I think that Hairtell site has very good intention. This intention is primarily to help the users to find solution for their problems with unwanted hair.
Unfortunately, it is not well structured and lack of efficiency, noted also from Michael and Seana.
If I want to find something specific I will need to take "vacation’ and even if I found what I am looking for, the answer maybe not correct, not fully explained or buried in a long post. Also, there are a lot of posts which have nothing to do with the electrolysis and only make the mess bigger.
In my opinion we have to make one section which we can named "Electrolysis book’ or "The electrolysis Bible’. It has to be written as a book which will contain all the aspects of the electrology and concentrates all the knowledge in one place. In this case each user can read this book first and try to find the answer of his/her question. 99% they will find the answer of their questions. The users can make a post only if their problems are very specific and are not covered in the book.
The book should have many sections. Each section will have subsections and so on. Could be organize as drop-down menus and the user can chose the article which can answer the question she/he has.
Each article should meet some requirements to be published in the book:
- The purpose of the article.
- The most important conclusion/s, truth or false etc. (Simple, clear sentences)
- Brief explanation of the subject of the article
- References including books, articles or other verified sources (for users which need more detail explanation)
- Pictures and other visual aids.
Each article should be approved for publishing from Hairtell authorized electrologists.
If somebody wants to publish something it should meet the requirements and should be approved from "The board of directors’, then edit and publish by authorised person/s.
The goal is to be published only true and verified information.
I am writing exclusively for Hairtell owners and electrolysis professionals which can make this happened.
I know that to make this "book’ will take time and effort but it is worth it. It will help users and electrologist with and without experience.
Anyway, this is only one suggestion to improve the site and the communication between electrologists and the users seeking answers of their questions.
In this format I do not see the point to waste my time.
