Fellow deviants, I value your opinion! Please read this and let me know what you think!
I've decided to begin work on a tutorial website that allows designers to create and upload tutorials made for their favorite graphic editing programs such as Photoshop, Gimp, Corel Draw, Ms-Paint... Anything they want!
Submitters will be encouraged to link back to their own websites, portfolios, or dA accounts, bringing plenty of well deserved attention to their body of works!
Additionally, I want to offer features such as forums, and chatrooms.
Here's where your opinion counts:
1) Would you ever search for tutorials on a website like this?
2) Would you ever be inclined to submit tutorials to a site like this?
3) What other features would you like to see on a site like this that would make you more inclined to visit?
My only concern with making this site a reality is that bandwidth usage will be very large, thus making a website like this expensive to host. I'm toying with the idea of offering some subscription-only services, such as extra forums, commission boards, advertisement space for your gallery/website, access to source file downloads, and bi-monthly contests to win prizes such as clothing, videogames, subscriptions etc.
4) What other services would you want to have access to if you were a paying subscriber to such a site?
5) What would be a fair monthly subscription fee?
Thank you so much for your input! Your opinion counts Vectortrance.com
