Date or No Date?

Okay so here's the story.  I've known this girl for about a little over a year. She's nice, but we barely talked last year. Now this year, we're talking more together during lunch. She dated this one guy who can be a jerk sometimes but sometimes is also cool (he's kinda my friend but sometimes when he acts like a jerk he's annoying).  2 weeks later she broke up with him. Now lately I've been talking with her, and we joined the same club. The First meeting, she hugged me TWICE. Then, we kept talking a bit more, talked during lunch about things we like, and when it was cold (waiting for the bus home), I gave HER a hug to keep her warm.  We chatted on the bus home, but now she won't sit near me anymore or talk to me. So this is what I'm asking.  You guys think she likes me, and you think I should make a move?

Publication Dates Changing

Over the past six weeks, I have tried to keep to my usual post schedule of Fridays. However, after posting, I have found that without fail the instructables' marked post dates rollback to 1-2 days prior to when they were actually posted and continuously read wrong thereafter. I can only guess what it might do for contest entries and the like.

Incorrect Publish Dates

I recently created several Instructables from some of my youtube tutorials, and was surprised to find that they didn't hit the "recent" list.  After some investigation I noticed that nearly all of them had a publish date of several days earlier than I actually published them which is causing them to show up so far down the recent list that they are unlikely to ever be seen.  Seems like they are all two days early.  Everyone of my published instructables listed as Nov 19, 2014 was actually published today Nov 21, 2014.  Infact the 19th even pre-dates the creation of some of the video content.

posting date on instructables

Is there any way of changing the posting date on an instructable? i was working on one and it's post date is when i started it rather than when i published it. or, is there a way to look at instructables by publishing date rather than posting date so that i can easily keep up with what is new?

Why is there no "posted on" date?

Hey in my instructable Smart-Distance-Measuring-Tape-v2, I dont see the "posted on" date. I worked hard on this instructable and it din't get featured, so I commented on the clinic, where Ben Finio informed me about it. I think that may be a glitch and could be the reason why my instructable did not get featured.

Scholarship dates change

I'm not official by any means, but I've been waiting like an impatient kid on Christmas morning for Saturday, which used to be the "notification by" date for the create scholarship contest. However, a look at the rules this morning says: "All submissions for this Scholarship sub-contest must be posted by June 30, 2007. No later than July 9th, 2007, scholarship winners will be notified by email." So they bumped the submission date back two days and gave themselves a week to think about it. I didn't see anything like this before, so I thought I'd let everyone else know (especially if you're like me and dying to know the results of the mini-contest.)

Expiration date of meds?

Finding a beautiful small oak cabinet, with beveled windows, full with a first aid box, some more first aid stuff, and several antibiotics etc. The first aid stuff is fine! The band aids still stick, etc. The antibiotics, and the fungicide expired during the millennium scare.... But then, people store meds in very different circumstances. The warnings are of course based on legal possibilities, like storage in a leaking cabinet on the south section of the mobile home in South Florida of a hyper allergenic patient..., generally not met in most circumstances! Of course many folks will say: DON'T USE IT!! VERY DANGEROUS, ETC.... But I'm sceptical...  Of course big pharma would love me to take it to hazardous waste tomorrow. OK, I don't need these meds.  But suppose someone very poor, like many of my friends in 3rd world countries, got a bad cut, etc. Over there, you have to pay upfront to see a doc, and pay again to get (very common) antibiotics. They phone me. My question: generally speaking, what is the value of expired meds... Would there be a danger, would significant toxic by products be generated, or is the issue mostly a gradual breakdown of the active compound... Which would mean, double dose... Almost everyone has unused meds in their cabinet. This question is very important and the proper answers could result in saving many lives!

