Tutorial sections


there is a lot of good threads that are built up here, maybe there should be a section where users can submit tutorials after the topic has been hacked to death by other users, because then, it would contain a lot of useful information and untruths can be weeded out, and other users can in turn help verify the information. it in turn can be turned into a tutorial.
(eg > removing MESA drivers and enabling DGA for Mandrake, LFS, Redhat and Slackware. installing nvidia drivers, installing RAID, SAMBA's do's and dont, Jailing Your Apache Server and maybe after a lot of hacking > The complete WINE howto, make your own compete with Codeweavers and WineX, amd so on).

a site that lets users put up tutorials after they are verifed is www.actionscript.org

just a suggestion, there could be some really good topics going up

well moderators? interested

it could be a case of
"build it and they will come"

I think the one reason we didn't call them Tutorials is that just about all other sites call them that. We took a different approach and called them Answers as they are answers to others questions...

You can also access them by going to www.linuxanswers.org

The word "tutorials" also wouldn't fit on the button We do need to make that section of the site more well known however. I anyone has any suggestions on how to do this let me know.

Maybe create a LQ Ad banner that links to it.... and definitely have a bigger link or maybe have the last 5 Answers submitted on the homepage, etc??

How about a sitemap page with its own buttton. There you could briefly describe each page.
