What We Are:
Drop bears is a casual-raiding and casual-PVP guild. We are more interested in having fun and hanging out in guild chat with cool people than catassing our way to "glory." That said, working our way through the Outlands 25 player instances is a high priority.

We have several experienced PVP players, and many of us are transplants from PVP servers. We mostly engage in pickup battlegrounds, although we also do premades and will probably field an arena team next season.

We are alt-friendly. If you want to play your noob Draenei Shaman instead of your main, that's cool with us. Your alts are welcome in the guild. The one exception to this rule: We only allow alts in if your main is in the guild too.

Our major timezones for player activity are the North American timezones, primarily EST/PST, as well as the Australia and New Zealand timezones.

We have 4 major rules:
  1. Have fun!
  2. Don't be an ass! (negotiable)
  3. It's a freaking game, not the end of the world!
  4. If you sign up for an event, show up on time! (If you find out you can't make it, remove yourself from the sign up list!)

What We Are NOT: We are not a hardcore, scheduled raid every night, mandatory attendance, poopsocking, OMG LOOT DRAMA guild. The only raid schedule we maintain is "this weekend."

We aren't interested in your drama. Most of us have left other guilds because of the unending drama and powerstruggles.

We don't care about your age. 12 or 112, if you're here to play and have fun, we're happy to have you. We DO, however, care about your maturity. If you have the emotional resilience of a 3 year old, we're not interested.

Courtesy of Wikipedia:

A drop bear (or dropbear) is a fictitious Australian marsupial supposedly related to the koala.

Drop bears are commonly said to be unusually large, vicious, carnivorous koalas that inhabit treetops and attack their prey by dropping onto their heads from above. They are an example of local lore intended to frighten and confuse outsiders, and amuse locals, similar to the jackalope, hoop snake or haggis hunting.

Some suggest that the drop bear myth is designed to discourage children from straying needlessly below eucalyptus trees, protecting them from the very real danger of getting hit by a falling branch. Arbitrary detachment of old branches is common with certain species of the eucalyptus, which are known as 'widow-makers' for this very reason.

The drop bear myth appears to have first appeared during the latter half of the 20th century, and may have its origins with the Phascolarctos stirtoni, the carnivorous Phascolarctos involus or perhaps the Thylacoleo carnifex, which belong to a group of extinct animals known as Australian megafauna. The prehistoric creatures were approximately twice the size of modern koalas. The thylacoleo is thought to have been an arboreal predator that may well have ambushed prey by dropping on it from overhead branches.

Stories of drop bears are often told to unsuspecting foreign visitors to illustrate Australian deadpan humour. It is suggested that doing ridiculous things like having forks in the hair or Vegemite or toothpaste spread behind the ears will deter the creatures. Such precautions are lent credibility by the fact that Australian Magpies can be deterred from attacking by wearing sunglasses on the back of the head.

Also, there is a lovely educational film that you can peruse here: http://www.bundabergrum.com.au/html/comm/clips_hq/drop_bear.mpg
