An Idea for Insrtuctables, what do you think? Answered

I had a random Idea from absolutely nowhere but what If for each instructable there was a button (mabey near the rating buttons) for when you made the Instructable, this could show what people on this site were really into so we could have more of those. But as I was typing this out I realized then people might make more of that type of instructable and we would get less diversity. What do you guys and girls think?

I really don't understand your idea. Is it that something shows what kind of thing is most popular? Because you could always go here

I know about the positive ratings and all, but I'm saying like if you actually made the instructable

So you just want to know what your own instructable is rated?

No, its seperate from the ratings, its how many people did it, for example

This instructable currently has a rating of 3(three people liked it), but how many people actually made the shake?

I also think there should be a difficulty-level rating -- something from "paper only" through "code it in Lisp".

Ah, you mean an extra kind of rating "I liked it enough to make it". How about extending it - > "Made it, it worked" > "Made it, it didn't work" > "Tried to make it, couldn't".

I think, just like you said, it would cut down on the diversity of Instructables.
