    I think this section is a VERY good addition to the top bar of links. It's quick and easy to access, and will help a lot of users out.

    I'm not sure what all will be changed from the "beta" version, but I think it will be a good idea to organize it into sections, mainly jailbreaking.

    Anyway, keep up the good work. Just my two cents.

    I think you should change the titles of the threads to include [Tutorial] which i know would take a lot of time but it would really help

    That wouldn't help really. All good, approved tutorials are visible in the Tutorials "section". It would be redundant to edit the names of those threads.

    A problem: Any thread tagged with Tutorial will show up there. I would create an actual static, non-vBulletin page and list them there.

    Not a concern, as only mods can tag threads.

    Oh. Well I thought anyone used to be able to tag threads. I remember tagging a thread a while ago.

    Yes, that was the case, but due to rampant abuse (outweighing the minimal benefits), bgizzle removed it. With the current, much cleaner approach, we can easily display all tutorials in one place, while leaving them in the right sections. Other "groups" of threads (e.g. editorials) could be created in the future.

    I never noticed not having tags. I think in a way it is good that they are off because some people were tagging useless things that are not worth describing. However, for the users that took a positive advantage of it, it was very useful.
