What do we classify as not repair related? PT. 2
Alright, I need to bring What do we classify as "not repair related"? up again. I’ve been told that must of my content on this site is not repair related. Jeff Suovanen (@jeffsu) sent me a kind email the other day about my guides .
I agree that these following guides aren’t related to repair & should be deleted
This guide is duplicate and can be archived/deleted
However these guides (reasons provided) are related to repair & resurrecting a broken device in some ways
This one is a no brainer, it’s an iMac stand replacement guide
This one pertains to repair because it gives you information on if your iPhone’s battery needs replacing or not
This one also pertains to repair in the same way above but for Macs. This is my “prized possession” as it is the guide I most frequently reference.
This one pertains to repair in the same way above but for iPads
This guide is questionable. It’s not about repair but rather a technique to keep aging Macs out of the trash. It’s my attempt at saving the earth & spreading DosDude1’s incredible patch tool
These following SMC & PRAM/NVRAM guides pertain to repair because they can resurrect a dead Mac in some cases
My other question is that if iFixit is a strictly repair related site why do we have this Software category? Isn’t that not repair related? Why are my guides not repair related & somehow that category is classified as repair related? I'm a bit baffled on that one.
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
