I think it would be better if there were some text boxes to state the target audience and additional information on the "New Tutorial" page like below:
Please describe your tutorial:
Title: [ (text box) ]
Tags: [ (text box) ]
Target audience: (choose one)
[(radio button)] Suitable for All users or No concern with users skill
[(radio button)] Beginners
[(radio button)] Intermediate users
[(radio button)] Advanced users
Additional information: (needed knowledge etc.)
[ (text box) ]
Based on what you purpose "the moderators" are going to have another job ahead of them. They don't have the time to review, test or rate them. Otherwise, they would be doing the same for "Ideas".
The community may provide feedback as to the tutorial itself, take it to the people let them decide.
My plan is...
The author determine the difficulty of tutorial by himself/herself at first.
Then, when Moderators do Official Review, if there are any tutorials which are proper to be changed the indication of difficulty level, Moderators will change it.
Ok so how is it determined as to the Difficulty? By whom? The author or the user?
Might want to take this question to the forums for discussion.
I also think that basically Tutorials should be written for Beginners.
But, Tutorials for Intermediate users or Advanced users also should be allowed to post, I think.
Actually many Tutorials have already been at Tutorials module, and their 'Difficulty Level' are various.
So I think it is need to show 'Difficulty Level' on each Tutorial.
how about tutorials written as though a novice would use them. keep it simple
