I've noticed the blender forum has reached a size of about 13x50 + (months since this post x ~10) separate posts, and as much as I love using the search function I thought I'd try to start an index of posts with good advice, organized by problem type. This should be [one of many] good reference point for anyone trying to use blendigo.

Thank you very much for this stuff! It was the most helpful thing for me (plus the manual) :D
Do you plan to update it? :wink:

just went through blender forum back to the last time I updated the list. will look through the other forums later. :D

Also I notice there are a lot of tutorials that used to be on the main site by smartden concerning things like using ISL in blender...that seem to have disappeared but I think they are important.
