    The idea is nice, but are we really using the stars rating for threads? Because I got the impression that the vast majority of threads doesn't receive any star ever; then the majority of starred threads have received a rating (usually 5 stars) by a single person; and finally the majority of starred threads which have been starred by more than one person, have been starred by two persons, usually the first person giving 5 stars, and the second person disagreeing and giving 1 star to compensate...

    Well that's why it's open to curation - I don't claim to know all the best threads. I'll update as suggestions and critiques come in. I really just wanted to pin 1 thing, but that wasn't a long term plan. So feel free to suggest improvements!

    Being behind on the UAs does not mean the ones that are in the thread won't be helpful. Unless you know a thread that has all of them collected, preferably with links to their ENworld discussions as well as the UA itself, I think that thread should stay.

    I also think that having threads like that linked in a pinned index like this increases the chance that they won't just die off.

    That's actually the opposite of what's happening recently.

    How do I know? Very simple: because my name is Harry Lime I've been 5 starring the threads that seem to get spiteful 1 star ratings.

    Haven't had a chance to read all of this one yet, but it seems like it should be on the list:

    It might be the opposite of my example, but it's another example of a rigged vote
    Laugh Satyrn laughed with this post
