I'm not sure how to format the tutorial. I guess hyperlink to chapters.

Do you want to create a new site for it, or will you throw it in one thread here, at Pixelation?

With the former option, I'd say yes, go with the links to chapters division -- or you can make it one page with subdivisions (something like all Wikipedia articles have).
With the latter, one chapter = one post seems the most reasonable way.

I think this would be a great time to create a  Wayofthepixel main website, just a few sections with resources and general theory like this.

Indeed, a simple website with this kinda stuff on would probably be worthwhile.

What about a moderated Wiki? That way the community can contribute without too much hassle.

We tried pixipedia back when pixelopolis first started and that did not work too well, but who knows.

I've always wished for a wikipedia based around pixel art. That way, whenever you need to explain something to someone, or you needed help yourself, you could just check the wiki instead of trying to search through all the long topics here. :P

If you guys got one up, I'd gladly help and contribute. =)

For me a pixiwiki would be a nightmare to keep moderated. I don't want that kind of responsibility. I think I'll just make it a small website or something. I kinda want to write about dithering more though, so I'm not done after all.

You've got a point- people would be editing articles, etc. A website would be just as useful though- can't wait.

Also, can't wait to read about dithering =)

Well, I think you could get the benefits of both -- If you could allow people to comment on each article, much like the "Talk" pages on Wikipedia or other MediaWiki based wikis, plans and details of future expanded content could be discussed there in a manageable way.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
