    are you asking everyone to start collecting tutorials? and i would love to make some, especially basics tutorials.

    I might start writing some tonight if you give me an example of a tutorial that you want in this book

    yeah basics tutorials would be great..
    btw gimper, i started that wiki a long time ago, but yall are free to use it if you like, i guess as a way to keep things organized on here. but i think it was deleted cause no one was using it. i'll make another one.

    http://www.wilberpedia.wikispaces.com/

    only members that i have given permission to can edit it.

    EDIT: I'm also not gonna accept anyone until i have the layout of the wiki setup, which i'll begin tomorrow morning. So I should have permissions ready in a day or so.

    i tried to contact gimp.org without success

    sorry, the email didn't seem to be getting through, maybe someone with more expertise on this area could assist?


    and what should I write tutorials about? I don't see a section dedicated to "basic tutorials" so...?

    basic tutorials, as in using certain tools and such, will be placed with the article about the tool. for example, who ever is in charge of writing the brushes page gets to make the brush tutorial. (We haven't gotten that far yet, though...)

    ah well..just help whenever ya can :(

    I'll try contacting them. ^-^

    I got a new suggestion :D
    as tripwire45 said here viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1718&p=15874#p15874
    I think you can even include FAQ's for beginners ;D
    You can get some ideas from the gimp help section ;)
