If anyone would make the site like it used to be. It was so much easier to find instructables that you are actually looking for.

Do you mean the search function?

like how now it finds individual steps and such...?

If so, you can click "graphical search" after entering a query.

Really? I haven't been on for too long! Sorry you feel that way.

The killerjackelope family
You (happyjo)
Anyone that I am subscribed to

Yes! I love all of the happiness!
Hey, where is the brown hat picture?
Haha, what was all the fuss about?

A hat made from (fake) poo, with a nice ribbon.

My favourite thing is the community.

My least favourite thing today is that photo.

(That is now a much better picture.)
My profile pic?
I believe the World, as it exists, as found, is imperfect.  As a result there are many opportunities to improve some part of it.  And that's basically what people do here, they offer suggestions on how to improve something.  That's what an instructable is. It's somebody ripping the head off of Malibu Barbie(tm), and sticking a USB drive where her insides used to be, then saying, "Well look at that!  It's better now!"

My point is that no matter how strange, or twisted, I think everyone here is working towards the same goal, namely:  Improvement.  Making the world better in some way, shape, or form.

Anyone who takes the time to author a sincere instructable is in fact following the famous advice of Mahatma Ghandi, by being the change he, she, or it, wants to see in the world.

Very nice job! And I agree! Instructables IS about making things better!
