    After weeks of consideration and thinking, we've finally come up with the results. So let me explain how the grading works.

    First of all, there's 5 different categories that you get points in:
    • Easy to follow - 20 max
    • Visually pleasing - 10 max
    • Information -20 max
    • Usefulness - 10 max
    • Factual Correctness - 10 max

    Since Bloodcount is not as experienced with the editor as I am, he looked solely at the layout and appearance and how easy it was to follow. This means he will only give points for "Easy to follow" and "Visually pleasing". Which means we give up to 10 points each for easy to follow and up to 5 points each for visually pleasing and then we add those together to get the score in that category.

    When it comes to Information, Usefulness and Factual Correctness, all points will come from me and not from Bloodcount.

    Along with the results in this thread, each contestant will get a PM containing comments on your own tutorial and reasonings of why we gave the grades we gave. You don't have to read it but it most likely contains a list of things you could improve on. Feel free to improve your tutorial after the result is given, this is encouraged.

    Finally, I just want to point out one thing. The results are final and wont be changed. Any arguments about the gradings will not be accepted so please refrain from doing so. Instead, be happy that you helped increase the information available on thehelper and your tutorial might help hundreds of people in the future. If you have questions about the gradings, you are welcome to PM me or Bloodcount about it in private.
