Instructables

Is the addition of I'bles to the MAKE forum moderated?

I don't see a way to find this out for myself, so I'm asking the group (esp. the group admins). Is anyone allowed to add their own or other's I'bles to the "MAKE Magazine" Instructables Group? If not, what is the appropriate channel for suggestions or self-promotion?

Not positive..

Hmmm....I'm not so sure. One of my I'bles (the baby mobile's mute switch) is listed in the "Recently Added" section, but I can't find a reference to it in the MAKE blog for October 2008.

I also cross-checked the "referrers" info. My I'ble doesn't have "blog.makezine.com" listed, but another one which I know was featured there (there was even an article about in last month's MAKE) does have the "blog.makezine.com" referrer entry.

So I don't know how mine got included, but I sure appreciate it.
If you join the group, you can add your projects to the group. They then show up on the "recently added" list. It's up to the Make webmasters to choose the featured projects, though.

Okay, so the Group is unmoderated; thanks! I've just confirmed that I can add my own I'bles. I've also noticed an interesting "bug" (I'm going to post about it separately): the "recently added" is sorted and cut based on the publication date, not on the date somebody actually did the addition.
