What is the Hotlinks thread you ask?
Here's how it works.
It's a little like your current "Gear list" link in your sig (if you don't have one yet look here;
... but instead of a list of gear, you put a list of your favorite links to THREADS ON THIS FORUM.
They can be review threads, or great posts you've made that explain stuff, etc.
Anything you want.
ben_r_ started the ball rolling asking for a way to consolidate his own gear reviews... this was the spark that created this new idea.
So have at it!
