Update: I have to thank Aethien for this wonderful guide for an FAQ. You will notice right now that it will look a lot like his WOTLK FAQ. I will be in the process of updating his guide to be current with the up and coming Cataclysm expansion. I have changed a lot of the more obvious stuff. I will need to go back through later and take out what is needed and not needed.

Keeping the FAQ up to date:
If you notice anything outdated, please PM me or post it in this thread (preferably with corrected text).
It's a good bit of text so there's probably a couple places where it's not correct anymore and without help it's likely to stay that way.
With your help we can keep the sticky up to date and correct.
