I am from Serbia and I have some great ideas for some current contest but in the terms of use is unfortunately mentioned that only several countries can participate. Can you please add Serbia before the end of current contests?

Starting a country...?

Okay, basic rundown: I've always wanted to start a country, and have gone from varying degrees of seriousness on the topic (from declaring my bedroom the kingdom of shirts to writing a constitution for Travisland [seriously]) Now, obviously there are several issues as to the actual seceding process. I'm in Canada, and I am currently researching how Canada gradually broke off from England, and I am planning to apply the same concept. Does anyone want to help with the research of building a constitution, border laws, etc? Assuming it actually works, you will get a passport, likely a government position (or something to that degree) and will be able to come and go from the country at any time (although if it does work we legally need permanent residences). Is anyone interested, even if all we get out of this is some education?

Nationality Group

Hi guys, Obviously i am a member of instructables that is why i am able to post in the forum. I am Nigerian and i live in Nigeria. The reason i am making this post, is because i want to be sure i am not alone. It would be nice if Instructables can create a nationality database, this way people from the same country can  connect, relate and partner for projects. But, until then if you are an active instructor from Nigeria, say Hi. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

International entries on Forbes Teach Me Fast Contest

In teh official rules it says "This contest is limited to legal residents of the United States and Canada", but at the mainpage (https://www.instructables.com/contest/forbes30seconds/) it says "International entries are OK.".I live in Finland and I'd like to know, can I enter this contest (and if I win, would that prize be shipped here). I believe there are many other users who are thinking about this same thing.

US and Canada Contests

I'm fed up I cant enter some contests like the 30-second video contest just because I'm not resident of the US nor Canada. I live in Spain, and when I see a contest I like, it says its only for US and Canada residents. I understand that its easier for Instructables to send the price withing America, but the sending taxes are not so high for them to be a reason of not sending the price. While I was reading the contest rules for the 30-second video I had ideas for 4 different entries. But I'm not going to bother doing them if I'm going to be thrown out of the contest the first day because of my nationality. I think contests should be something international, where everyone could win. That is the spirit of this new era, the internet era. With sites as this one, youtube, facebook, one can really feel as part of the international comunity, where every one, no matter age or race, can be someone. But of course, this "feeling"· of being part of something bigger end by the moment one reads "This contest is limited to legal residents of the United States and Canada, age 18 or older at the time of entry." (I understand the age problem for legal reasons). So, I ask to the team of Instructables to be considerant and to think of all the people living outside the US and Canada that could have a good idea or ideas for any kind of contest. Thanks for all Juanviperea.

Crafting Contest Country Eligibility

I saw there was a new contest, so went to investigate. I'm from the uk so always look at the eligibility at the bottom of the right hand side. This one said US only, but when I looked at the full rules, it listed all the usual places. See snapshot. Am I reading this wrong, or does one override the other? Can I enter? Thanks, Jon.

Countries allowed to participate contests

Contest rules says: "THE CONTEST IS OPEN ONLY TO NATURAL PERSONS WHO, AT THE TIME OF ENTRY, ARE REGISTERED MEMBERS OF THE SITE, WHO ARE AT LEAST FOURTEEN (14) YEARS OLD (FIFTEEN [15] YEARS OLD FOR RESIDENTS OF NORWAY AND EIGHTEEN [18] YEARS OLD FOR RESIDENTS OF GERMANY), AND ARE LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE 50 UNITED STATES (INCLUDING THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA BUT EXCLUDING PUERTO RICO), CANADA (EXCLUDING THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC, CANADA), UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA, BELGIUM, CHINA, THE NETHERLANDS, COLOMBIA, DENMARK, GERMANY, INDIA, NORWAY, OR SWITZERLAND." So, I just want to ask, why citizens of Poland cannot participate to contests? I'm sure, there a lot Polish, who made something nice and would show his/her project in that way. Poland is in EU, NATO, it is not so bad country (until you live there, eh). Our politicians sucks, thats a fact, but there are a lot creative young people, let them show, what they can. Regards. p.

Speed up country contest eligibility? Answered

I contacted the lottery inspection agency here in Sweden, the agency in charge of all things lottery/contest etc. According to them there is no reason why Sweden should not be an eligible country for the contests. I sent the info, links and contact information to the Instructables support and service email addresses. Is this going to make a difference? Is it going to speed up the process? I mean, From what I could find the last time Instructables added a country to the contests was in 2012... Have they stopped adding countries? Do they just not care anymore?

