While I understand te decision to have this thread pinned, it is still a nuissance. Wjenever I get here, most of the page is fulled with this thread. It also means that other subjects are quickly removed to page 2, and therefore soon forgotten, perhaps before they have finished being of interest.
My suggestion is to move this discussion to another sector ("Tips" or the like). It is not a must, but only a point of irritation as I am definitely not a speedpainter.
