I should point out that I don't think we should return to a BC-type culture, though I have fond memories of it.The big problem now is that Blizzard is trying to give us BC-type content while maintaining a Wrath-type culture. This mismatch is leading to serious problems, especially with PUGs and the LFG tool. What we need to do is switch over to a Cataclysm culture and Cataclysm content, but I'm not sure what that would entail. A couple obvious suggestions are (1) let us have a cross-realm friends list so we can actually run with people again after meeting them via LFG; (2) scrap the current Justice/Valor points system...or at least the aspects of it that encourage us to try and run lots of heroics as a chore, rather than because we enjoy it. If the main point of the points system is to give people a path to gear up for raiding, then give us an alternate path. If the main point is to get people grouping and running dungeons for the fun of it, then give us some other incentive, along the lines of more interesting rewards for guild runs (to encourage social activity) or more interesting novelty rewards for dungeon runs (to encourage people to run them for fun rather than just for gear).
