Back in the earlier days of WoW I remember being in a guild that would jointly run 40 man raids with another guild. Things ran pretty smoothly, drama free, for a while. Eventually the arrangement fell apart, and I don't remember over what, it may have had something to do with loot distribution. I am strongly considering starting my own guild but really don't want to make it a 40 man guild, so my options are to either raid with another guild as a benchwarmer (usually both guilds have issues with this, the hosting guild always views the fill as an outsider and not deserving of loot) or run 40 man content jointly with another guild. Are there ways to make the joint raid setup work, and be fair to both parties? As much as I'd hate using DKP (I've always prefered raiding with a small guild and just letting everyone agree on loot - it works very well once you find a good group of people to play with who aren't greedy and are level headed) or ...loot concil...I may not be able to experience raids in Wildstar.
