Makey Editorial Standards

Our Mission

At Makey, our aim is to unify the world’s collective knowledge on how to tackle projects both big and small around the home.

We seek to produce original content that helps our audience to draw inspiration from our tutorials, while Makey-ing (see what I did there?) informed building and buying decisions. We also intend for you to have fun reading while you learn – instructions don’t have to be dry and impersonal to be helpful!

We believe in creating communities where makers of all experience levels, backgrounds and points of view can gather and help each other solve everyday problems. We embody the collaborative spirit that exists between friends, working together to brighten up your home.

Why You Should Trust Us

Everything you read on Makey has been thoroughly researched by a team of enthusiastic writers and editors, and vetted, written and hand-crafted by our panel of expert guides who have years of experience and training in their fields. Together, we’ll be able to turn your seemingly complicated how-to into a simple can-do!

We provide you with the tools to feel confident and comfortable with whatever project you plan to take on, and we lean on our expert guides to ensure that any product we suggest is the best one for the job. We wholeheartedly believe in the products we recommend, and we may receive commissions from your purchases, but we never receive any compensation or consideration for the content of our recommendations.

Updates & Contributions

We understand that styles, technology, building practices — and of course, pop-culture references — continually evolve, which is why we are committed to regularly updating our content to reflect contemporary trends, materials, and techniques.

Additionally, we will continue to explore all of the unique ways the world navigates projects, seeking new sources of inspiration, and determining how we can make these projects more accessible to our community. The one thing that's certain is change, and as the needs of you and your household grow, we aim to mature and adapt our content with you.

Corrections

At Makey, we strive to be best-in-class but aren’t afraid to share our mistakes either. We see the value in happy accidents and taking the time to learn from them — it reminds us that we’re all in this together.

If you notice anything on our site that fails to live up to the standards Makey aims to uphold, we want to hear from you. Unfortunately, our tin-can phone is down, and our carrier pigeon services seem to have flown away, so please send us an email at CONTACT@MAKEY.COM if you have any issues, and we’ll make every effort towards rectifying the situation.

Inclusivity & Respect

One thing we take very seriously is ensuring everyone feels welcome, supported, and equally represented in all of our content. We are building an inclusive space that is welcoming of all. Makey will never be a platform for hateful, disrespectful, demeaning, or discriminatory messages. This type of communication has no place in our diverse community.

Plagiarism

We pride ourselves on being passionate and original, and you can expect all of our content to reflect our unique identity. Plagiarism is not tolerated, and will be taken very seriously if instances occur. We provide accurate links to any outside sources, and make every effort to maintain that transparency in all of our past, present and future work.
