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
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again

comment How to build a blaster/damage wizard or sorcerer in 3.5e?
As a DM, sonic delayed fireballs with friendly holes were my nightmare.

comment Any good module/quest for 6 Lvl 3 PCs?
@user14963 IIRC, The Forge of Fury is pretty heavy on the figurative doors to kick. I've also heard good things about the Shackled City and surely some part of Expedition to Unedrmountain are suitable to your needs, but I didn't want my answer to be a list.

@Tridus but it's acid. While it's one of the better orbs because of the secondary effect, it'ss resistable. Orb of Fire/Cold aren't, because of the aforementioned feats. Orbs, however, only do 15d maximum. My fire spell of choice would be Combustion, made ranged with metamagic.

comment Looking for cost to make a very specific weapon in D&D 3.5e
@ThalesSarczuk unless someone is casting Superior Magic Weapon on it when needed.

comment Is it possible to cast 3rd level Arcane spells at level 3?
I don't think he seems to think that (rather, that he thinks that it's weaker than something allowed, not than something on the baseline) but this is not the place to talk about it. If somebody is interested in expanding the conversation, let's open a chat.

@JackLesnie since (according to WotC's rules on primary sources) text has precedence over tables, Rainbow Servant is a full casting class, not losing 4 CLs like the table suggests.

comment Should a quest completed be its own reward?
@MarcusWigert let's say your character's objective is to get revenge. Have them find someone that wants their same thing (revenge against the regime maybe) who will reward them for having done so.

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?

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?
