Guide to making edits
Making edits is easy. If you want guidelines, these three define what a great post on Hingmy is all about.
- Provide facts, not opinions
- Be truthful
- Don't plagiarize
When you are contributing to Hingmy take some time to understand what page you are editing. Match your edit to the type of content you, as a reader, would expect.
For example, a product guide should contain information. Personal opinions belong in forum thread.
It's OK to try; and actually hard to get wrong
Go ahead, make an edit. You won't get banned, if you make a mistake. Chances are you won't get things wrong anyways.
Provide facts, not opinions.
Don't do: I think tablesaw 123X's table is too small!
Instead do: Tablesaw 123X's table is smaller than that of most tablesaws.
Don't write content that will be out of data soon
Don't do: The 123X tablsaw has the largest blade size in the market.
Instead do: Blade size is an improtant attribute of tablesaws.
Use good spelling and grammar
We all want our pages to be as readable as possible. Slang and l33t speak don't help with that.
Don't plagiarize; create instead!
How would you feel if someone took your work and reposted it on their website? Respect the author and create your own content.
Don't preach, inform instead
Don't do: We all know how important it is for a tablesaw to be heavy.
Instead do: In general, heavy machines dampen motor vibrations better than lighter machines.
Properties, more than anything on this site, are about accuracy. Good data helps everyone.
We all want accurate data. Get your data from the manufacturer or measure the machine yourself.
