Default Lamentations of a midlevel guild

We are the daywasters, a midlevel guild on server 1, currently ranked in the mid-60's (66 or so). We have a core of about a dozen active players as well as a group of inactives, much like the other guilds ranked around us. We are improving slowly: we've knocked off 3 or 4 dungeons in the last 2 months, and are close to knocking off #16.

What we've failed to do is attract new members. We post regularly in the guild recruitment section, but the yield is nil. We've posted in the guild mergers section, without reply. We've attacked lower level guilds that appear to be dying--in one case, only 3 members joined in a defense--and then emailed the actives to see if they would like to join us. No response.

I did get one request to join last week: Responded 2 hours later, but by then he had already joined a guild ranked in the 30's. It seems that attrition has been high and therefore lots of guilds have open spots and are willing to take all comers.

I could easily jump to a higher ranked guild, but I'd rather help build a guild with a bunch of similarly-minded people. We just can't figure out how to find them.

Yep, happens every year, in every online game I've ever played. Well, unless you're in the UK where the weather happens to have been a very deep shade of CRAP this summer

weather just recently dipped below "you can fry an egg in your car" temperatures here. I don't expect many people were enjoying the outdoors, but there are always at least a few folks who exceed expectations. lol

Been very hot here also compared to other years and it doesn't help having lake Erie on one side lake Ontario on anther and Niagara Falls in your back yard makes the humidity go up to 85% to 90%+. So as hot as the mid west and south but very sticky.
