The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

It seems that this section of the forums has just had so many fantastic and sticky-worthy ideas, it was about time it was "cleaned up a little bit". :) For those of you not in the know, a master sticky replaces lots of other sticky's (which are of course all important) and has a compilation of all of them. The one sticky will then make navigation easier and allow you to quickly access the originally stickied threads by clicking on a link below. The rule of "bumping" one of these older stickied threads would not be applied as they're sticky for a reason - to be used! In the future though, in stead of a thread being stickied, it will be added to this one post of the master sticky, labelled clearly. Seeing as only the mods can sticky a thread anyhow, it shouldn't make too much difference to the way things are declared as stickied. Anyhow, without further ado, the threads: [COLOR=black][INDENT]Requests:[/INDENT][/COLOR][COLOR=red]Build Icon, Wireframe, Bitmap Request Thread[/COLOR] - For the purpose of requesting either a Build Button, Wireframe or Bitmap Image.
