No newsletter

Last week, I haven't received a newsletter. I got the one on 8-7, but that was the last one. Looking at the collections on the homepage, tells me there's also one from 10-7, but I haven't got it.

Email newsletter not displaying images

The last few email newsletters I received are not showing images. Prior to maybe a month or so ago this was never an issue. I'm on Windows XP service pack 3, using Outlook 2003, my internet browser is Firefox 47.0.1 but the problem is email related. In the latest newsletter, one image actually does display. And 3 link buttons at the bottom displayed - everything else has the dreaded red X instead of the images. Screen captures below.

email images not displaying

I'm not getting images in my Instructables newsletter emails. Almost all of them are broken except for the We're Hiring graphic. The links in the image placeholders work. But without the images I'm not inspired, so I don't bother to click and follow the link. I have no problem with any other emails from other websites. I'm using Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista. (Please don't suggest using a different email program.) I've added Instructables to my "Safe Sender" list and "Safe Domain" list. What's going on?

Email newsletter relevancy

Recently the email newsletters are becoming less and less relevant. When I first agreed to start receiving them, they seemed great. I saw great instructables and a lot of good stuff. Now the featured 'ibles are all above my crafting skills and are expensive to boot, requiring 3D printers, expensive materials, and machinery that I don't have. While they're great instructables, they make me sigh and check the delete button on the email instead of clicking through to the site to view something I could actually do. I like the featured 'ibles usually, and this might just be me whining because I don't have the resources many on this site do have, but lately I've wanted to unsubscribe from newsletters - which would mean I would only venture to this site when I actually needed to do a diy project. No more neat ideas to be in awe of for their awesomeness - just complicated ones that are beyond me.  Maybe the newsletters could have more varied 'ibles? More simple ones and less "3D/wood/metal/arduino" ones? A balance would be nice.

Newsletter {help}

Hi, I changed emails about a month or 2 ago. I did change my instructable newsletter email to the new one, but for some reason I'm not getting them. It's weird, the newsletters and my password requests are being sent to my old email even tho I changed it in my personal settings. If it helps, my old email was Yahoo! And I switched to Gmail.

Subscription Email

I love this website and enjoy my weekly newsletter of new Instructables. Originally, I had them going to my spam-catcher email (I do that when I sign up for something new), but want it to come to my regular email now. My main account settings now has my regular email address, but the newsletter still went to the old one. Private messages and comment updates go to the new email just fine. Finally, I turned off the subscriptions to that old email address. Oops... Now I don't get the weekly at all! I tried to find where to subscribe to the newsletter and all I get is a page that is essentially for new accounts: it wants a NEW address and won't accept my current email address, saying it's already in use. Well no kidding! It's my email address and that's where I want the newsletter to go!!! So how the heck do I subscribe to the weekly newsletter using my current account settings' regular email address?

Images?

Sorry for a new thread, but I was not able (allowed?) to add comments to any of the existing threads. I pushed the buttons but nothing happened. Anyway, here's the deal. I've seen several comments that the original plan to only show "secondary images" to pro accounts has been reversed, and that now all accounts will be able to view all images. I guess that depends on your definition of "view". Currently I can only view thumbnails of ANY images -- I have no idea what you mean by "secondary" images. Even instructables I looked at two days ago now have no large (useful) images. What gives? It's bad enough that I no longer can save the PDFs, but this make the whole site worthless. I'm ready to drop my membership and stop being a fan on facebook, because as of yesterday your posts and emails are spam to me.

Newsletter not working...

I have 2 emails and I usually recieve my newsletter in my hotmail and I also have my gmail acct. Where I also would like to receive it. For the last month, every time i receive the newsletter in my hotmail I sign up on my gmail with a "Your email has been added!" confirmation message, but at the end nothing happens. After all this time I still receive the newsletter only on my hotmail only. I've tried everything I could think of: to change the subscription at the bottom of the newsletter I recieve in hotmail (but it lets you change everything but the email itself, so...), I changed the email associated to my Instructables acct. I checked for junk mail, but it's useless... Im not receiving the newsletter on my gmail at all. Can you please help me?

