I was searching for new electronic circuits projects and always ended up on Instuctables, I then bookmarked the site and checked it quite often to get new ideas.

After a while I decided to join the community and and posted my first Ible only a few weeks ago and it got featured!

Two days ago I went on the forum and posted a topic and now I can't stop posting comments in the forum!!!

I found Instructables while searching for instructions on how to make something (I do not know what. I forgot). I joined Instructables because, well, I'm the sort of person who likes to make stuff and take apart stuff and Instructables offered a lot of that. I realize now what a diverse group of people the Instructables community is. And I'm (somewhat) glad I am a part of it.

I was searching for "How to" details about electric bikes & vehicles, wind power generators, solar panels etc. and came across instructables. Initially I paid for a pro membership to download few instructables of above subjects, then thought of writing my own instructable. My first instructable " Mini Bio-gas plant using food waste, decomposable organic material and kitchen waste" won the First prize in Make it stick contest and got me a one year free pro membership. From then on no turning back...

... and now you are ours!


you are right kiteman...

Wait, what, deja vu?

I learned about Instructables when skimming through the craft section of the library and I found one of the books that they publish. I checked out the site and, yeah...

And now you are ours..... bwahahahahaha!

I joined because I wanted to see secondary images and image notes back in the day. That Red Ring of Death project (and a million Lifehacker links) led me here, and the sorta-kinda-someday notion that I'd start hardware hacking kept me here. Despite being more of a lurker than a poster, I lucked out like crazy and landed an internship. From there, I fell in love with this community of cheapskates, artists, tinkerers, builders, survivalists, students, and nerds.

If you think the Kool-Aid is delicious as a site member, it's positively ambrosial at HQ. The "why not? let's build it!" mentality is infectious, and that culture permeates just about everything that happens from individual projects to how we choose what features to develop. (It's probably annoying when we break the site, though. That's an unfortunate side effect of a team of tinkerers running a website together.)
