TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I do this for custom contracts, but for out of the box, generic
products this approach can be ineffective. In these cases, you really
should be evaluating the feedback to determine why you're getting
these suggestions and do what makes sense for the majority of your
audience. This sometimes means ignoring customer requests.
