One thing that jumped out at me in K's letter was that there's no scheduling going on. I've found that, even in small, casual guilds it's important that people know at least a week ahead of time what raids are going to be run on which nights. It helps current members with planning and preparation--both in terms of real life (commitment scheduling) and in-game (getting consumables stocked, etc). It also helps a lot with recruiting to be able to say things like (in the case of my guild) "We run Gruul's on Friday nights, Kara on Saturday and (if not cleared) on Sunday."We're very casual...there are no attendance requirements or anything like that. We're still struggling to get 25 to run Gruul's on a consistent basis (even with a guild alliance). But we have fun and when we do run things, we generally do pretty well. So adding a little bit of structure probably wouldn't destroy the casual nature K's guild currently has. And it might help get the core group to grow a little more before Wrath.

'I've found that, even in small, casual guilds it's important that people know at least a week ahead of time what raids are going to be run on which nights.'This is VERY true. Our Kara runs are always scheduled a week in advance so that people know what is going on, how much time to set aside and how to prepare for it.
