All I would add is suggestions for blogs to follow. I really like what these have to say and add to my knowledge of what we like to do:

I’d also like to add a few blogs (in addition to the FABULOUS list Eric made above!)…
I don’t know where this appears on the site, but one helpful hint about posting your scores to the website/whiteboard includes using some shorthand:
Rx – “As Prescribed” (WOD performed according to posted weights, reps and movement standards)
# – used to replace “pounds” for weights
PR – Personal Record
1RM – One Rep Max
There are other abbreviations used as well, but you’ll pick them up as you go (T2B = Toes to Bar, PU = Push/Pull Up, etc.).
Also, the website is really helpful for keeping track of progress over time through the use of Trackbacks (links to the last time a WOD was done at the gym) and the search bar. For example, if you see that Push Press is coming up in a WOD but don’t know what weight to do, search for “Push Press” and you can see what you did last time or gauge the weights used by athletes of comparable proficiency.
I think this should be a mini-post in itself, because I suspect unfamiliarity with our shorthand is THE barrier preventing some of the newer people from posting their scores.
