Protip: don't have people dead at the end of conclave or they don't get credit for the kill for some reason. I really hope we didn't get jewed out of that kill, but w/e it's an easy boss.

I think that Nagolnik page he linked is something he made up on his own server, at least that's what it looks like to me. I was referring to major tracking pages like Guildox and Wowprogress.
I have no personal vested interest in how the progression thread is maintained beyond the guild I am in, I'm not an active raider and will not be able to raid for most likely this entire expansion. I am okay with doing what the majority wants to do as far as tracking progression. It seems right now the majority either has no opinion, or just doesn't want to make a decision. The quote you pulled from Wowprogress is new to me, but to be honest I was not looking for their reasoning behind using one chart for progression.
The other night I started looking at other realm forums to see what everyone else is doing. Most of the major realms out there have no progression thread at all, so maybe the concept of tracking progression through a thread is a bit outdated now.
While I feel that there should be a clear distinction between 10 man and 25 man guilds for the sake of progression, it seems as if Blizzard does not want that to be the case. The sharing of realm firsts between raid sizes totally came out of right field. I think with the stance that Blizzard is taking, the raiding "community" as we knew it is dead. I think 10 man raids are going to become the mainstream format, although not necessarily the most prestigious.
Maybe it's the old school in me, but I liked the list of who has down what and who the current "top guild" is. Yes, I made that on my site myself, it was just an example/temporary thing unless people really liked it. I liked the fact that I could customize it within my limits of programming knowledge and have some added extras like links to guild sites for apps etc. It is a way for us to encompass all the progression threads and guild lists into one more attractive post.
Just a thought...
There will always be a top guild, it's just Blizzard is trying to change the way you define that. If you combine 10 and 25 man, it would be Life Professionals. If you based it strictly on 25 man kills, Demise.

I know it's a bit tacky, but we could always have a progression thread that has a link to an external site(one where we can use a format to set up like our old progression thread format) and use it that way. Not really sure what website, something like Livejournal or something where html n the like can be used to make something organized.
Having seperated threads for 10m and 25m should still be tracked, personally. Blizzard might have turned it so they share lockouts, but I still feel that achieving the kill on 10m and also on 25m are two completely different accomplishments.
