TonyStark (R.I.P my very dear friend) as the original creator of this project and sd_shadow for creating/writing the template for the Index project.
This group (Moderator and RC's) has for some time now been working on a template that brings together all specific items for whichever device. The main idea behind this project is to have all valuable links for a certain device published in one thread, so users know where to search for relevant information about their device.
By going public, everybody can now use our template if they feel the necessity to create such an INDEX thread, whether it be SM, members or the like,
For the HTML code for this template, look at post #7 of this thread:
Welcome, this thread has been created to encompass everything you may need for your device. Please only post in this thread with feedback on how to improve this document. Do not post "Thank you" type responses. If you have additional questions or require more help, try to find an existing thread, or create your own thread in the Q&A forum. Do not use this as a general help thread.

Below you can read a quote from MikeChannon, Forum Administrator, as a reaction of us going public with the Index Thread (thanks very much Mike, much obliged, also on behalf of sd_shadow):
" Introducing the Index Project which has been created by a small group of XDA enthusiasts as a Community Initiative to help with Indexing select forums. XDA is not officially supporting this other than to say, if people have the time and energy to give by creating one or more device threads which contain links to all sorts of useful infornation about the device, then we encourage them to do so. It does require an on-going committment and if you choose to help you will need to be familiar with the device forums for which you create such an Index thread.
The group of people involved in this project are @sd_shadow, @TonyStark, @kuzibri , and if you'd like to help by creating a thread then I suggest having a look at the template below - see post#7 (including the examples already created for some devices - see post #4) and contacting one of the group members before going ahead. Some devices may already have an index in place and unless it's become old and outdated, then it's best to concentrate on devices where you have particular knowledge and a good index does not already exist. This would be an ideal task for someone who knows a device well, knows where various posts and threads are and could sensibly collect together links to present in an index thread. If it is done well then the thread can be stickied and serve as a useful reference for the device users".
kindest regards, kuzibri
