xyem: I just find this amusing to read:

"Forum rules and regulations, Link"
"Frequently asked questions, answered by the community, Link"
"Don't be rude, introduce yourself, Link!"

Anyway, can my giveaway be put under "Community games, puzzles, and fun stuff"?
Sure... the main thread, right?

KavazovAngel: Sure... the main thread, right?
Unless you want to change it every week, that's probably the best!

It is not a problem, but I'll add a link for the main thread if that's okay?

Thiev: Not a 'community server' per se, but might be worth adding Guild Wars guild under that section.
Should I link to the first post in that thread, or to the one you posted?

The whole thread is in general about GW, so I think the linked post would be better, as it contains specific info about the guild.

Yeah, it's probably best to link there anyway as it explains what is going on :)

Added it, but what realm / server is the guild on? Or does GW not have that kind of stuff?

There are districts but in case of guild it does not matter as you can switch districts whenever you want with no any penalty etc. It only matters when you want to meet somebody to make party, then you need to find the right district. That's all.

OK, thanks for the reply.

To all others, please suggest threads that need to be included.
!WOW! An excellent post, way to take charge of the situation! Thanks a lot for some clarification, I wish you were here earlier!

EDIT:
This is why I love this forum so much!
At the risk of sounding too fanboyish-->

Gog > Steam+everyone else.

How about adding gamertags topic? Or one for Steam, I don't know which one is more popular.

It would be nice to have a unified place for everything account / profile / gamertag related.
Updated Minecraft's IP address. Thanks to reaver894.
Added SteamGifts website and forum thread.
Two threads I would suggest adding:

GOG Source Ports: http://www.gog.com/en/forum/general/gog_source_ports/page1 (These are either source ports or engine remakes, as apposed to just mods like in the other threads)

The Free Software List: http://www.gog.com/en/forum/general/the_free_software_list/page1 (a list of useful, good, free software. I'm not sure where navagon went, because there have been a few suggested additions since the last update.)
