chronological order Answered

WHY don't the questions appear in chronological  order? you have to look back through the list to see if any new questions have been inserted - is this to do with moderation?

Just remember that I am still in school so it might take time for me to make it with all of the homework so don't expect instant results.*For those of you who want n8man sigs:Now I will telll you this now, so you don't complain larer, you are not garaunteed to get a n8man sig if you ask for it. I personally will choose who gets one because if everyone gets one then it will mean nothing at all. (if it means anything now) So if you ask you might get one, you might not, but if you do ask and I want to make you one, then you will move toward the top of the list.A few examples belowOh, and did I mention it is FREE

Order of comments to answers

Something that bugs me is if I make a comment directed to a specific answer if someone else comments to the same answer there comment separates my comment and now it looks like my comment is meant for the other comment and makes no sense. I wish they stayed in the order that they were written.

Ethernet Wiring Order

Hi, I have a cat6 ethernet cable with 8 non-twisted wires all apparently being of different solid colors. Is it OK to attach both ends to the connectors in any order as long as both ends have the same color order? Since the colors are non-standard I can't go by any convention such as T-568A or T-568B. I am using this in my home and since it will be a one-off I don't care about convention standards as long as the configuration I use will work. By the way, do I need to be concerned about the fact that they are non-twisted wires? What's the difference anyway? I would appreciate your answer. Thanks.

Ordering Custom Textiles

Hey everyone. I'm trying to recreate the vest from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I know it sounds strange, but I really want that vest. I've been obsessing over it for a long time. Now, I look at the vest on display, and I can't decide if it's a knitted vest or made out of fabric, like sewn together.

Images Appearing in the Wrong Order

Hi there, I noticed that my Instructable is not displaying images in the correct order: It all goes wrong in Step 7 where the images for that particular step fail to load. The order of the remaining images is wrong as a result of this. If you take a look at the screenshot attached you can see what images should be appearing for steps 7, 8 & 9. What actually appears is very different. I have tested it in several browsers it happens in all of them so it doesn't appear to be browser specific. I have tried removing the images, saving the Instructable then putting the images back in and it still displays in the wrong order. Is anyone else seeing this elsewhere on Instructables? Thanks!

Contests listing sort order

New contests seem to be popping up quite stealthily.  I do check the contests listing page often to see what I can throw together for fun but it is getting harder to keep up to see what is new.  New contest announcements will be buried a few down in the listing so I will not notice it if I do not scroll down the browser window. The listing does not seem to have the open contests in a recognizable order.  The Pi contest is at the top and some of the more previous ones were inserted between the open contests below. I suggest new contest announcements be piled on top so people can see what has been announced and work accordingly.  At least there is some chronological order to figure out what contests to enter.

Has anyone ever ordered from

Hey folks, Five days ago I placed an order with, for a kit to build a headphone amplifier.  It was the only website that had the type of kit that I was in the market for, so I placed an order.  This was on August 3rd, and now it is August 8th.  My order status is still pending, and their phone number on their website goes straight to some dude's voice mail.  I sent them an email, but no response yet.  I just want an update on my order, but have not received one yet. I was wondering if anyone here has ever bought from them.  They sell fairly interesting kits and products for audiophiles.  The checkout was secured, so I don't think that I have to worry too much about them stealing my information.  My card was charged, and nothing fishy has gone on.  I am just a little miffed about the lack of updates from this company. Cheers, Brennn10

Order of posting "delayed" questions should be changed.

When questions are delayed posting for whatever reason, they should not be posted in order based on the time they were asked, they should be posted to the top of the list. At least once a week I find a question of a gob of questions way back on page 3 or 4 that have no answers and sometimes have no views.  There are at least a dozen people here who look at every question, even the "boring ones".  There is no way a question posted at the top of the list can make it to page 3 with out even a look.   The way is works now if a question gets held up 24 hours (and that happens alot) it goes directly to page 2. It would work better if when the question gets posted it goes to the top of the list even if it takes a week to post it. Just my opinion.

Service that automates ordering all the parts for your Instructable?

Hey everyone, Sorry to spam the forum; just had a quick question. I am thinking of building a web-based tool that would allow you to drop the bill of materials from an Instructable in, and then other people could order everything at once when they wanted to build your kit. Do you think you would use something like this? What if it didn't have that feature, but it was just a web-based bill of materials builder where you can keep a nice-looking list, with sources, of all the parts? Thanks! Justin
