Guide categories don't seem to fit what is being described
Just wanting to start a conversation about the rationale behind the nomenclature for the guide types.
There are a number of categories for guides and IMO they aren't particularly good at describing what is really being shown.
Most guides are catagorised as INSTALLATION whereas they are usually showing how to disassemble something to remove a particular part for repair or replacement.
Disassembly - we may do this for fun but most folks are here to get something out to replace/repair it so perhaps REMOVAL is a better description. For me it it seems more logical for most guides to be catagorised for example REMOVAL of iMac Intel 24" EMC XXXX HDD.
Installation - reserved for where additional/upgraded parts are being ADDED to the item in question. Adding a second HDD, more RAM, new VGA or customisation like adding LED or CCFL Bling to your PC case.
Technique - tip/trick/short cut, how to do a particular activity like soldering, measuring voltages etc. - This seems to work well.
Maintenance - self explanatory
Repair - for things beyond board/module/motor removal - component level repairs, PCB repairs, SMD rework, things that are beyond the usual FRU rationale.
Teardown - self explanatory
It would also be great if when you select the type of guide you get the helpful prompter like you get when you select the difficulty of the procedure
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
