This is the completely renovated FAQ for all of your Tutorial Submission Questions. If you are not able to find the answer to your question here, please check our #Official FAQ. If you are still having problems, please feel free to file an inquiry at our #Help Desk.

:bulletorange: How do I submit my tutorials?
:bulletorange: How many tutorials can I submit a day?
:bulletorange: Why use the Faves System and not the Gallery System?
:bulletorange: I still need help, where can I find it?







:bulletorange: What kind of material is acceptable here at TipsAndTricks?



:star: You CAN submit your tutorial if...

:bulletgreen: ...it teaches something.
:bulletgreen: ...it contains no mature/obscene/racially insensitive/offensive material.
:bulletgreen: ...it fits into one of the official dA Tutorial categories.

:star: You CAN NOT submit your tutorial if...

:bulletred: ...it does not teach anything. (Example: No artwork submissions)
:bulletred: ...it's only a before/after image. (Example: "I made this using this tutorial!")
:bulletred: ...the grammar is so poor it is unreadable*.

(*We only check English Language tutorials. Basically, we don't want any "Text Speech", or "Slang". Ex. "We werr goin' that way wen it hiddus.", or "kthnxbai". We do accept non-English tutorials!)




:bulletorange: How do I submit my tutorials?

It's easy! Simply follow the directions below. Just remember, we use the +Fave System, not the Gallery System. Also, be sure you are a member of TipsAndTricks before attempting to submit a tutorial.


1. Click on our Faves Tab located at the top of the page. (Or, click here! - tipsandtricks.deviantart.com/f… )

2. Click the '+ Suggest a Fave' button located on the top right side of the page.

3. The 'Choose a Deviation' Box will pop up on your computer screen. Make sure the 'submitting to' bar says 'Featured'.

4. Select a Tutorial Deviation you would like to submit.

5. Click 'Ok'


We'll check it over and if it meets our tutorial criteria, we'll add it up!





:bulletorange: How many tutorials can I submit a day?

Three. (3) We may or may not raise this in the future. At the moment, we think that a total of 21 total tutorial submissions a week is  good limit for anybody.





:bulletorange: Why use the +Faves System, and not the Gallery System?

Well, the answer is simple: we refuse to flood your inbox with tutorials that might not be relevant to you. That being said, we moved to the +Faves System when we became a Group so that people can submit their tutorials without having them sent to your inbox.

"Isn't that bad for the tutorial maker?" - you ask. The answer is yes, and no. It is 'bad' if you're looking for publicity for your tutorial, because it'll only be visited by the people that actually go through our collections looking for it. The good side is, your tutorial has been submitted to a group that is thoroughly selective in it's tutorial submissions. That's an accomplishment of it's own.

We cater to people who need to find what they're looking for fast. That's why we have so many collections on various subjects: so that really all the work you have to do is get here.

As you may or may not know, there is an upside to using the +Faves System for collecting, and not the Gallery System. By using the +Faves System, we gain the use of the Gallery System to bring you updates, interviews and important announcements to your gallery in a bright, up-beat manner. What other group does that?




:bulletorange: I still need help, where can I find it?

If you are not able to find the answer to your question here, please check our #Official FAQ. If you are still having problems, please feel free to file an inquiry at our #Help Desk.
