Great Pro Account Giveaway! Answered

I have, so far, published 179  instructables, many of which have been featured, and I have also been lucky enough to win a few contest prizes.

This means I have accumulated Pro codes.

A lot of Pro codes.

To be honest, it would take a genuine medical revolution for me to live long enough to be able to use them all, so I want to spread the joy.

But, you have to earn them.

All you have to do is post one of four things in the comments:
  • A photo or video of something you made by following one of my instructables. 
  • A photo or video of something you made that was (however vaguely) inspired by one of my instructables.
  • A link to an instructable of your own that you are kind of embarrassed about publishing, but can't really bring yourself to delete.
  • A photo of an instructable-related image you have spotted "in the wild" - say, an instructables shirt on a passing stranger, or you meet a dog-owner with their dog's back legs in a home-made wheelchair.

The ones I like (and I'm often easily pleased) will be sent a code to unlock a 3 month Pro account. If I'm really impressed, I will send a code for a full year's Pro.

This contest is open to absolutely anybody, anywhere, with no deadline (except for the natural deadline of running out of codes), and only one real rule: don't be greedy.

If you are already Pro, you can also nominate somebody else to receive the Pro code, or just pass it along to them yourself.

Feel free, as well, to share this topic with your friends you wish would join the site.

(What does turning Pro actually get you?)

A word of warning: if you do not use your code quickly, I may accidentally give the same code to somebody else, and if they use it first, you're kind of stuck...

Now I am laughing at myself because I guess I just don't know how to add the pic or if I am the only one that can't see it. Chucks Kiteman, still so much to learn.

Thank you for that. Sorry for my learning curb, I hope I will be able to finish my other instructables in time. The kids costumes are so detailed. Thank you again and Happy Halloween!

I'm back.....Kiteman, I added an Instructable that I am entering for your contest and the costume contest. Thank you again for inspiring me to just go for it. I just am not sure how to attach it as a link or how I am able to get you to view it? Other than to say "check it out!" I just hope my Instructable is fun and encourages others to try it. Hope you like it.

Can I still enter just because you inspired me? By the way, I gave you and instructables a shout out on my husband's and my new podcast show yesterday. We still need time to edit it, but a big thank you to the Kiteman. I'll let you know all the details soon. Hope that you will give us a listen.

Of course you can enter!

When the podcast is ready, why not create a new forum topic to let folk know?

I did your Secure Ipod Ible, and it actually was helpful, having lost my ipod once at my local leisure centre, I got it back a few days later

Hi!
I am not sure if this is adequate or not but i have a pic of my son with his own home made Ging... He has made quite a few and different variations of these but i cannot seem to find my photos at this time. It may take days!
Also he made a blow dart out of a pen, and accompanied it with tiny darts!! Which he was supposed to make using pins, but yes, mom *myself* had to step in and be an adult no matter how much i would have loved to have seen it! So he had to use toothpicks which worked AMAZINGLY! My son also attached tiny feathers to accompany the darts in their flight! I still kick myself to this day that i did not take any pictures of these as they were 'Out There'
Hope you enjoyed the little post anyways, its taken me 4 attempts, as a box kept appearing and leaving i didnt notice i hadnt logged in and therefore, kept having my whole post wiped! I myself LOVE to modify and fix things as i love messing around with tools!!! But i have yet to make something worth a pic lol

To be honest, I feel that half of my Ibles are embarrassing (compared to the electronic pieces I did when much younger), but here are a few, in case you feel any qualify.

Number 1  ie mess one

Number 2: a great idea without the skills to make it happen

Number 3:  Mess #2

Number 4:  anouther failed idea

Number 5:  overly simplistic

Number 6:  not very EGGciting

Based on your secure iPod instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-your-iPod-more-secure/, I thought about having emergency contact details on my iPhone lock screen and so I came up with:

I just hope that it is never required, but you should always Be Prepared

I saw your set up on seed germination (https://www.instructables.com/id/Gardening-Science-Investigating-Germination/step5/The-Science-Bit/) and decided to take it further, rather than sitting in the same water these seeds were rinsed automatically in an open arean giving room to grow, the beans were really sweet too
