It has been decided to try and form two progression Ops groups for Sundays, assuming we are going to be able to find enough people to form two. This thread is for people to sign up for the progression groups. Note that this is a complete reconstruction of the progression group, so everyone, including people in the original group, need to sign up in here. This will give them the option to use a different character or role than before.
So, when posting in this thread, state what your role preference is and choose a secondary, just in case. You may choose only one role, but please provide a back up. We will try to make it as fair as possible. This thread, for now, is to see how many people are interested in being a part of our progression group. A few requirements are:
You must be level 55 when posting in this thread. If you are not 55 at the time of your post, we will have to put you in the pipeline behind others who are. For the purpose of fairness, seeing as people have had a slight advantage with early access, this rule will go into effect on 19 April 2013. Make sure though that your character is level 55 by then, or it will be put into the pipeline. To ensure this, make sure you include your character name. If your primary and secondary preferences are different characters, include which character is for which role.
You must be available on Sunday nights. This is our progression night. Currently, the time is set for starting the Op at 8:00 PM EST. While the day is not open for change (for now), the time may be adjusted based on what the groups want or are able to do.
You must be able to enter our mumble server. Voice chat is important for progression groups as it saves time and allows for instant communication without stopping your actions to type. We are willing to work with people who may not have the ability to talk, but remember that certain roles will suffer if that person cannot speak in mumble.
Be of good character. Yes, you do need to be a good person to do this. The reason is because chances are, you will wipe. You will lose a lot of money. You will get frustrated. It is progression, so expect a lot of failure. You need to be able to take constructive criticism well. You need to be able to admit when you made a mistake. The point is to learn.
Please feel free to make your sign ups. On Friday, I will check to make sure all the characters are 55 that are signed up. Those who are not will be put into the pipeline in the order of their signups.
P.S: Just for the hell of it too, make a suggestion for the team names.
Update: So far, we have 14 sign ups. 3 have their primary as tank, 2 as healer, and the rest primary for DPS. Depending on how sign ups go through the weekend, we will see how we need to set up groups.

Tyvir-ferux (lvl 55) Class: Shadow Role: DPS (have done minimal tanking, would be willing to learn for prog group if necessary, definitely better at dps though)
Tydyn (lvl 55 by friday is possible) Class: Guardian Role: Tank (definitely more comfortable with tyvir, but this is an option for tank or dps if the class is preferable) (EDIT: it looks like guardian tanking got significantly more relevant in 2.0)
Rhida Primary: Melee DPS Secondary: I'm practicing my tanking skills and getting better. I don't feel confident enough with my skills to tank in progression. Still, I'd be willing if you really feel one is needed
I'm also working on Gretir. He should be up there soon and is a scoundrel healer/melee dps
team names: Jawa incoporated and Nerf Herder union
I am going to give this another week. By next week, if we do not have enough to fill two ops groups, we will return to a single ops group with the original group.
For tonight, whoever is on can form up a group and go, or just do whatever they want. I will see how sign ups go throughout the week. Next week, if we have enough people and are still missing certain roles, then I will devise a setup using secondary specs to create the ops groups. So, make sure that what you are signed up as is something you are willing to go as.
