Non-publishing excuses

I must admit I'm mystified over the total lack of interest in publishing tutorials via our new system.

Perhaps you'll take a second to give me some input as to why you haven't tried your hand yet.

It looks like we have a trend here: fear.

All I can suggest is my own personal philosopy of "learn by teaching". Nothing crystalizes your technique like trying to explain it to someone else.

Just remember, if someone posts proof of your incompetence, you can quickly edit your tutorial so the next poster will disagree

And I guarantee you'll learn from that (I speak from experience).

Bit of a problem

I started to publish a tutorial, but I ran into a bit of a problem.

I got to the publish screen, but got an error as the page was loading. I offered to continue and it seemed to work, that is I got the page to author a tutorial, but the section where you would edit the meat of the tutorial wouldn't work.

There was a "Publish" button, so I pressed it thinking it might make the editing available, but no dice.

I tried in Safari, IE and Netscape (Mac)

Thanks, Margaret

Just go back to your page and hit Edit and paste it in again.

You've made my day!

Man, back at the lab it was always about "secrets."

So there you go dude, my last secret--stop yer complainin!'

You know the lab rejected my technique? I find that very funny, myself. I mean, they rejected that with a passion. WE CAN'T DO EYE ENHANCEMENT ON THE COMPUTER, it's written right here in this piece of slate! You could say I was fired over that tutorial, but it was just a gal threatened who later got fired herself, once tthe lab got bought out.

By the way, anybody hiring?

*sigh* *arrrgh* *sigh*

I almost included "But if I tell, then everyone will know" as one of the poll options, but decided against it (didn't want to give anyone ideas)

Sounds like your boss made a grammar error (not "we can't", but "we won't") somewhere along the line and it got petrified into dogma.

But shirley you have at least one more secret

HER NAME WAS SHIRLEY!

Woooo CRaaaZy!

Nah, most people here know far more than me, I think. I'm basically an idiot getting by with one secret that isn't a secret any longer.

But I'll fluff out my chest, scan the room left/right with crazzed eyes, and try to--um er um--fake it. (But since faking it is what's it's all about--I should be OK--um er um--I hope.)

Doug.....

Just a small thought, maybe if you would post a list of topics or subjects , that one could research and try their hand at creating a tutorial from the info they found.....
