Hopefully a nice moderator will pin this.
After discussing this idea with a few of the others who supply information here, I've decided to start this tutorial thread where members can add their own tutorials, hopefully to become a resource for newer members to read.
ANYONE IS WELCOME TO POST TUTORIALS HERE THAT THEY THINK CAN HELP THE MANDO COMMUNITY.
Please, please do not post comments in this thread, as it will detract from the information that this thread entails. If you have a comment to make, please PM the person who created that topic, especially if they need to make a correction.
Also those who do post here, please don't encourage people to post by responding to any posts directed to them (unless of course you choose to PM them).
I will begin with the glossary and post my molding tutorials here, the best turorials are the ones that have photos or illustrations, so please keep that in mind before posting your tutorial, prior planning helps a lot too. Also, it might be wise to post something like:
PLEASE PM YOURNAME IF YOU THINK SOMETHING NEEDS ADDING OR EDITING
At the end
To publicly answer a few questions I had via PM.
1. So, what types of tutorial can I put in there?
Anything that has to do with costume building, obviously, referencing Mandalorian armour, but if you think people can get something out of how you wired your iron man eye lights, then post it.
2. How should I set it out?
It needs to be easy to understand, any sort of text talk is a no-no, as foreign members may not pick up your references. It's usually best to do it in a structured way, such as a list or step by step and, of course, a picture tells a thousand words.
3. I'm not sure if what I have as a tutorial is good enough
Post it anyway, you never know, your little tidbit and suggestion may save someone a few hours of frustration and this is a community to share your ideas and help each other to build great armour.
4. Can I post advice ?
Yes, but best make sure it is thorough and your reasons are explained properly, A'den Skirata's helmet advice on the Mercs forum is a good example.
Finally, if you are reading this in hopes of finding a how to that will help you then good luck!
