Default -How to Create A Popular Guide-

Click the image to open in full size.
-Thanks to ValentinaHug for this idea-

I'm sure that many of you like to make guides, it helps other members, and
occasionally gives you a rep point here and there.
But with ALL the guides here, don't you want to make one that
is noticed? One that is helpful? And lastly, one that alot of people will post on and thank you for? Well I sure would, and I'm sure that you would too!
So here's a guide on how to create a great guide!

|TOPIC|
Don't just post a guide about anything, because you think that
it will get you attention. Post ones that will hopefully HELP members
here, and maybe let their time on BI more fun! (:
Post things on subjects such as How to make things on graphic sites,
things about bears/PSIs, or how to do things on Bi. But don't make a guide on something that everyone already knows how to do, or one that has already been made. Look in the guides section and in the guides directory to make sure that the guide that you want to create hasn't already been done. You can ask other members what they would need help on to get an idea or what kind of guide to create!

|Description|
Be descriptive in your guides! If you have steps on how to do something
in the guide you create, be very descriptive on how to do these steps,
it will help the readers you are helping to understand what you are
talking about better and also be able to do it on their own!
Now, more isn't always better. Haven't you heard that saying? xD
Don't go on and on and on AND ON about the topic, nobody wants to read
a boring guide that goes on forever. Your guide doesn't have to be long,
it just needs to get your point across.

|Pictures!|
Pictures or graphics is a great way to help people understand your topic.
As for myself, I'm more of a "Monkey see, Monkey do" type of person. xD
If I see what I need to do in a picture, it's much easier for me to know
how to do it then to just read about it. And sometimes graphics just
make your guide look better, nobody wants to read a boring guide that
just has black text and nothing else. So remember to add pictures!

|Be Creative|
Show YOUR personality in your guide! Maybe post a joke here and there,
or say something about yourself (that is related to the topic) or even
mention other members. This will make people laugh, or just say
"HEY! I'M IN YOUR GUIDE!!" And believe it or not, being mentioned
could just make someone's day around here. : D
Use different text colors and fonts. Don't just use the original
"Black Tahoma" font, switch it around! But make sure that the text and colors
that you use is readable. Using Dark Green is better than using Yellow
because yellow isn't really readable, as you can see. (;

|Show Your Personality!|
Show your personality in your guides. If you're a funny person,
be funny! If you're an incredibly informal person, include a whole lot more information! Don't be average or boring in your guides, make the so that when people read them, they'll have an idea on who made it. Just be sure to get the point across and not go overboard!

I'm sure that nobody actually read that whole thing, but oh well.
Either way, hopefully it will help members and you guys will create some amazing guides!
I'll add more to this later if I get an idea, or if someone tells me something to add. xD
