Here are my thoughts. There are a lot of them!Positives:-I am a BIG fan of the new activity feed. It's interesting to be able to look back and see when events such as contest wins happened and who is favoriting projects. It's interesting to be able to see which older 'ibles are receiving attention. It makes me want to pay more attention to them myself!-I've always felt Instructables was a little behind on making their site 'mobile friendly', and from a mobile first perspective this new layout works much better!-Setting promoted items is such a great idea. I know the feature doesn't quite work yet, but I'm assuming it's being worked on. This feature makes the page feel more personal and will really let authors display work they are proud of!-I like that it now says what place was won in ...see more »Here are my thoughts.

This feature makes the page feel more personal and will really let authors display work they are proud of!-I like that it now says what place was won in contests and not just that you won!Negatives:-There is too much 'essential' information that is located below the fold of the page. Personally, I have an external portfolio website listed in my "about" section and I drive a fair amount of traffic to it through Instructables. I wish the placement of this information was somewhere visible when the page initially loads so someone doesn't miss reading it before they click on one of my projects.-I wish I could still see my favorites from this page. I often use my favorites to save Instructables that use resources that I am considering using for my own projects(so, I kinda use it like Pinterest in a way!). It's more steps then necessary to have to go to your 'You Page', click on the correct tab, etc.. This change might drive me to actually use Pinterest! I also wish I could see projects that others have favorited. -I miss being able to see how my followers I, along with others have. Also, you can't sort by 'most views' when viewing all Instructables. When I subscribe to someone new, the decision is usually made after seeing one project I like, noticing they have a good amount of followers, clicking on their page and sorting their Instructables by views which brings of up projects I've usually seen and liked in the past.-The new trophy icons for contest wins seems really impersonal. Getting new patches for my profile has always been an accomplishment. Getting the 'same old' trophy icon is not. It's also hard when looking at the profiles of others to quickly asses what type of contests they enter without the images like the patches have. Also, a lot of the the wrong places were listed(Ex. One of my patches said I won 2nd Place when I was actually a Runner Up).

Fantastic! Having recently found the courage to learn more about those scary words myself, I am so happy that this Instructable was able to help you! Since I always love seeing when people leave "Made It!" comments on my projects, I will be sending a code for a 3 month Instructables Pro Membership your way! Check your Inbox for the code. And you were correct about the quotation marks! I must have accidentally deleted them when removing my personal URL from the code. I have updated the writeup accordingly. Thanks for catching my mistake!
I used 100ohm resistors. Honestly, they were a little much for this project. The LEDs were a little dimmer than I had hoped, but I was trying to be conservative with spending money on supplies and had some lying around from another project.I recommend looking at the specs for the LEDs you have and visit http://ledcalc.com/ to calculate exactly what you need. When I used the calculator, it told me that 22ohm was more appropriate for the LEDs I had purchased, but it might be slightly different for you unless you purchased the same LEDs as me.
I guess when I fixed the links in my supply list, the link to the battery got lost! Anyway, that is now corrected, but I will include the link here as well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FVSG19E?ie=UT...You don't have to use this exact battery, but do look for a Polymer Lithium Ion that is 3.7V. Adafruit sells a lot of great batteries. Generally, the larger mAh and size of the battery, the longer the battery life. Just make sure you don't buy a battery that is too big to fit inside the remembrall!
Hi, thanks for your comment! Unfortunately I am not able to make these to sell at the moment. I am always happy to answer questions to troubleshoot problems and give advice for those trying to make this project though!
Thank you StefanS96!
Are you including the parentheses with the Access Token? If so don't. For example, if your access token is 1234567890, the URL should look like this:https://todoist.com/API/v7/sync/?token=12345667890&sync_token=%27*%27&resource_types=[%22items%22]NOT this:https://todoist.com/API/v7/sync/?token=(1234567890)&sync_token=%27*%27&resource_types=[%22items%22]If that doesn't solve your problem and you feel comfortable doing so, feel free to send me a personal message with your Access Token and I would be happy to try and get it to work for you.
Thank you so much!!! If you end up making the Remembrall, I would love to see pictures! And if you're looking to make a wand that works, I made a Magic Wand TV Remote about a year and a half ago. With some work, it could definitely be programed to do more than control just a television! Here is a link to the Instructable for that project: http://www.instructables.com/id/Magic-Wand-TV-Remo...
Hi! One of my best friends recently started dialysis for kidney failure. I was searching the web for something nice that I could get for her or make, when I came across your 'ible! Thank you so much for the useful information! I didn't expect my google search for 'kidney dialysis care package' to bring me back to my favorite internet community Instructables, but I'm thrilled that it did!

Hi! Again I am very sorry for the slow reply! The Manage App button can be found through this link: https://developer.todoist.com/And here is a screen shot of it circled!
Thank you! Congratulations to you too! I was extremely impressed when I found out that your 'Time Turner Necklace' was made entirely out of paper!!!!
Haha, I remember seeing your "Text Message in a Bottle" project back when it was posted and thinking it was really clever!!!
Awesome!!! I'd love to see your Weasley Clock when you are done! It's always really nice to hear when people use resources that I mention in my Instructables for their own projects. It makes me want to keep making, developing and writing, so thanks for such an encouraging comment!
Wow, thank you for such a nice comment! I'm completely flattered!!!
Haha, it's glowing red for me right now too! And thank you! I appreciate the vote!
Hi, unfortunately I don't think there is a way. If you wanted to be able to use this project in multiple locations and have a smart phone with a hotspot, you could try using that route. Here is a link to a forum topic talking about hotspots:https://community.particle.io/t/connecting-to-an-iphones-wifi-and-using-its-3g-4g-web-connection/210/21
