Sorry for the bad title but can you upload a video without having an account on youtube or metacafe or any of those websites? Like directly to instructables? If so please help me out.

Some of us should post lessons on how to skateboard because there is none on this site (i think). People could teach others by pictures or videos step by step on how to skateboard. Like tips and tricks. Also we could start at like basics like how to turn and stop. Then have some tricks like how to ollie and kickflip.

I noticed the lack of instructables on lettering; that is, writing artistically. Parts of this art are simply layout-related, others involve coloring, etc. Sometimes it's stylized, other times it's simple. See examples. Is anyone intersted in an instructable about how to do this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATkLz2w6TcY So, I was looking to double the range of my TV B Gone, but all the tutorials on how to do it are outdated with Gen 4. Can anyone make a clear explanation of the video? (For example, where to solder wires, what types of batteries, etc.)

This is a 3" cabinet pull. It caught my eye as a super steam punk component. Just imagine it with two LEDs inside the cage. Anyway how is it made ? That unit is magnetic, has 8/32 cabinet threads, solid otherwise and the cage appears 3/4 rotated This object would be perfect for 3-D printing.

Can anyone out there tell me "how to" flatten an ordinary house key??? I have been wanting to do a project for many years with keys flattened like the pennies we used to put on railway tracks. i have asked at machine shops and metal workers and EVERYONE says it can't be done... that of course just makes me want it to happen even more!!! thanks, Karen

It looks like someone is trying to sell my instructable on ebay:http://cgi.ebay.com/How-to-make-a-solar-iPod-iPhone-charger_W0QQitemZ350209932098QQcmdZViewItemQQptZOther_MP3_Player_Accessories?hash=item518a237b42&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|240%3A1318|301%3A0|293%3A1|294%3A50I have to say that's pretty weak. It's not like they even took the time to build one and modify it or improve it or anything.

Okay, I needed to buy some parts to build one of those huge Jeopardy tables with the buttons and the lights and all the little wazooos. However, I can only find RobotShop.com that has those huge 100mm push buttons, and they also have a arduino relay shield i want. Anyone ever buy from them before? How is their service and shipping response? I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP CAUSE THE CANADIAN STATION HAD SOME BAD REVIEWS

I entered the converse back-to-school contest last night, but my instructable hasn't appeared in the recent entry area in the converse back to school contest. Is there some kind of criteria or set of rules that I missed? Is it just waiting to be checked by a moderator? Can entries get rejected?

"Do you have any sewing machines?" I asked the voice on the other end of the phone. "Yes, we do." said the voice. "Great!" and I hung up and hopped on my bike, out the door before they even heard the click. Minutes later, I was home with my new $30 White sewing machine. It had electrical problems, but that's okay 'cause I'm an electrical engineer! So I fixed the wiring and set to work. The trouble is.. I'm not a sewing-engineer. In fact, I've barely ever sewn before. There are all these knobs and buttons. I played around with them to see if I could figure out what they do, but there are still mysteries. Maybe you can help me out. How do I throw it into reverse? As far as I can tell, there are two possible selector knobs for stitches. What's going on there? What should R-C-L-TN do? What am I choosing, when I turn the knob more towards SS or M? Why does the bobbin thread bunch up underneath like Gandalf's beard? The pink button in the middle of the stitch length wheel?? Anything else I should know? Muchos gracias! PS - who wants to be the first to post a "How to Sew" instructable?

I just moved from Yakima to Spokane, WA: a drive that should have taken four hours, but took seven and a half. I am currently tired. Anywho, because I am fairly new to apartment life (this upcoming apartment will be my second), I have a few questions: 1. Although I thoroughly cleaned my previous apartment, I am unsure if I will receive my deposit back. Even though I am in another city, are there any ways to ensure my deposit is returned besides sending a pipe bomb? 2. My new apartment complex is about five times larger than my last. Should I be a hermit, or should I introduce myself to my neighbors? Any other tips on apartment living are greatly appreciated!

Last night before going home from work, an ad popped up on the upper portion of the screen (not a pop-up ad) and it looked like the picture below. Well, I am always interested in new ways to have cheese (since I am NOT supposed to have any) and so I went to the site. Now, I was definitely not wishing to drive all the way to Harrisburg, just to sample some cheese bits, so I looked around the site a bit and lo and behold, they were going to visit a Giant Food store near me; and that was at noon today! I went there today, and they have really decent tasting 75% less fat cheese (cheddar) and some decent Colby too. I especially liked the habanero infused cheese, and found the Jalapeno one a bit on the mild side. Then, for coming out because I saw the ad, they gave me a REALLY nice cloth shopping (or whatever) bag. It is as roomy inside as a large paper bag is. It's been a good day....so far.

