Thanks for pointing that out, hello123456.

Scaling a website like Good-Tutorials is hard. A few years ago I could suitably handle the amount of submissions myself, which tended to keep the average level of tutorials fairly high. At this point, however, we need to rely more on getting more eyeballs in the upcoming queue to help moderate tutorials.

More generally, the moderation process is something that I'm always looking to constantly tweak and improve upon. We've already changed the process a lot from its initial launch, so I think we're heading in the right direction. I do have some ideas to help improve things substantially as well, but as always it's tough to find the time to actually sit down and implement them. Along those same lines, I've been incredibly busy the last month in particular, which means I don't spend as much time in the moderation queue myself, which in turn does harm the overall process a bit.

Overall, though, if you have any specific comments or questions or feedback about how it might be improved, I'm always all ears. And if you or anyone else is interested in help moderating tutorials, just drop me a line and we'll see if you're a good fit.

That's not quite how copyright law is interpreted.

Original Tutorial: DataMapper Forms

It's a cool gem, but unfortunately it's not quite a tutorial, so I can't list it here.

Updated your title for you; let me know if there's anything else you'd like. :)

@tsdesigns - absolutely. That was part of the "filters and searches" I was hinting to in the blog post. We'll get there soon enough; I wanted to get this first step out the door first so authors could get a little better handle on the process.

Usually within a day, but sometimes we hold off on moderating them until we have enough ratings.

Site appears to be down.

I just noticed you were typing "clear" to clear your terminal screen... I typically just use command+K (although that actually clears the window... "clear" bumps your screen a screenful lower, so depends on what you're looking for.)
