Mar 4th 2010 3:42PM A major issue is the sheer size of many of these raid organizations. Taken as an example, Leftovers (mentioned in the article and in some comments here) has a raiding population of over 2000 active characters every week (and many of those characters don't run every week, which means the number of actives is much, much higher). Many SGAs (Small Guild Alliances) on various servers have similar numbers -- at a minimum. That's just plain unwieldy in the context of a normal guild framework.
Last I recall, you can't even see more than 500 toons in a guild list. Granted, they're changing that mechanism, but the point still stands. A raiding organization which exists outside the normal guild framework, with 2000+ active raiders is one thing. I can't imagine trying to shoehorn it into a normal framework. And that's completely apart from the considerations which led many people to join these organizations in the first place.

Actually, you can just have Skada toggle to threat mode in combat, and then return to whatever mode you prefer when out of combat. One mod, one window -- it's in the config options :-)
