I am 36 and have played SWG, EQ2, ***, and FE. I live in the US on the West Coast and generally log on after 2pm PST. My toon is Draven Ralos, Lt Cmdr 1 Tactical Officer flying an escort. My belief is that guilds/fleets are meant to be a community that helps eachother if possible. This obviously doesn't mean drop what you are doing. Its also a place to pool your knowledge to get an enhanced awareness toward increasing your ingame skill.
What I am looking for is:
+Casual but not so casual all you do is sit on coms and talk(no yes sir/no sir...I already served in the military thank you)
+Have voip (TS/Vent)
+Website or Forum
+And perhaps the most important is be respectful of other players
If you're looking for a fleet, come check out The Fifth Fleet.
We're looking for all types of players.

After reading your post, I thought I'd share a little about the 1-8-7 and see if you thought we might fit what you're looking for.
Fleet 187 is 100+ strong with members who like to PvP, PvE, RP and some who have no idea what those letters mean (it's their first MMO). We consider ourself a mature fleet, but we do have one or two teens. We have accepted those because they seemed mature and wanted to play with older players. So far it's worked out well for both sides.
We use vent and have a website. We expect members to show up on both on a regular basis, although not daily. The reason is simple. We want people who want to be part of something larger, and we're not out for just numbers. Personally, I don't invite everyone who posts they are looking for a fleet, and we don't approve every applicant (especially those who submit an application and do not return to the website for follow up in a timely manner). There are no rubber stamps at the 1-8-7.
The best way for you to decide if we might be a good fit is to drop by fleet187.com and see what we're all about. I think you'll be glad you did.
