    I think you recently took some steps BACKWARD, Flame_Phoenix.

    etc. etc. etc.

    In my opinion the above are examples of (what I personally would consider to be) "vertical spam."

    Those portions of the tutorial
    1. Distract the reader's attention.
    2. Add unnecessary vertical lines to the document, making it more difficult to read.
    3. Do not DESCRIBE anything: they simply exist.

    If you wish to leave them, I would recommend providing DETAIL for those items:
    • (image1) >===> (detailed description of image1.)
    • "Section 2" >===> accurate description/title for Section 2.

    The [goto] and [point] tags are temporarily disabled. They will be restored as Ralle exterminates the bugs related to the recent vBulletin upgrade.

    WolveRabid the ---------------------------------------- are not there just to spam or to distract readers attention. They have a reason of being there, which is to separate the different sections of my tutorial. The simple------------ informs me and other people about when a section ends and about when a sections starts. Their main reason is not to simply exist, it is to separate and i believe they make the reading of the tutorial easier for everyone.
    I don't want this to be considered as spam, because it is not meant to be it. In other websites there is a command that creates an horizontal line in the document, separating it in two different sections. Because I couldn't find that command available here, I decided to create the line myself.
    I can give more detail to the separating lines, so than people don't think it's just another line in the tutorial. I don't know what else i can do.

    In fact the Chieftain has included a vBulletin horizontal rule tag for us to use.

    [hr]500[/hr]

    produces this horizontal rule:



    Please keep horizontal rule widths to 640 pixels or less.

    It is I that should be thanking you xXShogunXx for telling me that. It is really very encouraging. But why do only this ? Keep your eyes in my tutorial, i will soon add path blockers sonkan1 suggested, path blockers are not really 100% necessary but they help a map to reach perfection. Soon, my next tutorials will be about making Hero reviver systems or auras (all kinds of auras day/night triggered, non triggered, etc.) or dueling systems for heroes and teams. Hope you enjoy it too when the time comes. Another thing i was not able to read your message, can you send it again please ?

    No problem Xuji. It i s always a pleasure to help good people.
    Well Guys I've finished my last section - the Path Blockers. Please feel free to comment it, I want to make my tutorial as best as possible.
    With this last section finished i think i have finally ended my tutorial. However, there is one remaining question: are the jump tags (go to) already working ??? I would like to use them in my tutorial.
    By the way, how can i create a movie for my tutorial ?
