It would be cool if there was a forum dedicated for getting help on writing tutorial/article. With such a forum, it would be possible to ask some peoples to read our article/tutorial to get feedback and clarify some things before officially posting it to the general public.
This is just an example. Like I once said that I was writing a Neural Network related articles, which unfortunately got delayed(had less time, files got deleted....but it's still coming). I don't write articles about something I don't completely understand, and by such, I asked for help about the Back Propagation algorithm. I asked for help in this forum(Suggestions & Feedback) but it is not really the best place. And by such, I suggest to create a new forum dedicated at helping building articles/tutorials. I think it would encourage people to write articles/tutorials, and it might even enhance the quality of such things. I know that this site is dedicated for devlopment in general, but I think it's something that is missing in most development site.

perhaps you would volunteer to moderate that forum ???

Yes, I might help to moderate that forum, but as I said on another post, I'm rather computerless right now. I will try to help out in any way I can.

Nice idea. Instead of creating a new forum, how about renaming the "Suggested Articles/Tutorials" (since it's hardly ever used) to "Article Feedback & Suggested Articles"?

That would be a good start. And even though free time has become something rare for me, I am volunteering to moderate the "Article Feedback & Suggested Articles", but also to help peoples with their articles too.

Just in case you didn't notice, the forum title has changed so that it now serves as a platform for article help as well as suggestions.
Thanks for your suggestion.
