  • Hello Warren,Generally speaking, it is not advisable to use autoplay music or videos on Instructables. It is a huge turn-off to visitors and generally not an appreciated tactic, and for that reason we advise against it. Thank you, Sam (seamster)Instructables Community Manager

  • Add Background Music to Your Instructable!

    I personally find autoplaying music and videos the worst, most intrusive and off-putting thing you can do on a website. I would advise against authors doing that here on Instructables. But that's just my 2 cents.

    View Instructable »
  • AH! That appears to be a bug - you should typically see any of your Instructables that are eligible show up there. And yours is clearly eligible for First Time Author contest. I will report this bug and it should be fixed soon.I've gone ahead and entered your contest manually, so you should be all set. For future reference, you may also enter contests from your actual Instructable page as well - see the panel that says "About This Instructable" and the "Contest" button at the bottom. I didn't mention this before, but it's a second option which appears to be working correctly at this time.Cheers,Sam (seamster)Community Manager

  • LUMOS: Smart Lamp for Better Sleep

    Very good instructable. I've noticed that when I spend the last couple hours of my day with only "red" lights (soft, warm lights rather than cool blue fluorescents or daylight bulbs), I always fall asleep better. It really does shut down your brain and lead you into a better night's sleep. Thanks for sharing this neat project!

    Tree Bandsaw Box

    This is one of the most beautiful bandsaw boxes I've seen. Excellent work! I've never made a bandsaw box, but this nudges me to take a crack at one. Love it!! :)
