Help! Answered

I don't know how to do anything on this site! Can someone at least tell me how to disable my account?:(



If you would like to have your account removed please email service@instructables.com.

It looks like you just signed up today, why the quick turnaround? I think you'll find loads of fun stuff to check out here if you stick around!

To be fair, it's a difficult site to use. I'm having a hard time finding stuff, too. I just don't give up so quickly, especially because I love the subject and purpose of the site. But it's not easy or convenient to use by any means.

I would love to hear your thoughts on why you find the site difficult to navigate, please reply here or send me a Private Massage.

As for finding things, we have new projects updated hourly on our homepage and the EXPLORE bar up top also break down the entire site by category. If you're looking for something specific we have a search bar on the top right.
Is there something I can help you find?

I'm not looking for anything in particular right now, thanks. It's more a general sense of things (mostly site features, not projects) being hard to find.
When I have had a little more time to think about it I'll be happy to give you some examples.

You can't really say you "don't know how to do anything on this site", because you posted your first Forum Topic!!! That's something. :)

Plus, there are MANY members here who are willing to help if you need some pointers on how to publish an Instructable, enter contests, or how to do anything here.

So please just ask! :)

Let's see...create account, upload image to library, add avatar, create profile, create and publish a forum topic. That seems like living it up. Why disable the account?
