We could use your help

Posted over 10 years ago

Hi everyone.

Long time no chat; I know. Life has been perpetually busy for me this year, which will never really be a legitimate excuse for anything of value. When you get down to it, a lot of it stems from burnout for me. I've been doing this mostly every day since 2002, and it just wasn't as exciting like it used to be.

Luckily, a hiatus like that can bring a refreshing look at things. I'm back to getting the itch to revamp tutorial topics, fix some longstanding bugs, and add some fun new features to Good-Tutorials (and I'm in the thick of development of a number of new site launches that you might hear about in the future, too). In other words, it's time for new again.

Until the ball gets rolling on those, we have some more pressing matters, particularly in the moderation realm. I know things in the last week or two have been quite rough, with many delays. Much of this stems from a few atrocious weeks I've had personally as I've been mostly bedridden with a flu-like illness and as I've been moving to a new residence in a new city, but it also stems from a lack of active moderators, which can happen over time.

So, we need help with the upcoming queue. You can help right now by logging in and rating those tutorials in the queue. Your votes will help determine which tutorials float to the front page, and that helps everybody.

If, however, you have some regular spare time, you can apply to be an official Good-Tutorials moderator. Please read the instructions on the top of that page for more details. The more the merrier, and I'm looking for a wide range of skills, from those new to Photoshop, PHP, Flash, CSS, or other technologies, to those working with any technology professionally. All are welcome, every bit helps.

Secondly, float me some ideas. I'm always on the lookout for new ideas, features, problems you've had with the current site, and so on. It'll provide good inspiration for me to get going on these new features and functionality. Feel free to post in the comments of this post.

In the meantime, you should follow me on Twitter, which will be the place I'll drop hints to my new sites as they creep towards launch (one of which will absolutely be interesting to users of this site in particular). You should also follow Good-Tutorials on Twitter, which is one tweet per day of the most interesting tutorial found on the site.

Thanks for being a Good-Tutorials visitor. I hope you've enjoyed your visit today.

Thank you for such a great site ! Application for moderator was sent, because i really feel qualified for being moderator. Visiting this site from 2006, every day many times. Gaved me so much great links ! Thank you ! I sent application yesterday with username keglic if you can check it. About ideas, i think definetly good tutorials need some more cleaner and fresh design ! More optimization on tutorials, if you are first time visitor, can't know what to click. That's my opinion.

Thank you very much ! Best regards, Zan
