Ok! The only thing I could use help with is some initial categories for tutorials. I'm not too familiar with common things that tutorials would be made for.

If you have any suggestions feel free to post them here as well!

There are a few ways you could do this maybe? Just some suggestions :)


I would suggest doing tutorials by Author (Alphabetical), and then have tags for what they would represent. An example would be.

LaCorpse:
Spoiler: Click to view




[V] = Video
[SW] = Signature Walkthrough
[T] = Text Effect

you could add more as well, like..

[BG] = Big Graphic









Orr, you could do categories over the alphabetical idea. (I would siggest keeping the [V] tag for videos)

Signature Walktroughs:
Bigger Graphics:
Textures:
Text Effects:
Miscellaneous:

If you would like, I could make banners for each category if you do it that way :)



P.S I would suggest you tell people to make the thumbnails a certain size so things look tidy. 100x100 maybe?

I gave a maximum signature size since if people are making things besides sigs it might be harder to fit it in a small size.

Also I would love banners by categories. :) Yours sound like a good start. Thanks! ^_^

Welp, my mother came over for some quality time tonight (She is starting to get in to world of warcraft, funny story). So as soon as she leaves I'll get my hands virtually dirty in photoshop for you :) I've got a few more ideas that might be better shown, than explained :)

How did she get into WoW? I want to play WoW, but I am too lazy to go to Wal-mart to buy it >.<

I've been playing WoW since I was 17. My mother always wanted to try to play with me so she could do something with me. She tried when I still lived at the house but it took her 3 hours to get to level three because I didn't have much patience to help her though things.

Since I moved out we don't see each other often so she wanted to try it again. Now, I do have more patience and they have also made it easier for new players to learn. She comes over 2-3 days a week and we play together. Right now we are at level 55. Haha. On my own I can do 1-85 in about 4 days, but I want to take it slow with her and show her all I can along the way. Shes having a lot of fun this time around..

Anyways, we shouldn't carry on this conversation here since it is not the right place...

As for the real reason I was posting:
I'm working on banners/ideas right now before Richard gets home :)

P.S I still think it should be a fixed thumbnail size to keep things neat and tidy, otherwise it could be chaos to look at. I'll make a mark up of this as well, so you can see what I mean :)

So this is what I have, you don't have to use it if you don't want to. I can send you the PSD. Its easy to edit and such.

I'll give you an example of the "layout" for the thumbnails, and why I think they should be a set size, no bigger and no smaller.












And now for the thumbnail "layout":

While you made a valid point, I just really wanted to show you what I meant :), I think a set size will make things look so much better. I believe these thumbnails are big enough to highlight what the tutorial does as well. (They are 293 x 120, they would have to be exact)
