HowTo's will eventually have to be updated. Before editing a HowTo double check that your update increases the accuracy or clarity.
- Make sure that the information you enter is accurate, and not a technique that happened to work in you circumstance.
- Do not remove any steps that are valid but failed in your circumstance. Explain in a sub step of the failed step your problem and the solution you found to this failure.
- If the HowTo is accurate but for an antiquated topic. Recreate the old HowTo with a more accurate, descriptive title. Create a new HowTo with a descriptive title. Link the older HowTo from the new HowTo.
- If the existing Howto has a similar name, but unrelated subject, move the page to a more descriptive name, create the new page under a more descriptive name, and create a disambigious page linking both.
