Throw links in here when they feel like a good fit for a future links email / post. Often times just browsing through channels on Discord chat is a good place to harvest stuff.
When you’ve got more time, post it as a #discussion item with a quote or description. See the first post of drafting fragments here in the Talk forum for examples, and how the weekly links post should get formatted:
