I just set out to make a tutorial mod (that could also double as a article/news system mod) when I found your post. But I see that it is from last year so I would like to know if you are still working on it or not. I would be glad to help if I could.
I want a to make (or find) a system where only registered, mod, or admin users can post links to tutorials (or news items) that they liked. So it would basically be a Tutorial Database. I think that would mean that we would need 1 or 2 more tables added to the database. And it would have to have some kind of allow/disallow feature. Uh, and also a category table.
I was working on a test version in phpbb of a couple of *free (almost) tutorial scripts, but I am to new to phpBB to do this alone. Basically, all that needs to be done to either one of these small scripts is to tie it into the user table of phpBB. (And fix the session management...)
If you want to look at the scripts you can download them here:

Any help or direction in this kind of project would help a lot! Thanks!
