Nice idea canvey!! :thup:

It wasn't really my idea. I noticed in dafuge's "Welcome to the CSE" sticky that one was needed so I made one. I believe we had one before the shift to the new software. In case you were wondering, the threads are ordered from number of replies from the time of writing this up, and new ones get tagged on the end. I'll probably delete the ones from this post that go dead for a long time.
