Tutorial Section

Any thoughts on putting up a tutorial only section?


Where people could post up a detailed tutorial of something that could be useful to others. You could even have a tutorial for different knots and members can post their way of doing it, or post a video they found useful.

It could be anything from knot tieing, boat mods, trailer mods, reel servicing, bait boards, rod storage or any DIY ideas that would benefit other forum members.

I no most people just like to google, but having people help out with finding good tutorials, making there own and helping people with questions would be great.

While tying fishing lines is going to bring out those who swear their knot is the best and only one to use, tying the boat up using rope there are only three that you need to know.

The bow line

Clove hitch or two half hitches

Round turn and two half hitches

If you can't do what is needed with them to secure your boat there is something wrong.

OK its there!

But has anyone put any thought into how the topics are going to be entered.
Is everyone just going to throw posts at it and we end up with a spasmotic thread?
It would be better if the contributing members could write it up in say "MS word" document first, and then post the topic. This is because you need time to think and compose a sensible post. So the first post needs to be how to upload a "MS word" document
After that members need to be able to modify the post if they feel the contents are wrong.
On the other hand if these tutorials are going to answer the questions, who's going to post up new content?

I will work on a couple soon

I will work on a couple soon enough and I'm sure other members will get onboard. I Don't think a word documnet is needed, just appropriate moderation of the threads. I don't think admins and moderators want to have to proof read and then upload the tutorials themselves.

I'd imagine the topics would be entered along the lines of ie 'How to service a spin reel' as the title followed by detailed steps and relevant pictures.

I think this section will be fairly 'safe' from spam.
