    Default Need members' help to compile a 'master' thread of common threads

    This is something I'd thought about in the past, but as it was time intensive to do it all by myself it never got started.

    I was thinking it may be useful to have a thread where people can quickly see an answer to some of the repeatedly asked questions on here. You know the ones, like will TC work on my car etc. Those questions will have a thread (often threads) where there are posts that definitely answer the question.

    I know there is the How 2 section which people should search in first, and obviously the search feature too, but often people don't search (tut tut! lol) or the keywords they've entered don't get the right matches.

    The idea of this thread isn't to replicate all the threads in the How 2 section - although that had also given me another fab idea! - it's a master thread that can simply be linked to in any new thread where a repeated, common question is asked and has been listed in here.

    So, if folks fancy adding any links to threads that they think fall under that umbrella then please post them here. As we get a reasonable number we'll merge them into one post so that we don't have all the links spread over several pages.

    Can I ask that when you post a link you do it do that the link is a descriptive text, rather than just the full forum URL.

    i.e. Thread of list of answers to common questions i.e. this one.

    Yep, some of those are in the How 2 section and you'll see I've started a thread about indexing that but post up anything you think is relevant and we can compile/edit/start another thread once we see what's been posted.
