My 12 year old son asked me to post a message to find out if there are any other homeschoolers who play WoW. He would love someone to play with, but we are very strict with his usage. He plays with language filters on, and is only allowed to group with his Dad or I, but he suggested maybe he could group with other homeschoolers. Smart kid! I told him if we can find enough people, I would be willing to fund a guild (a group of individuals who are sort of a team, who share a bank, and a special group chat area) and possibly start a yahoo group so they could talk to each other about when they would be online, do quests together, perhaps talk school, ect.
If you or your child is interested, please let me know, and I will let you know what realm and more info. If you have never heard of WoW, I'd be glad to share more about that as well! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Added after initial post :
I received quite a few response via email, pm or on other message boards so the guild is up and running!
guild: Murloc Preservation Soc (I didn't want anything that indicated they were children or homeschooled)
whisper for invite: Axalia, Zali, Poppi, or Tommegh
If I'm not online, feel free to email me to see about setting up a time to get you an invite
Juise - 80 S. Priest (H)
Saemai - 79 Hunter (H)
Tsarei - 79 Paladin (H)
And 7 other alts mostly ranging from 60 to 16, including a twinked warrior for the 29 bracket, and a twinked mage for the 49 bracket, although those have gotten harder to play these days.
Those are the three I play the most, though Tsarei and Saemai are both slow leveling through pvp for 79 (Actually Saemai has been leveling solely through pvp since 71) which is so much fun. Especially on the retadin. Omg. And I thought waaaaayyy back in the day when hunters were OP was fun, or melting faces with the shadow priest was fun when that was so OP, but neither were near so ridiculous as this

Its all here other than the few really bad groups I get. Seriously, the very first group I ever got was 4 guys from Muradin, all from the same guild and incredibly geared. They hauled my butt through PoS, FoS and HoR like it was a regular run
I'm completely spoiled We really need to start doing some guild runs, but I really want my perky pug!
My friend, who does a lot of end game raiding on his Alliance toons on another server, now has at least 3 Horde 80s on my server. So far I haven't gone with him on much of anything, but he seems always to be on doing heroic pugs. He's one of those people very knowledgeable about spells and their abilities and the best rotations, but for whatever reason he's having a hard time with his feral druid now. He feels like he can't quite optimize the rotation, but he's been getting better gear, feeling guilty for going into instances because his dps isn't the greatest, but they always end up doing well. He feels like things have really been nerfed.
So today, instead of his druid he took his lock, who does over 2k dps and is better geared. And the people in his group looked at his gear score, said, "omg, your gear score is only 3200, gtfo noob!" And then they broke up the group. This is to run fairly simple heroics. He was glad he didn't go with the group, and ended up getting in a PuG for heroic Gun'drak where he was the top dps and they had no issues. I hate this stupid gear score stuff because it seems like players can just be rude idiots and not put any thought behind anything.
Not that this is unusual for this game. I'm feeling kind of negative about it all. I wish there was a server for people over 40.
We haven't had any trouble yet even when running random dungeons with new 80's (on Illidan). I still am trying to reach 80 on my new tauren druid. It's level 74 now.
