Lee, thanks for the Copic info! I will be heading to StampTV shortly!
Paula, yay for the traveling stamps, and yay for getting more DTGD challenges done! (I concur about the box, also - use what you have, as long as the price is the same!)
As for the link thing, I read a little about it and I don't find them necessary. People can already share links to the forums if they want. I suspect based on feedback I've seen so far that they will go away, or at least we will have an opt-out. At least I hope so. To me, the biggest offense with them is that they are ugly to look at!
