As I just added to the OP:
Due to the old thread's size and popularity, it was causing server problems. You can view the old thread here. Once this whole deal dies down, we'll merge them back together for an intact record of the entire movement. - DaFace
I merged posts starting 12am CDT this morning into this thread just so we have some recent history of discussion to start with. Hopefully this will help the server to stop sucking.
