This is a duplicate list of the sidebar which I intend to update rather than this post (though knowing me a flight of whimsy at a later date will have this list being updated in synch with the sidebar. This post was really just created for the official website where I’ve submitted the website for a bit of community feel :).

There are a few on there that I had difficulty succinctly quantifying and have left them ambiguous for now with the intent of working out the details later.
