Good help forum for Office 2010?

Can anyone recommend a good, well-trafficked forum for Microsoft Office (particularly 2010) questions? Seems like this should be eminently Googleable, but maybe because there are so many of them, I'm not finding the one that is the one. Thanks!

Forum for finding a picture

Is there a forum out there where I can post a "query" (for example, "dramatic painting of an old wise man pointing to the heavens") and crowd-source the results? I'd like to be on both sides of that game!

Program to alert me of new posts on a vB forum?

I moderate a couple of forums but would prefer not to have to keep checking recent posts' page to see if someone has posted something. Is there a program (for Linux) that would check for new posts on a vBulletin forum for me and alert me of them? I haven't heard of anything like that before but since there are so many social networking applications out there now, I thought it would be worth a shot.

Short film about dangers of online social chat and murder? Screencasted!

A while ago I saw an amusing "short creative film". It was all told on computer screens, like a screen cast where you watch people type an work on their computer. In it you see a lot of typing in a chat room or forum, and the theme is that a stranger they are talking to is actually a murderer of some kind. I just realised this a really cool new way of storytelling through social media and wanted to watch it again. Can anyone remember what it is? [more inside]

How to implement user donations on my forum?

I own a forum which caters to a narrow interest in a small language, so it will never be huge. However, I still have to pay for hosting and decided to spring for a vBulletin licence last year. So I'm paying a modest sum out of pocket yearly. To help offset this I'm currently running a low level of AdSense ads. This does not bring in much, but I'm unwilling to "upgrade" to big, annoying ads. I'm considering implementing a PayPal donation button. What I'm unsure of are the social dynamics of this.

"And all the bells and whistles."

I'm looking for a way to let members of my forum create an individual "member page" for themselves, or have it created for them automatically upon being accepted into a certain usergroup, that they could fill out with miscellaneous info. To be more precise, the forum revolves an online game, and the member page would have details about their characters, background stories, etc. It doesn't really have to be tied to their forum account, although it would be a smooth way to handle it from the user standpoint. Except I'm clueless on how to make this work. [more inside]
