I've decided to end the popularity check threads for two reasons:
1. Issues with Viglink adding links in the text, which I have no control of.
2. Now we have the Head-Gear section in which if everyone adds the items they own to their lists as they should, then we can very easily get an idea of the popularity of components.
I realise that the Head-Gear section isn't as efficient to browse as the last post in the thread is, but more people are being exposed to the list system than this thread.
