I have a couple thoughts about the attendance policy. I noticed these issues because of Jardinn's situation since I know him and am therefore more aware of his list eligibility. The week of the August 14 raid, Jardinn signed up late on Wednesday. Judrog confirmed him Friday, and he did attend the raid but received no points. It seems to me he should get no points for sign up but should get his one attendance point.
1 point is assigned for attendance at a raid unless there was no sign up in Raid Ninja - in this case no points are awarded for raid attendance.
Since the rule says you get no points if there is NO sign up, and the attendance spreadsheet has a designated color for incorrect sign ups, it appears to me that it's possible to get the attendance point and just lose the sign up points. This distinction does not matter to most of us since we're already are on the list, but for new people it makes a big difference. If any flaws in the sign up are intended to earn the raider zero points for the week, the wording could be changed.
Another issue which has prevented Jardinn from making the list though he has raided with us a decent amount is that he hadn't officially applied before starting to raid with us. If I remember correctly, he did a full raid with us and joined us mid raid the night Hodir was giving us problems. I propose that people who are accepted as official subs would get attendance credit (one point, half a point?) for full raids they attended before becoming a sub. This change would not require Jez to add to the list every pug we ever use--only ones who subsequently become subs. It would only require a check to see if a new sub did any full raids in the recent past. The applicant could even be required to post the WoL reports as proof of attendance.
Maybe he just had an unusually bad combination of factors, but it seemed to me that Jardinn earned list worthiness before the technicalities allowed him to be on the list. I don't claim to be unbiased about Jardinn, but are these ideas OK?
