User input not URL-encoded in the "Ask a question" input

On this page: https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-question/?sort=RECENT There's the "enter your question" input box.  The user-input is added to the GET vars as "questionText", and the spaces are encoded as %20, but the ampersands and question marks are not.  This results in the question being split up & ignored, and the remainder is interpreted as another querystring var.  So typing in "What is this & that?" becomes "questionText=What%20is%20this%20&%20that?".  The ampersands & question marks (and all other non-URL safe) characters should be encoded. Thanks!

The "Ask a Question" feature activity is down ( substantialy LESS ) in recent memory

There used to be a lot more traffic activity in this  Ask a Question  area of instructables. Since changing the access to this feature there has a marked decrease of new adult questions ! Now we mostly see many youngster Padawan electricians and some old guard members. Maybe the old access button could be returned to the more prominent position of years ago. That would please me.:-) Maybe I am venting about a trend due to expanding social media. Thanks for reading, Alex....

Ask a Scientist [topic: ancient science]

Topic: The 2000-Year-Old Computer (and Other Achievements of Ancient Science)We learn in school that the science of our ancestors included such endearing bunk as flat planets, geocentric solar systems, and the balancing of the body's four humors. (Even the pre-internet decades of my youth now seem to me like a dark, distant era of ignorance that I can't believe we all survived.) Did our ancient predecessors get anything right? Of course they did. Tonight, science historian Richard Carrier will discuss the nature and limitations of ancient science.While crucial contributions have come from many different cultures throughout history, Richard will talk about a handful of Graeco-Roman scientific and technological advances that might surprise you. Here's a teaser: we'll learn about the Antikythera mechanism, the oldest known computer discovered in a 2000-year-old shipwreck near Crete (pictured below). Cool.ABOUT THE SERIES: Ask a Scientist is an informative, entertaining, casual science lecture series, held at a San Francisco cafe. Each event features a speaker on a current topic, a short presentation, and the opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressure, just food, drinks, socializing, and conversation about the universe's most fascinating mysteries.

This was from one of my friends. He wanted me to post one of his sites here because I told him quite a few people read these forums. Anyway, here's the link. It was kind of a joke he made up ( he's a bit odd) and he carried it on and made a site. I've looked at it... it's weird. Let me tell you again I did not make this site. He did.

Asking parents for tobacco pipe, help please

Dear Instructables community,      I am 16, closer to 17 and for some reason i find nostalgia in pipe smoking. I have never known any pipe smokers but most people in my family have smoked at one time to another. I am wondering if i should ask my parents if  i can smoke a tobacco pipe or just wait in silence till i am 18 and buy it regardless of their opinion. For all those who are going to try to warn me to the risks of tobacco i know. It is proven that pipe smokers also live 2 years longer on average by the surgeon general. Also it would be legal because i spend my summers in Massachusetts where tobacco can be gifted by parents or guardian. None of my friends smoke pipes, i don't think its very popular in my age group at all i want to do it for me, why i am not sure.                                                                                                                     Thankyou

"Ask the Experts" DVD launch.

A few users may have heard about me speaking at a conference with some other youths to 350 people, this was the launch of a great DVD made to help teachers, counsellors, youth workers and many other people understand about bereavement from a teenager's or a child's perspective. It was a great project collaboration between Cruse Bereavement Care, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer care and Barnardos. I was on this project from the planning stage, after the grant from the Big deal lottery Fund had been approved. The project took us to the Share centre on a planning day followed by a weekend where we got all the footage for the final project. Not long after the same project took me to Westminster Abbey to speak to MP's and Lords about the state of government help and counselling for bereaved children and teenagers, that initiative was started by MP Alex Davey who was in the same position as a teenager and hopes to improve care for these things throughout the UK. The project was a great thing to do and I personally enjoyed the hoohah out of it. The end product is a great resource and I would really recommend it to any teacher or counsellor who deals with teens, it could help a lot of people, even the likes of clergymen and ministers. I'm not just saying this because I'm in it but that surely helps, it was received really well by everyone at the conference which broached many topics and had a lot of interesting material at it. We also did another youth panel though this time we were asked set questions about the project rather than the audience be able to ask. The DVD should be available from cruse soon, I honestly do think it's worthwhile...Some press about the launch... Medicalnewstoday.comPress release[
