One Guide To Rule Them All


#1

Ah, my 400th post…
(Errr… 396th :D)

Lately, there have been a lot of great guides popping up on YYE. However, it will be hard for beginners to get all the information if it isn’t all in one place. Without further ado:

As always, I am looking for new guides and/or suggestions on this post. Thanks :slight_smile:

[s]Thanks guys! I’m gonna have to ask you to delete your replies so I can reply first (I want to add more guides but exceeded the maximum amount of characters (20,000))

Sorry for the inconvenience.

#3

Its always good to have good, long advice posts like this one. Good job man! :wink:


#4

Ahh yes, that did the trick :wink:

Btw, is this guide meant to be for YYE guides, or every guide on the net?


#5

It seems to be all guides.

Anybody else thing the title sounds like Lord of the Rings? “Seven guides of power made. One guide to rule them all” :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

Yes, I am a big LOTR fan (as you can see from my avatar).

On Topic: Since it seems like people want a more simple compilation of guides without so much text, I’ll be editing it and it will take up a WHOLE LOT less space… And be far easier to read and navigate.


#7

Everyone, please delete your posts to make space for DYonch!!!


#8

I think the two first posts should be enough room since he is changing it to have less text.


#9

Yup, it’s all good now.

However, I feel like it is very hard to read and find what guide you are looking for.
Any suggestions on organization?


#10

Maybe ABC order on the main topic.
Like mine would be ontests, and Kim-Lan’s would be forums, etc…


#11

I completely re-organized it. Any suggestions?


#12

Where’s my guide?


#13

My bad.

Just put it in.


#14

Awsome!
I think that’s all of the guides, good job.


#15

you could throw in a table of contents that had small codes next to each subject for ctrl+f

for example you could have:

5A guides…[5a]

you just highlight [5a] then ctrl+f and hit enter. would make navigation much quicker.

Wow. THIS IS CRAZY! How long did this take you?


#17

BUDP.


#18

Haha, that sounded funny!
Just like Samad’s BLUMP. :stuck_out_tongue:


#19

Whats a Blump?


#20

Any more guide suggestions?
