im tired Answered

tell me if anyone else feels like this I AM TIRED OF ALL THE 1 VIDEO INSTRUCTABLES man it makes me pissed off when all i see is a video yes i know it is easier but i quote "There is no rush to publish an instructable so do your best." -ewillhelm (i think) you know it might be easier to make a video but if your going to make a video please take 5 seconds to take some pictures maybe put something else in like words because for those fast readers who dont want to watching something they could read faster than a movie 1 pyro-

FYI the Windows-Key Instructable video is not one to worry about missing. If you press that key it'll do something, if you press with e.g. D F M and anything else you feel like trying you'll find out. L

ich bin ein pyro, man, I edited the instructable according to your comments and added a secondary step where I have put a list with all the WinKey combinations shown in the video.

I wasn't deaf nor blind after you commented that with just 1(one) video and one step, it isn't really a true instructable.
So, I don't think it was really so difficult for you to oversee that a new step has been added to the instructable.

What should I have posted also? Screenshots? Sorry, but only using screenshots I cannot describe what the, let's say "Winkey+D" combination (Show Desktop) or "WinKey+M" does.
That's why I made this video in the first place.

Relax, it's my first instructable, only after you comments I realized that I've made a mistake and edited the instructable. What can I do, beginner's bad luck...
My next intructables will follow the unwritten rules of the community, won't make the same mistake again.

That Instructable, even in its current form, does not merit an Instructable. It should have been a Forum post.

It is frustrating, especially because I have a spotty connection. I would rather just have pretty pictures and text, and a video to help me if I can't figure it out. :)

I agree. It would take very little effort to grab various frames from the video and construct the Instructable. I have no problem with including the video as an added feature of the Instructable, but you can't print out a video.

I agree with you 100%, I like to print instructables then go do them

I don't have a printer, but I'm not sure I would print if I did. And now I'm thinking that I've never made anyone else's Instructable. So, out of interest, which did you make? L

I do make a lot, mabey like 1 out of every 20ish, or if there really cool, I know I do a lot of the stuff on the computer, I haven't ever kept track. I also like to post Instructables, I get some crazy inner joy of making them and seeing what people say. The forums rock too.

I agree 100%. I think that a video of the Instructable in action is definitely a great add-on, but it should always include some sort of instruction and guide to make that project.
