What about a tank columnist? With the advent of the dungeon finder we've gotten a small influx of tank articles, but its lacking focus. "Tanks get faster ques", "Dont piss off your tank", and "ARGH! this pisses me off when DPS do this when Im tanking" (the last being my favorite). Wow.com is a great place to kill time and allow less experienced players glean information and improve their play style/technique. A tanking article (similar to Raid RX), would give young tanks a great route to learning from the experience/mistakes of those before.

That's a great idea. I am leveling a prot warrior and I would very much like some sort of primer for leveling. I can go to tankspot or ask the tanks in my guild, but it's alway nice to have another post I can read dedicated to the subject.

It's a good point. It's rather the equivalent of Blizzard's role forums, to complement the class forums. There's a healer (OK, raid healer) column, but no role equivalents elsewhere.The one article I'd love to see is a role interaction piece, but it's difficult to see who would write it."To the tanks: here's how to be nice to a) your healer, b) your melee DPS, c) your ranged DPS."To the healers: here's how to be nice to a) your tank, b) your melee DPS, c) your ranged DPS."To melee DPS..."etc.Each role has its own quirks, ranging from "tanks, please don't drag around or re-orient mobs unnecessarily, us melee DPS are parked behind them for a reason" to "everyone, if you can Death Grip or interrupt a mob into the tank's melee range you'll have a friend for life".

This is a good idea and something we'll consider for the future.
