    Default Nominations for all time great CPF threads

    As suggested by Kestrel in another section of the forum, let's use this thread as a compendium of all time great CPF threads. There will be no numerical ranking, just a place where the best can be put together in one spot and enjoyed. PLEASE include a link for everyone to use. And, Go!!!

    To nominate a thread which may have been lost to time;
    "This fish light is straight baller son"

    (If anyone can dig up the discussion thread or at least the auction screenshot, that would be cool.)

    I have been going through those threads and when I see old members I look through their posting history and find other cool threads. Might be a bit stalkerish but I get to find some really cool stuff.

    I would have to nominate

    A Tribute to Nitecore D10


    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...o-Nitecore-D10

    It was such a complete and thorough explanation of the D10 and even included the mods and customizations that developed afterwards.

    I've been using Wayback Maxhine to look for this...
    https://web.archive.org/web/20190121...vb/content.php

    But as I don't know what I'm looking for I can't find it. They do have records from the right time, it's a matter of finding the correct thread as the search function doesn't work.
    If anyone has any more info to help let me know and I'll give it a try. Failing that you'll probably be better at than I am.
    It's a dead useful site, whatever.

    Except that it was on the cpfmarketplace (dot) com

    I believe this is the thread ...

    http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/sho...=1#post2266943

    That link is broken, of course.

    I, too, think that it may be in the Wayback Machine, but the interface is so cumbersome that I can't seem to find it (and I have tried several times)

    Cumbersome is an understatement. I'll have another go when I need some more self flagellation.
