    I was just looking at WikiHow and how they decide which posts should be deleted while giving everyone a heads-up about why. Maybe we could use the same system, but have something like a set number (neg. rating) that once it is reached the post is then deleted. Also perhaps have a message appear automatically when the halfway mark (or quarter) of neg. ratings has been breached, saying that the post will soon be deleted unless the rating goes back up. Just a thought...
    Here's one ex: http://www.wikihow.com/Be-Like-Me-;)

    Except instead of giving the post 2 weeks, have it set to once the number has been reached to be deleted. Also it would give the "poster" some time to change what needs to be changed to keep their instructable up and running.

    i feel all you did is rip off some scratching techniques. From "a real DJ!". and well you didnt put any input on anything its missing alot on how a turntable is used. not to mention its just scratch not like the how to mix the scratch, how to set up your records, not even anything on common time. B- on compiling data, D- for the fact that its missing first hand info.

    How a turntable is used: Buy vinyl, put vinyl on turntable, hookup to phono preamp, put needle on vinyl, turn up volume.

    It's a joke. That's Sasha Baron Cohen from his pre-Ali G days. And it's not a proper instructable. Please delete.

    Ok... I honestly can't tell if this is legitimate. It looks like all of the steps have been pirated off of some "how to" video... If so, this really has no place on the site. Are we going to post old episodes of "This old House" next?

    That's not how to use a turntable... That's how to abuse a turntable. To use turntable: Place record on turrntable. Gently deposit needle 1/8" in from edge of turntable. Enjoy music. Gently replace needle on holder. remove record. Repeat. Please, think about your post titles before you actually post. Some people still use turntables for their intended use.

    Unless this is intended to be part of a series, how about changing the name to Turntable Scratch Techniques or something? You are really only covering that one thing, not how to mix or beat match or whatever else people do with turntables. You don't have to cover everything, as long as you don't SAY you're going to cover everything, which "How to use a turntable" sort of implies.
