Oh, excellent. This is pretty much the exact situation my guild is in; I'm the raid leader for my casual guild, and I've always been curious as to whether I've been "doing it right". Very interested to see your opinions on the matter, and am looking forward to picking up advice for raid leading for a casual guild. Keep it coming!

Great column! I'm probably a bit more than casual at this point, but I'm definitely not hardcore either, so this is definitely worth keeping in mind. I just wanted to add a little something I've learnt from my new guild: automate as much as humanly possible. Its going to be very hard for somebody to dedicate a significant amount of time to scheduling raids or organising DKP, but if you use Group Calendar or GEM for raid organising, and online DKP organisers (we use gsdkp but I suspect there are a bunch of other alternatives around) it makes for a better experience all around without anybody having to spend hours organising. Of course, then you have the issue of getting everybody to download/sign up, but thats something else entirely...
