So please feel free to add suggestions you think should be a part of this community thread, as I'm sure I've missed many examples which would be fantastic to be here.
If possible please also provide a link because the search button can be hard to use at times.
I've also added descriptions of what the thread is next to each one. If anyone would like me to change what that message is, please let me know and I shall do so.
In conjunction with what Wilsonscrazybed said below, if you would like your thread added to the official Escapist Community Map please let one of the moderators know and they might be able to arrange it for you. If not, please bookmark this thread and use that as your browsing point, it's really a matter of personal opinion which one you would like to use.
Necro Thread Suggestions
Thanks to Berethond for this idea.
The lastest suggestion is to introduce a section for the necroing of threads, threads which crop up often (ie favorite movie, what instrument do you play etc) which rather than creating a new repeat thread should just be necroed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
