    Stratics Forums is a big place with little gems of knowledge hidden around in assorted, dusty threads. Finding the best user-created guides, artwork, music, and tools can be a challenge, especially for new users.

    To improve knowledge management, Stratics is pleased to introduce a Resource Manager! The Resource Manager (accessed via the "Resources" link at the top of our forums) allows any Stratics user to submit a variety of resources, both free and paid, including but not limited to guides, images, art, music, calculators, tools, etc. Other community members can use and rate these resources.

    Whenever a resource is submitted, a corresponding discussion thread will automatically be created for it. After submission, the resource author can upload versionized updates. Resources can be sorted by recency of submission, recency of update, highest user rating, and most downloaded.

    Why is this helpful? First and foremost, it places all of our community's amazing resources in a single place. No more hunting or bookmarking ancient threads with hidden knowledge! Additionally, the ability to sort by the highest user rating allows the very best guides to rise to the top, while the ability to sort by the most recently submitted resources allows immediate community exposure to the most up-to-date guides.

    As we begin to populate the Resource Manager, we'll be holding some contests for users who participate in uploading resources. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, feedback is always invited.

    Disclaimer: New and updated resources are hidden until reviewed and approved by a moderator. Any attempt to upload or link to malicious software will result in an immediate, permanent ban. Downloading, purchasing, and/or using these resources constitutes consent to the liability thereof. Only download, purchase, or use resources, or click links to external sites, submitted by users that you know and trust.

    I hope we'll see UOMapper, Pinco's UI, GameXBar, etc. uploaded. Additionally, various skill calculators, suit calculators, etc., designed in Excel could be uploaded. Images, such as custom maps, can be uploaded. Text-only resource can also be added and later updated, like a guide for training taming, or a template for the best sampire.

    It's essentially anything that could help the community, that people can download or read and provide a review on.

    Does this help at all?
