    I recently started a new project, tutorialhouse, located at http://tutorialhou.se. I need tutorials for it (of course), but I don't want to submit every tutorial on my own because that is not the point of the site, the point of the site should be people helping each other by making one big collection of tutorials.

    I already made an offer on this forum but no one seems interested so far, http://x10hosting.com/forums/marketplace/114854-need-tutorials-earn-unlimited-credits.html, anyone else got any ideas to encourage people?

    Actually it is a bit difficult to get people submitting tutorial and it is more difficult to find people from this forum because it is a forum for webmasters and so why someone here submit articles to your website when they already got website's to publish. Also there are certain sites (like triond and many others) that pay for your article. But then also some people left who don't want to work for money but for friendship. But such people are few among thousands.
    I think to attract people you need to have some contest. Don't give to everyone but give a lot to one person who post the best tutorial.

    Well, I got revenue sharing 50/50 with google adSense. Contest would be a good idea when there are more users, otherwise there would be hardly no contestants xD

    50% of the time the users ad shows, 50% of the time mine shows

    It means 1: all the rest. Is I'm right?

    I don't really know, I think it's only on their links their ad shows, and it only rotates between my ad and the submitted tutorials ad

    Instead of using x10's credit system who don't you make your own on your site. It's a good idea when you don't have the money to pay for articles and tutorials. There has to be some kind of reward or you'll end up with a few enthusiasts doing it just for fun.

    Well, that reward must be free, as I cannot really put too much money into it...
