I was just googling myself and I found an entire list of my knex gun instructables translated by half a dozen different people into another language, lol. There are translations for 2 of your instructables on the site too. I don't know anything else about the site cause I can't read it, lol.

This is the site:

Woah that is freaky as hell man... Plus there's no pictures or reference or link to the originals or anything... Wow that's really really weird lol... I just spent about half an hour browsing the site trying to figure it out, I think it's in Portuguese, but I don't know for sure. Thanks for telling me about this, man. My mind is blown that is so very very weird...
I know, I don't understand how the site works or what it's for. I actually found several other sites with knex gun instructable translations on them after I made the above comment. Apparently these translation sites are a common thing on the internet.

So weird...
How would you suggest that I make this more innovative?
Idk, I don't think there's too much to innovate with slingshots. It's as complicated as it gets. You pull a band and release it. I did try doing something innovative with slingshots, my closed barreled auto reload one, but that failed, so I claim it's a dead topic, definitely in a converse layout (Kinetic's and Innovanna's gun, don't remember it's name, was pretty innovative, but I think that's about it). That's why I never liked slingshots too much, there's nothing much to do with them, nothing much to improve.
Hey bro,
I don't know if I ever thanked you for the patch, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to thank you now. I hope to see you K'NEXing again soon.

Here is the link to that ebook I wrote:
That's cool. Have you sold any yet?
Ya know what, I don't know. My mom encouraged me to kinda take on the idea of website making and things like that (selling eBooks, etc.) but the idea kinda fell through.
Oh okay. I've often wondered what I could do to make money from my knex gun world popularity. Partly because I'm at a time in my life when I need the money.
Yeah, true dat.

Hey Sharir. I've got a Facebook page for my art that's doing well now. I'm actually getting a little bit of business through it making some commissioned paintings.

Like it if you have an account and you'll stay updated on my artwork automatically.

That's really cool! Wow way to pursue your dream :) Good for you man! I don't use Facebook very much right now, I don't find any good reason to, but I like it in spirit, more important than a stupid FB like if you ask me... Keep on doing what you love man, you're really good at it!
