And all you need is:

[   ]A working computer with an internet connection (you are using one right now.)

Step 1: Getting Started

My opinion is that you should look at the contests list and plan your instructables for a day and spend 1-2 days making the instructable, editing and building. The better quality the instructable the more views. Like for example no blurry pictures or boring pictures, make them light and happy and fun. Put a few jokes in your instructables and have fun doing it. Because if you don't have fun while making an instructable then why even bother. Anyway, great instructable I guess I would say.

Hey can you do a tutorial on how to CLOSE an Instructables account? I want to change my screen name and I can't find any way to change it OR close the account so I can make a new one..... Thanks

This comment is not attacking you but to provide a bit of positive feedback.

1) the subject of your instructable "how to create an instructable account"
its in multiple steps>in order to view all the steps you need to be a member or be logged in.
2) your creating an instructables on instructables, thats like googling Google.  You end up tearing the fabric of the space time continuum!

Thanks I got a good laugh out of that. I was also unaware that you cannot view all of the steps as a guest. Many thanks.

Not really worth doing. People do this every day just to ask a question...


I guess your right. I was just eager to make an instructable...

It's one of those things where it doesn't matter how good it is, people don't see it before they've already done it and asked "how to make virus for hacking the files?" or similar...
Any way, congratulations on your firsts, welcome to Instructables!


Many thanks for your help L, I will work hard to complete one that is more useful.

So there really isn't in point in keeping this is there... : /

It's inoffensive, your English is good, you put pictures in each step, but it's not going to help a lot of people.
What are you interested in? - I bet you've got something good somewhere, even simple-jobs well done can be worth doing. I cleaned & buffed some DVDs, but I never bothered to publish... Problem is I've only got the "after" not the "before".
