I have compiled this page of folks that I have recently discussed customizations with and have led me to others. wluther started a list on a couple of his posts and I thought I would expand upon it just a bit. Then I asked rschroeder about a few things and he lead me to more. Again a list was developing. I have not had time to ask cnorborg about more regex stuff but I am sure he has some excellent ideas and some teaching points to share. As I find more helpful posts for my use, I will reference them here. Please follow&bookmark&KUDOS this page, if this would be a helpful resource for you.
I would like to thank all of you here for your contributions.

Definitely bookmarking this. I am looking to overhaul the user experience this winter for Solarwinds. Try to do our best to customize everything in our dashboard for our environment. This will come in real handy.
I'm still lovin' your work aggregating these resources under one page. Thank you for keeping an eye on what's useful and new and different and stimulating, and for making it available here!
I just happened across this again. And again, I'm blown away by the amazing things Thwack & Solarwinds staff have put together for others to access, use, and improve their businesses.
I'm speechless from here out. (And those who occasionally endure my written verbosity will attest that I must TRULY be amazed!)
Incredible list. And... I'm humbled. Just humbled.
Wishing everyone a Happy, Merry, Joyous, Festive time, whether it's a holiday or not, warm or cold, light or dark, the ending, beginning, or just the middle of a year. Continue to be the awesome people you all are, and share the message of #MonitoringGlory with the world.
