Current NeedsEdit

  • For every page:
    • editors to improve the page
    • editors to review changes
  • For every module:
    • Make sure the module has navigation templates at the top and bottom. (Use NAV template. See the demo page for an example.)
    • Make sure the module order agrees with the Table of Contents and both printable versions (see below)
  • For every tutorial module:
    • Test with current stable release -- some tutorials are several years old.
    • Tutorials need to be taught visually. Overlay renders and screenshots with instructions. (See the demo page for an example).
  • Create beautiful renders and screenshots.
  • Add word definitions to the glossary page
  • There are additional suggestions at Blender 3D: Noob to Pro/Todo.
