Thank you but you forgot to add my topics....lol...just kidding.

Seriously, this should be pinned somewhere for all people to have easy access to for an index, I think it will work better than the search function.

I'll look and see if I missed anything, and if you've made some good relevant guides. Also, I've asked for this to be pinned. Looking thru everything was kinda eyestraining and trying to figure out which are truely helpful, etc can get out of hand.

 

Edit: added you Pilot XP guide.
