    I was thinking about this as I was uploading pictures to an instructable the other day. Is there a limit to the amount of pictures we can upload to our accounts to post in our instructables?

    yeah how do u make it ur avatar

    I've been able to upload pics, but I can't figure out how to make an image be the "me" image instead of the shadow-figure. Any help?

    Why isn't it working?

    I hae fixed the problem. i had the video on private viewing only... silly me

    well, how do we get to see it then?

    Video is private, we can't view it

    how do you take te vid of private veiwing

    Mine keeps loading 4 hours...

    Well, do you think you could tell me why in some posts when I got to reply or comment, it won't post, it just gives me a java error or something at the top in the little green box that comes up
