Here's what I have in mind right now, but this isn't set in stone:
- Existing WotLK and beta Cataclysm threads will be locked at some point between 4.01 release and Cataclysm release.
- 3 Compendium threads, one for each spec. These will be the usual exhaustive summary of current knowledge.
- A sticky FAQ post akin to the current one - basic instructions and answers. Ideally these will be written/maintained by the Compendium authors, but I'm also willing to help with the editing here.
- A sticky Simple Questions/Simple Answers thread to catch questions that aren't answered by the FAQ. Ideally, holes in the FAQ can be filled in by keeping an eye on what gets asked here.
- Other threads for specific tools (Ret's Rawr module, other sims), encounter-specific discussion (like the Rogue one here), or other distinct topics can be created at the poster's discretion.
