Thanks for all the nice comments everyone, I'm blushing that anyone should think something that I've written should be made sticky. :p
Jethro: I know 1337 speak isn't very common (which is a good thing), but I thought I'd mention it because when it is used it makes text almost impossible to read. :)

well done pwaring... I pointed out a few corrections in that PM I sent..
Maybe you can get Negative to edit your post for you ?

I'll be updating the tutorial sometime later this week, my net access is playing up at the moment. :mad:
Stuff that needs doing:
- Correcting all spelling/grammar mistakes (I've corrected all the ones people sent me, but shoot me a PM if you find any more after the update)
- Add a small bit about paragraphs and line breaks (instead of mashing text together in one big mess)
- Add a bit about smilies and not using them too much
After this I should be adding another tutorial on either PHP, Perl or HTML.

Agreed, this post should be sticky, great job waring you might actually save us all a few hours of answering dumb questions.

Nice tutorial, Pwaring. Hopefully, this will help a lot of the newbies with their questions. :)

The tutorial is great. There only is one problem i think most "lamers" won't read it, because they're only interested in 'how to hack hotmail' and not about reading a 6ft tekst about how to ask questions.
Again the tutorial is great :)

Wonderfully said pwaring! I wish that this could be passed out to more than just the people here. I get so many questions, that sometimes I just start avoiding people, or get rude so that they will leave me alone. Not nice, but hey, you have to draw the line at some point.
Like I said, great Tut!

Neel definitely has got the point here. It doesn't help to make the thread sticky if the target group of people still don't read it. A table of contents at the beginning would be good and a little summary paragraph of all the things before it.

This is good stuff Pwaring. Should definitely help out lost/confused newbies, I hope it finds it's rightful place on AO.
