Okay,
To make an account on Instructables, simply look at the upper Right corner where it says "Sign up Now!" click it and fill out the questions, hit SIGN UP! and you have your very own account!

Step 2: Updating your Personal Information

Okay,
now that you have your very own account on Instructables, Lets adjust your personal settings!

Okay, when you click on your name at the top Right corner, you should be loaded to your page, look around, there should be a "Update Persona(l)" click it, and do what ever you want!

Step 3: Making your first Instructable

Okay,
For this I'm just going to redirect you to a different page, this is another Instructable which shows you how to make an Instructable

- If you think someone may have made the same Instructable as you, search for it to avoid reposts where you don't add anything
- Play with that little flower icon on your digital camera, see what it does
- Abusive or negative comments, while they are unlikely to get you banned (unless they are really negative), are quite likely to make people less inclined to take you seriously and value your input less.

Step 4: Posting Comments

Okay,
when ever you want to post a comment, simply go to the bottom of the page, and click "Add Comment" then type what ever you want, you can also attach a link, video, you can do a spell check, make you font Bold Or Italic

Step 5: Adding to the Forum

Are you using Firefox with an iFox theme? Well anyway, was this supposed to tell as around Instructables or just basically tell us how to start?

add information about how you have to click reply to reply to someone...people get lucky when they just add comment and i happen to see it.
Nice job Shifrin, this was a great idea.

Eh, Thanks... uh, is it okay if I borrow one of your pictures, the one that says I want your Instructable... ; )
Yeah, here you go. Post this picture of the Instructables Robot, yours has something on the side of it. Also, add in this Instructables logo if you want.

It looks like the Instructables words are connected to Instructables Robot, but they're separate pictures.

What Censor? : ) Did you like the Instructable? Do you think it may help out the newer people on the Instructables community?
Yeah, not too hard to see it...apparently he lives in IL, I'll let you figure out his city.
;)

Anyways, nice instructable!

Who needs the i on the upper left corner? Right click -> view image works just as well :)

I'd be tempted to add
- If you think someone may have made the same Instructable as you, search for it to avoid reposts where you don't add anything
- Play with that little flower icon on your digital camera, see what it does
- Abusive or negative comments, while they are unlikely to get you banned (unless they are really negative), are quite likely to make people less inclined to take you seriously and value your input less.

(These are not aimed at you, Shifrin, they are things I wish more people did)
Shifrin (author)  PKM7 years ago
Thanks, I will do that later tonight!
Shifrin (author)  Shifrin7 years ago
Thanks! check out the bottom of the intro and step 3!
Try opening the picture in any image editing program and color over the censored part..if you press the "i" on the upper left hand corner, you can download the photo and see.

Not to shabby! Might I also make th recommendation that users use Firefox for both ease of use and a handy spell check. Good grammar is also a plus, no1 wnts 2 listen nd reed toos n00b spk lolz
