D&D Hall of Fame:

Singhi's 3.0 campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3.0 one-shot - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3.0 campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3.0 campaign - aborted three rooms from the end.
Marco's 3.5 7-PCs-campaign - aborted for scheduling problems. Still no level ups.
Marco's intro to RttToEE - gave DMing right to me after 2 sessions. Arbitrary leveling up between those.
My 3.5 Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil. TPK'ed at level 8/9.
Marco's 3.5 all manuals campaign - aborted for excessive PC firepower. Guess what.
Marco's 3.5 random characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pier's 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - gave DMing rights to me before I could level.
My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits. - Completed!
My 3.0 City of the Spider Queen. - Completed!
My 4e Keep on the Shadowfell. - Completed! Kavu's 3.5 Daemonfey campaign

comment Why can't clerics use sharp weapons?
And just to reinforce that story... there's a spell called Mace od Odo in Player's Guide to Faerun.

comment Learning to use spells comfortably
As NPCs become stronger they get access to different spells. With a wider selection you can get different tactics (trying to blast the enemy, slowing them down, helping some archers, aiding the damage dealers). In the end, D&D 3.5 becomes a game of countermeasures where your players get immunities and their opponents are forced to change spells. Grease isn't that great against flying characters.

comment Dealing with players smarter than me?
One more cons of the first point would be the player being unable to get surprised by things, which could get hime less interested.

comment Options for leveraging non-lethal damage
@JeffGohlke Mmmmhhh, can't find it. Maybe it was some reminiscence from 3.0 or an houserule in my first D&D group.

comment Options for leveraging non-lethal damage
A non-lethal light weapon in core (the blackjack) and a one-handed weapon which english name I don't know that's essentially a bigger version of it also exist in 3.5, without taking BoED into consideration. Natural weapons also don't get the -4 penalty to deal non-lethal damage, which is good for druids and transmuters. Feel free to add that to your answer.

comment How can I encourage role playing in a custom setting?
As someone I know used to say, "If you play a game where telling some map coordinates and announcing a roll is all it takes to be able to move to the next issue, describing how that attack is dealt will look like a great loss of time". That's especially true if combats are long and if roleplaying out of combat feels more natural to the players.

(While I'd say points 3 and 4 could very easily have been separate questions, it looks like you forgot about them)

@Kryan I believe I'm Italian too. Benvenuto sul sito IssamTP e anche se questo fine settimana ci sarò poco passa per la Role-playing Games Chat che prima o poi mi trovi. (Transl.: Welcome, I'll be around, links to the chat, yadda yadda)

comment Are there any good alternatives to the Move Silently skill, preferably magic or spell based?
Any zone of silence is probably too suspicious to remain unnoticed, and this makes it a bad stealth aid.
