The answer is (almost) always YES! - AKA Kiteman's Law Answered

There is a fairly regular kind of thread that appears here.

It starts should I make an Instructable about insert topic here?

You know what? The answer is yes. Even if nobody else on the site is even vaguely interested in insert topic here, it is probable that somebody with access to the internet, somewhere in the world, will eventually develop an interest in insert topic here and resort to Google. Since this site is googlable (is that a word?), they can end up here, grateful to you and potentially a new and useful member of the site.

So, unless it breaks the guidelines for what is suitable here (basically, Please remember that this is a family site), and you're not just re-inventing the wheel, then the answer to should I? is always yes.

It's "too" ;-)

Anyhoo, if you're not sure about something, ask somebody. PM somebody you trust, or (if it's a spelling / grammar issue, and you're still at school) ask your English teacher - they'll probably be impressed, since "explanation" (telling somebody how to do something) is one of the genres of writing they are supposed to teach you (in the UK, at least).

Indeed.

(Actually, as the author of the topic, I got an email about more comments, then just couldn't resist shooting at such a tempting target.)

Huh? Oh! Sorry, I was correcting your English usage, not being comradely. I went through the good old-fashioned state school system.

Ah, O.K. well I'd like to say lucky you. The reason being because it is very lonely while being home-schooled,especially since I live in the country and have no other kids to "Hang out" with.

Well, be glad you don't have to take the dreaded state test! Everything is based off this test, so you only learn how to pass the test. nothin else. very...b..b..bor......boring................

Haha, some badge of merit!

Actually, it wasn't a correction, it was an addition.

About time someone speaks regarding the constant "Should I...?" question. I sometimes get annoyed by it but, I have to remember that we are dealing with young ones.
