Hey everyone, my dad and i were wondering what people can do to us as far as the law is concerned, if someone got hurt trying out an instructable. I thought that the site was a play at your own risk but, my dad and are starting to think it isn't. We just don't want to be caught up in court! We haven't gotten in trouble but just thought I would ask! Now i don't think anyone can be hurt by what i put up but i don't want to risk it! If anyone has any info please let me know!

Second LawAn unsuitable thread isolated from replies will descend the list into obscurity.This is an "anti-spam" law. We have all seen threads appear that advertise odd things - trainers, dating sites, Chinese plastic-moulding factories - and we all agree they should no be here. It is tempting to reply to the threads to express our chagrin, but that makes the thread bob to the surface again, pushing more useful threads down.Far better to flag the thread and let it slide down the list until it disappears.In addition, this law can also be applied to trolls - if somebody starts a thread specifically to start an argument (as opposed to a discussion), or just to put another user or group of users down, then they are trolling. Those threads should also be allowed to slide.Addendum to the second lawSpam advertisers may be chastised through the Private Message system to prevent their thread's longevity.If you cannot resist giving a spammer a piece of your mind, the PM system is very useful - the spammer gets an email alert to your comment, they are aware of your feelings, but the thread is undisturbed.Similarly a troll may be gently reminded of the site's Be Nice policy via a PM. Should the troll decide to respond with vitriol, they are deprived of the audience they crave.Finally, you can help the site financially - using a PM to casually point out the correct route for advertising could, perhaps, result in a new fee-paying advertiser for the site.

First Law On the Instructables website, the use of correct spelling and grammar shall be a constant criterion. Note: Edited Law There are several reasons for using correct English in all of our work on this site, but the most important ones are: It shows that you have taken time over your project, put some effort in and are proud of it. Like a smooth finish is the sign of a careful craftsman, a well-formed sentence is a sign of an Instructable that is worth trying. Clarity - the use of poor grammar or spelling can completely mangle or disguise the meaning of a piece of work, causing problems and wasting time as readers seek clarification. Inclusiveness - Whilst it may be cool to use the most current street slang or message-board abbreviations, there are those (myself included) who do not move in the internet circles where these terms originate. Excluding part of the membership by making the slang impenetrable also cuts you off from a deep well of information and advice. Time - slang dates, and changes rapidly. For instance, the word "gay" originally meant "carefree", then "happy", then "homosexual". Now, to the pupils at my school, it means "annoying" or "sad". Imagine what your latest slang could mean to future generations of readers. The web is a multi-lingual place. It would be conceited of us to assume that all readers speak English as their first, or even their second languages. There are a growing number of members and casual readers that rely on translation software to read this site. Translation software cannot deal with poor spelling or new abbreviations, and will render our words as gibberish.

This is where the whole Law thing started:There is a fairly regular kind of thread that appears here.It starts should I make an Instructable about insert topic here?You know what? The answer is yes. Even if nobody else on the site is even vaguely interested in insert topic here, it is probable that somebody with access to the internet, somewhere in the world, will eventually develop an interest in insert topic here and resort to Google. Since this site is googlable (is that a word?), they can end up here, grateful to you and potentially a new and useful member of the site.So, unless it breaks the guidelines for what is suitable here (basically, Please remember that this is a family site), and you're not just re-inventing the wheel, then the answer to should I? is always yes.This has become the Zeroth Law:If an Instructable exactly like yours has not already been posted, then you shall post your Instructable.Instructables are, after all, the whole point of this site. If nobody posted new Instructables, the site would shrivel and die.It doesn't matter what you make, as long as it falls within the bounds of "good taste" (define them how you will). What does matter is that you make. If you look at other sites limited to making only one kind of thing (jet engines, chests of drawers, whatever), they tend to have a slow input of new projects, with many variations on a few basic themes posted early in the site's history. Instructables has a daily project count that rarely drops below ten, and sometimes hits thirty.Addendum to the Zeroth LawIf your Instructable has an identical goal to a pre-existing Instructable, but achieves that goal by a different or improved route, or in a different style, then you shall also post your Instructable.Why the addendum? Sometimes potential posters worry - there's already a project quite like mine, so should I waste bandwidth with mine? Of course you should! Some people will prefer the first version, but other people will prefer your version - maybe it's easier to read, the photos are better, or they prefer your sense of humour. Maybe you use different raw materials, or use different tools. Either way, unless your Instructable is indistinguishable from an earlier project, you should post your own.

