very highly of most of the posters on the bnet forums. I wouldn't say to never advertise on those forums, but I don't think we should advertise too much there

So you mean to me that we got at least 4 web site builders here, (Sadistic, Mac, So and So, and myself), and we still don't have a site?

Problem is, we're all lazy bastards as well.

I think we would be better off if we kept it on these forums, and not soaking up the pond scum at battle.net
