    Agreed with lemonAdes post. We alreay have a quality / legendry general tutorial already. However i did find the easytoon tutorial on the explosion useful. Perhaps make a tut on EZT effects.

    Anyway nice to see such an effort to contribute.

    Sorry dude, but this was the biggest waste of time ever. We already have Baha's tutorial, and most of your examples weren't that great. Nice try, but we don't need it.
