So after seeing the new Rating Activities sub-forum being created, I was thinking, maybe we could do a similar thing for C&C. C&C is an incredibly active sub-forum, with plenty of new potential contributors. However, something I have been noticing lately is some rather sub-par quality analyses, not just in content, but in writing as well. I think that having a sort of C&C "tutoring" forum would really help new potential contributors to learn the ropes of C&C, and instead of getting off to a bad start, jump right in and excel. The reason I am proposing this is because I care a lot about C&C, and devote most of my time on Smogon to C&C. Smogon prides itself on quality content for users to peruse, and from what I've seen, there's been some less-than-satisfactory work going on-site, and there's only so much the GP and QC teams can do; ultimately, it's in the hands of the writer. While you may think that it may be easier to simply direct a newbie to a C&C mod, or seasoned contributors for advice, I think it is highly inefficient, especially as most of them have other things they need to do. I do realize that there are several articles in the Smog regarding the processes in C&C, but I don't think it's enough for most new users. I think potential new contributors would really benefit from live interaction with seasoned contributors and moderators in an environment where they can ask questions and have their stuff evaluated, etc. For example, we could have several different subsections dealing with the respective stages of analysis writing, i.e. Skeleton formatting, content, and QC, writing, grammar, and GP, etc. It would also be a lot easier to make it clear what is required of any potential new C&Cer. I know this may not seem "necessary" atm, but I think it's a really good idea to draw more people into the C&C forum, and improve the quality overall. Thoughts?
