I am 68, retired USAF aircraft avionics, cryptographic systems tech. with a Technician Class HAM Radio license.

I wrote/re-wrote the Standards Installation Manuals (29 volumes) while establishing/teaching the one week school in the Air Force for all installers of Communications Centers, and Bases in America and Europe. Was assigned there for 3.5 years. Also taught micromodular repair, soldering practices, and worked on

the Idlewild RAPCON project, along with the first laser shots to return from the moon.

I am retired, but, rebuild several computers each week for the Friends of the Library,

Seminole county, and other charities, schools, businesses, and families.

I repair LCD monitors and computers down to the component level, TIG weld, and repair motor vehicles, bicycles, as needed. Have a Raspberry Pi B model, and am building a BIT X20A Ham Radio from scratch.

So, I have a few current "brands in the fire", and have a recommendation, to help the newbies...

1. How about a "Standards Page", a "Safe Practices Page", or links to some?

2. A writer guide for projects, so that a 'formula' is followed, as in an outline of tasks.

Thanks for a very informative, exciting, experience! Just watching technology blossom and evolve is a thrill!

If you want to apply for something, there are email addresses in the topic text.

My opinions:

A safety page has been discussed before, but the sheer range and variety of tools, tasks and processes described in the projects here make such a task fall somewhere between "infeasibly unwieldy" and "insanely complex". That's why safe working has been made the responsibility of the end-users (which also stops new authors being put off by the threat of legal action).

Regarding your second point, we do have a set of quality guidelines - http://www.instructables.com/community/Featuring-... - but to recommend a specific formula would make previously creative and distinctive projects start to look rather repetitive and, well, formulaic.
