Did any of those old links get broken from a software upgrade, or forum reorg? We might want to check other places... or use Google to search them out. I will look at some more stuff there tomorrow.

Otherwise, I feel like that link is more of a liability, because another reorg can lose the thread (like what happened already), and lots of great content may be overlooked because we picked the thread that was not as active or meaningful as another. I think hierarchical organization of content like this is kind of limiting, anyways.
In the absence of tags, how should we decide which forum threads should be linked from Appropedia, or anywhere else? I feel like they should be somehow special, like a "sticky thread", or maybe in some cases an article is more appropriate. I guess we could all just use our best judgment... hope I'm not muddying the waters too much.

any thoughts on good approaches to this?
