Talk:Tutorial: Step-by-step to create a timer-based camera
Hamishwillee - Well thought out
As you say, its a fairly simple example, but its well thought out, and pretty easy for even new users to replicate. I also like the little things, like hiding the camera if its having trouble saving - if this was happening on N8 I'd suggest we posted a bug.
Personally I'd prefer a little more description of the first step - ie a brief overview of the Camera element, the settings you've chosen, and how the code works.
The other main suggestions for improvement are:
- Add references - first time you mention QML Camera Element, link to the reference docs, same for any other reference
- We user the Icode for marking up in-line text - use this for second and subsequent mentions of api elements
- For mentioning files/pages, I usually use bold text - so Page 1.

Hi Hamish, Thank you for the feedback, very much appreciated.
By the way, is there a way to be notified of new comments? It always takes me months to see comments on my other articles...Slocan.

Hamishwillee - New comments?
You should be automatically notified if you edit or add a comment to an article - its defined in the watchlist tab here: Special:Preferences
That said, you're only notified once, for the last change. If you don't go to the page again, you don't get any more emails. Its not a great system.
