i hope this will be still considered as bug report not devastation, just wanted to make it visible as clearly noone gives a damn about this problem for a couple of months...

I haven't done anything about it because it's not a bug. If you have enough rep which was 3,500 you are able to make edits to any tutorial as we consider you a trusted member of the community.

I've increased it to 5,000 rep now, and because people have been vandalising other peoples tutorials I'm going to have to reconsider if this is a feature we can trust people with. It's a shame because it's going to take a lot of time to revert this feature which I'd rather spend elsewhere at the moment as I'm very busy.

If you have an issue with a feature you wish to bring to my attention please email me personally, I always check read and reply to all emails. Editing our most popular tutorial is not the way to go about it.Tom2012-06-28 13:40:34

well this feature was reported some time ago and as zsangerous said many times probably. it's just not clear and it looks like a bug and personally I think this should have been explained already.

Sorry for editing the first tutorial on the list, I just thought it was a bug and wanted to bring your attention to this bug, which apparently worked like a charm :)

I have under 3500 rep and am able to edit tutorials, so maybe it's worth looking into it.

Again sorry for drastic action and thank you very much for clearing it out, no harm meant.

Cheers.

@Ranma, I've just tested it and it's working fine. Are you still able to edit other peoples tutorials?

nope, now I'm not able to do it, so everything works fine.

what I actually meant I [was] able to edit the tutorial with under 3500 rep.

anyway, i think the rep needed to edit every tutorial set to 5000 is a good move. im glad it was raised.

cheers

Out of curiosity, what's the status on the ability to edit others' tutorials? I'm a technical writer and editor, and while I don't yet have 5,000 reputation points, I will before too long. I'd be very happy to silently clean up typos and make other minor corrections to tutorials as I'm reading.

(I would also direct message an author any time I made a modification, both out of courtesy and so that they could undo the change if they feel I've erroneously altered their meaning.)

It's still 5,000 rep. We'd love to be able to 'whitelist' people like yourself to edit but unfortunately this site doesn't support that feature yet!

@Tom , you could always automatically send a message to the writer so he can confirm the edits or something ... that way , we won't need to add anti-spam stuff

I tried and edited the beginners tutorial and it worked well ...