New email newsletter format

I put this in "forums" and "Burning Questions" but I don't know if that's where it should go. Anyway, it's just a point of feedback about the new format in the weekly email newsletter: I don't care for it much. I liked the previous format where there were a dozen (? I think?) featured projects, and the contests listed at the bottom. This new format with only three or four projects, with big photos, is disappointing. I don't come visit the site itself nearly as often now. I did go in and change my preferences for categories, but it seems the newsletter is locked onto certain categories regardless what I signed up for. I much prefer having more featured projects to peruse, and most weeks one or more of them would get me to the site, and I'd spend more time after viewing the one, viewing more.  Just my one opinion.  threeoutside

Reveived three copies of a newsletter

Hi guys, I very much enjoy the regular updates of instructables through the newsletters I receive by email. However, upon receiving the same one for the third time today I was wondering if there is any major work being done behind the scenes or whether I stumbled upon a bug, and I though it would be a good idea to submit a bugreport. Hence, this topic. I have attached a small screenshot of my gmail account. (Leaving out the standard layout due to privacy and general negligability..) Of course, I would be more than happy to forward the series of messages to an address if requested. Likewise, I can give my email address when necessary in some private message. The emails all source from < newsletter@m1.instructables.com >. I run a windows7, ubuntu dual boot and browse in chrome (version 36.0.1985.125) but these stats seem to be irrelevant as the mail server does not directly interact with them :-) PS. I also came accross a java error, but did not have the presence of mind to take a screenshot of the stack trace. It was after resetting my pasword, logging in for the first time and then browsing to the forums through the main navigation from the homepage. (This probably is not detailed enough to get anywhere, but it perhaps plants a seed of intuition in the programmer that reads it which might help when someone else makes another report ^_^), In the glance I had at it, it seemed to concern reflection and the loading of the content page, which recursed once before reaching the error. (In the sence that in the content view, a complete version of the main navigation was included, yielding a somewhat smaller header identical in shape and function to the top-level one)

Links Don't Do Anything in Emailed Newsletter

I received the emailed newsletter, Giant Swiss Army Machete, Box Fan Mosquito Trap, 2-Liter Rocket, and found that some of the links don't do anything when you click on them. I tried the newsletter in two separate email clients. If you hover mouse over those alleged links, the pointer turns into an I-beam. Windows 7 pro, outlook office 2010, gmail. The following links don't work: 1.  All captions under each instructable project image. 2.  "All Contests >>" button. 3.  "See All Featured >>" button. 4.  "Customize Feed >>" button. 5.  "Browse Contests >>" button. Workarounds: *  For the captions under the images, click on the image instead. *  For the buttons, go to the Instructables site main page and find the items in the header.

Weird email!

I want to express my discontempt for a message I just recieved: it says that a good instructable must follow the following criteria: NOTE: I have only published 1 instructable, titled Chrono-SOCCER! - details a finished project with instruction (not just links to instructions) - has clear images that you took of your project (web-found clip-art is not acceptable) - uses proper spelling and grammar - contains appropriate cautions or safety considerations - does not violate someone else's copyright - does not violate the Instructables terms of service - is typically written about something you are very passionate about and want to share. This is what I think: 1.- I put in put in the whole instructions (I don't even know how to put a link) 2.- I DO NOT own a digital camera; I put a table instead 3.- I apologized beforehand of being Mexican and perhaps making some spelling mistakes. 4.- This instructable shows how to play with a watch, not dangerous by the way 5.- This game is of public domain here in Mexico; like paper-rock-scissors in USA 6.- Believe it or not, I DO like reading the "small letters" and it does NOT violate the TOS or otherwise invite people to do so 7.- Obviously I like the theme or I wouldn't have published it thanks for reading this and I hope someone can do something about this because they are just sending pre done e mails!

Newsletter - How to unsubscribe?

Hello, I want to unsubscribe from the instructables newsletter. Normally in case of virtually any other organization, apart from the most scummy ones, I would just click on the link somewhere at the bottom of an email and had it sorted in a second but instructables seem to make it especially difficult to unsubscribe. Perhaps I need an instructable for this too. So far I sent messages with a request to unsubscribe to the following: - reply-to address of the newsletter, - service@instructables.com, - support@instructables.com, - and also disabled all email alerts in the settings. None of that had any effect, what a PITA. What else can I do apart from filing a complaint to the ICO?

Crazy behavior when clicking from email

I'm surprised that no one else has reported this, because it's pretty severe. Whenever I click a link from your email newsletter, the page never stops reloading. Everything works fine when I've called it up directly from instructables.com, but when I click a link or image from the newsletter, everything bounces around and it never stops. Clicking the stop ("X") in Chrome doesn't help, because then the page is only partially loaded and none of the javascript works. I'm on Chrome, up to date at current release, Windows XP at final release; email is gmail. I don't think I can provide a screen dump that captures the, um, dynamic nature of the problem--like I said, the page just never quits jumping. The first time I noticed it was within the last few weeks, not sure exactly, but at first I thought it was a fluke. Since that time, it has happened every time.
