Dear Mint, please stop breaking things on the last day of the month as it screws up trends. If you want to lose properties for a day, do it in the middle of the month.

This isn't the first month it's happened.  This month, properties are blank and, unless it's fixed before EOD, my net worth will be completely wrong for this month with no way to fix it.  There have been at least three months where one of my mortgages or a loan was inexplicably double-counted JUST for the last day of the month, also screwing up trends.  It would only be mildly annoying if it happened in the middle of the month because trends wouldn't be impacted but, due to the way numbers get locked in on the first and last day of the month for trends, those days are absolutely critical for stuff to NOT BREAK.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
