winning

Earlier today i received a comment pertaining to my instructable that made me change my perspective on this entire tournament. until now, i only really entered my idea because i wanted to win; however, after reading that i was able to, even minutely, impact somebody's life, i realized that i should post my ideas because i want to help others and make them happy. you all may get comments and just think of them as another comment, but that is not me. this comment i received has actually changed my way of viewing certain things (as odd and peculiar as this may sound). now dont get me wrong, i would still really love to win this competition -- only now its not solely for the prize, but in knowing that if i win, that i know my instructable was good enough to have impacted enough people to allow me to win. if anybody here agrees at all with what i am saying, please follow up with a comment. thank you all and best of luck. jon

I win: You win.

That's the name of my proposal. If I win I'm making the laser cutter available to all laser cutter members for free. They will mail whatever they want cut/etched and pay for shipping both ways. What would be your proposal? If it were still required?

Contest to win a PC

Someone PM'd me about a contest to create something new with their old PC.  I was going to enter but unfortunately it is only open to US residence.  I thought I would pass this along since there are a lot of Instructables posted that would be eligible for this contest (provided that you are from the US).  The prize is a PC. Here is the link: http://vizio.maker.good.is/

Win a Patch by Subcribing!

After I wrote my first Instructable, I saw that someone had subscribed to me. I thought "Wow, so cool, they liked what I wrote!" Then I saw it was my uncle. Oh well. Over time more people bolstered my confidence to write more Instrubtables and more people subscribed, and every time someone does I feel great. So for this patch-give-away, I want you to go out and subscribe to 5 people who have written an 'ible you like, (who you have not subscribed to before this time). From my own experience it is especially rewarding if they are new with only an 'ible or two under their belt and have few subscribers - or even none. Nothing makes you feel more included on this wonderful site than to feel your efforts have fans. So get back to me here (I will believe you) after you have subscribed to 5 (new to you) people and besides a cool patch, pictured below, you will be the first to receive news of new 'ibles from the folks you subscribed to! Subscribing to me does not count. I have 50 patches to give away - get going!

Number of contest wins

Hi, when people see the prizes I have won, they tend to ask me quite often, whether anybody else has won more often than me. While I knew, that wold630 has won more often than me I had no idea where I stood. So I sat down with my boyfriend to write a small script. Since you might be interested too, I decided to post the results here (starting from four and more, else there would be to many people). They might be off here and there by one contest (especially if a patch has not been handed out), but should be pretty accurate. Thanks to everybody who has voted for me and especially instructables, for hosting so many awesome contests.

Can the same instructable win in different contests?

I was wondering if the same instructable entered in three different (qualifying) contests can win grand prizes in all three or at least two of them? Does it have such a chance? Or would the judges think something like "this one has already won once in another contest so maybe that is enough for that author and we should give a chance to someone else" ? Will you have fewer chances to win if this very same tutorial has just won in another contest?

What happens if I win more than one contest? Answered

I am by no means attempting to be cocky here, but I've given it a lot of thought over the past few days, and what exactly happens if you win more than one contest with the same instructable?  Do I get both prizes, or is this impossible?  Do I get taken out of one contest, do I only get one prize?  What happens if I win two contests and they end on different days?  Say the up and the make to learn youth contest.  These end ten days apart, so I couldn't pick which prize.  In case anyone is wondering, the instructable I'm having these thoughts about is this one:  Sonic Screwdriver TV-B-Gone Conversion

Search filter on winning Instructables

Unless I have missed it, I think it would be nice to have a search feature to help narrow a search to contest-winning instructables. It could be a an extension to existing selections: Recent, Popular, Featured, Views, and...Winners? UPDATE SEP 21: Also it would be nice to see the "prize" icon below the thumbnail listing of instructables next to the featured "star" icon.

It IS Possible to win a Mythbusters Autograph

 It came in the mail today! I am just as excited as the Erik Beck autograph! Both Adam and Jamie signed a cover of Popular Mechanics that I entered to win in a sweepstakes. I sent just one entry in and 6 months later I get a large envelope from Popular Mechanics Headquarters in NYC.

