    I just found this website last week, and I signed up for an account a few days ago. I'm just curious to know why you like written instructions when I included the instructions on the video. When I uploaded this video to the VIDEO section it didn't give me an option to post detailed instructions . That option (to post detailed instructions) is only available on the INSTRUCTABLE section.

    This might be hard to believe, but some of us out here still have dial-up, so the videos are nearly impossible to watch. Not that you should tailor your info to the minority, and this IS in the video section... :)

    Personally, as long as the video clearly shows the steps of a process, it's fine to me. I think you did a good job here. Though I do generally prefer a written instructable, but that is simply my learning style. A lot of our early video posters were posting videos of something they did without any clear explanation as to how they came to the results. Perhaps that is why some of our members are biased against them. You're doing fine, keep up the good work.

    Some people prefer the Instructable format as that's what they are used to. I just think everyone is getting used to our new additions of video and slideshows.

    It's not just because I'm used to that format. It's just better all around. Don't get me wrong, I love having a video to clarify things. But I like to be able to read over the instructions too. Having both formats is much more helpful than just one.

    I fully agree with you, we're just trying to make it a little easier for people to participate. Some of the video posters have actually started adding full Instructables, because people are interested.

    besides in most schools, hostels, colleges, and some offices and home networks, videos are banned. Sad I know but I can't help it, I can only watch the video at home and I am rarely here.

    WOWIE U AH LIKE 13 U LUCKY WEDER IN LA IS GOOOD HERE IS FREEZY U GO OUTSIDE MAKE A FREIND NOT STAY BOTTLE UP IN HOME U HAVE NO LIFE

    We have a 'be nice' policy here. Telling someone they have no life because they take the time to demonstrate a physics trick does not fall within that category. Also, posting in all caps is not considered very polite either.

    I didn't know what else to call it. I thought about calling the video "Balloon Balancing", but I thought it didn't sound good. "Balloon Surfing" just sounds cooler :)

    balloon balancing, I like the alliteration.
