Thank you to those who sent me e-mails and/or left comments after my ranty post yesterday. I appreciate that effort that it takes to try and be sympathetic or supportive so it’s always nice when I’m on the receiving end of that good will. I chilled out with some beans on toast and an evening of Wii Play/Wii Sports.
Primarily though, this is a thank you to those who left your thoughts on my post about Using Web Tutorials. I never realised how strongly some of you feel, but it was quite nice to see that about 98% of you actively take part in/encourage crediting. It was somewhat odd that a few of you took it upon yourselves to assume my point of view when I deliberately avoided posting it, but such is the nature of blogging I guess.
For the record, I believe in crediting where it’s due. I also think something only becomes mine if I use the knowledge learnt to create something new; simply modifying it doesn’t change the underlying structure — or in the case of HTML/PHP/etc tutorials — the code. That said, I’ve never actively encouraged people to credit tutorialtastic which is why it always surprises me when people do :)
