Starcraft II Tutorials Contest - Results

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.

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Lmao thats somethin right there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by standards LOL
  • The Helper The Helper:
    looks like The Burrito has been shared to facebook lol I am getting the facebook bots in now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
