Any1 want to join my group This is a group that is only for guns. NO K'NEX GUNS. I'm sorry but there are way too many groups devoted to firearms/air-guns or any type of weaponry that has K'nex weapons. I respect all who make K'nex weapons, but its getting kind of annoying... welcome to the group.THANK YOU KITEMAN FOR EDITING MY POST!!!!https://www.instructables.com/forum/TZJABHGF6S8Z1RQ/https://www.instructables.com/group/gunners/

I was just looking at few groups and such and noticed that if members of the group wanted to discuss something about the group or comment on/about it the only way is to create a forum topic (or they could PM the group admin). If there was the option for groups to have comments on, but mainly for general discussion about the group, for example, a new group profile image might be in order the members of the group can just suggest or discuss images for it.

Hi guys, Obviously i am a member of instructables that is why i am able to post in the forum. I am Nigerian and i live in Nigeria. The reason i am making this post, is because i want to be sure i am not alone. It would be nice if Instructables can create a nationality database, this way people from the same country can connect, relate and partner for projects. But, until then if you are an active instructor from Nigeria, say Hi. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

Hello, I am trying to get breakdancing ibles on instructable going. It is a great way to get excercise and have fun! I made a group for all those who want to learn breakdancing. https://www.instructables.com/group/breakdancing/ For all those who already know how to do some moves like a bsic flare, post some instructions and add it to the group. Also, once breakdancing gets going on instructables, i need someone that can help me post contests and other things frequently. Thanks! =D

Have y'all considered more prominent use of the groups and member profiles, and more specifically, developing a function to enable/encourage users to form local DIY groups on their own? it could be as simple as letting people know which members are in their zipcode and including an event utility. Sorry if this already exists, I haven't noticed it.

We just had a site update, with this you can now follow a group! How is this different from joining? well if you want to just get updates from a group without being listed as a member, click the follow button, you'll get the same updates as people who are a part of the group. we also changed how groups are populated, and you'll see that the recent sort now shows you last added to a group. wayyyy cooooollll! We have an extra special surprise for next week, hold onto your pants!

I love this site and there's so many instructables I have in my favorites that it's hard to keep them all organized or even find one when I need it. I'd love to see a way to group or organize them. Possibly create your own groups or be able to tag them and sort by tag names, etc. I was thinking maybe a system similar to youtube. Or maybe this is already implemented and I'm horribly blind! hehe Anyway, thanks for listening :)

A day in the culinary life of this high school/college student generally includes at least three of the four food groups. In case you missed the FDA's new pyramid, these are Pizza, Crazy Bread, Chinese food, and Dr. Pepper. This is actually an improvement from the three years before that, which had only two food groups: ramen and not-ramen. The second is at the top of the pyramid--used sparingly.How about you? What kind of extended poor diet did you live on back in the day? or maybe even right now...

Being an engineer typically means being fluent in a dozen or more computer aided design packages. Fortunately, once you know one, you can pretty quickly pick up another. To help new users learn and expert users find a few new tricks, Alibre has started a CAD group on Instructables. As free CAD programs go, it's top of the bunch and a great way to start as a new user. However, the CAD group is by no means Alibre-specific; it's a place to share your tips, tricks, and how-tos for any package. Check it out, learn something new, and share your knowledge!

Hi, I'm Tieguy, I've been thinking about creating a group that would bring developers, musicians, programmers, inventors, people who are interested in games and robotics and any forms of geek together to work at common causes. For example, if someone came up with an idea for a game or application but didn't have a certain skill or equipment that it would require they could come to the group and ask for help, or if someone wanted to learn a skill they could ask someone in the group to give them a few pointer. I came up with this because I've got thousands of ideas for application, inventions, games etc. but half the time i don't have the resources or skills to make it a reality. Anyways, I was wondering if I created this group any one would consider joining. If it became popular enough I would go on to creating a website. please post any comments.

We really need to connect ! I am looking for other instructable machines to connect with. We, as humans, are the best machines when we connect with others with similar interests. I have particular interests, but I would like to match them with ones that I do not have. We all have ideas, inventions, and other agendas which we can achieve if we pool our efforts together with the right contacts. Lets do this and get off our collective butts! We have the potential but we will never realize our goals and dreams if we work purely on our own.

I am currently working on a project to rate knex guns, and I need your help. I need 2 people who have a lot off time and knex so you can build at least I new gun per week. We will all build the gun and I will make the collaboration. We will come to an agreement for each category and post the final results. This project should go on for a few months. Please comment.

When I click on this group, it leads to a list of featured groups: Pro Knexers https://www.instructables.com/group/https://www.instructables.com/group/proknexers// That also happens with this group: Knex Builders https://www.instructables.com/group/https://www.instructables.com/group/Knex_Builders/ If you click a link above and look up at your address bar on your browser, it's not the same link. There's more groups this happens to. Is this just me? Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

A couple days ago we made a group on Youtube for the Launch It! entries. You can check that out here:http://youtube.com/group/launchitSo now we decided to go and make another group for ALL of instructables. That one is now here:http://youtube.com/group/instructablesTo add a video to either group all you need to do is join the group and then click the "Add to Groups" link under any video you want to add. There are just over 30 videos in the group now, but there are many more videos to be added so add a few if you have the time.

There's no way to browse non-featured groups without editing the URL and removing the "feature:true" str.Go to menu: "Community: Groups", and only featured groups are returned.Click group in exploring: group : featured and "No instructables found!" Click featured, and featured instructables are returned. So those links return only instructables, not groups.If you select any of sort by: recent | views | rating links, the "featured:true" tag remains in the URL, and only featured groups are displayed.(I submitted a similar bug report a month or two ago, but the behavior is the same.)

There are so many instructables about pets floating around here, that I thought it would be nice to have a place to put them all together. There's a dog group right now, but I don't see any about cats or other pets. So I created the group 'paws, claws, and fins' if anyone wants to join it
