    the similar threads listed below don't have anything in common with this. two of them are talking about thread for sewing
    'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read. ― Mark Twain

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    Thanks Octo for all the hard work you put into this place.
    Thanks for the thanks.

    I'm rebuilding the similar thread index now. We'll see if the results are more relevant later tonight.

    I just noticed them and do find them interesting. That said, I guess they are useful for my purposes.

    I have always found them incredibly incredibly useful, not just on HF but all forums I visit.

    I think they are even more of an asset here than just about anywhere else I visit regularly because in most hobbies even if you dont know about how or why something works or doesnt, you generally have some idea what the item or concept or topic is likely called.

    Without knowing the term 'bishop bag' for example, it took me forever and wasted a bunch of peoples time by having to start a whole new thread just to describe a search term in a single sentence. instead I can just search stuff or sack or probably even bag and get to where i want to go.

    Amazingly useful to a noob like me, to find a wider breadth of discussions over time of the same topics.

    Personally, i find them useful on other forums that I visit.

    The one downside is that it is quite easy to forget that the thread you are viewing has potentially not been active for quite some time when you click the link below an active thread.

    I find that there are way more zombie threads on forums that use that feature. That said, generally the benefits outweigh the negatives in my opinion.

    Forgot about this. I think it would break the computer's brain if it had to choose only 4 "what's more important? UQ or TQ?" threads!

    This should be a sticky as it has come up two or three times in the last week alone.

    I agree...lots of new threads get started asking the same thing that could have been avoided by doing a little homework first.

    Yea I'm a searcher for sure. Sometimes you get killer feedback from the seasoned hangers or even manufacturers in one thread - but another duplicate thread will get created and drown out the "good one". I hate to see that.
