Hello all, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I am wondering if there is a way to report tutorials that are not really tutorials? Once in a while a spam post slips in, while these usually seem to get removed, there are still some items that end up there that I don't feel qualify as a tutorial, especially when they are not directly about Construct and simply post links to sites offering resources.
I would love to see some type of rules in place for tutorials or at least a method to report those that do not really fit the description of tutorial. We have forums for resources, tools and help wanted for linking to resource packages, etc... I don't think we need these types of posts diluting the pool of excellent tutorials that are up there.
I was also thinking that we may need some rules around having tutorials reviewed before they are posted as there are times when there are submissions from those who are not yet familiar with the tools and post tutorials on ways of doing things that are not efficient and will lead to bad performance in your games. This leads to frustration and misconception on the part of new users who are trying to use the tutorials to find the recommended ways of doing things. I love the tutorial section of this site and don't want to see it diluted or filled with tutorials that teach bad habits. I don't mean to sound over zealous, but the tutorials are the number 1 place for beginners to learn and making sure the tutorials are as accurate or useful to help everyone get up to speed with making the game of their dreams as quickly as possible.
The other side benefit of the tutorials having some quality control would be a (hopeful) decrease in the amount of "How do I make a game..." questions we get that make it obvious that no initial research was done in the manual or tutorials...
Anyway... sorry for the rant. I just feel strongly about the forums and tutorial sections of this site and want to assist in making sure they are the best they can be. I love this place, and of course Construct 2 itself. Thanks again Scirra, you rock!
