Brainstorming Ideas for Tutorials
Hello! Now that we have the namespace for our wiki, I am going to run through some ideas for how those tutorials can work. Suggest your own ideas and suggestions for improvements, or just ask questions. Your choice! ^u^
Contents[show] Step Progression
I like the idea of progression through the tutorials as a sort of step ladder. This means that at certain stages people can learn about certain things at relevant times, without being forced to learn them in a specific order.
Think of it like if you have a set of levels in a game, each one harder than the other and each is given a set time they would be suggested to be completed. HOWEVER, the player is allowed to enter any level whenever they like. That is how this system would work.
Using this method, certain pages would be linked to each other using hyper links and the reader would be able to find the next page easily, while they would have to search for tutorials on other subjects. A button on the homepage could be supplied to link people to the first page in this serious, and another to all tutorials on the wiki.
What I have right now as step progression is as follows: (Points under the same number are learned either on the same page or at the same time.)
1. General Introduction
Establish what's happening.
What the goal of the RP is.
2. Explain Good and Evil Characters
What it means to be good or evil.
What happens in the long run.
What is expected from either.
3. [Versions for Good/Evil] Making a Well Made Character with Context
OP vs Weak.
How to introduce the character.
4. [Versions for Good/Evil] Roleplaying
Superposts (What they are; ways to avoid them).
Detail, describing, and what to include in your posts.
5. [Versions for Good/Evil] Behavior and Combat
What often happens in both social and combat situations.
How both good and evil characters fight and how they each typically behave.
6. How to Host Threads.
How to create things such as species, factions, weapons, etc. could be done seperately, or after this chain.
Reguardless of whether this is chosen for our method of teaching on the wiki, the tutorial namespace will always be open for anyone to use, and create pages for. However, using this particular formula, nothing would be set into stone. Tutorials can be made for anything at any time, with supervision from admins.
Pages could be set up to tell people how to create tutorial pages and requests could be made to encourage people to create tutorial pages. Again, reguardless a badge could be set up for editing tutorial pages, but it would be much more important in this kind of set up. This take on tutorials is incredibly simplistic, so I don't have much else to say on it.
