Please note: The top ten list is not done according to any set criteria; rather, it is a reflection of the sites which I use first when I'm looking for a piece to do. Generally, the sites that are on the top are the ones that contain quality scripts, contain synopses of scripts, and, overall, are user-friendly. I anticipate that the order will change over time as new sites are added and as old sites are updated.
I'm updating as often as I can, but it's hard to keep up with all the material that's out there. If you know of any good sites or have any questions or comments, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
