So, this is going to be pretty straightforward. Welcome to the Priest boards. Just laying the groundwork for what needs to be said, here.
Some rules, and clarifications for the long-time posters, as well as newcomers to our site.
1) Necro'ing isn't always a necro.
If you add something to a seemingly closed discussion, something that wasn't already said in that particular discussion, then by all means, please do.
2) Look at the first two pages before posting your own thread.
This one's more of a continuation of the first rule. If there's already a given thread on a topic, we don't need 3 more threads for "omg im oom". Threads will be locked without notice. Please.
Nonsense posts can be funny. Funny posts even in a serious thread can make coming to these boards actually amusing (Greatest part of my morning sometimes). But offensive garbage will not be tolerated. Non-constructive posts that hinder or derail discussions are not appreciated.
4) "Spec" Trolling
This will get you banned. So long as both specs are viable (Viable, not necessarily optimum), if someone is asking "How can I do this fight as <spec>" and looking for tips, tricks, or a couple talents to shift, answer in the context. I didn't tolerate "spec disc lolz" for Wrath, I won't tolerate "spec Holy" as an answer to Disc questions, now.
It's like the way it is because Blizzard likes it the way it is. It's powerful, it's stupid. It's lolwell. Whatever. But we are sick of the "Make Lightwell like ToC". You know why? Because we all made that noise a year and a half ago when we saw it the first time. We even got a blue response because the priest doesn't need another "fire and forget" spell. Don't like the spell? Fine, don't take it. But bringing up ToC is ban material, this is the only warning you'll get.
We have a couple stickies, and some really strong gems for posts. Please, use them. Infact, here's a list of all our helpful threads!

Marraphy did a good job of putting together a recommended smite variation for lower level zones, letting you stay in a variation of your healing spec to help queue for dungeons while you're at it.
If someone has a shadow variant they'd like to make, feel free to do so.

Danner, yet again, goes out of his way to give us the numbers on those little blue bars and what makes them tick.
