Hello, i’m kind of still new to this community, but I have quite a bit to offer. As of right now, I have a fairly complete tutorial covering most of the core features. For a while, I was in negotiation with gamedev.net to host them, but I am no longer visiting that site, and requested they don’t host them.

So, I would like to have them hosted over here, if that isn’t too outreagous of a proposal. The problem with where they are now is that it’s on my school’s server share. I don’t plan on going to school for the rest of my life, and I would like to find a good home for them.

For anybody interested, here is the URL https://mavdisk.mnsu.edu/longaj/cornerstone.htm

If somebody could get in contact with me about how to transfer the content over to here if interested, that would be great.

Another question I have is I have started writing a python tutorial geared toward C programmers, and I would like to host that here as well. Before I get going to far, I was wondering if it would better to do 5 or 6 tutorials to get a head start as far as content goes, or if I should just go ahead and run the first one through.

Pretty sure that the DevMaster.net wiki(http://www.devmaster.net/wiki/Main_Page) allows for all to add stuff, and a lot of the new content to this site goes there. So I would suggest going head first and adding your stuff to the wiki.

Yes, putting it up in the wiki allows for better integration as far as style is concerned as well.

You might want to check this out:

I believe your stuff would be very suitable for the wiki.

If you have problems with wiki editing drop me or Reedbeta a line…

While editing the wiki you should also check what content, your tutorials cover, is already present.

Going over your tutorials, they do look like great wiki material. The great part about putting them in a wiki is the ability to cross reference with everything. Makes things a lot more slick.

As for your other question. It’d be best to get at least 3 or so tutorials fleshed out before posting one. Because a lot of the times when you start a tutorial series you make one, then realize you can’t continue (for whatever reason).

You also might want to check out the SDL tutorial currently in the wiki and see how that overlaps with your tutorials. Maybe you can write a follow up on that article or consolidate your material with the stuff in the wiki