So my friends and I are planning to sell, well...things (I'm not going to give out any details as of now, later) that incorporate small round metal disks. now in all of our prototypes weve used coins for our purposes and they work great. but for what we make we need to cut and sand coins in different ways. and my friends always tell me "its illegal to change money in any way." But I've heard that its only illegal to modify money to change or duplicate the amount its worth - like making a penny into a dime is illegal but making a penny pac man figure isnt. can anyone clarify this for me? I'm fine doing illegal things like modifying coins for personal use but if were going to sell these I want to be a little more clear as to what is going on.

Third LawAs the level of civility approaches absolute zero, the uselessness of an exchange of posts approaches infinity.There are many threads which are started in good humour - seeking information, looking for an intelligent discussion, or passing on a humorous tidbit. Most of them carry on in the same vein, but, occasionally, people get carried away. Discussion becomes argument, argument becomes name-calling. Tempers fray, feelings get hurt, reputations damaged. We've all seen it, or even been there.Eventually, when a thread begins to descend into the mire, it actually swamps all the original good it might have done.Such a thread must be walked away from. Wash your hands of a troll before you get dragged too deep. Abandon it to the fate of the the Second Law, before you waste too much precious bandwidth.

Some of the regulars will remember that, nearly two years ago, I accidentally formulated a set of rules (which some people called "Laws") about posting on Instructables. I have seen a few threads and posts recently that suggest some people need to be reminded about those Laws. I also think they need rebranding, so I present for members who have been around for only a year or so... The Instructable Laws: Zeroth Law If an Instructable exactly like yours has not already been posted, then you shall post your Instructable.

I know this is kind of random, and I just now, moments ago, accidentally discovered this, but there is a GOODHART's LAW :-) It states: once a social or economic indicator or other surrogate measure is made a target for the purpose of conducting social or economic policy, then it will lose the information content that would qualify it to play that role. This almost sounds like a parallel to the famous Quantum Mechanics rule of effecting the state of a particle by observing it. This bulletin was brought to you by the Totally Random Goodhart Reseach and Useless Information Recovery team. Thanks for reading.

In UK law, what exactly is counted as 'modifying the appearance of this airsoft gun'? Does it mean changing its colour? (it is currently a 2-tone no VCRA required airsoft gun) Would this be breaching this law: Creating a minigun out of PVC pipe, spray painting it, and slotting the airsoft gun into the bottom to make the model seem functionable, within the airsoft guns usual limits.

Wondering how wifi data, hacking and air rights work in terms of law and wireless security. If data packets are entering my "air space" why are or aren't I allowed to do with them as I want? So long as packets aren't injected or intended to alter private APs, I assume my air rights on my property trump other laws. I'm proposing no laws are broken; using legal, open software and or writing your own code. I honestly don't care one way or the other, I'm just curious as to what others know, or their opinions on the matter. A Google search with hacking, air, rights, etc..... turns up more than what I care to sort through.

Right to bear arms-again i dont think that was fill out the application and never actually bear the arms, leave them locked in a cabinet in your house Pursuit of happiness-Is that not what the law does, prevents people from doing what makes them happy. Are people going around saying 'What law could I break to make myself less happy'? Freedom of speech-I dont know about this one. I guess that's upheld pretty well.

Question | last reply
I am somewhat familiar with patent law. One of the details of law that I like is the idea of "prior art" Basically if you publish an idea, someone else can't come along at a later date and patent it. You have established "prior art." This may and may not aid you in patenting the idea yourself, but at least someone else can't patent it and shut you out of the market. A full blown patent may cost 1000s of $, but publishing is a different matter. At least that is my understanding. Does stuff published online (thru instructables, for example) count as "prior art." ? Also do you personally retain all rights? or does the website? Some of both ? Y? N? M?

I want to make my own answers, proof check with others, and probably e-publish it. My question is on the legality of doing this. The copyright aspect pertains to the questions themselves. The answers are all original on my part. Now I suppose it is harder for copyrighted, recently published books but do you think the authors of free albeit copyrighted texts (textbookrevolution.com) are more willing to allow me to do this?

