D&D Hall of Fame:

Singhi's 3e campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3e short adventure - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3e campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3e 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 premade characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pierluigi'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!
Cau's 3.5 Daemonfey Apocalypse campaign. First true level up ever!
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth. - Ongoing.

revised Why are there no bonus cantrips for high ability scores?
changed title to avoid too much focus on the limited/unlimited part, solving some comments

comment Is 'Charge' broken?
While it's not possible to move in a straight line towards the enemy without moving closer, you can move closer without moving in a straight line. The 3.5e limitation you wrote is not complete. Also, comments are meant for clarification, then deletion... so, edit your answer instead ;)

comment Can I *create* a PC with a template?
it depends. Is you game starting at level 3?

comment Can I *create* a PC with a template?
For a sun elf native to the celestial realms I strongly suggest the Otherworldly feat.

comment Can weapons have multiple energy enchants?
On a separate note: turning off some property is useful when, for example, you're carrying some big weapon you can't sheate - randomly igniting things like if you were carrying a fire on your back is not a good idea.

comment Is grappling symmetrical?
Worth noting: pinning, which is not symmetric, is one of the possible results of a grapple check but isn't considered part of grappling, at least for the scope of this answer.

comment How much can ambushers do before losing the advantage of surprise?
By spotting, I mean becoming aware of their presence by any means. I don't know if it's clear. Should I change the wording?

revised What are the major differences between D&D 3.0 and D&D 3.5
When I explained how harm works I meant it. The spell does not deal damage, it brings you close to death no matter your HP total. I used a better wording this time, or so I hope

comment My party is leveling far too quickly in Thunderspire Labyrinth
@SevenSidedDie no such thing as H4 exists, being H3 the last heroic (H) module of the series. The next module in the campaign would be P1 (paragon 1). However, "higher campaign module" and "the next module" both seem related to "not H3, the next one". I agree it should be explicit to avoid confusion.
