Posted on Forum: UER Forum
This is a list of some of the best threads I could find on very commonly discussed topics. It's my attempt to consolidate and organize some of the treasure-trove of great information that is available for both new and experienced explorers on these forums, especially in the Rookie Forum.

About this List
This list is NOT meant to imply that it's in any way against the rules to discuss topics that have been done before! Sometimes fresh threads on old topics can bring in new information, and revitalize the conversation, especially if the other threads are archived, or if you have a slightly different angle to take on the topic. And hey, it's the Rookie Forum!

Most of the threads linked to here are in the rookie forum, but there are a few in other categories. I have made an effort to only include high-quality threads with serious responses. I have also deliberately excluded from this list any threads which are full member only, or hidden away in private boards, because I want this to be accessible for everyone. The best threads that I've linked to are in bold. Most of those are high-quality write-ups and guides written by experienced explorers for beginners.

If you have suggestions or contributions for this list, feel free to PM me about it. But don't be offended if I don't add everything you suggest. I want to keep this list somewhat concise so it's easy to find what you're looking for.

This will evolve over time as I, and the other mods, tweak and add to the list.

Enjoy!
