    Every tutorial should be a sequence of simple steps. I certainly do not want to write convoluted tutorials. I did what Joomla asked, active voice and minimalist text. At least I have provided documentation that was accepted by one of the most popular php projects. I don’t see any other candidates posting anything similar.

    Yes I will be more of a keep of keys, but I will still add my own tutorials and maintain the finder scripts. But why rewrite tutorials that already exist on the internet?

    That article (odt file) is more or less a sequence of ten simple steps. Not really a tutorial that gives us an idea of your writing capacity/quality.

    Although, I suppose it’s rather presumptuous of us all to be judging your writing capabilities when it doesn’t really matter if you don’t plan on writing any tutorials yourself.

    So… is that your stance? You’ll be more or less the keeper of keys? (Aside from the program finder script I mean)

    No and it shouldn’t matter. The resources page is a place for resources, not fancy layouts.

    Funny, it wasn’t working the other day. Oh well. Can we see a website that you yourself designed, that’s not based of off a template?

    Task 56 is a tutorial written for “dummies”. Therefore I won’t do the peanut butter tutorial, although I have done it before.

    Since you cannot find #56 I will post a direct link.

    I looked all through that site and couldn’t find a #56, even when did find a list of guidelines with numbers, 56 was edited out.

    So again I pose to you the question, are you an experienced writer, and can you give some examples of your writing. If you have no examples to give, then write one. Write an extensive tutorial on how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (directed at someone who has never made a sandwich before, assuming that you have to take them through it every step of the way…every tedious thing that you would assume they would know, without being patronizing.) or an actual brickfilming tutorial.

    I don’t honestly think the subject matters as much as the content and mechanics, how specific can you be?

    -Trill, wondering if brianfast could do the PB&J tutorial, it’s harder than it sounds.

    Yes I have written articles for various open source projects. A recent example is my work for Joomla! in the Google Highly Open Participation Contest.

    If you are really interested it is posted under task number 56 on this site

    Legosjedi: I do not have any examples of my work online. But at my temporary website you can see a template that I bought from someone and I have been modifying. And yeah, I was inspired to use the same web 2.0 generator as you. :)

    Once you have answered the minimum three questions,

    I’m not sure why you’ve chosen to arbitrarily leave some of these questions out of your campaign threads, and others follow the guidelines. But the guidelines are there for a reason, to create continuity through all of the campaign threads. To display how each candidates would respond to the same question and create a basis for the voters to choose who they think is the best candidate.

    Well I believe I answered some of these in the text but fine:

    Q:What experience do you have relating to Film Resources?
    A:I have known HTML for 5 years. I have been editing videos at a high level for around 2 years. My programming knowledge has come in bits and pieces for a while now.

    Q:How much time would you be able to spend performing your duties as Minister of Film resources?
    A: Enough time on weekends to keep it up to date.

    Q:What unique character qualities are you able to contribute to the Ministry?
    A: I regularly use the 3 major operating systems (MacOSX,Linux,Windows). Also I have some ideas that will help people select codecs, software and hardware easier. I will also cover non-proprietary solutions for people that value that.

    Q:What is your motivation for running for Minister of Film Resources?
    A: Film making is one of my hobbies, the resources page could really use improvement.
