I'm not sure if I follow. Are you asking if it will be approved, or if some date in the future this hypothetically approved tutorial gets removed?

I don't know - it depends how it reads and works. Have you submitted something already?

If the two bolded phrases are true, then of course it won't get deleted (unless the information itself is blatantly wrong). Our rules are that tutorials must be correct, well-written, and original (as in, you didn't copy and pastes someone's blog post).

We're not going to delete something that would be beneficial to have.

Well unless that *ONE* mod gets to it first. You know the one I am talking about... A hard bitten mod that plays by his own rules; bringing back old school street justice to the tutorials. He's a loose cannon for sure. One of these days The Chief will ask him to turn in his badge and his guns. :2guns:


I kid.. I kid.

The other thing to consider is whether your tutorial would simply rehash ground already covered by our current tutorials on sorting, of which we have a number.

ok. i looked for tutorials on sorting. i found some in C++ but none in java and other useful languages. so if i created an original sorting tutorial in java, it won't get deleted. Yes, i created Project Euler java tutorials. they got deleted. i don't want my time to be wasted again, but I like the concept of teaching others via my tutorials.

I thought that mod became an admin?

There is *always* that *one* mod :-)

@romil797, why did your tuts get deleted? If a tutorial was denied, usually a reason will be sent to you.

Ok, if your tutorials were deleted, the reason for removal should have been PM'd to you. But I can summarize. Remember those rules I posted earlier? If your tutorial got deleted, it's because it broke one of them. Either it wasn't correct, well-written, original, or any combination. I don't know which, I didn't see any of them.

Just make sure what you're posting is up to the same standards as the other tutorials, and they shouldn't get deleted.
