When the guide is created, forum version of draft guide is created here too. To preserve quality of future guides, give creative people much needed space and comfortable atmosphere to refine their works of art, we have decided to implement few small rules to ensure that things are working smooth.
In addition to Global Forum rules, these specific rules apply here due to the nature of this section of the forums:
Each draft guide in his starting version should contain a minimum of 250 characters, or 100 words, whichever is better. If these simple conditions are not met within few days of it`s creation, they will be deleted on both forum and guide section pages.
As global rules apply, intentional spam or trolling in any way will not be tolerated. People who try to make decent guides in here expect your creative and helpful insight, and it`s your job to ensure it.
To help fill our guide database and earn recognition for great writing, the following is a list of heroes without one or multiple published guides. In addition to regular Spotlighting, both new and old high-quality guides about these heroes will also be considered for a Spotlight.

Uh, excuse me, Mr. Justin but, currently I was attempting to write a Leshrac guide. But when I submitted my draft guide at http://www.playdota.com/add/guide by pressing ok, it logged me out and redirected me at the main forum. ATM I saved it as a draft in my e-mail. Can you please help me?
I am someone who logs in once every full moon, because I prefer to view the forums as a guest... if ever that I could actually view the forums... my mother watches every move I make... damn, is life this hard?
Mini-guides would help as well? (skill, item, little strategy and not much pics). As I'm at home for only for the weekends which leaves me little time, I don't even have time to update my guide to 6.63
May I feel free to ask this: Can I make guides but just with text. Explaining what to make, what to do etc... Will cover my fav KotL first! I pretty much suck with computers and stuff. Only thing I know is how to play DOTA. So asking, can I just make a guide like a word doc, without any icons and stuffs?
How do I get started writing a guide?
You have to create your guide using the Main Site Editor, which you can find here: http://www.playdota.com/add/guide. When you click the OK button, the guide will be posted in "Draft Mode" and then a thread will be created in Draft Guides subforum.
Why isn't Yurnero on this list? There's only one guide on him, except for mine, and that one is a)in no way in-depth and b)a bit outdated.
Plus, Lina and Prophet don't have a guide at all and aren't here as well.
