    <p><a href="http://weblogs.asp.net/bsimser/archive/2005/06/27/415834.aspx">Bil started it off</a>, and others are picking up steam.&nbsp; A while back I complained that <a title="" href="http://www.microsoft.com/office/sharepoint/prodinfo/overview.mspx" target="_blank">SharePoint</a> knowledge seemed to be everywhere.&nbsp; This was back when it seemed no one was trolling the SharePoint newsgroups&hellip; there were WAY more questions asked then answered.&nbsp; Compared to <a title="Microsoft Content Management Server" href="http://www.microsoft.com/cmserver/" target="_blank">MCMS</a> (which I know is a smaller community), it was pathetic.&nbsp; it is just so easy to find information on MCMS&hellip; the newsgroup is the best spot thanks to the all knowning (and who must NEVER sleep) <a title="Stefan Gossner" href="http://weblogs.asp.net/stefan_gossner/" target="_blank">Stefan Go&szlig;ner</a> Gossner.</p>
    <p>It&rsquo;s ironic to me as <a title="" href="http://www.anguslogan.com/" target="_blank">Angus Logan</a> and I talked numerous times late at night (ok, late at night for me as I&rsquo;m on the east coast of the USA and Angus is in Australia) about a central place for all MCMS stuff.&nbsp; Not like Spence&rsquo;s MCMSFAQ.com, but more of a &ldquo;clearing house.&rdquo;&nbsp; This would be a place maintained by the most dialed in MCMS folk.&nbsp; There would be numerous sections:</p>
    <ul>
    <li>Index of&nbsp;all MCMS related&nbsp;MSFT knowledgebase articles</li>
    <li>Index of all MCMS hotfixes and service packs</li>
    <li>Index of all MCMS known blogs with ratings (rated by the community), feeds, and even live feeds (read the blogs from this site or subscribe directly&hellip; even a &ldquo;oober subscription&rdquo; that aggregated everyone in the list).</li>
    <li>Index of all known free &amp; commercial add-ins</li>
    <li>Index of all known code samples &amp; articles out there (compiled from CodeProject, GDN, SourceForge.net, blogs, etc)</li></ul>
    <p>That&rsquo;s just a few.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m thinking the same thing would be benifitial for SharePoint as well&hellip; seems that&rsquo;s what Bil is talking about.</p>
    <p>What does the MCMS world think&hellip; is this something that&rsquo;s needed?</p>
