Giving away a 1 year Pro Instructables membership! Answered

Picture of
I'm giving away a one year Pro membership.  Why?  I won one in the Homemade Holidays contest.  I plan on continuing to support Instructables with payments every two years.  So I want to share the love. 

Here's how to get a chance at winning. 
  • Your account must have been created on or prior to January 18, 2010.  I don't want people creating fake accounts.
  • You must not already have a Pro membership.
  • You must have at least one Instructable published by midnight Pacific time on January 24, 2010.  It does not need to be new - it could be years old.  (It must meet the guidelines here - in other words, have original photos, decent writing, and reasonable organization.  If you want to know if yours will qualify, post a link to it in the comments below and I'll give you feedback.)
  • Subscribe to me!  (Just click on the orange box over there ---> )
On Sunday, January 24th at 11PM Alaska time I will tally all my subscribers, eliminate pro members, and then do a random drawing.  I'll make sure that the other criteria (no duplicate entries, "worthy" Instructable, etc.) are met and will announce the winner here.

Sorry!  This "contest" is now CLOSED.

The winner is... II.13

I used the random integer generator at Random.org to select a number based on my subscribers. 

Thank you to my new subscribers. (I guess if you want to you can unsubscribe from me... but if I win another I'll probably do this again... and no matter what I do my subscribers will have a shot at it.)  For anyone interested, I added 63 new subscribers.  I benefited by interacting with some new people, checking out some different projects - some really undervalued ones too!

And of course, thanks for the Instructables staff for letting me do this!

Nice drawing!

Some one I know who has a terrible fear of slugs and snails wrote "Beware! A gastropod lurks within!" on a plastic bag she captured a slug in. That sticky note now lives on her fridge, making me laugh every single time I look at it.

Well done, ll.13!

I don't see a comment, though - has anybody told him?

This contest was great, though.  I hope other already-pro members who win more pro-ness follow suit.

This might help their should be a way to take a snap shot with you web cam. If you cant do this useing the software that cam with your camera you might want to google it or something and maybe find and DL some different free software so you can. SAKAR international has software like this but not sure if it will work with your camera. It cam with one of those kids cams that i got for my daughter at wal-mart . We gave 12.00 for it if I remember correctly. Now of course whe wont let me use it LOL!

Thank you for your reply. I am currently repairing my digital camera, plus I wasn't exactly sure how to take photos for something like this. Maybe it will help someone who wants to learn tho. it woulda been nice to have been able to be a subscribed member, but I have alot of instructables (when I get my camera repaired) and atleast I can still share with others! This is a great site and I wish I were in a financial situation where I could support it!
