What the F*˘₭ Is Going On?....First of all, I don't want to come across like I'm blaming any particular person. Honestly, I don't know who is capable of handling the task at hand. I would just like to know from whoever is able to do so, when are ReyRey's tutorials going to be uploaded to the Tuts section?
Here's what I'm thinking:
I've noticed that a lot (half or more) of the tutorials, in the "Tutorial" section, are geared toward basic skills within Photoshop. It seems that a few more tutorials like these:
might make the "non-beginner" users more likely to progress in Photoshop proficiency, rather than have their skills plateau.
Wouldn't a tutorial section, for advanced users (only accessible through Advantage, to help promote "true" membership to this wonderful site), help those of us who want to learn more, but lack a little creative initiative? By studying these tutorials, we could better understand and utilize higher functions of Photoshop, other than "Masking" and "Layer Blending Modes."
I know I haven't been a very active member, but I've been a "lurking member" for almost 3 years, and the one thing I've seen decline, "over the years," is the desire to help others learn. I've rarely sought help, and when I did seek it, I received more than adequate criticism (which I really appreciate; Tell me if my entries suck...please!). But, I've seen fewer numbers of threads asking for help on techniques; and the few threads I've seen, touching on some of the finer aspects of Photoshop, have gone to the graveyard, never seeming to arise again.
I know that making these changes would require a little bit more than clicking a mouse button; I'm not trying to harass. I would just really like to see the powers-at-be take an initiative toward making this site a center for communal learning, rather than who's the "voted -
Most Popular" chopper in Chopperland
This great community has a lot of potential, and I really love being a part, if just a small part, of it.
I don't want to sound like I'm kissing The Great ReyRey's ass, because I know there have been numerous other tut's done within the threads. It just seems the only tutorial-type threads I recall have been posted by Rey.
P.S. Mods, if this gets out of hand, please move to the MOD thread.
