Great initiative! With some guidelines on how to create them so we get a
similar look'n'feel I would try to do some tutorials.

I vote strongly against background music in tutorials. Especially if you do
a voice over of what you are doing or when the tutorial is concerning audio
or video production, I think it's unnecessary and collide with the
information you are trying to get through.