Fancy winning £1000?

It's not an Instructables competition, but it's right up our street. The challenge is to make an "alternative umbrella":Design and make an alternative umbrella using partly or wholly recycled materials. Your umbrella can be an object of practical beauty or bizarre charm, and made to any scale.Since the competition is on #1 son's birthday, we'll be entering. If you're going to be in the Southwold area in September, you could enter. If you're not going to enter, how about posting some ideas I could pinch?http://www.flyingegg.co.uk/

Play with trash, win $10k

If you're a kid and you're pretty crafty, check out this Trash to Treasure contest that's being run by PBS' Design Squad show. Oddly enough, there's no definition of what a kid is and if that's physical age or mental, but I'm guessing it's under 18 or so. The goal of the contest is for kids to take discarded items and turn them into functional products. The grand prize winner gets the $10k prize and will work with pros to make a prototype of the winning design.This is very cool and will be running from April 1 to June 30.Some effusive comments from the organizer:"We are eager to see kids' ideas and everyday items transformed into innovative and intriguing inventions. What a great way to inspire a fresh approach to recycling, not to mention a new crop of engineers and designers!" said Brenda Musilli, Worldwide Director of Intel Education and President of the Intel Foundation.

Doctorow Novel Comes True?

In "For the Win", Cory Doctorow wrote about an exploitative on-line world where third-world sweatshops ran through online games to earn treasures to sell to Western gamers.  These people were known as "gold farmers". Guess what? Up to 100,000 people in China and Vietnam are playing online games to gather gold and other items for sale to Western players, a report suggests. The global market for such virtual game goods is worth at least $3bn (£1.8bn) the World Bank study estimates. About 75% of that comes from so-called "gold farmers" who stockpile game currencies to sell on later. However, Encouraging these in-game services could aid development in many poorer countries, said the report. The high proportion of money from such sales that reaches those in the country where the work was done [23% to the individual] might mean that it could aid development in many nations, said the report which was co-commissioned by the World Bank and development organisation InfoDev.

Transfering files from Windows 98 laptop to Vista-64 bit desktop.....

My former wife has an old laptop that has windows 98 on it. She broke the screen on it and asked if I could save her files on a disk for her. I have a Dell Inspiron running Windows Vista Home Premium. Is there anyway to transfer her files to my computer or disk drive w/o buying a $45 dollar cable (preferably a usb cable which I already have)? Also I have a KVM swich because I am running two computers on 1 monitor. Could I connect her laptop to this so that I can just switch between her laptop and my computer since her laptop screen is broken? This would keep me from having to keep switching the monitor from one computer to the other.

Art Contest: Win an Instructables Book!

We need art for a book and since we think that the Instructables community has plenty of talent and ideas we thought that this is the perfect opportunity for a contest. The theme of the contest is Fail Gracefully. Read on more more details.Eric Wilhelm, our glorious CEO of infinite repute, has been invited to go and talk at OFFF in Portugal in May. As an invited speaker he also gets to supply some art for the event catalog. The theme is Fail Gracefully and the idea is to embrace mistakes in your efforts. Here's their own description:"THIS ISN'T FLYING. THIS IS FALLING WITH STYLE" Be afraid of perfection. Dare to do wrong. Make mistakes. Enjoy 404. Reject everything you know and jump. Try to fly.There is no such thing as failure, but experience. No mistakes, but mistaken views. Errors? We call them acieeed(sp).So the last sentence is a bit confusing, but you get the idea. We're giving away a copy of The Best of Instructables, Volume 1 for the best piece of art and the possibility of being published in the catalog.How to enter - To enter your art, just attach it to a comment in this forum post. - The art needs to be printable so make sure that you have a copy that is high-res. - By high-res we mean 300 dpi - The attachment can be low-res - Enter by March 12th, 2009
