Nominate favorite topics

Post by fgagnon » 2010 May 18, 15:11

Please post here your nominations for favorite most useful topics from other x2 forums.
When ( if? ) a consensus develops I will move the topic(s) into this forum.

here's an easy heuristic: all forum posts with huge number of views must be something to write home about :)

I spent some time with that yesterday, paging through about 1500 topics, in hopes it would be a simple as moving everything above a [tbd] threshold.
But the majority of high-count threads were about bugs that have been resolved.  I plan to continue with this as time permits over the next week and will move the ones I think are worthy, using my own estimation of popularity and/or being useful reference material.

I like this idea, nominating threads, better than trying to use high post or view counts...

If you could search for links to other threads you might get something useful... a thread that has been linked a few times to is probably a good one.

OK, I spent the last two days culling through over 4000 topics in the Pro forum and came up with a total of 19 threads that seem worthy of being moved here either for their being popular or useful, and sometimes both.

If folks have others they consider worthy of being singled out, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
