Description of allowed licenses
This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to “copyleft” free and open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. This is the license used by Wikipedia, and is recommended for materials that would benefit from incorporating content from Wikipedia and similarly licensed projects.
Why those two licenses? What is my interest in publishing my tutorials under these licenses? Read our vision and share your thoughts on this page.
How to pick the perfect name for your tutorial
For the sake of consistency and search optimization, take the time to think about the name of your tutorial:
1. If your tutorial concerns the fabrication of an object:
1.1 Enter the name of the object directly. Do not precede the name with an article (a, the).
- Do: Wood table
- Don't: A wood table
1.2 Do not start the name of your tutorial with the verbs "Make", "Build", "Create", etc. The verb doesn't provide useful information to the user since they already know that they are looking to "make" or "build" something.
- Do: Wood table
- Don't: Make a wood table
1.3 Specify the main material used, to clarify what your tutorial is about
- Prefer: Table made from oak and metal
- Rather than: Table in wood
2. If your tutorial concerns a technique:
2.1 Always start with an infinitive verb that describes the technique.
2.2 Do not start the name of your tutorial by the verbs "Learn", "How to", etc. The verb doesn't provide useful information to the user, since they already know that they are looking to "Learn" something.
- Prefer: Sand down a table
- Rather than: How to sand down a table
