I think the Wiki(Wikipedia) thing would be good.
There can also be small example Movies put into the design of it etc... and some good explaination.

I got TikiWiki, but I don't know how to use it. I think you guys can submit stuff on it. Not sure though.

Edit: I can't install MediaWiki because it's a server software and I don't have shell access.

Ok so the site is going to be hosted on hl2files.com when it's done. The domain will be esfdb.hl2files.com

Some writing for the site is finished now and we thought of yet another idea that could go on the site. We're going to record 1 v 1's (It'll be recorded from the players actual screen, not in spec mode) and occasionally stop the fight and explain why one person got hit or why one person did what they did. It should be a good learning tool and if not, it'll atleast be cool.

That works. My apologies for not making anything and showing you yet, I work all day Monday through Friday, so I only have the weekends to do anything.

Welcome Back Dogma.

And how are we going to record? Fraps is way better than the Half-life recording system, but fraps destroys fps. =/ I don't know any better recording program.

Okay, I don't know if this has been suggested, but I've got an idea.

In the database, you could have short movie clips, or even GIFs, that show you how to do the moves.

..That's assuming you guys are making a list of moves, of course.

Guys, here's motivation for you. Hold on to your faces, I'm about to hit y'all with some patented Flawless Logic.

You guys make this database, and fill it up with all sorts of tips and tricks, and I can get better at ESF. I get better at ESF, I can test 1.3 harder. I test 1.3 harder, you get a more awesome 1.3, and possibly even sooner.

Okay, now get on it guys, I'ma holster up my Flawless Logic Guns (patent pending).

You record a demo of yourself playing, then play the demo and record with fraps.
