    Shouldn't that link have been placed in the link directory? ;)

    I'm glad I came in late, I would have been embarrassed to admit that I had never clicked on the link directory link. I'm not sure that I even noticed it before now. Now that I see the overwhelming numbers of people who were also unaware, I feel less oblivious.
    Having checked it out to see what was in there, I'll probably explore further.

    I like it, and I have used it before, but it could definitely stand some additions to the lineup and the fixing/removal of some old links.

    Thanks,

    I stumbled upon it in the past and it didn't seem useful to me at that time so I haven't been using it.

    Didn't know it existed. I'm unlikely to use it. I already know everything and everyone in the hobby. I could see it being useful for some people though.

    Later, Tom

    I have never heard of this link directory before, so I've never used it.

    Like the majority who voted I also had no idea it existed. That said I usually only utilize a small portion to any forum I belong to. In this case its the for sale ads and occasionally the discussion forums. I'll check out the ones that interest me and if I like them I will put them in my favorites but I doubt it would be something I would regularly use and I probably wouldn't miss it if it were gone. On the other hand I do appreciate the fact that it is there as it will let me check out other sites I normally wouldn't know existed.

    I can definitely agree that would be nice, I didn't know there was a link directory until today... also I have a decent amount of scientific literature I've gathered about millipedes, mostly on my own. Been mulling over whether to track down where I got most of them and post a list but I haven't gotten around to it. There's the huge article link list for centipedes and some other things already here, it would be nice if all the scholarly articles links had their own space though, separated by class for easy navigation. That's probably going too far though...

    I don’t make the time to add links.

    I do like sticky posts!

    This seems useful, but I don't think most people use it because they simply jump into the threads that peak their interest.

    YEah I honestly had no clue it existed either . Maybe it needs highlighted by the mods or something to make it standout so we can’t find it .
    I have a broken Link to a survey that exists somewhere list in space . Ouch
    Best of luck mods !! Hurray

    I’ve taken the survey. Why does it still ask me to take the survey now?

    Not you, there's currently a compatibility issue with the Link software and some of the backend software that we run. It's being looked into.

    I can see the advantage to the link directory in some ways, because Google search does not always give the best results for niche things like this
