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.

Tagball's If you were Emperor or Emress of your School

This is great thread for new and old espcaist. I didn't know we had some of these helpful groups and threads. The Escpaist Badge Thread will be quite helpful and informative

Great job Sleekgiant ;)

Nice work, Sleeky. :D
Nice to see an update to this thread.

A suggestion, maybe add Portal Maniac's TIEM review to the list of TIEM interviews. Just so the whole set is there.

I was wondering when someone would make a new one of these. Very helpful, thanks.

Sassafrass:
Nice work, Sleeky. :D

I'd try to find Root and NeonBob's, but they seems to have disappeared into the depths of the forum ocean.

And also why not put the User group as a whole. With our projects we need all the attention we can get, especially 8 Ball. >.>

Wow Nice. This will prove some use in the future... Thank you Sleekgiant.

Did you include this very own thread in your catalogue of threads? Because it deserves to be in there. IMPLOSION!

I vote Necro threading my "What would you do if you were emperor or empress of your school" thread. It's....special to me, seeing as how it was my first thread AND first post. Sadly, it didn't live a very long life.

As the biggest User Made User Group and dare I say the most active 'clan', The Escapist Team Fortress 2 Group should be on the clans or groups section. :)

Very nice, Sleek. I've bookmarked this. Thank you.

Sassafrass:

I'll add that up there with the other TIEM items, thankies.

I have their interviews already so......I'll link your group next :P

Thanks Sleekgiant :D

I'll be adding more groups tonight when I get back but keep up the suggestions :D

Also if someone feels like digging up Member Spotlights, I'll make a section for those as well as group spotlights.

Great work. Nice to see the update.

This was good to see.

I was surprised to see "Behind the Avatar" up there, I'm honoured.

I don't have a link for it handy, but I think Lost in the Void's Guide To GMing deserves to be in there. It's a great thread and is really tough to keep at the top where the new players can see it.

Sleekgiant:

Pssssst can I get my User Group added to the list? For all the many Doctor Who fans out there please xD

Nice to see an updated Community Thread

PayJ567:

Thank you there :D

Good job, Sleek.

Sleekgiant:
Well of course its up there, quite a significant thread

I guess over 70 pages isn't bad for Off-Topic thread.

Not enough for that bloody Inferno badge though!

Sleekgiant:

Wait! What? Missed that ^.^ Thanks

X3 Its all good, remember keep up the suggestions.

Great work, Sleek.

This is only a suggestion, but could you put Fox KITSUNE's Furrehs group, my Catgirl Lovers group and Milo Windby's Catboy Club in the User Groups list?

Lambi:
Great work, Sleek.

This is only a suggestion, but could you put Fox KITSUNE's Furrehs group, my Catgirl Lovers group and Milo Windby's Catboy Club in the User Groups list?

Added all of them :D

Yay! :D

Once again, great work.

I has a suggestion!

Add The Organisation to the user group list. Just look into it and you would find out why I think it deserves to be up there.

EDIT: Nevermind.

Sleekgiant:

Here you go, my good sir. If all goes well....my thread could be the first officially necro-resurrected thread....and my plan will come to fruition...HAHAHAHAHAHA...yes.

Furburt even makes a reference to Maxthereaper, THAT'S how old it is.

Also, I keep getting you and Sharphoe mixed up. Only because of the avatar.

Mm. While I see you have gone through most of Inverse Skies' previous thread, I feel you have left out some very important and note-worthy threads out. Such as:
For Role Playing:
NewClassic's I Bet He's Cockney II: Rise of the Machines thread. While the last post was in March, yes, it was very note-worthy to the community. The original thread moreso, one might say, but alas, that thread is now long gone.

For Community Thread:
WhoolPurse's Post a Picture of Yourself thread. While it isn't the latest one from LordCuthberton, it is 26 pages of people's pictures... if they're still there... It was one of the biggest and one of the first of said picture threads (not the first, mind, but still one of the first), if I recall correctly, and, as such, worth noting here, I believe.

Edit: However, one must take the time to congratulate you, Sleekgiant for taking over this immense thread. Keep up the good work, threads like these end up eating a lot of your time away... constantly needing updates... But yes. My hat is off to you, good sir.

There needs to be more about the RP section, try and gain a little more interest maybe some new RPers. Perhaps mention such notable RPs as:

Avatar Adventures (the longest running Escapist RP and most wacky): http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/362.101127-The-Escapist-Avatar-Adventure-An-Open-RP-Now-Re-Opened

The Unknown: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/362.117578-The-Unknown-A-Game-of-Fear-Ignorance-and-Adventure#2227442

Just to name a couple.

Wow, I had no idea half those threads existed.

It's good when people make this sort of collection of things from the forums. Well done!

I'd like to suggest Labyrinth's 'Le Raconteur En Vous' thread A repository for the community's anecdotes.

Diagonal Horizontality:

If only Surge was still going, also what happened to your Game of Life 2.0 and maybe Atulon's Pass should be added.

Yes I've heard Surge was quite epic, and Atulon's Pass is certainly a good example of great writing, that Yorg let me tell you!

As for Game of Life 2.0, *sigh* I wish it was still going, but Aqualung disappeared off the face of the earth just when our characters were discovering their love for each other... seeing as how I loved my character so much it depressed me to hang around the thread, so I stopped GMing :/ It went on for a while but without a proper GM it kind of died :( I wish Aqua wouldn't have left!

EDIT- Some of your links/bbcode in the RP section are wrong, just so ya know ;D

Well I have an idea is we'll make an RP archive section for all the old abandoned RPs that were significant

EDIT- Some of your links/bbcode in the RP section are wrong, just so ya know ;D

Thanks for telling me, gets hard to keep up with it all some times :P

Thank you Sleek for adding my RP guide thread. People must note that it has expanded past character creation and now focuses on GMing, RP types, and soon Advanced RP theory if me and Yorg get off our Lazy Butts and type that up
