I'm not positive I'm entirely right on this, so if I'm wrong, don't jump down my throat. Thanks. When you reply to someone (I usually do something like, "Thanks,") on a question you've asked, it counts that comment as an answer to go towards your Best Answer Percentage. I don't think this is fair because: 1.) There is no way you can select your answer as a Best Answer (I would never do this, though), and 2.) It goes towards your Best Answer Percentage. In addition to routinely submitting to instructables, I also try to improve my stats (total views, comments, subscribers, ect.). So, my Best Answer Percentage (in addition to many other's %, I assume) has gone down because our answers on our own questions count towards the Best Answer Percentage. Instructables staff, if you could change this, I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

Me and my brother are buying posters for our basement, and we want to know what poster is the best. We already have Scarface, Godfather, Indiana Jones, Batman: The Dark Knight. So if you have a favorite post it. (We would buy Saving Private Ryan, but it cost 20-30 bucks. Thanks

Revised The new format on a members page gives a bare hint of Best Answers. There are some of us who enjoy helping others and keep bragging score in exchange. That germinated a thought at least one considered worthy of the forum. Why not make it a soft-switch the user can activate by them for their page ? Like that age thing we lie about..... A

I was wandering if you could make "the best of instructables book"? as there all instructables that every one has acess to. It may take time but would save you money if you printed it at a photo printing place or somewhere like that.

Not squashed squirrels or a mangled moose, but useful stuff. Let me explain:I was driving along and there was a bright yellow thing in the gutter. It turned out to be one of those hanging crane controls, with a couple of metres of cable attached. She Who Must Be Obeyed wouldn't let me stop and collect it in her car, when I went back later in my car it was gone. Shame.What's the best stuff you have found lying dead in the street?

Hello I am looking for the most accessible, cheapest, hottest burning, most efficient fuel and maybe even environmentally friendly. And what would be already in my house(and NO I AM NOT MODIFYING MY NATURAL GAS PIPES).So post what you think. I usually burn fuels in those little pop can stoves, and in my pyrotechnics. Thats Not My Stove. But Its VERY similar.

No I'm not talking about those annoying one shot noob guns. I'm talking about true trigger, multi-shot, pistols that are decent for their size. What are your best tiny guns? I want to see just how small a gun can get and still keep a good amount of features. Mine is based off of the TDS. It loads 5 dark greys, has a true trigger, and features a firing pin lock. Let's see if you can beat that! I'm JK I'm sure someone will. I made my gun only to be as small as posible so it shoots only like...2 yards/meters depending on the rubberbands. And if anyone hasn't then I also have a mini challenge. Let's see who can make the smallest slide action pistol with a magazine!Also for anyone wanting to build the Mini TDS visit https://www.instructables.com/id/the-dunkinis-mini-tds/Thanks knexsuperbulderfreak!

I have always thought that a localist, complete democracy with communist economic system was superior. The countries' sizes would be similar to counties in the USA (30-40 miles across), because every area is different and requires different laws. Every human of age would have one vote in all matters. A number of people would be hired, like congressmen, to vote on trivial things that the rest of the population doesn't care to vote on, but members of that group would have no more say-so than anyone else. Laws would be written up by lawyers commissioned by citizens, and would be added to the next ballot if a predetermined number of signatures was obtained petitioning for it. Instead of buying things with money and being paid for work, workers would be given cards (like Drivers' Licenses) that allow them an amount of food and luxuries. In order to ensure that people do all the jobs that need to be done, a sliding pay scale would exist. Job categories would be ranked in importance by periodic votes, and ranked in terms of positions filled by computer (if there are not enough farmers practicing, the ranking for farmers would go up). Votes to determine importance of jobs would be done by occupations as wholes (farming would get one vote, clerks would get on vote, etc. in order to prevent jobs with the most people from voting themselves most important) In this system, the most important jobs that have the lowest worker-to-necessary-worker ratio would get 50% more luxury entitlements than people with the least-important, most-practiced jobs. Every worker would get the same amount of food, based on number of dependents. People who could not work due to temporary or permanent disability would be given a special card that allows food, and fewer luxuries than full-time workers, and would need to be renewed periodically, to be sure that holders actually cannot work. People who have lost their jobs would be issued a temporary unemployment card that allows them food and few luxuries while they look for a job. They must demonstrate that they have been looking for a job to the best of their ability to keep their card. Students would be allowed food and the smallest amount of luxuries, and their education would be free. Standards for workers would be determined by popular vote. While each country would only be county-sized so that it can do what is best for itself, all the countries would be part of a United Nations style meeting that mediates to prevent war and puts regulations across all the countries. So, what do y'all think the best way is? Please be wordy.

A couple of days ago I had a "Best Answer" to a question regarding suspending a kayak from a ceiling. Today I find that BA was removed from my total along with the author's response. It also seems that the question has been removed from the Answers section. Can questions or Best Answer ratings be deleted by the author?

I need to driver (5) 1watt white LEDs (forward voltage of 3.2~3.5v) and current of 350mA. I guess the best way would be to connect them all in series and somehow give them power. This is meant to be powered off of the wall socket (whether through SMPS or a capacitor or a resistor or a transformer or anything.). My question is what's the best way to drive them? I've never really used high power LEDs before. I'd also prefer to be able to adjust the brightness...

Please forgive me if this topic has already been discussed in the forums. With the holidays up and coming, it seemed like a potentially good time to look into getting some magazines for monthly reading material. That said, what are your favorite (and least favorite) magazines? --Purduecer

What are the best online stores out there? most reliable? fastest shipping? cheapest shipping?Of the ones listed below which are most trustworthy?bwayphoto.combhphotovideo.combeachcamera.comsoniccameras.com via pricingdepot.cometc.i'm trying to buy the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and am curious which is bestmy favorite deal was on bwayphoto, but after reading reviews of the site, i've become really skeptical. They have my camera on sale at $597 for the body and TWO lenses, but i am unsure whether it would be wise to buy from them. The lenses are the stock lense and a 75-300mm zoom whcih i think would be a GREAT deal. Should i try them and try to get through the sales pitch?Pricing depot shows that sonic camera sells the body for only $319 but eh, who knows?the reviews seemed okay. similar to those of bway, but more reliable. (they had a sales pitch, phone confirmation, etc.)b and h seems incredibly reliable, but the prices aren't amazingly low like the others. ( i guess that shows it's trustworthiness?)beachcamera i never really looked over, i just heard it was good. so, what do you think?

Here are the rules. The sniper must be your own and it must be rated over 3. They will be judged on range, pierceing, accuracy, and amount of pieces. I will need a judge or two for each.
