We need more than one tutorial, it would look to bare if we had one per section, plus what if there are people who don't really know what the tutorial name really means and they keep looking for the particular section they need help on,
So we should flood the site with useless tutorials in order to make the site "look" useful??

Why not have multiple tutorials explaining the same thing, if they are explained in different ways or different methods? All people learn and teach things in different ways, some people click with some ways of teaching, others click with others.
In short, having multiple tutorials on the same thing can be better for the readers of them. The only reason you don't understand is because you probably already know how to do it, and I bet, if you were to have your way and just keep the one tutorial; that it would suit your learning style and not the learning style of many others.
we shouldn't need a hundred tus for one job. wikipedia doesnt have hundreds of articals on one subject

Agreed. we have 4 tuts for adding custom decals. c'mon one is ok
Maybe one is too complicated than another? Or, maybe one is easier for beginners, and one is for experienced people. Just leave it how it is.

There both simular. and say the exect same thing.
Only a idiot will need alot of tuts telling him to do the exect same thing.
And since when don't tutorials tutor people. At least get rid of the lowest detailed ones.
Also Lecedis, there all intermetdiat tutorials, But i see your point.
So why should we need 50 odd tutorials Telling a user how to make a simple ladder. Simple to get points, We need to get rid of alot of these, but some that are easy and simple to understand can stay. The ones with minumum effort should go.
So you're basing your whole argument on one case, involving two tutorials. Like I said before as well, if there is a the slightest of difference in them, even in the way something is explained the tutorial should say, simply because they could help different people.
Oh and by the way, your example is flawed. One is done using Photoshop, the other, Gimp. You've just proved my point more than your own.

I understand mods cant go around deleting tuts because they dont like them but im talking to the FPSB members. Everyone talks about how they need to get rid of useless crap....well one way to solve taht would be to stop submittting the crap...
It's not normally the regular/veteran users that submit the crap, it's normally new users trying to get popular or points.
