  • OrigamiAirEnforcer,I'm a bit of a long-time lurker around these parts. I love the site and community and have watched it evolve over the years, but I'm rarely inclined to say much.

But I've been watching you complain off and on for months, and somebody needs finally just lay things out for. This is shared in the spirit of honest and direct helpfulness, but take it however you please.The premise of your commentary above is that there is some notion existing on the site that all Instructables are considered equal.That's a strange and illogical premise, and all the pseudo-intellectual commentary that follows to support it is nonsensical BS.Obviously, Instructables are not equal. Likewise obviously, the staff that run the site and manage the contests understand this perfectly. They have to decide what to feature, what to promote on social media, what to put into the newsletters, etc. There is a huge range in the quality of content that is published on the site every day; projects are judged on their merit and interest to the audience, and it is easily understood that Instructables are not all equal. Your commentary reveals that you're suffering from blindness caused by your own self-focus. You can childishly pout and spout all you like, but it doesn't change the reality of what you’re really complaining about: you’re mad that nobody appreciates the time and effort you put into your airplanes as much as you think they should.If the point of your post was to make it clear (to anyone that may think otherwise) that Instructables are not all equal to one another, then at least have the self-awareness to apply this to yourself. Your paper airplane Instructables are absolutely not equal to many other projects on the site, and are in fact inferior and uninteresting (generally speaking), regardless of how many hours you put into improving performance and making improvements to your designs. That’s it. You can accept that or not, but please stop conjuring up nonsense to blame anything but yourself for your inability to produce contest-winning Instructables.Best to you going forward,Annie
