Okay, I was going through your tutorials, and I noticed a lot of optimization that could be done, but the tutorial did not introduce why it could be done until later. Should we just leave it alone, make links to references to further optimization, or something else?
Each tutorial is a work in progress, so if you think it makes sense to change it, then make it happen. However, if you make any changes that you think would be controversial, it might be good to leave a comment on the page explaining your reasoning. If you don't mind me asking, what tutorials needed optimization?
Perhaps I exaggerated when I said a lot, but I was actually talking about the optimization page itself. Since optimizations are introduced one at a time, the examples at the beggining could be changed much more to save space. The only problem is that the optimizations would not make sense until they read further.
The reasoning for that is when I put the optimization page together, I wanted the examples to spell out each optimization as neatly as possible; they're not meant to be full programs, with all of the optimizations administered. If you wanted to change the optimization page, I would find better examples to illustrate the optimizations; some of the current ones are pretty poor.
Why does everybody have the ability to edit pages. Yesterday I made about three changes before I relized that I was not logged in. I think being a member should be a requirement.
