Per forum members request I have "trimmed" down the number of topics actually listed under "Important Topics" here:
for easier layout reading, because some of us still use lower desktop screen resolutions.
All project authors, creators + maintainers:
Please do *not* create a new forum topic/thread every time you update your project(s) or whenever you post a new update/edition/build/release/version/etc.
This way all pinned/"stickified" ones will *always* be listed here.
Instead, I suggest [if you are the topic creator] you:
- edit + update the 1st post of each topic;
- add the date + the new version/build [if appropriate] into each topic subtitle;
to let every1 know when/why you posted a new update/edition/build/release/version/etc.
But if for any reason you need to create a new topic, please PM me with the new URL so I can add it to this list.
Thanks for understanding, and keep up your outstanding work.
