Tutorials in this website
In my opinion the existing tutorials don't cover a lot of the basics for Maya. a lot of the tutorials contain these but they aren't specific about certain features and techniques...
I think It will help a lot to the community if there'll be a larger amount of short basic tutorials, And maybe even a thread for requests for tutorials...

This is probably due to the fact that most people who are here already have the basic prior knowledge of things already sorted.

What kind of basics are you looking for?

In the tutes Ive seen by Kurt he explains stuff clearly and concisely. I do my best as well when I explain stuff. Every tutor is different in their methods and may only explain in the way that they know best works for them.

Most of the tutes available are labelled, beginner or intermediate even advanced.

But also try to remember there are help files within Maya that will explain stuff on a base level, there are even tutorials with those files to get you started.

As for asking requests, visit the Suggestions thread...

I don't know about this. I've learnt a lot from these guys. But, you should always look around for other tutorials, because people always have different workflows and you can learn something different from each one.

Although, it would be cool to see some more people making tutorials, especially some more free ones.
