This is probably my most "meta" Instructable to date. It's not anything particularly useful, just an idea that occurred to me while I was browsing around and musing on the stuff people do to get you to, for instance, click on their videos on YouTube. Thankfully Instructables doesn't have much of this sort of filthy trickery, but this is a quick peek into what the site might look like if we did.
Literally minutes after I finished writing this Instructable, probably no more than half an hour after I published "How to make cereal", I received a PM from a member of staff, telling me that it had been unpublished due to my abuse of the featured stripe and would only be republished once I had removed it.
If you do this for real your Instructable WILL be unpublished and you will probably not make any friends among the moderators. I did this so you don't have to. Please do not attempt to recreate this stunt.
Step 1: Write an Instructable
Exactly what it says on the tin. I wrote "How to make cereal" in a few minutes to demonstrate this on. No great shakes, but that's the point- this doesn't depend on you having any actual content besides a couple of images.