I just heard a story on the news that one of the local school districts will be ending summer vacation two weeks early. When school starts is codified by law and the only way for a school to receive an exemption to open early is to be an "academically high achieving school". Does this make sense to anyone? Schools that are doing good (as defined by a remarkably stupid standardized test) get more time to teach, whereas schools that perform poorly get less time. I can't really understand that reasoning. I've worked in public education, and I'll never understand the reasoning behind anything they do.and as an aside.Florida, come to play ball at the beach, stay because you've been imprisoned for playing ball at the beach. ~sigh~Wanted to add one more thing, The brevard county transit system is names "Space Coast Area Transit" AKA "The SCAT" and their website is ridescat.com.

By a car? Besides when I've managed to run over myself, all of the times that I've been hit have been at intersections, obeying the lights. I got hit by a 50cc scooter once, too. That was less painful than hilarious. I think I got hurt less than the gal on the scooter. I had to help her pick it up and get it started again...I cross busy 4-lane streets in the middle of the block, rather than the light, for precisely that reason. Every time I've tried crossing Federal at the light, I've been hit or nearly hit by some cholo in a junker of a lowrider. Crossing the same street in the middle of the block, I've only had once close call, and that was my English teacher trying to be funny and just buzzing me.One of my friends got laid out in the crosswalk by someone who jumped the light a few miles from our school. She was in a bad way for a while, with multiple compound fractures.How about you? Ever been hit? How do you handle traffic and crossing?

Ok, so there's a new show in the U.S. called Revolution. I haven't watched it, but it seems the premise is a world where all electronics suddenly stopped working. No iPhones, no lights, no vibrobots. nothing. My question is, what possible explanation could they have for this? A world where electrons won't flow doesn't make sense to me. They still have lightning. They still have fire. Their brains work. Does anybody know if there is any science behind this? What could stop electricity from working in all technology and still allow the natural functioning of electrical processes in nature? I refuse to watch the show because I'm pretty sure they will never answer this question, or worse, they will blame it on aliens.

Question by Neovenetar | last reply
A while ago my wife got one of those singing Hallmark greeting cards. (This particular one played the Law and Order theme song) Well after a while it no longer played the song. I opened it up and found that there is a circuit board inside with a 3v button cell battery attached to it. I removed the board and the speaker and the battery and I'm pretty sure that I could attach wires to the two contact points and connect them to batteries that would complete the circuit and allow the theme song to play again. What I want to know is if I need to take any special consideration when putting in a new battery(s). I was going to try to just put two AA batteries in series (1.5v +1.5v =3v, right?) but I don't actually know anything about electronics and so I wanted to ask here if there were any resistors needed or if there were any differences between the button cell and the AA batteries that would require me to do something different.While we're on the topic of these cards I just thought of a neat project. Design some sort of holder for the circuit boards that would allow them to act as sort of an interchangeable cartridge. Basically detach the speaker wires and battery contacts from various boards out of various cards and design some sort of holder with contacts for the speaker and power source at the appropriate points and be able to change out the different boards. Not really practical but sounds like fun.I just thought of yet another question!Would there be anyway to hook the board up to some sort of audio cable (in place of the speaker maybe) so that I could plug these into a computer and record the song off of the board in a digital format. (Again not very practical but sounds like fun.)Anyway, this is my first post here and I'm sorry if it's a bit jumbled but I don't have a very organized mind and sometimes it's hard to put my ideas down in a succinct manner. I tend to just ramble on incessantly in a train of thought sort of manner until I think that I've said what I think I wanted to say. In closing, I like this site and plan to be around for a while and learn as much as I can. If somebody would like to help me with these ideas/projects I would be happy to provide pictures of the circuit board and pieces that I have if it's necessary.Thanks.~JoshI'm using two AA batteries. I have a wire between the positive side of B1 and the negative side of B2 and wires coming off the open ends. I tried connecting the batteries from the spot where the negative side of the button cell was to the silver rectangle thinking that that would complete the circuit and make music. That didn't work. Then I noticed that the positive connection for the circuit was actually where the clip that secured the battery was before I removed it and that the positive and negative sides of the battery were going through a capacitor before touching the final contact. so I tried placing the positive wire up on the positive contact and then placing a wire from the positive contact to the final contact but that also didn't work. I don't have any solder and have been using electrical tape to secure the wires. The wires are a fairly thin (I don't know the gauge) stranded copper. I'm not sure if the wires aren't making good contact or if I'm just doing something wrong.