I have completed the entry form; embedded the YouTube code in proper place. After logging into Instructables, clicking on You Page, the drop-down menu displays Drafts (1) ..., clicking on Drafts (1) a window displays my entry with a checkbox preceding the entry, I click checkbox then click on the (publish) link and a new window appears that has three tabs. Current tab is Edit. Clicking on Publish fogs the page and the window returns to Edit. I have a Title and have placed a description as well. There is no alteration tried that ends with publication. If I click on preview - the proper video appears along with a Comment. I have been attempting various methods to publish since Friday, March 29th, including changes in browsers, and computers. I am stumped. I have finally answered my own question: One needs to place something in every box, i.e., Description, embed, and a graphic image. And place Tags. Then depress Upload Files. At that point it was self explanatory. Sometimes I am unable to see the tree in the forest. Maybe this may help another.
Question by kativsk
After looking around, I have decided to make a Mini-Instructable (Therefore Forum Topic) about how to not be a noob. This will be targeted for Instructables, but most goes on any site. It is also partly targeted on knexers. Step one, The name.Well, a lot goes by what your name is, don't say something like I_Love_Knex_Guns, choose something like Dsman, TheDunkis, Kiteman,Adrian Monk, Goodhart, Dj Radio, Jollex or The Jamalam. Also, try to use one that you use on other Websites, like Mepain, Kiteman or DutchJStep Two, the profile pic, Well, most people hate people who don't even change their display pic, so try to AT LEAST change it a bit. Some people actually use photoshop, like Dsman, or go even further and get one specially crafted by a true master ( IE Oblivitus) Try to get something that reflects either your name, or your interests.Step Three, ActivityWell, posting some Comments is Vital, and the whole point of Intructables is Instructables is just that, Post some Ibles! Don't be all nutty saying "This is my first Instructable, So be nice!'Forum topics are also quite important.Step four, Grammar Grammar is not a NOOB issue, but a lot more people will like you, and try to help improve it that way. Also, there is a Spell check button RIGHT beside the buttons near the Post sign, so USE IT!Step five, Activity Part two ( Bonus Points)Some things that are help you get more popular is greeting new people with nice warm welcomes. Jollex has done this quite often, with a personally Knex-related greeting, as have many other people. Another thing people do is search "knex" and the go to recent, and post something nice on all the new ibles (Block triggers and Et Cetrea Exempt)Example of a great welcome.Welcome!I noticed you'd joined the site, and also that you seem to be a K'NEX fan.That's brilliant!We have a lot of keen K'NEXers here, and we're quite a busy community on the site. Can I ask you to remember a few things, though? We are keen to show off K'NEX in its best light here, so please read these points carefully:(if you don't you run the risk of being labeled as a "noob")Pictures.One of the keys to a good Instructable is good photography. Please, don't use photos where the important bits are too small to see, or out of focus. Use good lighting and the macro mode of your camera. If you do not have macro, make sure things are in focus, then use an image editor to crop off the bits you don't need. Even Paint will do this.Text.This site is used by people all over the world. Lots of them don't speak English as their first language, and use translation websites to read your work. Please, do your best to use proper spelling and grammar, and avoid things like "u", and "r".GunsNow, as K'NEX gunners, we are dedicated to innovation. Innovative guns are what the K'NEXers what to see. But don't limit your self to guns, as some K'NEXers are annoyed by all the guns. And, please, no more little 12 piece guns.More!You know K'NEX is about more than guns, and so do I, so let's see your other projects - have you designed a clever robot arm? A new vehicle? A ball-sorter? Show us!Again, welcome to the site, and to the K'NEX community, and thank you for taking the time to read these hints. For more info click here.>Your name here<Well thanks, and I don't really think this needs a Whole ible, but If anyone wants to collaborate one, PM Me.

This is my idea: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cigar-bo... This is the other idea: https://www.instructables.com/id/False-Bo... The second idea was a finalist in a contest on Instructables. I was also in the contest with the first idea. I was wondering exactly how this was a finalist over mine? My idea was the same thing, but improved. It was even entered before his! My idea featured some of the things that people commented as an improvement in his instructable. The only thing I can think of is maybe the simplicity of design? Mine has more to it than just a secret box though, and it was far more concealed.
