    Very nice post with a ton of informative information. I really appreciate the fact that you approach these topics from a stand point of knowledge and information
    instead of the typical ďI thinkĒ mentality that you see so much on the internet these days.

    I add to it often, but it carries over year to year. I keep a separate updated list of monthly content prompts for the mod team, too.
