Through the joint efforts of myself and ClayOgre we now have yet another index in place. Thankfully this wasn't as exhausting as the User Tuts one, so no need to find a corner to collapse in.

I live in England, where the date format is DD/MM/YY.

06/05 is referring to the 6th of May, not the 5th of June.

I am new to the Gimp community but I am already inspired by what I have seen! This applies to both the software (I will be using the Windows version - still MS dependent), and the community. Because I am new, I welcome any resources that I can find, to shorten the learning period. Consequently, I was happy to run across this forum, and the list in this thread.

I am new to the Gimp, but I am a "fossil" of the computer industry, having started in 1964 with I.B.M.! Throughout my lengthy career, I have focused mainly on systems engineering/programming, and as a result, I have had to research/learn many software packages.

One of the features, of any documentation for a software package, which I have found to be invaluable, is a good accompanying index. That is why I referred to the main content of this thread as a "list" above. The difference, as I am sure you all know, is that an "index" is an "organized list". At a minimum, a list needs to be alphabetized, and the entry descriptions need to be worded more precisely (to assist in the "look-up" process), before it can properly be called an index.

For example: "Creating layers with the Gimp" should be re-worded as something like "Layers, creating with the Gimp"

Please accept this as an attempt at constructive criticism rather than a "put-down". Also, please forgive me if I am "speaking out of turn", or if I appear to be "lecturing", I don't want to get off on the wrong foot with this community, because I'm looking forward to a lengthy involvement in it.

I suppose one could consider it a difference of approach. I did consider both formats. However, I considered the format used a better option. The reason being that when searching for a particular something people have a general idea of the ballpark they are looking for.

E.G. a user may be looking for tricks on working with text, or a need to animate something. The format used breaks down the content into these defined categories. Even when browsing these categories for what they are after (which may be no more specific than "I want some cool text") they may also see other related tutorials that interest them. If I'm looking for "Rust Style Text" and I also glance and see "Frosty Text" I might think that might be another text style to try as well for whatever project(s) I'm working on. In an alphabetical format those two tutorials would be separate. In an alphabetical format related tutorials, and as such tutorials that may be of interest to try for results in the same area, would be spread out rather than kept neatly together.

In terms of the order of the categories themselves, this order was decided upon based on what I thought would be the popularity of each category.

Plus if someone is looking for something exact then the search feature of any browser is more superior than sifting through any index or list, regardless of how it may be sorted.

Do not think I am merely disregarding your opinion though without due thought on the matter. You are welcome to your opinion, and always encouraged to express it. I am merely expressing my reasonings for the current format.

I am fairly new to GIMP in the means of the knowlodge and skill that I have, and I have learned everything that I know by these tutorials. I think it's amazing and wonderful that this site is all for GIMP and that it has things ranging from the beginner things to the master things, therefore having something for everything. I have especially used the tutorials from this list to learn and make new things, and I just want to say thank you to Fatal Edge for creating this site and to everyone that makes tutorials for providing the learning experiances. And last, but not least, all of ou here for being for friendly and just all over pretty much amazing.

With Love And Graditude,

- Johannah
