A way to spark new tutorials and draw interested parties together?


LQ is vast, so this may exist and I never noticed it: but is there a place where people can ask for tutorials to be written and/or collaborate with other members to create such tutorial(s)?

Two things sparked this idea in my mind: one is the request that LQ makes to answer zero reply questions, and the other is that on some Wiki sites I have seen links at the bottom like "can you help by writing articles on these related topics?"

Note, however, that I am not enough of a Linux expert to tackle a whole tutorial, but I could help as part of a team.

I concur there should be a dedicated place for some tutorials on doing complicated things. Alot of the ones that I have ever seen on LQ are just general posts into threads and they quickly get eaten up buy support questions and lost. I wrote such a tutorial for making a thumb-drive raid system albeit that its not very useful but it was interesting to me and maybe some others

While we do have a dedicated tutorials section, no dedicated place currently exists to discuss the creation of one. However, I'd say picking the most relevant forum based on the tutorial in question and posting a thread about it there is probably the best course of action at this time.
