I think that this should be put into a wiki format. If its a wiki anyone can add what they know whenever they want.

what do you guys think? :question:

no. a forum is more organized. we're making it into an ebook, not a wiki. we already have a gimp wiki, and it doesnt really help. the ebook will be more organized and completely made by the community for all to view. right now we're just deciding what we think we should have as topics in the book, and then I will assign who is writing what. once everyone's written what they want, i and a select few will edit, correct, etc and i will put together the book. :D

@Siddharth:

Yep, GAP will do well. A lot of people have been asking about GAP. We should probably include how to install, set up, use, etc. As far as tutorials go, we won't have any. They only ones we'll have will be with the explanations of everything. As I said before, I might think about starting an advanced book after this one, if it turns out good. But hey, I like the idea of making a "Best of Gimp Tutorials" book. The only thing is I don't want to do that yet, as Gimp 2.5 and 2.6 will be released shortly, and I'd like to wait until after those are released before anything like that is made.

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...?
