An Idea for the iFixit Webpage

Hi Everyone,

I would like to ask if there is an option to randomly bring a repair guide. Something like wikipedia. I think it would be interesting to call an article randomly rather than browsing and searching. If someone wants to kill some time on the website or trying to learn or discover new stuff I think a random article would be helpful.

What do you think ?

this part is confusing:

interesting to call an article randomly rather than browsing and searching

I think for a time-killer the perks present is enough, like the

  • featured guides
  • tip of the day
  • 5 or 4 blog posts
  • links in the footer other tid bits
  • and the iFixit and iFixit Meta forums.

But,

something like this will be actually a good idea:

  • it contains on the header where Fix your stuff,Community, store, USD stuff is but on the right.
  • It is a icon: compass shape (like in google earth)

Hi süheyl önal,

I think that’s a really clever idea! A random guide button could be a wonderful and educational time filler.

I’ll pass that along!

Hi Amber,

Thank you for your nice comments. To be honest I came up with the idea when I manually browse rather than search and saw the “skills” section. I did not know that ifixit had such section. I mostly saw your posts when I browse from other tech blogs or if I need a guide to fix something.

Also I’m a designer and all these stuff is interesting for me, yet, I’m pretty sure there are products which I never heard of but I would like to learn about them, how they work or how it’s build. It is difficult to browse and go through all the guides if you don’t know what you are looking for. To discover such items I think it would be nice to have that button :) also it would let young boys and girls to get more curious about how things work :)

Hope it gets a positive outcome :)

Thank you!
