official tutorial program, more official tutorials
(Possibly this belongs in the main project account - not sure - or maybe Vectors team? let me know if I should move it) This is something I've been wanting for a long time, and have brought up from time to time, but it never seems to get any traction. It's come up again for me, in relation to the new forum.
I think the project needs a system or process which people who want to contribute, can follow, if they want to submit tutorials to become official tutorials (whether text or video). This would include a template, or at least some kind of official badge, guidelines for acceptable tutorials, and a reviewer or team of reviewers.
The countless 3rd party tutorials which are available around the internet are nice, but it's fairly hit and miss to find a good one. And of course the problem is that newbies have no idea whether a tutorial is good or not. Even my attempt to maintain a listing of curated tutorials (https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php) can't be on the website because they are all 3rd party links (subject to bitrot). If there were a process by which 3rd party tutorials can be made official, they could be on the website, and better available to users.
(Note, right now, it's already possible to upload any tutorial as a link, but that doesn't mean it's a good tutorial.)
I created and managed a process like I'm proposing on Inkscape Community, for the last 5 years. I have a list of guidelines for those who want to submit tutorials, and I review any submitted tutorials before they go live. Since the Inkscape Community forum is closing soon, I could just as easily handle a leadership role for a similar system for the website or project.
What else can I do to move this forward?
