Policy on guides with only 1 step, a company’s repair video?
So the published guide on iFixit for a particular repair I was looking for has only one “step”: an embedded video of a company’s repair tutorial.
Technically, I guess it’s better than no guide. But I can’t parse how community standards regards such a practice.
The contributor’s profile page doesn’t overtly state that his business created the video, only that he runs his own small business. That said, he has also done the same for two other guides.
Looking for a clear response here, because a search of pages on community standards as well as a search through Meta answers (keywords “guide” and “video”) didn’t turn up any overt answers about the particular issue. And while I’ll admit that perhaps it’s just my own personal glitch, I came to iFixit because I prefer the written guide style to videos. So this experience was definitely unlike all the other experiences I’ve had using other in-depth contributed guides here. It’s left me wondering if I should expect more of the same in the future.
Is this a good question?
