Mathematical notes on the web - a sticky in each forum?

    It seems that quite frequently mathwonk, or myself, will post a reply to a question which says 'Here is something I/a colleague/some mathematician I know wrote that contains an answer to your question (and much else besides).'

    How about we create a sticky at the top of each subforum with links to _respectable_ websites with information that is often cited, or frequently used.

    NB - moderators, I'm suggesting a referral system of moderation, like arxiv, rather than an active moderation - that is people are allowed to post to it, without restriction, and dodgy links should be erased upon report.

    I realize that there are, in other subforums, links to online tutorials, and book reports etc, but I never look at these, and surely the information about linear algebra should be in the linear algebra subforum where people first look for help.

    For many people finding notes on the internet is quite easy, but they would rather have the peace of mind knowing that if they don't have a clue about the notes, they can ask a human being. Its all psychological, but still. Either way, I like the idea.
