IF I DELETE ONE OF MY IBLES, WILL MY COLOR CHANGE TO RED ? Answered

That says it all.
If I delete my most miserable instructable, I will drop to only 24 published..
Then will the robot change my orange color back to red ?

I don't know about instructables, but i received a "best answer" a few days ago which was added to my total. The next time I checked, the question had disappeared from the questions page (deleted by author?) and my best answers count went back to the previous total.

Or just don't delete the Instructable. I did not see a "miserable" one in your bunch.

I have a miserable one in the works right now. An electrical 'Ible submitted by an ME, so I know you will be rolling your eyes and shaking your head.

Thank you... for your nice opinion.
If this electrical ible is like your others it will be informative and
well thought out for an ME ;)
I particularly enjoy your application of the magnetic flux and theory.

Any way as an ME you know there is only one reliable way to test a theory.

What's wrong with orange? It's the color of Instructables.

No color bias here .....

Straight sys mechanics I do favor phosphorescent lime green.

Just one of those loose errant thoughts that slip  out-of-my-mind

Based on what I've seen, when ibles are deleted, it doesn't change the numbers and therefore shouldn't change the color either.

Didn't think of that.
Now I might have to go find my least viewed ibles to really try it :-O

Right, I'm hard at working on some now.

But will wait a few days in between to give the robot time to update the site
And test the question.
