We need a "Like" button

  I think Instructables is missing a "Like" button.  There are many Instructables I see that I would want to "Like".  I know there is a favorite button, but I only use that to "Tag" the Instructable, so if there is something I wanna learn I can easily go back.    Not everyone wants to favorite a post, due to the fact they might use it for the same purpose I do.  But if we had a like button at least the creator might get more of a response on how many people actually "Liked" the Instructable.

Wrong count in facebook like button

I noticed that facebook like button started appearing again on the instructables page. But it is showing like count as 127k for all ibles. I think I know the problem and the solution. It seems that the URL for the like button is set to just https://www.facebook.com/instructables. As a software professional I have seen this bug many times and its a very common mistake. Fellows at instructables should be able to fix it quickly by dynamically setting the URL of the actual ible page if thats the intent. Please find screenshots attached Thanks

A comments button next to the collection button

I thought as there seems to be a need for recognition (don't we all need that?) perhaps we could have a comments button next to the collections button to make it easily accessible so that we can leave a comment on an instructable that we like.  It would have a tiny comment box and you wouldn't lose your place in the instructions.

Rating Method

How to get a girl interested in me?

So, there is a girl that I like, but I don't know if she likes me. We not friends(Not that we hate each other, we just barely talk to each other) I don't know what she's interested in, and I don't want to act "Weird" and go, "Hi, what do you like?" Going up and talking to her would be weird and me, and possibly her, and so would just hanging out with her. I'm most likely not what you would call, attractive (boy will shoulder length hair, had to fang like teeth above my other teeth, thinks all most every one else is an idiot in some way, and only wears jeans.) If you could help, please comment, and no stupid comments please.

Right now, there are 3 Achievements: 1-100+ Featured, 100-1000+ Comments, and, 10K-10M Views. I think it would be nice to add another achievement option: Favorites (# of times people have clicked "favorite", all of them combined) For example: 100 Fav's (bronze-easiest), 1000 Fav's silver-(Harder) and, 50,000* Fav's (gold-Almost Impossible) * either 10,000 or 20,000, 50,000 I think these can be good

Well this " I like x " thing became complicated Answered

TL;DR version at the bottom, below the line Oh you know, just one of those " I like x " situations, except with a twist. So yeah, I like this girl, we talk for short the small short talk (lasts for about 0.8 seconds). She might know that I have a crush on her (since about 30% of the class knows, of which 80% are friends with this person), but I'm uncertain. Either way, I'm not shy about that. The problem lies in the fact that the 24% of the class that's friends with her knows. Normally, they're always with / around her, which makes talking with her (in the first place) already challenging. Imagine maybe 4 people interrupting your conversation only 2 seconds in. It's like trying to play a video game with the worst ping ever; your talk getting interrupted and all. I would just like to have a chat with her that lasts over 15 seconds, at least, that doesn't involve official business (all talks with her so far involved school projects and such). To my assessment, she's astoundingly similar yet the opposite of me... She's simple, yet highly organized (that's me). She doesn't wanna stand out (like me). Generally silent, shy and reserved (somewhat like me, most of the time anyways). Now here's the part I would like to relate to, but I don't know how: music. She plays the piano, and I play the violin. Now, these are performing arts; you perform these in front of people. We don't play the same instruments, therefore we can't talk about it. Composing a piece? Not a chance. That's my work mode wherein I become secluded from the world (bad impression). Intention: I would just like to make friends, thank you very much (did it last year, too, though without the complications) Age: 13 turning 14 (me) and she's 13 More details: -Freshmen -I can control myself, thank you Additionally: I don't know if she likes me or not. I just need to become friends with her to clear some things up and... make more friends? I'm not bringing my hopes up, though. I have an opportunity to start off our friendship (which is due in less than a week), since we have this Christmas party going and we're supposed to have a gift exchange with a "randomly chosen" person which is done by just pulling out folded pieces of paper and.. yeah, there's the name. The wishlist is simple, yet a tad pricey (just roughly $10, but compared to my allowance). This is getting too long Questions: -How do I make friends now? -How do I sustain this? I'm not good at making friends. I either attract them to me or it was a need that developed. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ TL;DR version: I like a girl and I want to make friends with her, but then I can't talk with her because of massive external social pressure from her ever-present friends that know I have a crush on her. How can I approach her and sustain our friendship? Thank you.

K'nex plus bow

After seeing the topic On kl about a K'nex Nerf crossbow, I thought. Why are we so intent that ONLY repeaters can win K'nex wars? I go to nerf wars, and almost EVREY gun there is single shot. And you know what? the single shots win. and in K'nex the repeaters almost alway will break at some point in a war. So I made a K'nex primary. but made under Nerf primary terms. I give you, the knex + bow. Now, I am prepared for 200000 flames about this gun. you guys are going to say "it's just a killerk pistol" Or if you look closer "it's just a Dd27" well, I dont give a **** I like it and I think if I ever go to a K'nex war with k sayers being used I will win.

How do I know whether or not by grade 8 crush likes me? Answered

I'm in grade 6 and I really like this guy but he's in grade 8 and I rarely ever see him. I only started seeing him more when he got in trouble so when I enter the school in the morning he's always there facing the door helping with the lunch "tickets" that I get everyday just to get his attention and even then it feels like he likes me but I'm not sure because he's always so emotionless around me and when I go to get lunch with my best friend, my crush only says hi to my best friend and looks at me I always feel he's eyes on me the only time we ever talked was when I first meet him I asked his name and he smiled and replied, the second was at lunch when I was laughing like crazy and he came up to us and started laughing too cause he over heard me saying something so weird and crazy to a friend of mine and everyone was like what, so yah I really don't know if he likes me or not?, I keep getting mixed messages and somethings it feels like he's ignoring me By the way I'm 5'3 and he's like 5'7 or 5'8 (I don't know why I added that in :>) and he's like the jock of the school, he's popular, cool, and calm and I'm well known around the school but I wouldn't say I was popular, I'm too confident for my own good and I'm not afraid to voice out my opinions and I think that me and my crush are a perfect match

Things ended... But I'm sure she still likes me. I still like her. We look, but neither of us goes for it. Help!?!?

Ok so here's the story. At the beginning of the year, I met this girl. She's in eighth grade and I'm in seventh. Not too much difference. We have band and algebra together. We sit next to eachother in band, and talked nonstop. It didn't take me long to realize how much we had in common. A lot. I knew I at least liked her, but I was too shy to say anything. Finally one day the band teacher said there had been a lot of flirting going on between the two of us. The next day she told me. She had felt the same way all along. We decided to try dating eachother. That was thursday. We IM'd all afternoon and most of the night that day. The same the next day. And the next. And all weekend, until monday. She didn't log on, and things had been quiet between us two that day. I knew something was wrong. She IM'd me on tuesday and ended it. OUCH! So things were very quiet the next few months. We only talked when we had to. Which wasn't much. I still liked her, but I didn't know if she still felt the same. Recently, the past few months, things have picked up momentum again. Lots of talking. Nonstop. Again. She is so much fun to be with. I've noticed in band and algebra she's been watching me, looking over every now and then. I'd always been doing that, all year. Just to see if she would look over and everything would be okay again. We've met eyes almost once a day the past two weeks. She smiles at me, a lot. I truly believe now that she still likes me, and that the feeling never disappeared. I want it to be the way it was. That was the best weekend of my life. I love her. I don't know what to do to get her back. Who out there can help? Please! I'm desperate! P.S. I know I'm going to get a lot of comments saying I'm too young to love, but whether or not that is true, I like her enough to date her. So it's beside the point. I'll be ignoring comments saying that unless they make a very strong point. Thanks!
