    Wait?
    The tutorial section is not yet closed so can people who made a tutorial like me still edit our tutorials?

    I'll probably be giving away whatever I win(since I'm probably not going to win the DSTWO and I already have an acekard) here so stay tuned! [​IMG]

    You ended the competition a little early. The first post says 23:59:59 on May 22nd is the end time.
    Regardless, my tutorial was already there. I just had to fix all of the formatting.

    Edit: Oh, yeah, GMT. I run on PST. Always gets me.

    Edit 2: Actually, a question. My tutorial was all text, as I hadn't really had the time to fix all the BBCode after the anchor code incident. My modifications were more than a little minor, having to add all of the code back in. Or does that still count as minor? My tutorial is at final submission status at this point. Just wanna make sure I didn't screw up.

    Only 80 entries - we've all got a chance then.....

    Funny enough I was thinking the same thing - I only entered for fun, but IF I win something - depending on what it is of course - I'm thinking of passing the prize onto a certain some1 (if he doesn't win anything that is) who done a great guide & most probably deserve it more than me.... I've already got a LEDS2, as well as a Acekard 2i and r4i (both non-3DS though) so don't really need more of those

    The NDS section is the most competitive one, I have like 20% chance of winning with my guide which wasn't so special, but I'll keep my hopes up. Anything is fine if I win, only have a DSTT and Ez Flash V, lost AceKard2i while I was travelling .-.

    Well, there are only 7 entrants in the PS3 section. One is incomplete, and therefore ineligible. So which leaves six. So he has a 5/6 chance to win something. Judging from the quality of the guides, it's quite simple to see his guide is of higher quality than at least 2 or 3 of the other entrants.

    Judging from this, he has a VERY big chance of winning. Not totally certain, but the chance he WONT win anything is minute. About as small as the dot at the end of this sentence.

    Anyways, due to the DS section's competitiveness, I'm totally uncertain if I will win anything or not.

    Hopefully, I win something. I did a lot of work on my Wii Beginners Guide & FAQ. I also submitted two other guides (How to record DS games and How to run GBA games on your DS) although the recording guide is incomplete. I was planning on adding a section on recording with FRAPS and CamStudio.

    Luckily, they are giving away 25 prizes so I have a decent chance of winning. Good luck to everyone that entered!

    I never had a chance to enter, being all to busy with school and lack of in-depth knowledge in something useful for you guys [​IMG]
    I have two guides I'm "voting" for, if I could

    TT-TT Does that mean I can't really update my guide until after June 1st?

    You can edit layout, design and typos, that's what Costello pointed out. [​IMG]

    Is it just me or was a "Rating" feature just added to threads in the Tutorials & FAQs boards? (Maybe its been there a while and I just didn't notice, but I don't think so...) - Will ratings of threads be taken into account in judging?

    I saw this too just now, funny, but I wonder if it will ... It can't be right? I mean, there are judges.
