This site does have a lot of nice articles that relate to advanced topics but I think having some things directly in the tutorial would be very helpful. I agree with CoryMathews that advice from several people on any given topic would be nice. It would be great to be able to see two or three different ways to accomplish the same goal.
To those of you who have looked at this so far. What do you think would be the best way of going about this? I think that setting up a wiki might be the easiest but if anybody has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Like I said, I'm still learning so I don't know how much I will be able to help but I'll do everything I can.
I've never been a fan of Wiki for non publicly editable content. These tutorials would be closed, only editable by certain people, so the whole point of wiki would be null. I don't think we should go too much farther without talking to Wildhoney first, since any moves would require his aproval and help.
Should this work, do you want to take the lead? If you don't want to, I would be happy to take initiave in getting this started.
