The Usage of This Template

I would like to look at and address the usage and/or wording of this template. I think this is great for opinionated articles especially ones that deal with stuff like wars or political conflicts. I honestly think we need a differently worded one for tutorials however because tutorials aren't really opinion per say as much as they are individual strategies that can be worked off of one another. A while ago, I suggested something along the lines of this:

Not everyone puzzles the same way.
Developing a unique approach to a puzzle or challenge that works for the individual is the most important aspect of mastering the craft.
These pictures and/or suggestions derive from personal opinions and are meant as guidelines only.
They are in no way hard and fast rules as to the "correct" way to do this puzzle or game action.

To be used for tutorials. Do we think that we want to have a separate one like that for tutorials and leave the one about opinions for conflicting articles and really opinionated ones? Or make it all the same template across the board? --Muffynz 20:24, 15 August 2007 (PDT)

I like the tutorial disclaimer. I think it's fine to have it separate from the general opinion tag. Feel free to run through the tutorials and pop in the new one. --Guppymomma 21:33, 15 August 2007 (PDT)
I personally think that what needs to be done is to draw a definite line of the difference between a tutorial, and a strategy guide, because I believe they are two very separate things. A tutorial is going to give the nuts and bolts, down to the bottom, basics on a puzzle. This is how you do it, this is what you accomplish, this is your end goal type of thing and deserves the template above. A strategy guide usually focuses more intently on one aspect of a puzzle and improving that. Otherwise, this is how most do it, this is how I and others do it better, which I feel would deserve the opinion template. Is that too fine a line to draw or really just as subjective as the articles we're talking about in the first place? --Muffynz 23:20, 15 August 2007 (PDT)
