Well now having had a look at this video, I’ll add some constructive criticism?
the link for the video is found here:
Is there a reason you didnt post the actual link?
First, I wholly endorse any permanent resource that gives free access to information about electrology. I do think it important to have such things, and some years ago made my own effort at creating access to a list of resources of information. So where is it? Why has it not been utilized? Well the answer, like so much of the internet, and this is especially true of any information on hairtell, is it’s “Somewhere” in the bits and bytes that make up the database that hold the content. And unless somebody acesses it and adds to it, it’s gone if not posted to for a few days, and other threads appear. Now we could make the thread a sticky to overcome this, but, we on this site do not have the ability to edit our own posts after about a day. I’m certain there is some kind of security reason for this. However this does limit the usefulness of the information, because as things moved, get deleted or changed it means that we cannot update the information, or delete it if it’s dead and cant be found. So there is a watering down of the information over time, and eventually, the information becomes completely irrelavant, no matter how good or bad a resource it is. I think Michael would agree with me on this point.
So how do we get around this? Well the answer, lies in a couple areas. First, if we dont own copyright to the information, we cannot just copy it to our own site. And if something gets moved, or changed, and no one maintains it or periodically checks that it is all still current and accurate then we have a problem.
The answer is in indexing and content control, and maintaining any given resource. If that resource is a youtube video, then we are probably okay because it’s a resource that will probably survive, google keeps everything.
If I understand your current project correctly Michael, you are attempting to build such a resource. I think it critical that you host as much of the content as possible, yourself. This is not so much a case of “control” or copyright, as it is maintaining the resource. And it’s a huge task, for anyone to accomplish. Once the resource is established, anywhere there are current links to external resources, they have to be checked and maintained on a fairly regular basis, or the resource becomes nothing but a set of dead links.
Wherever possible, you should be seeking permission to copy and distribute any content you have not created yourself. Where this is not possible, you need to be maintaining it and checking for dead links on a regular basis. It’s not an enviable task .I dont personally think this site is the best place for such a repository of information, because it’s likely to be hard to find in month or two.
Second comment: While the information is well presented, I think there is room for improvement in your series of before and after photos. I found myself trying to figure out constantly if I was looking at a “before” or “after” photo. Perhaps some text to indicate this might help?
While I can definitely see the value in this resource, and the link to electrology, I feel what you are describing is a medical proceedure and not electrolysis. It just happens to use the same technology. I am wondering about whether this would be considered something that should be performed by a medical professional, and not on an esthetician level.In my country, I dont think the government would feel differently on this.I have personally seen laser and electrology estheticians, sued by the government and the college of surgeons, for practicing medicine without a license when they decided to try and do facelifts or botox injections from their clinic , in my own city. I’m wondering if this proceedure would be treated similarly, and I’m pretty sure the answer would be yes.
