How many times have we seen people post links to threads in the Lit Fora informing others that either a topic is discussed elsewhere or information may be found somewhere else concerning points raised within a thread?
I know we already have a 'Search' function and useful as it is it doesn't present threads in an alphabetical order or indeed in subject order.
So I thought to myself, 'How about an index of topics for each forum' []
I thought I would try this forum first seeing as, to my mind, it is probably the most important.

This thread is purely an index of all the threads to be found in this forum. To find out how to use this forum be sure to visit ~ Library Council FAQ ~

I have divided the index up into several sections and have further divide some of these sections up in sub-sections for ease of use.

Great job, Wetwang!
The Search function requires that you know what you're looking for, and some of the exact terms used in the discussion.
In this index you may recognise your topic even if you're not sure of what search terms to use.

And you may also discover some topics that you weren't aware of []

Cheers people []
I've now divided up the 'Peoples & Creatures' section into the respective races seeing as that was a hugely long section [] I have also renamed the 'Flora & Fauna' section to reflect the true nature of that section and it's now called 'The Nature of Arda' []
Oh! I also nicked some spear deviders from Dolmed's 'Maps' thread, I'm sure he won't mind []

I'm baffled that none of us have noticed this yet.

Edit: Just out of curiosity, Wetty, what did you think of the "work in progress" style of dividing questions into similar topics?

Most bizzare! [] i just did a search on that Gandalf thread and nothing came up [] I can only assume that the thread has been deleted so I've removed the link from the Index.
Thanks for pointing it out though [] []
