Maybe it would be good thing to have sticky topics in the subforums. For example, many novices ask questions about w32dasm and hiew because they read old tutorials, then they ask about unknown packers and how to unpack them. They don't know that Olly is better than w32dasm which is from past century, they never heard for PEiD, LordPE and ImpREC, and similar tools. One short sticky topic which would explain to them what tools to use would be useful to them. Also that kind of topic can wrote who ever wants and think that he have enough knowledge.
I would also like to see more asm coding articles. I tried to learn some asm about year ago, but give up because limited number of tutorials (mostly of them are "Hello world"). It would be nice that somebody can write couple simple tutorials, how to make simple dialog box which take some chars and give some output. It would be good starting point for beginners who want to write keygens in asm or to code crackmes.
About layout/themes... everything is still standard because we haven't put any effort in the 'looks' yet. Thats for a later phase, right now I prefer the content to be larger first.
@ haggar :
Some good ideas there =)
I think the first part is kinda what we want to do with the FAQ section. Some basic Q&A's about unpacking would be a good start for an unpacking FAQ.
All input is welcome and can be submitted by PM'ing it to me through forum, or mail it to me.
About the coding tutorials, I cannot agree more
I think I'll wrap up an example of a keygen skelet in a tutorial. Everybody that wants to write an ASM coding related article is welcome ofcourse. _________________ Ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power
It would be nice to see the attachments named correctly.
I.e. 20050407132928300.zip :---> Wot is that i wonder *?
First of all this only applies for attachments to tutorial stories. Its merely a timestamp when the binary is submitted (which is a unique filename, thus ideal for storing like this).
Note that all files in the download section does keep its original name (though its also stored in such timestamp filename on the server) _________________ Ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power
I think it would be nice to categorize the tutorials, as in the old site...
It is much easier to have, for example, all the unpacking tutorials together...
Anyway, the new site is nice(it even supports Greek in the menu ) _________________ PLAY WITH THE BEST, LOSE LIKE THE REST (I did...)
Categorizing tutorials gives a good overview indeed, but on the other hand it makes it harder to find the new material.
And what we learned from the old BiW site is that not every tutorial is easily categorized. (Some fit in multiple categories, some don't fit in any)
The effort put into categorizing tutorials is to large considering the benefit. Using a search function is a better option imho.
If you want to see all tutorials dealing with unpacking you could enter 'unpacking' in the search-box (topleft) :
