Hello STT fans. The goal of this thread is to give players a one-stop shop for all the best information these forums have to offer. Whether you’re a new player who needs tips for starting out, or an old player who is looking for a breakdown of the best crew, this thread aims to be useful. I will break things down into categories, so that the list can grow over time. I have included the usernames of the original authors for all the threads, because they deserve credit for their hard work and dedication to our community.

Since Becca didn’t get to it before the weekend, I went ahead and made this thread to help clean up the first page of “The Bridge.” I will expand on this over time, and make additions/remove out-dated links as necessary.

An index is fine.

But I don’t agree with taking down the stickies and just stickying your index. Just adds extra work to find the threads, plus most of mine will usually be on the front page anyways, this will just cause them to jump around a bit.

Better solution is to make a guides sub forum, and have that stickied/prominently linked here, and the guides moved to said forum.

I agree with the yellow bit, but this is a way to try and solve the problem in the mean-time.
They have not said anything about whether they prefer this type of index or a subforum.

For the first part: It’s not really extra work. Simply click the thread, and find the information you want, sorted by type of information, rather than scanning all the stickies to find which one actually contains the information you are looking for. Assuming everyone uses the search is a mistake, as most people simply do not.

For the time being, I’ve taken off all the stickies and stickied this. Creating new subforums for this and fleets is something I will be working on after PAX East.

Thank you for creating this! Unimatrix also reached out to me to see if he could help, so thanks to you both for helping out!

It is extra work. 2 extra steps to be exact.

Before:
1. Go to bridge (usually I do thru the chromebar in 1 click)
2. Click appropriate guide.

Now:
1. Go to bridge
2. Click guides sticky
3. Click appropriate guide
4. Get annoyed by annoying redirection script which makes no sense since this is an internal link and click to proceed.

Guides forum would fix it.

Don’t think this was such a crisis that you should of left the forums like this Becca. They feel empty/blank now with extra work to get what we want. Could of just waited tell you had time to set up a guides forum.

I hate that stupid thing. I wonder if something can be done about that...

Yes, number 4 is annoying, and I eagerly await that fix as well…

That said… I am getting quite tired of you poking at everything I say like I am some kind of pariah. Step off your horse for a while, would you? I have said… I ALSO would prefer a guides forum!! READ what I say instead of just getting angry every time I disagree with you about some tiny thing.

All the links in this will need to be replaced because they don’t point to the correct place any longer. :\

All links updated to the new address format, and tested as working.
Bonus: Links now directly open the thread, without having to deal with the “external link” page.
