A couple of days ago I had a "Best Answer" to a question regarding suspending a kayak from a ceiling. Today I find that BA was removed from my total along with the author's response. It also seems that the question has been removed from the Answers section. Can questions or Best Answer ratings be deleted by the author?

I'm not positive I'm entirely right on this, so if I'm wrong, don't jump down my throat. Thanks. When you reply to someone (I usually do something like, "Thanks,") on a question you've asked, it counts that comment as an answer to go towards your Best Answer Percentage. I don't think this is fair because: 1.) There is no way you can select your answer as a Best Answer (I would never do this, though), and 2.) It goes towards your Best Answer Percentage. In addition to routinely submitting to instructables, I also try to improve my stats (total views, comments, subscribers, ect.). So, my Best Answer Percentage (in addition to many other's %, I assume) has gone down because our answers on our own questions count towards the Best Answer Percentage. Instructables staff, if you could change this, I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

Have you checked the answers page lately? Take a look at the first page, I don't see a whole lot of Best Answers marked there. Not a big deal, most of them are fairly recent. Try checking the 2nd and 3rd.I don't see very many at all... They've been there for a few days, surely at least half should be answered. I understand that not all questions asked can be fairly answered, due to being an opinion, or just a question that doesn't need a best answer, like "What's you favorite food?" Please, if you are reading this, and recently asked a qeustion, go back and read them. If you find something that answers your question, by all means select it as Best Answer, otherwise you are wasting their time. ( "their" meaning the people who answered your question, apparently "answerer's" isn't a word.) Don't take this as a rant, because it certainly isn't, I'm just trying to speak on the behalf of all the people who take time to answer the community's questions. Thanks.

Browsing the instructables, you can't sort by favorite. If there was a battle royale between the most favorited instructables, which one do you think would win? I realize it's hard to say: Some ibles have been here a long time, so their favorite stats are higher. Some ibles deal with less popular topics, but are super popular for the people who are interested in it. So go ahead and make some allowances, and tell me about them. My two picks from what I've been able to search: 3031 fav, 3.9 million views, 2011 https://www.instructables.com/id/Led-Cube-8x8x8/ 3732 fav, 3.6 milion views, 2007 https://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-bracelet-with-a-side-release-buckle/ Not sure which one I would pick. The bracelet one is really old, but has about as many views as the LED one, so the ratio of fav/view, it wins. But from a fav/age standpoint, the paracord bracelet wins.

I need to driver (5) 1watt white LEDs (forward voltage of 3.2~3.5v) and current of 350mA. I guess the best way would be to connect them all in series and somehow give them power. This is meant to be powered off of the wall socket (whether through SMPS or a capacitor or a resistor or a transformer or anything.). My question is what's the best way to drive them? I've never really used high power LEDs before. I'd also prefer to be able to adjust the brightness...

So another year has rolled by. Many new things were posted, some were pretty good! Now I am hosting a community contest to see what people liked the most. There are 3 categories, and you can select up to 3 creations for each category (You don't have to pick 3 if you don't want to). So you can pick your top 9 most favorite creations of the year. The categories are: Best overall Knex gun Best Knex replica Best non-gun. You can select a creation to go in more than 1 category. For example, if you thought a knex replica of a real life rollercoaster was good, you could vote for it in the "Best knex replica" and "Best non-knex gun" categories. There are some restrictions of course. The creations you vote for HAVE to have a post date of 2010. Preview pictures can be posted earlier than that, but they have to be posted this year. Also, you cannot pick a gun that you made. For example, I cannot vote for my Halo Battle rifle to go in "Best knex replica". If the creation you vote for came from a site outside of Instructables or KI (like Youtube), you will need to provide a link for it. What are you waiting for? Get voiting! I'm giving away patches to the top 3 winners in each category, plus a patch for my personal favorite, which makes 10. Voting ends Monday, January 24, which gives you 3 weeks to vote.

I just want to know peoples opinion on which is the better assault rifle. personally, i prefere the ak-47 because of its better knock down power, ease of use and reliability. the only thing i can see what the m-16 has to offer over the ak-47 is its improved accuracy. what does everyone think the better assault rifle is?

This is one of those ideas that I came up with yet unfortunately I don't think that I will have the time nor effort to complete it. Yet I would love to see it come into fruition, and that's why I've decided to explain it here. What I would like to see is some crafty individual take the concept of the bristle bot and simply increase the magnitude of the dimensions and make it into a ride-able craft. This also could possibly be entered into the big and small challenge. Any questions that you might come up with I will gladly answer.

What's the best electro-static influence machine? Like which one can output the best sparks for the spinning input, ie which one is the most efficient? Wimshurst Sectorless Wimshurst (Bonnetti) Van De Graff Voss Holtz Lebiez Leyser Bohnenberger Wehrsen Wilson Or some friction (not influence) based electrostatic machine? All of the influence machines are pretty similar, but I need to make a fairly small one (think disk diameters of only 3 or 4 inches), and i'm trying to make it hand held, so efficiency is a must!

Google Chome is the best! In case you don't know what it is, it's a internet browser made by google. I like it because it is:1. Fast2. Clean (no useless stuff in interface)3. Shows all downloads on bottom4. Tabs on top5. When you open a new tab, it shows the most visited sitesTo download, go to http://www.google.com/chrome .

Please forgive me if this topic has already been discussed in the forums. With the holidays up and coming, it seemed like a potentially good time to look into getting some magazines for monthly reading material. That said, what are your favorite (and least favorite) magazines? --Purduecer

What are the best online stores out there? most reliable? fastest shipping? cheapest shipping?Of the ones listed below which are most trustworthy?bwayphoto.combhphotovideo.combeachcamera.comsoniccameras.com via pricingdepot.cometc.i'm trying to buy the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and am curious which is bestmy favorite deal was on bwayphoto, but after reading reviews of the site, i've become really skeptical. They have my camera on sale at $597 for the body and TWO lenses, but i am unsure whether it would be wise to buy from them. The lenses are the stock lense and a 75-300mm zoom whcih i think would be a GREAT deal. Should i try them and try to get through the sales pitch?Pricing depot shows that sonic camera sells the body for only $319 but eh, who knows?the reviews seemed okay. similar to those of bway, but more reliable. (they had a sales pitch, phone confirmation, etc.)b and h seems incredibly reliable, but the prices aren't amazingly low like the others. ( i guess that shows it's trustworthiness?)beachcamera i never really looked over, i just heard it was good. so, what do you think?
