Wow, I haven't updated this in a while. Time to dust this thing off, like Betty White going to a swinger's party.
Flex-groups: We run flex groups on Thursday nights. There is usually something going on Friday & Saturday nights, also. More often than not, it's flex, for those that can still stand that much SoO.
Loot Philosophy: Worrying about a loot system = fail. Worrying about downing bosses = you have chance at loot. We've done pretty well with our system, which is main spec > off spec > crafting orbs for the guild bank and/or transmog. We'll also prioritize someone's 2nd or 4th tier piece, over a tier piece that only makes 1, 3, or 5 tier pieces.
Not-set-in-stone Recruitment Policy: We don't recruit for raid spots, directly... usually... Typically, we're looking for people who are happy to be backup raiders, and work to keep their gear/skill up as much as possible. From there, the folks who show skill & consistency in attendance wind up finding their way into permanent raid spots.
Once we go into the new expansion, since Blizz is fixing the scaling of flex & normal, with group size, it'll be even easier to get a permanent raid spot, for those folks who really want one.
Guild/Raid Personality: IM is mainly comprised of old farts and casual raiders, altoholics, achievement hunters, and pet/mount collectors. There's little to no organized PvP activity. We spend most of our time, sitting in vent, and complaining about kids on the lawn/the alliance/AH prices/bunions/etc.
For raids, we're fairly casual. Our goal is to down everything in heroic, by the end of the expansion. We're not interested in being the first guild to do so. Even so, when the stars occasionally align, and we have a good team, we start having decent progression.
Things people have said they DO like: Aside from the obvious, of getting a daily dose of Embermoon, we've had people tell us that we're "fun." Then we shot them, because we suspected they were going to try and sell us some Amway.
Embermoon's completely objective, and not-in-any-way-subjective opinion of <Imaginary Monsters>: We're not as good as spending a week in Barbados, with the Brazilian bikini team, but we're definitely better than spending a week in a Turkish prison.

Have had several good people join. RL issues, work issues, school issues keep popping up, so the roster is never 100% stable.
If the first post sounds like we'd be a fit for you, please hit us up, in-game.
Danke. :) And, thanks for reminding me to update the original thread.
We're slowly but surely making our way through ToT. We'd still love to talk with any interested folks, as if they're good and consistent, then the chances of them having a main raid spot are good.
You just have to be willing to listen to me recite Vogon poetry, in between boss pulls.
TY for that. We actually just (finally) downed him, last night. We did a full night or two, of attempting 4-4-1-1, but with our comp (2 hunters & 1-2 mages), we settled on 3-2-3-2, and it seemed to work out better for us. Donks was awesome on calling abilities out on the last phase, so that the rest of us could be baddies and ignore DBM.
Updated the top post for 12/12, and notes on our plans for flex-raiding in 5.4.
They didn't hear, me, of course, because they were watching Matlock and Golden Girls re-runs. We don't use a loot "system." We just do main spec > off spec rolls.
WOO HOO MATLOCK! Just because you only watch "Murder She Wrote" doesn't make you a spring chicken Ember!
Bump for Duskwood raid survivors !

Look, just because some people can't appreciate the genius of Angela Lansbury, don't hate on my shows, miss "Walker, Texas Ranger."
Well, naturally not. Nothing of her dead swan tripe survived the destruction of Earth. It is noteworthy, that I care enough to never recite the following offering, from Grunthos, the Flatulent, as I would be remorse at poetry-induced internal hemorrhaging and leg-gnawing.

Ode to a Small Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Midsummer Morning
Putty. Putty. Putty.
Green Putty - Grutty Peen.
Grarmpitutty - Morning!
Pridsummer - Grorning Utty!
Not even a particularly
Nice shade of green.
As I lick my armpit and shall agree,
That this putty is very well green
