My solution to nto srewing up the First mapping tutorials. I have nearly a week straight noschool so I'll wokr up some hevaier content then.

For now, just drop links i here of anything you think i should cover.Angry Beaver 21:14, 14 Feb 2006 (PST)

Goal?

Not sure of the goal of this exactly. Seems like it would overlap with existing pages:

Why not just write a series of tutorials and place links to them in the proper category? The Level Design category page will be getting a cleanup soon. --JeffLane 11:13, 15 Feb 2006 (PST)

What its meant to be is a launching pad for new mappers. The current beginers tutorials while basic are too basic. They basically say "Heres hammer , make a brush pick a texture. make a room. Good now you know everything go have fun." Whereas they know aboiut 20% of what I call basics. This area will be the more advanced approach to bring them up to a more respectable level of mapping. It will show them other tutorials and things through links but it will be sort of a lesson plan on how to bring yourself up to a better standard of mapping. It wont be entirley self contained and will utilise the rest of the wiki's tutorials i feel relevant. Angry Beaver 15:05, 15 Feb 2006 (PST)

I strongly object to the text part of the recent "rewamp". This "You wanna be something, huh?" is emotional language, it's repetitive, all meaningful descriptions has been edited out, and it is generally unprofessional. --Andreasen 05:39, 27 Aug 2006 (PDT)

I agree. BTW is 'you' even allowed in these articles? Shouldn't be all thirdperson? --dutchmega 06:08, 27 Aug 2006 (PDT)
I was wondering about that myself these last few days, because although normal WIKIPEDIA articles is neccessary to be in third person format, as it is a dictionary describing something independent to the reader, tutorials (only) of the Source wiki would be very strange if they were written in third person format, so I'm thinking that maybe tutorials SHOULD be in second person view (but not first person). Still I think I saw some tutorials being marked with cleanup tags for being in second person view, and I'm wondering if this would be a mistag. I don't know. --Andreasen 08:07, 27 Aug 2006 (PDT)
Okay I'll rethink it, infact i don't think i need to this is good. I wrote the other thing when I got off topic and decided it would work better here. Shame I did it at 1:00AM otherwise i might of noticed the tone was off. --Angry Beaver 08:50, 27 Aug 2006 (PDT)
