Since this post is less likely to be seen by visitors to the site and is technically not what meta is for (we were working on the kinks at the time), there is now a community maintained wiki post on the main site listing many resources for blender. If you want to contribute to this, add your content there.
After going through faq and seeing questions What would be wrong with tutorials as long as they describe a reusable workflow? and What questions should be definitely off-topic?
Two points are fairly clear:
- The site isn't a ground for tutorials
- People are going to come by asking for them
To help out on that, and to help more experienced users who still have what to learn, I propose building a page where links to documentation, references and tutorial are available. This would also make the site more welcoming, instead of just closing the question.
Another option, just linking to blender.org/support/tutorials.
