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!

comment Is an out of sight enemy a problem for Warlock's Curse?
Invisible doesn't mean what you think it does. Invisible is just very hard to see, but you perfectly know where it is and can hit it, albeit at a penalty.

revised Will adding spells to the Duskblade Spell list unbalance play?
restored complete spell list, highlighting new ones, for easier power comparison and to easily spot very short spell lists

comment What are the best ways to move and full-attack in the same round?
Manyshot: "For every five points of base attack bonus you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack bonus of +16."

comment Short Swords or Hand axes?
@DanceSC the average damage added by improved critical to a sword and an axe is the same. If you need a high roll to hit, the sword starts having those "would be a critical threat but it missed" earlier, meaning it loses some damage to the axe.

comment Short Swords or Hand axes?
@DanceSC 0.1 chance * 2 extra weapon damage = 0.2 extra damage; 0.2 chance * 1 extra weapon damage = still 0.2 extra damage. Improved critical or keen and similar properties increase damage in the same way (the axe is then better if you hit with a 17 or more, for the same reason it's better if you hit only with a 20 without the feat)

comment How well can a Truenamer (the recreated, GitP, The Way Words Work version) cover for the role played by a divine caster?
Plus, he can really be replaced by a script. "When I'm at home... here, have my character sheet, spells included. He uses this if x happens, that if y happens. Don't get him killed."

comment How can a Good-aligned cleric cast Desecrate?
@GmJoe not really. It looks like "the question is not clear enough" to me, for I have no idea if I'm challenging the question or just understanding it downright wrong.

comment How can a Good-aligned cleric cast Desecrate?
If one wants to be good just because it is convenient, he isn't really that good. He should be neutral at least. If the character is worried he could turn evil and don't want to, atonement might be the solution (or one of the other solutions from Hey I Can Chan's answer). If the character is evil, but he's trying to pass as good, it's more a question on how to screen his evil alignment from being perceived: he is not good to start with, so he might just cast desecrate, with no ill effects. Which situation are you in?
