Thanks fellas, i appreciate the comments and feedback!

 

As for

14 hours ago, EO said:

Should be pinned

I agree, however i had already reported each of my lists to get them pinned that i created this past week, and have been talking with Fallujah Medic through pm

and pinned threads right now from what i understand are being discussed, dont really know the details offhand although i have a slight idea.

              But instead of a pinned thread i have a better idea which i plan to implement this weekend.

Lastly signatures are limited to 10 urls so adding the other lists to my sig isn't going to work, so when i have this new "idea" of mine

implemented you guys will see it.

 

My goal with these lists is to save the community alot of time, and try to eliminate some of the extensive search, and this is part of the reason why

i wanted the lists on the forums here and not the wiki or somewhere i else.

For now i have some massive updates with alot of new content coming to all the existing lists, so stay tuned!
