"Regulating"

We need someone to police these links. On the one hand, it's valuable to have some links available. However, I do not want to turn this into free advertising for every start-up modsite. I have no idea how large a site Third Fallout is (don't speak German), but I only want it on this list if it really is a major German FO3 modsite.

Actually, mod hosts really don't seem appropriate here anyway. There should be a stickied list in the forums, as their was for Oblivion, and we can link to that. What we should have are links to other sites with tutorials. One of the CSwiki's biggest problems (IMO) is the lack of appropriate linking to other resources available.

Putting the page through Google's translator, a Geck tutorial was added on 12-27. Otherwise, it seems like a small mod host.
In a more general sense, TESNexus (and possibly PES) should stay up because it offers mod utilities (as well as tutorials). We might want to point to those categories specifically, but they are useful for mod making.

Then again, any mod utilities should have pages in the Mod Tools category, and link to the primary download sites.

I don't think we need links to mod sites at all. External tutorials can be listed here instead.
And something else; Are we going to allow links to sites in another language? Maybe they should get their own category or subpage.

There are three tutorials so far, fourth one is in progress. They cover the basics of interior building and there's an introduction to scripting. A fourth one is in the making that will cover world building. The writing is very good, but the tutorials only cover the basics. I see no reason not to list it here.

Echoing SnakeChomp, no need to judge the site - it's a link so "at your own risk" is implicit, I doubt there will be many personal sites, and alternatives are always good.
And in particular, are there any IRC channels yet? Should we link to the one for Oblivion?
--Haama 23:45, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
I'm going to add DarksideMoonbase.com to this page as I host my Fallout 3 tutorials there. If this is not appropriate someone please let me know and/or edit the page to remove my link. I'm also adding Novazone as it has a couple in-depth tutorials along with tutorial videos. Thanks.