Clarifying recipes by showing our country

Hello, I've noticed after perusing just a few candy Instructables that some confusion comes from the fact that Instructables is an awesomely international site. It seems like lots of comments come from all over the world with questions when brands and particularly obscure ingredients are mentioned. I wondered if showing what country people who comment live in, that those in the same country can especially help, and that it might make for interesting discussion to learn about our different food cultures and available ingredients. What do y'all think?

2007 High Country tour of sustainable Living

Hi all. So here I am on fall break. Two days of not going to classes. I decided to tell ya'll (I'm in the south, I'm allowed to say that) about this weekend.This weekend was a big weekend up here in the mountains, and ASU's Homecoming eclipsed some great stuff, let me tell ya'. Instead of going to the game I decided to go on the 2007 High Country Tour of Sustainable Living. It was amazing! let me fill you in on some of what happened.Friday evening I found out about this and decided I couldn't miss it. So I got up bright and early Saturday morning, put on my robot t-shirt, and headed out. People started arriving around 8 AM and kept coming until 8:45 when we were finishing up breakfast . We all piled onto a biodiesel fueled bus and started for our first destination. I had had my coffee so I was up for talking at 8:45 on a Saturday morning. Right away I met some neat people, and we talked about bio-fuel in general, Who Killed The Electric Car, and the Appropriate technologies department at the university. We pulled up to a farm to be greeted by Ned Trivette and a 65' tall wind turbine, back dropped by the beautiful mountain scenery. Grid-tied and nearly maintenance free, this turbine provides about about 10% of Ned's household power usage.After talking about wind power and how Ned's setup works we loaded up again and headed to the Kennedy residence out in Vilas. We made it as far as the road that turns off to go to their house. There was no way that bus was going to make it up the hill to the house, so we all got out and the few cars that were there started shuttling people up while others of us walked. I walked, and let me tell you, that hill is STEEP. We got to the house without any mishaps and learned about this high efficiency house. It was facing south so it can soak up the sun in the winter months and had deep overhangs to shade the house in the summer months. By far the coolest (pun intended) part of this house was the thermal radiant heating system. Panels on the roof heated the 750 gallon Carolina water stove, and from there the water was pumped throughout the house to the radiant heating system in all the floors. Highly efficient and fascinating. After this we headed off once again. Here's where our schedule got interesting, and everyone was helpfully flexible. We apparently decided to take a "short cut." Someone thought we could make it on this steep dirt road that we took. We did make it, but not before getting stuck a few times and running over a rock. pieces of the bus were falling off and smoke from the tires was going everywhere! Once we finally made it over the hill we didn't have much more trouble. Instead of going to lunch, like we were supposed to do, we went to the ASU Biodiesel research facility. This was the highlight of the tour for me. I learned so much related to my latest endeavor, biodiesel. (for some reason spell check doesn't like that word.) We met Jeremy Ferrell, the guy in charge of all of it. He showed us the process they use to make it, and discussed all the latest research. This facility is amazing! It's completely sustainable. They have solar panels so they're making as much power as they're using, and in their passive solar greenhouse they have a "living machine" to recycle their gray water. There were things (algae and the like) growing everywhere, and the same solar thermal system that we had seen earlier, to heat water. I'm actually going back there sometime in the next few weeks to pick Jeremy's brain about biodiesel "stuff." ASU Collaborative BioDiesel projectAfter this was over and I was dragged back onto the bus we finally went to get some lunch. We were starving.We went to the Hill/Mitchell Residence for lunch. This house was awesome. It was only about 1600 square feet and had a concrete slab between the two floors, to retain heat. They had the radiant heating as well. I didn't get any pictures of the inside of the house but it was at least as cool as the outside. They also had a great garden going. Over lunch we had a speaker who talked about green building, and a lot of what goes into it. (I don't remember his name, sorry!)Our last destination was the Marland residence. It stands up on a hill above the university, in direct sunlight. This house is incredibly energy efficient and quite pleasing to the eye. (it was purple). With very few electric lights in the house that need to be on in the daytime, most of the windows face the sun, with overhangs on the roof for shade in the summer. It also had a tank-less hot water heater, which I had never seen before. It's apparently very energy efficient. So that was this years tour! (or the good parts, at least.) apparently it happens every year, so I plan on going in the future. Let me know if you guys have any questions or comments, in case I got any of the info wrong or left some out. (a lot of this is from memory and the handout we got)Thanks for reading,-DMC
