Keep reading, you obviously haven't found the right stickies yet.
Do keep in mind, for as many "Adam Alexander read this or die" threads I've read, I haven't stumbled on anything remotely similar to what I'm suggesting...or guiding principles
I'm curious what threads you might have been reading, YMAS is for comedy, and Trollshido is for outright garbage, but otherwise there are several excellent forums with information and advice from people with years of experience.
Do keep in mind, that either you're pandering to each other, or you're trying to help people. I don't care which one you're doing. But, if you're going to dress youself in the wool of assistance, doesn't it seem unusual that a guy who's read a couple hundred threads here hasn't found it helpful? But, quite the contrary?
