Documentation Expansion Idea

Lately, I've been noticing that the documentation is rather, erm, "lacking" for Sandbox. This may be scaring off some potential users, as they need to figure mostly everything out themselves. I propose that we start an e-book community project of documentation for Sandbox, similar to Blender 3D: Noob to Pro. While I know that this would require a good amount of work, I think that we can do it if we all contribute some aspect of our Sandbox skills to the documentation. :D

So, comments? Suggestions? Is this a bad idea?

Not a bad ideal at all I 100% support, I'm still learning but I still know allot about sandbox so count me in.

the effort would be better spent improving the documentation on the wiki

Hence the term "expansion". That's exactly what I was thinking this project would be about, expanding the documentation contained in the wiki. I feel that the book format would be the easiest format for the end-user to use, and would be fairly easy to format as well, so that's why I suggested it. ;)

Anyone can contribute to the wiki, you just need to make an account. Please feel free to add whatever to it. The noob to pro is sequential but I'm not sure how well that would work for us unless we got a whole bunch of tutorials that worked in that order, instead of having info on specific topics. For now let's try to get info and more tutorials so that we could do something like eventually. The more help the better, Hirato and I can only do so much :D Take care!
