Jimmy's lists of helpful threads

ANZ / SEA
A long time ago, a forumgoer by the name of Jimmy decided to make a series of lists of threads that could be used in order to help overcome specific problems.

It was one of the very few threads that every got the blue colouring on the SEA forums, and because of its helpfulness, I have decided to move them all here.

I will be starting with just the original lists, however as time goes on I will update it so that any new threads that pop up (which probably will happen with HotS) will be covered.

100% of credit goes to Jimmy.

Also, threads that are out of date and no longer relevant will be removed

Requested sticky.
Most of his strategic stuff is very outdated by now (Those lists started in 2010). However, mechanical stuff is always great.

It is isn't it.

I'll probably take a really long time overhauling the threads, otherwise the only advice I have for now is: Learn from others mistakes. That and moar "Tag(Neun)"
If you want to just strip out the current info that is still relevant - such as the mechanics then I will be happy to sticky.
