Default A Guide To Submitting Your Tutorial

When submitting a tutorial here at Heresy-Online we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines. This will ensure that your tutorial makes it to display in the shortest possible time.

1: Correct Grammar, Spelling and Syntax - This means capitalisation, punctuation, paragraphs and spell checking. It also means no 'net speak' or 'text speak'.
Please read through your tutorial before submitting it. If it does not flow and make sense to you then chances are it won't for anyone else.

2: Step By Step Pictures - They say a picture paints a thousand words. Clear, detailed photographs in the correct orientation will enhance your instructions dramatically.
All photo's for tutorials on Heresy need to be hosted from the Heresy Gallery. This will ensure that the photo's for a tutorial will always be available.

Each user has a link to their own Gallery Albums page called 'My Albums', found to the left of the page about half way down when you click the Gallery tab.

From here you can create a New Album to store your tutorial's photo's.

By making the album private it keeps the photo's hidden from the general gallery, preventing clutter.

If you can view a photo in the gallery then you can link it into a thread, regardless of whether you or someone else uploaded it.
Simply click on ANY photo in the gallery then left click once on it's Image link to the right of the photo (this will highlight it in blue).

Now, right click the blue highlighted link to display the actions menu and select Copy.

The link can then be pasted into your tutorial and should look something similar to this...[img]https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/gallery/data/663/medium/Ork Pilot.jpg[/img].

NOTE: If you have never used the gallery feature before you will find it a great tool for storing your hobby related photos.
You can find comprehensive instructions on using it's functions and features in the
Gallery Guide.

3: Details Details Details - A list of paints and the order you use them in does not qualify as a tutorial.
A list of paints, the mixes you use and the methods of applying the paint along with clear pictures of each step of the process IS a tutorial.

The more detailed you can be with how you achieved your masterpiece, the easier it is going to be for the folks following your tutorial to achieve the same results.

Please don't post up links to 'off-site blogs' or websites containing yours or someone elses tutorial - this is not because we don't want to show them off but simply that we want to ensure the content is always available on Heresy - all it takes is a problem with the remote tutorial and it becomes instantly unavailable.

4: Any Questions? - If you have any problems with how to go about submitting a tutorial please feel free to PM myself or one of the other Mods or Admins...we are here to help.
