Maybe I'll make an Iowa-related websites sticky thread. There's a limit on sticky threads per forum and if Des Moines gets one, strong arguments can be made for Dubuque (especially now), Iowa City/CR and QC having their own. The terms of service of CD prohibit posting links to competing sites so links might be subject to removal. Also I know that a thread like that is going to attract a ton of spam. But yeah, sounds like it could be a good idea.

Same arguments still stand and there's a limit to how many sticky threads I can make. If I remember right I think we talked a while back ago about an all-Iowa thread like this. I'd be willing to sticky that as long as the links come from people genuinely wishing to share helpful links and not here to peddle something or other (i.e., I know your intentions are simply to share helpful links, if someone registers to post about some apartments, they have other intentions, etc) and they do not link to sites that compete with this one (and honestly I'm a little cloudy on what those sites actually are).

I think links to some of the major Iowa newspapers could be helpful, especially since they have classified sections for looking at jobs or apartment listings. Here are the ones I thought of:

The Des Moines Register: desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register | Des Moines news, community, entertainment, yellow pages and classifieds. Serving Des Moines, Iowa
The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Eastern Iowa Breaking News and Headlines | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City
The Quad City Times: Quad-City Times: Quad Cities, IA/IL
The Sioux City Journal: http://www.siouxcityjournal.com/
The Iowa City Press-Citizen: press-citizen.com | Iowa City Press Citizen | Iowa City news, community, entertainment, yellow pages and classifieds. Serving Iowa City, Iowa
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier: Home
The Dubuque Telegraph-Herald: THonline.com
The Ames Tribune: http://amestrib.com/
The Omaha World-Herald (for Council Bluffs, etc.): http://www.omaha.com/
