The most help I can be is to Google but, it seems you've done that with outdated results. I'm not too sure why someone would want to go through all the trouble of essentially making boss mods using WA when there's already fully extensive boss mods out there.

a good example is klaxxi and siegecrafter, boss mods go crazy. there is one warning after another but often you need only specif once. For Example if you are target from the laser then a Weakaura could be "move left". DBM/BW only make a sound but you dont know exactly what for

Well when they did that whole 'kill a project for a simple rename' thingy they left they curseforge forums behind.
http://www.wowace.com/addons/weakauras/forum/ was a good resource.

That's probably still your best bet other than looking for dedicated class /role sites (many have a weakauras, powerauras section)

That link gives a 404, think you meant http://www.wowace.com/addons/weakauras-2/forum/ ?

Wow, and they didn't even do the slightest bit of merging. No docs in the Pages, none of the posts from the old forums...

I still used the original Weakauras forums when I needed to figure something out, since the documentation pages were incomplete in some places.

To explain a little on what happened, the WA author created a new repo (with all that comes with it) for WeakAuras2, rather than just using the pre-existing WeakAuras project page and upgrading the version to 2.0. This caused a lot of confusion - people didn't know to switch to a different addon to upgrade, some had both installed at once and were confused why, etc, etc. Now, the old WeakAuras project is gone, so that users only see the one.

Yeah it's definitely understandable why the pages were removed, and am honestly surprised it took this long to to so. I just wish some of the info was copied over to the new project.

I've been working a lot more on fine-tuning some of my more advanced WA strings, and I was planning on putting a bunch of them in a big post here in WI or on reddit.com/r/wowui, which I frequent as well. If I do put them in a new thread here in WI, I plan on including screenshots and asking others for their strings as well.
I too, am tired of scouring the webernets in search of others' WA strings. Wonder why the WA creators/developers don't just start their own repository/database site where everyone can post WA strings and vote up/down other strings. Then there would finally be an absolute place to find tons of good [and bad] WA strings.

Reddit sounds like a fairly awful place to post something you intend to be used as a permanent reference, unless you are a moderator in the subreddit and can add your information to its wiki and/or put a link it the sidebar.

If you use BigWigs, disabling the warnings for things you don't care about is as simple as unchecking a checkbox. No idea what the situation is for DBM as I haven't used it other than very briefly back in the Burning Crusade.

Well really a forum post isn't much better. Will still get old and pages and pages that people will need to sift through to find new updates and individual strings that commenters post. Honestly don't know what the best online medium would be just yet...but I like /r/wowui because you can vote things up and down so you can see how useful other people find your content. Helps you stay motivated to add more.

A forum post can be stickied, though, and in my experience the search function on Reddit is not always useful.

I'm personally a big fan of doing something like what the Warlock solo community have done.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...&rm=full#gid=0

Using Google Spreadsheets will let you set up categories (such as classes, and then you can add subcategories such as Resources, Auras, etc...), add trusted editors and if you couple it with something like pastebin or github gists you can easily get plaintext strings for users to import.

You can add pictures to preview too, either as just a link or as an actual part of the spreadsheet.

That Google Doc is pretty cool, but they really need to lock it down from anyone being able to modify it or they'll get trolled.
Cool idea but i still think a website resource would be best.

Which one? The second one is a private copy I made to make changes, the first one is a public one AFAIK.

You could have a team of trusted moderators keeping an eye on things and rely on the community to do most of the testing, bug reporting and submitting. Opening up a forum thread where people can submit new auras they made or found is an easy way for you to get information to put into a spreadsheet that people can easily view without trudging through pages on pages of auras.

You could do this in loads of ways but I feel like this is one of the best, and it is how I would go about it. The simplicity of it weighs up for the lack of versatility compared to a website.

Another suggestion would be something like a wiki page maybe. Follows the same logic in a slightly different format.

I'm excited no matter what direction you go in, as I'm an avid WA user myself.
