Areas of Expertise

Much like the languages thread, I thought perhaps it would be useful to have a thread of topics that people are happy to be PM'd about? Stuff that you know more than perhaps the average Joe Bloggs and are happy to share that knowledge.

I'm not sure how to structure the list, though.

facingthenorthwind: Judaism, Wizard Religion, Australia, World War I

EDIT: Great topic! I think organizing alphabetically by username as suggested below is a good idea for now, particularly as I imagine the list of topics will become expansive. I've just reformatted so that only usernames are bold and thus usernames and areas can be more easily differentiated. If we really start to stack up on loads of areas we may switch to an area-based listing, but let's wait and see. :)

I kind of love this idea!  I think for now it might work to do names alphabetically and people can ctrl+f for subject matter.
