Category talk:Tutorials

I propose that there be a sub-category on this page, for each genre of tutorials. For example, a mapping category, a sound category, and a programming category. I think that this may encourage users to submit their own tutorials, thus making the wiki even better. Thoughts? -- Pon

This category is sort of pointless anyway, since each of these articles is already in its appropriate category. Why would a mapper want to come to this category first instead of the Level Design category, where their answer may or may not be in tutorial form?--Mungo 15:41, 24 Jul 2005 (PDT)
Who says that they have to come here first? Articles can be in more than one category, and it would make it (in my opinion) more organized to have a reference section (like all the entities, etc.), and a tutorial section, and have the tutorial section either have the articles themselves in that section, or have a single link to a section in the Tutorials category... Kinda hard to explain what I mean:S

How about doin somethin'?

How 'bout adding some new kewl articles huh? ;D I would do alot if I knew anything useful about modding/mapping, yeah well, I don't ;] But what I do know is how to run a proper wiki, and to be honest, this is not a perfect example how a wiki should look. Maybe it's time to do some cleaning, there's a bit too much of those Adding-, Creating- & Making- in front of the articles, agree? It's a tutorial section, it's not needed, currently 17 articles beginning with "Creating" ;P And wikis are mostly about quality not quantity, so we might need to clean the content in those articles up a bit :] So, anyone with me? Sometimes I get the feeling that this wiki is deserted ;< --Gussi 10:11, 7 Dec 2005 (PST)

I wrote an article with "Creating" just because I can't think of a good title(partly because English is not my native language). I'm for cleaning and re-organizing tutorial articles, but just don't know where to start. Can you set up some rules for cleaning? -n-neko 17:38, 7 Dec 2005 (PST)

External Links

There are a lot of excellent tutorials on external websites. Is there a place where links to them are supposed to go? I was surprised that there isn't a section with links to websites.
