Best of the Forums – September

In case you weren’t sure what to expect from the title, “Best of the Forums” is exactly what it sounds like.

Every month I’ll take some of the most noteworthy threads from the forums and post them here for your convenience. I realize that different things appeal to different people, so I’ll do my best to post a broad range of subjects. I personally enjoy “DIY” and “How To” topics, so expect to see plenty of things along those lines. Humor is also welcome – after all, who doesn’t want something to laugh at?


For this feature to maintain a quality selection of threads, I’m going to need some help from you and the rest of the forum users. Whenever you find a thread you feel is worth some extra attention, please give a link through my email or send me a private message – username “Zagi”. It truly only takes a second and I’ll be very grateful. So grateful in fact, that I might even buy you a cookie (probably not, but send me some links anyway to make sure). Check out these threads:
