I’m sure I missed a load more!


This is pretty cool.


Thanks :D


A lot more poetry threads cataloged here:

Maybe “images” and “photography” should be merged into one category, since most of the posts in the images thread are anyways photos.

Note sure what category these fall under, but I think that they are quite notable discussions:


Some other thread suggestions:


Bugcat: the cause and solution to a cluttered forum! The things you do are awesome :+1:, thank you.


This thread should be pinned at the top of the forum for all to see along with FAQs etc


How about we split the list more clearly into Go related topics and other topics?


I like it as it is.


Two more suggestions




< coronavirus thread not here >

you are optimist


Darn thought this was a sewing tutorial


Here you go, @benjito


Go memes winning on click-throughs :smiley: :partying_face:


What you did there… I see it :wink:


The second one is already on there, under Puzzles. Adding Go lessons in broad strokes.


This one is also missing, perhaps a sign of pessimism?

So, you are pessimistic about its future, and it was not just an oversight?

There are plenty of other threads in the list that are not older than one year.
