Reference Threads Finder

Postby Andy E. Nystrom » Fri Jan 22, 2016 10:58 pm

This thread was created by Andy E. Nystrom on CxPulp, 06-28-2015, 07:17 PM.

The following isn’t meant to be a Best Of list but rather how to find threads dealing with specific bits of information to make it easy to find some particular bit of data (without creating a ton of Sticky threads). The person in charge of the thread noted. I’ve left out data that’s just a list of Tables of Contents and the like.

I think the poster/pin-ups thread probably deserves to be listed in the Raw Data section.

I had a feeling I was missing at least one. And of course it was the one I had only just updated, sigh. Will add in a moment.

Added in the previous overlooked Marvel Legacy thread and updated links to threads that have been moved over. While CxPulp still hasn't gone dark (I guess figuring out exactly when an Incursion will destroy everything isn't an exact science) I've removed the CxPulp links to keep the traffic here. Don't want anyone to post to CxPulp and then have the post vaporized before I see it.

Currently reformatting the Non-Marvel Handbooks thread. One thing that came up that I previously missed because I wasn't checking in on that thread all the time is, there was some question as to what does and does not belong in that thread. My official ruling in all such cases: check this thread for whom the "thread owner" is. They have the final call as to whether something counts. So in the case of Non-Marvel, Stuart started it for a project he's working on and hasn't relinquished it, so he's the go-to person for that particular thread and so on. Other people can make suggestions but they have the final call (actually strictly speaking Stuart can overrule everybody, but as a general rule, use the go-to people here).