Contest eligibility by date

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I would like to propose a change to contest rules. I'm proposing that the eligibility requirement to enter contests be changed to allow any instructable published within a specified time period (one week, one month, etc) before the contest opens. I know the point of limiting the eligibility is to keep fresh material flowing through the door by keeping old 'ibles from being entered over and over, but this is the second time that I've published an instructable, and then a few days later a contest opens that I'm not eligible to enter. This time, the contest in question is https://www.instructables.com/contest/fixit2014/ which opened on Sept 1. I wanted to enter this 'ible (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Disassemble-A-Keyless-Drill-Chuck/) which I published on Aug 29...but it's not eligible because it was published before the contest opened.  I know there's a list of upcoming contests, but the point of this site is to share your projects, not to withhold them until a contest rolls around that you may want to enter. I try to contribute as much as possible, so far publishing 18 instructables in the last 10 months. Seven of those were featured. While I doubt that I'll win any of the contests, it's frustrating not even getting a chance to enter....so, if there's a way this change could be considered, that'd be great - otherwise I'll live with it. Like I said, I doubt I'd win any contests anyway. Thanks for reading my rant.

No posting dates listed on Instructables?

Looking at some current Instructables in various categories, I don't see any posting dates listed on the project pages. When did this start? Is there a secret way to learn the date? One of my biggest peeves on the web is press releases (or worse -- news stories) posted without a date -- one of the most important pieces of information! (the five W's of journalism, etc.). Or is this just a Chrome issue?

Anyways i asked her out on a date to the movies on 13 FEB and she said sure. My question is I can get chocolate real cheep from work (at cost) should I give her a box of chocolate or will that be too romantic. Valentines day is on the 14th and I dont want to be too romantic, incase she turned into a psycho. What would be an appropriate gift (if any) to give someone that you havent seen in 6 years.?

How do I figure out if this really passive guy likes me without outright asking him?

I really kind of like this guy in my French class and we text most nights when neither of us are working and usually we're joking... but in real life he's so passive most of the time, and other times he's sarcastic, and it's all underlined with this antisocial facade. Except we all know he likes to be around people. He likes to hear his own voice. But these are weird things that I like. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any advice about how to tell if he likes me back? It's confusing, because he acts like it somedays, not so much others...

Date of my Ible got changed

I uploaded an instructable today (12 October), and for the first bit (at most an hour) it showed on page 1 of recent. Then a few hours later when I looked, it was at page 4 and the date suddenly was 9 October. It isn't a big instructable, so I won't lose anything from it, but I am wondering how such a thing could happen. One day I can understand, with timezones and everything, but 3 days seems a bit odd. It doesn't seem like this is supposed to happen. The instructable in question is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Capacitive-Fluid-Level-Sensor/

The Most Romantic thing i can do to get a her for a date?

How you doing peeps? Ok there is this GIRL who lives in my Road, lives at number 4 i live at number 34. This might sound like i am exagarating here but this girl is more beautiful than Megan fox what? yea you heard me she is beautiful i thought she was a model( part time should i say) but she is just a beautiful college girl. The first time i saw this girl was like 2-3 years ago when she was walking every male in the town was stopping and looking at her she took the attention of the whole shopping mall. When i saw i knew one day we were gonna meet again. So after two years she just moved in my street, i couldn't believe when i saw her i again i was at the traffic lights i was well dressed i made eye contact with her and she smiled back i was wit my young sis coming bk from taking her School. The next time i met her was in the club with her friends that time she was not well dressed in the club but any way she saw me smile again and she was with her three friends, suddenly she stopped in the club kept looking at me while she was looking at me i was whipering like at my friend's ear and like she saw i was talking about her and she started doing some sexy dance infront of me while i was looking into her eyes. After there was this latvian man came and took her i think it was her relative not bf cos she ain't got one. The next Day going to work i saw her again she was dressed very sexy with leather pants and white top ooo that was sexy, same thing happened again smiling agin looking in my eyes. The problem is this girl is mysterious you know what i mean its rare to see her around or even see her. And a lot of guys want her don't have the confidents to approach her. She is always in the house and working. Notice she does not know my name and i don't know hersShould i do thisShould i send some flowers at her house asking her out?What would you do in this situation? i want the most romantic idea i can do, how can explain this? i want her to get the feeling of - i have to know this/ who this guy is. Something she won't resistOk peeps gimme ideas!!!!!!

Bug -- editing an I'ble changes the publication date

I just noticed that editing an existing, and already published, Instructable changes the publication date to the date of last edit.  That was not true in the past, and I am fairly sure it is not the behaviour intended by the Instructables staff.  It has, as you can guess, several unexpected side effects, some of which circumvent established policies and rules.
