There are already quite a few question asking for resources, which basically ask for links:

Should they be regular questions or community wikis, with one resource/answer?

(I tried a different approach in the filigree question, where I started a community wiki -answer to a regular question)

Should they (ever) be marked as "answered"?

Where should we draw the line; e.g. if someone would've asked for vector stock resources, should a question asking for filigree vectors be closed and pointed to the vector stock question?

I know one can't mark their question as a community wiki, but needs to flag it for moderator attention.

I vote to mark them as community wiki and let the threads fall where they may. Broad or subjective does not always equal bad.

Some amount of "List of X" questions is bound to pop up, and it's not a bad thing IMO because the community pours all its current knowledge of "where to get xyz" into them.

As long as they don't become too subjective or too esoteric, I am in favour of letting them live as Community Wiki.

Yes. Discussion is always good. If we limit discussion, discussion may die down slowly in the future and SE GD might get closed.
