    Evening all :)

    We all know TWF is fantastic and the wealth of knowledge on here is unrivalled but I have noticed that a large amount of good information gets lost in the depths of the forum. I know that many of the top posts are 'stickied' but obviously Antony does not want there be too many of these sticky posts as it will just clutter up the forum sections.

    My solution is to list out all the sticky and useful guides that I could find and database them all in one handy place. What is listed below is only the tip of the iceberg but I have run out of steam for tonight so will post what I have done so far and will update it over the coming days.

    Once complete I will open it up to you guys to see if there are any good ones I have missed.

    I have rather neglected this database over the past few weeks as I have been super busy. If anyone knows of any good posts/guides that have cropped up on the forum in recent weeks let me know and I will add them :)
