First things first: if you only read one conference expansion post among the 178 links below, read Panjandrum's Twelve Angry Men at BOTC. You will not regret it. I tried to blurb it but couldn't figure out which piece to blurb.
The expansion links are coming at us so hot and heavy that I had to break them out by topic. This issue is just exhausting. But on the bright side, this links post would have had about five links if not for expansion.
