Wow, now that is some nice feedback, even if it is negative!
If the tutorials do not work, they should definitely be fixed. It's
frustrating that the tutorials that so many people have worked on still
do not work.

Indeed, I did not expect that people would be able to start a new script
from scratch. Usually, one takes a working script as basis and starts
modifying it to your own needs. I thought that the scripts from the
"Introduction to ESPResSo" session should help with that.

Not really. That session is more intended for people that already have
an idea what they want to do with ESPResSo to get started. I do not
expect that they would come out of the session with a working script,
but more with an idea how to employ ESPResSo for their own problem. Or
maybe somebody who already has tsrated can get his script fixed, or at
least reviewed.

Yes, definitely!
