Who wants a 3 month Pro membership

Over that year or so I have won five 3-month PRO memberships, and would like to start giving them away.  I would like to start by giving 2 of them away in a contest of sorts.  I have seen others do this and this seems like an awesome way to do it.  So here goes
  1. Submit a new instructable, will say no older then... December 31st 2010
  2. Try to make it as awesome as possible, cause i like to use the word awesome around here alot!
  3. I will be focusing on creativity and the ease of construction for people new to this site.
  4. You have to make it yourself, jobbing out to have something cut-out IE, Ponoko is great and all, and if I was closer would probably do it myself, but the average maker is stuck using rinky-dink power tools.  Making something with those rinky-dink power tools those is true awesomeness!
  5. On second thought, I have rented power tools before, step 4 is more less the same as this so what ever means you have is good!
  6. Dead-line of February 20, 2011 - I'll try to judge it as quick as possible
That's about it I guess, make sure to message me, post a link, shoot a flaming arrow or something that gets my attention to your instructable and tell me why you deserve it.
Random begging, flattery and bribing is also good

Others that have done this before, please comment as to any pointers that may make this smoother!  Thanks!

So you said bribing is acceptable if you give me a pro membership I will use it to send you a patch. Oh by the way hosting this contest makes you one of the all time AWESOMEST instructables members ever so awesome that I am subscribing.

I have an instructable that meets the requirements but I don think it deserves it as all it is, is a poorly written instructable on how to play a game on a YouTube video. If I had a pro membership I would probably post a lot of comments in color go on the pro member only forums and give out patches to those who deserve. I don't really care about having a pro membership but I wouldn't mind a patch with tux the Linux penguin on it

Hi there iminthebathroom (love the screen name, BTW), you're right, I would also have expected there to be more people jumping on the bandwagon as well.

I hope that my first ible (one and only) so far would be viable for your contest, and that you like it too! :)

I would definitely like to take advantage of the Pro features in creating future Instructables (I have a few in the works that I just need to get put together).

Without further ado, I give you:



Thanks for the opportunity!

This is really cool of you! I'm making a freakin awesome instructable but it won't be done in the next week (hopefully). How many do you have left?
Perhaps you'd consider my Scout miniature paper airplane (pictured)? I am interested in this because I'd like to offer a Pro membership as a prize in my Paper Airplane Contest (http://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-2-Open/) to spice it up and make it more appealing than just patches.

When is your contest due?
It is scheduled to begin today and end February 14, 2011.
OK, I'm going to give you one of my Pro memberships right now, and just nick on off the contest give away. That way you can advertise your membership to give away in your prize list! Hope this works for you. I'll email your the gift code in just a second!

Please consider my application for your very generous gift. I published my VERY FIRST ible on 14th. Dec. 2010 because I wanted it up for Christmas. [sparkley christmas star] by Craftyv. Thanks for your consideration. There's actually only  3 viewers so far, so good luck with it all. Craftv.

You got it, love bending the rules! New enough for me, especially if its there first!
I'm absolutely thrilled by your quick response , you've made my New Year. Your comments were very welcome , as you know , feedback (of any kind) is very helpful especially to a new ibler. I am gob-smacked at the number and variety that you have published. Thanks so much . Happy new year.
I noticed :) I was planning on working the flattery angle !

no kidding, perhaps I'll extend the deadline until more people notice. I would have jumped at the chance when I first got on this site!
