@rachel, does it make sense to wikify this? Also, is there a way admins can fold other related threads into this one… I copied the links over but some of them have good conversations that we can archive under this master thread. Thanks!

@jamesrequa @init_27: pulled out content from your awesome threads so they’re accessible to all. please check if I missed anything. I couldn’t figure out a way to make the conversations also be available to all… some of them are worth reviewing often! If there is a way to pull in or embed whole threads pls let me know.
