Indeed. They are both overly ambitious projects with very vague descriptions what they will do. If you have not coded say 5,000 to 10,000 lines of code in the past, not cut and paste, and mainly in C/C++, you will never complete it. Start with something small. Arduino is not legos, you can't just plug everything together and expect them to "work".
Learn how to use C++ properly, in a universally accepted way, conforming to standards.
Use an outdated version of Arduino so many reference articles will actually compile.
The real problem is that people don't read any of the advice that's already available and that experience strongly suggests that they won't read any new / additional advice either.
There is a large blue patch at the top of the forum pages - how about using it to display a "tip of the day" which could be a selection from the existing stickies and could include stuff like Jack Christensen is suggesting. There is a better chance that such tips would be read.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Have you noticed that the ones who apologist for there lack of English skills are often the best.

Irony/Sarcasm is good for entertainment, rarely for education....Likewise (humorously) explaining what not to do to an Arduino project will confuse and discourgage newbies.
