Links to Useful DevForum Posts About Blender

I have noticed some people do not like these, I will not longer be making these. I might make some for youtube vids, but will not make these for devForum posts.

Updates

5/15/2020 - Massive changes, made the post more user-friendly. Added one more poll. Should look a lot better! Also, thanks everyone for liking the post, yup i edited the post too many times Feel free to share with friends!
5/18/2020 - one post added thx everyone for 50 likes

There are a lot of posts out there on the developer forum, and I’d like to kinda fit them into one post. This will for sure NOT cover all the blender stuff out there, but I will try to add as many useful ones as I can. If you found a post that is not included in this, please tell me, I will be grateful for your contribution! Also, if you find a post that is incorrect but included, also please tell me. I will have lots of #resources:community-tutorials. If you liked it, feel free to share with other who you think could use this! The main reason I am making this is because it is a pain for me to go through all of the posts about blender and bookmark them one by one.
If you don’t want your post in this for whatever reason, please tell me and I will remove it.

I had to delete some mentions because there is a 20 user mention limit.
Edit: If you want to learn more on blender, I highly suggest Grant Abbitt. He also has a website which can help a lot too: Website, Beginner Tutorial Series

and yes, I used the word “very” way to many times

Thank you for reading this, and I hope you like it! (and if it helped)

This guide is helpful, but it would be very helpful (as your poll puts it) if you organized it a bit more. Right now there are a bunch of titles and links, and it looks scary from just glancing at it. Maybe split it into different skills, or final product categories.

I will probably do that later, but I am pretty busy today so I will try to sort it out and organize it tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion!

SOLVED.

This very helpful for new Members in the Dev Forums, or developers looking for some guides on certain situations and support!

Thankyou for using the asset packs! :))

Edit : I’d organise tutorials into gfx, blender, accessories and stuff like that, really good work though this will help a lot of people.
