Instructables

Make Someone Happy and Win a Patch


The ratio of views to ratings on any given Instructable are abysmal. Ratings encourage Instructable writers to write more Instuctalbes. I have 100 patches to give out to members who rate 10 Instructables, they have to be 'ibles you have not rated before now - so get back to me here and tell me you did it (I will believe you) and I'll send you a Thank You Patch (pictured below). This has the potential to make 1,000 'ible authors very happy.

I rated all 19 of your Ibles 5. If you don't have any more patches. It's okay. I would've rated most of them 5 anyway.
Ninzerbean (author)  BLUEBLOBS22 years ago
Thank you, but this is not about me, it's about rating 'ibles. I'm sorry that you thought this was about rating my ibles, I work for Instructables, that is why I have patches to give out. I hope in the future you will rate all the 'ibles you read. I will patch you anyway but I feel pretty sheepish about it.
Thanks for the patch. I never new that you worked at Instructables. Cool! :)

He is so cute!!!!!!!!!!1 I will come back after I have rated 10 people. No 11 one for good measure. I will try and find those who don't have any ratings.

Thanks!
I believe that was a spammer.....
Yes, it was. I was told on another link. Don't spammers know no one like that?
Many of them just try to get you "to their site" to sell you something, but some of them try to get you to their "infected" site.....
Ninzerbean (author)  sunshiine3 years ago
Thanks - he is from a quilt I made, you be patched my dear.
Awesome! Thanks for the patch.

Ninzerbean (author)  ostomesto3 years ago
You be patched! (a little late as I was out of town).
sunshiine3 years ago
Okay! I made a lot of people happy! I had fun making them happy! I left comments and made them happy. I subscribed to a few also! This patch looks so cute!
Batness3 years ago
I always rate stuff, and try to comment too. :D I know it'd make me feel better to get some decent ratings, so I try to do that to others.

I'll be back after I comment/rate a few new 'Ibles!
Batness Batness3 years ago
I'm back! Did probably more than 10 just to be safe, and since I like doing it anyway. :D

(On another note, I've discovered that even though my cats are apparently too finicky for my first few batches of the treats I made using your Instructable, my friend's dog LOVES LOVES LOVES them! I added some lavender to a batch and they smell slightly better too! :D)
Ninzerbean (author)  Batness3 years ago
I'm impressed with your 'ibles after I checked them out - and subscribed, there is another forum thing like this one where you subscribe to 5 people and get a patch.
Ninzerbean (author)  Batness3 years ago
Great to hear, you be patched!
Thank you! :D

You're done - thank you!
seabananers4 years ago
i just did it i hope there are some patches left
Ninzerbean (author)  seabananers4 years ago
Was that fast or what? Thank you ever so much!
Doddity4 years ago
Yay i did it. i'm going back and rating things i'v done or wish i had done
Ninzerbean (author)  Doddity4 years ago
Thank you! - you are patched, I hope rating becomes a habit. I have to go check out your 'ibles now- they look pretty cool.
Ah they're not that great. Mostly to the fact I write them instead of doing homework and i have next to no tools/materials. I want to make an instructable in the workshop at school which is pretty much my favourite place
Ninzerbean (author)  Doddity4 years ago
You should get your teacher involved here - they have great support for teachers to use 'ibles in the classroom, there have been projects done on here that a whole school class did together.
I could have written up the trebuchet we made in engineering last term but its dismantled now. Also my class only has about 5 people that actually do anything at all
just rated like 15 or more alot of them look very instering..
Great, you're patched, keep it up!
now ive rated like 20 some more lol
I got carried away & did about 20 :-) I will be sure to remember to rate many more in future after all I would like others to rate mine.
Ninzerbean (author)  Nostalgic Guy4 years ago
Thank you, you are patched!
Wasagi4 years ago
Success, although I didn't catch the "You haven't rated before now", well, there are 10 more non-unrated instructables....
Ninzerbean (author)  Wasagi4 years ago
You are patched! Thank you even more for the mis-read.
Hooray!
ChrysN4 years ago
I did!
Ninzerbean (author)  ChrysN4 years ago
Me too! You are patched and thank you!
I rated 10! For some reason when I look at 'ibles I never think about rating them, but I will try to rate more often now. AI
Ninzerbean (author)  JaredsProjects4 years ago
You are not only patched but are in for some pleasant surprises...
Thank you, I have never had an instructable featured before, and now I just got 4 within 5 minutes.  :)

I just did it. I'm going to try to rate Ibles more often. :-)
Ninzerbean (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
You are a champ, thank you!
More than 10! I'm definitely trying to be better about reading an Instructable and rating it. Baaah!
Ninzerbean (author)  AngryRedhead4 years ago
More than thanks! You are patched!

Good thread - I'm not telling how many I've rated recently.
Hiyadudez4 years ago
I've rated them. Not just 10 random ones though, most of them that have inspired me in the past, and present =)
Ninzerbean (author)  Hiyadudez4 years ago
YOU are inspiring, you're patched!
zascecs4 years ago
I usually either rate 5 stars or dont rate at all...

...Anyways, I just rated 10.
Ninzerbean (author)  zascecs4 years ago
You are now patched - thanks!

I just rated ten of them! Great idea, by the way. Where did you get so many patches?
Ninzerbean (author)  kcls4 years ago
Now, now, didn't your mom tell you never to ask a woman that kind of question?
dombeef4 years ago
I just did it
Ninzerbean (author)  dombeef4 years ago
