AboutFact is a place for encyclopedic articles about practical things. It's built with a key principle in mind: leave the world a better place than you found it.
Do you ever search Google for 15 minutes, or an hour, trying to find the solution to a problem and have to wade through dozens of useless pages for the answer? You find forums where people have tried different things and most of them don't work. You find tons of posts that say "Me too! I have this problem" that only add noise to the discussion.
When you finally find the solution, consider giving back to the world by cataloging it here in a short, but informative and clearly written article. We'll do the work of making the article search engine friendly so it can help others with the same problem in the future.
Like Wikipedia, we hope to make AboutFact a resource for all that can be improved or edited by anyone. It's editable so as new solutions are discovered or old solutions no longer apply the pages can change to stay current.
