    I can sticky it for now. Thanks for the work to compile this. TS / EarlyMon or the other mods might want to modify it later, but this should suffice for now.

    Thank you, I had actually talked to Drex about this earlier to help keep relevant info easily available and still leave room to sticky new and important threads as they come along since few stickies permanently remain in that position.
