I miss seeing who is pro and who isn't. I think knowing how someone else is experiencing the site makes a difference in responding to them. And I am sometimes able to offer free pro memberships to people, but it's harder if I can't tell who already has one. Just my 2 cents worth.....

Ok, I got to thinking, the pro accounts seem to be moving along nicely, it would seem plenty of people are taking the plunge, with a tiny percentage of out raged users. On the 'sway over to pro' page where it lists prices, I suggest adding a series of testimonials, e.g. If someone was looking through one of my punk weapons, and hit the 'pro wall of denial' only to see my Testimonial, they might then think 'hey, maybe i should try it for a month'. Same principle, someone whom uses the forums alot, might enjoy a little testimonial from Kiteman, or Nachomahma. Not that we should play off are 'famousness' but if we get a wide range of testimonials, it might easily appeal to a wide range of people. - gmj

One feature I would like to see before I upgrade to pro is the ability to allow people who have not signed in to view all steps on one page in my instructables and print out my instructables. If I have to pay extra (as long as its reasonable) that is fine. If you make this the default for all pro users that would be even better, everyone has more incentive to upgrade to pro. Is this a reasonable feature request? Could you see this being implemented sometime in the near future?

(Sorry if I've usurped the First Post with something that is not of concern to anybody else.) The only reason that I haven't whipped out my PayPal account and "turned pro" yet is that I'd feel unconfortable with the "Pro" badge on my profile image (or avatar, or whatever one calls it). Please note that I don't feel that this applies to anyone but me, but having the "pro" badge on my image would make me feel as if I were sort of lording it over all the non-pro members, kind of an "I put my money where my 1's & 0's are, and you didn't, so nyah-nyah-na-nyah-nyah..." thing. Again, this is not how I feel about others who already have "Pro" badges on their images (in fact, I think Kiteman's badge makes him look extra-cute :), just how I - me, myself, Gorfram - would feel about having it on my - mine, my own, Gorfram's - image. And I fully expect that I am the only person anywhere who feels this way. But would it maybe be possible to become a sort of "stealth Pro" and not have the badge on my image? Thanks.

I really do not have a problem with the Pro accounts, instructables is a business, and businesses need money to survive. I would however like to suggest an idea borrowed from i-hacked.com. Over at i-hacked, the webmaster allows users to submit a how-to OR pay to become a member. Why not reward the users who make/made instructables what it is. I think instructables should allow users that submit a certain number of "high quality" instructables to become Pro members. These members have contributed as much or more than $3 per month, just by a different means. What do you guys think? -Alfonso

I purchased 2 years pro membership ( 39,99 $ ), but my account is still set as free account, where I can't download anything. I payed via paypal, my CC got charged ( March 8 ) and nothing changed. I wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org on Saturday and email@example.com on Monday about it, but I haven't received any response from them. Has anyone else had such problem, because I don't know if I can cancel that payment now and noone is responding on my emails from instructables? Please help!

Dear instructables, I've written a new one (Arduino Tetris) that's saved to my drafts. My first page has an instagram video of the game in action. Sadly I'm not a Pro account, so I can't embed the video myself. Could you please make that happen so I can publish? It's too bad I didn't post faster in the past when I was given pro and didn't use it. Ah, well. Attached is a picture that's in the instructable, so you know which one I'm talking about. Thank you!

My Mom and I used to share a Instructables account, but then she made me get my own. But when I went to add some recipes to my favorites, it said I needed to upgrade to PRO. I didn't when we shared an account. Why now? EDIT: Now I can't view all the steps of an Instructable on one page. Before, I just had to be logged on.

Thanks for the Bait & Switch.... Page prices for quarterly are shown as $3.95 per quarter. So I selected it, as it would be cheaper than the 2 year term over the same period. Got to checkout and it was switched to $11.95 a quarter.....so I was forced to purchase the 2 year plan....trying to save a few dollars on the subscription you know. Feel free to refund the difference between the $3.95 per quarter(advertised on your site) for 2 years opposed to the $39.95 I had to pay. THANKS AUTODESK!

Would I get another year added on to my Pro membership, or would I simply not get it? As you can plainly see, I am not a Pro member, and can only hope to be one someday. I just needed things cleared up. Thanks.

I'm only new this year in instructables, but I don't know what is w/ the PRO stuff here.

I am supposed to have a pro membership. I received some emails regarding my pro membership expiring, now when I look at my own profile it says my pro membership doesnt expire for almost another year, but I'm still not marked pro.

If i get a pro account how many patches will i get and if i use them all will i pro thing be gone?
Asked by knexsuperbuilderfreak 8 years ago
My Pro membership doesn't expire until next July but shows that I am not pro. What gives? I love Instructables but not enough to pay for Pro twice. If there is a link somewhere to send an email for things like this, I couldn't find it. I'm pretty frustrated right now.

So I got a free 3 month pro membership from my Instructable, https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Revive-Dead-Highlighters/, being featured. But then I got another email saying that I got another free 3 month pro membership. So when my first3 month pro membership expires, will I be able to use the other 3 month pro membership or do they both count as 1 3 month pro membership all together?
