Firs time users look in the tutorials I doubt anyway they will go look for a "all user capx forum random" anyway.
Also, you just threw random CAPXs all-together, without any kind of explanation whatsoever.
A new user would just arrive on your "tutorial", see a list of capx without explanations, wonder if he's supposed to download each capx one by one and try them out to understand them.
Some might do, most of them will call it bullshit and move on to another tutorial, or maybe even go post in the forums for something that's already answered out there.

Once again, it's indeed a good idea to post those capx example as they are useful. Nevertheless, I believe each of them author should do it, in its own dedicated tutorial/capx example, with a proper title, proper tags for research and a quick explanation of what to expect from the capx.
This way, it is useful for whomever does search in the tutorials section.

A catch-all tutorial is just not that useful at all in the end. And I don't think it's really worth resources for new comers at all since they can already find those examples on their own when searching through the forum for specific topic/keywords.

Edit: I've just also noticed that this very topic was randomly placed. Moved it to a more appropriate forum.

Unfortunately from what I have noticed from the questions asked from many young users , they don't bother to read the manual or the tutorials .
What I know would fill a Book , what I don't know would fill a Library

But as @Kyatric has already mentioned, a bunch of randomly listed capx, with no real context, will not help anyone.

Any forum user (new or old), will have a much better chance of finding what they need by carrying out a search which will return results relevant to the search terms they use.

@gamecorptm It's the very first post on the entire "How do I..." forum. :roll:



And I have to agree with @Kyatric myself. There's no point in a whole bunch of random files thrown together because, most importantly, they are being taken out of their context.

Now on the other hand, I think it may be beneficial if someone took these examples, annotated them to be readable, and placed them in a forum thread rather than a tutorial. Make it a community effort instead of a dumping ground. :) That way we can have a good source of example files that are useful to pick up and go, and have context for what they are trying to show to the average C2 user.
