Win a Patch by Subcribing! Answered

After I wrote my first Instructable, I saw that someone had subscribed to me. I thought "Wow, so cool, they liked what I wrote!" Then I saw it was my uncle. Oh well.

Over time more people bolstered my confidence to write more Instrubtables and more people subscribed, and every time someone does I feel great. So for this patch-give-away, I want you to go out and subscribe to 5 people who have written an 'ible you like, (who you have not subscribed to before this time). From my own experience it is especially rewarding if they are new with only an 'ible or two under their belt and have few subscribers - or even none. Nothing makes you feel more included on this wonderful site than to feel your efforts have fans.

So get back to me here (I will believe you) after you have subscribed to 5 (new to you) people and besides a cool patch, pictured below, you will be the first to receive news of new 'ibles from the folks you subscribed to! Subscribing to me does not count.

I have 50 patches to give away - get going!


I subscribed to 5, I don't really care about the patch. I usually don't think about subsribing so this is a good topic, since it actually made me do it. Even if I don't get a badge, thanks.

I have a habit of subscribing to those (especially new persons) I feel have a lot of potential....

Of course you get a patch. I think you will enjoy the subs because when they do something new you get an email, it keeps you informed.

I have subscribed to 5 people. If you don't have any more patches, it's okay.

I like patches!

You will have to wait a month, I am on the road without my notes which have the patch codes - sorry, but I won't forget. I could send you a generic one if that will do.

I subscribed to 5 new people

I have subscribed to 5 new people. If you don't have any more patches it is okay. Thank you for generous to so many people. -blueblobbs

I just subscribed to 5 new people. I remember when I was like that I felt very left out, but now I have 17 and I am very happy! This is a good cause! PotatoCoffee

I'm out of town and my powers don't work from here - wait a few weeks and you will be patched. I won't forget.

I am now subscribed to 5 new people, thanks for the patch.

I just finished subscribing to a few members right now!Their names are:


I actually felt glad that I subscribed to them!

Your word is good enough, no names necessary, you be patched! Thank you!

Thanks for posting this you made great points. Spread the love I say.

I have subscribed to 5 people.

I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you subscribed to five, no need to name who you subscribe to, you will be patched in just a moment. Thank you and keep it up!

I make it a point to subscribe to those that either have left off a bit on their submissions, or some of the newer ones that "give me the impression" that they may only need a little push to get going :-)

Thanks! I have been subscribing to quite a few actually. I thought that I sent the names but glad you gave me the benefit anyway. I tried to subscribe to those with few numbers to encourage them.

I subscribed to
robotlover4ever for the bathroom sign switch prank
Dombeef for the mechanical iris
kentsokay for the steam punk time device on the cheap
lemonie for the milk chocolate penut butter cups
M.C. Langer for the valentines robogrinch

Cool, you be patched, you don't have to say who you sub'ed to, I'll take your word. But it is cool to let folks know what you think is great.

Is just subscribed to:
tstartrekdude because of his macaroni rome instructable
you (ninzerbean) because you deserve it
username252 because of his ninja star
ewilhelm because he is the CEO an his instructables have pictures of a cute baby in them
lukethebook333 because of his invisible book shelf

Great, except you have to find another person to subscribe to besides myself, that doesn't count, sorry. Let me know when you do. I might suggest Thinkenstein, he does some amazing stuff. Or Smoocheroo for great food 'ibles, I may have her name spelled wrong but you'll find her.

Yeah I am already subscribed to scoochmaroo but I just subscribed to alanmon becaus of (his?) chopstick instructable.

I subscribed to 5 new people. This is a great way to get new people subscribers, and I will try to do the same if I turn Pro.

i subscribed

Great!, but do me a favor in the light of how this patch was supposed to be given out and subscribe to 5 new people and don't include me - I feel sort of like it looks like I was trying to get subscribers when that was not the case. Thanks!

Sure, sure, but we of the community of the Sacred Order of Conspiracy Theorists know the TRUTH LOL  ( Just kidding! )

If you take each of the third letters of the original post and convert each one into letters based on the Akdmvjn's archaic language in the order of switching consonants with vowels every 4th conversion, and then going clockwise around a campfire of heritage tomato vines in counterclockwise directions at the same time as you get the square root of women in America who own cats and add that to the prime numbers you obtained in the first step, you will see that each time you solve for "x" that the original post will read "subscribe to Goodhart for a good time".

LOL very good.....Da Vinci code anyone? Or perhaps National Treasure ;-)

I did it. Is the contest still going?

Subscribed! Also, cool Japanese manhole cover. It looks like the ones I've seen in Nagoya.
