Hey Instructables! I like the "send to friends" feature at the publish step, but what I'd like even more is to be able to send publication notices to friends on instructables! Similar to collaborate, but without giving edit permission, as a way to push publication to friends with instructables usernames who aren't (yet) subscribers. Cheers! Keep up the good work! *

Recently a friend & I have worked out how to make a forum, so we have. Problem is, we have a lack of people who have joined to give constructive criticism! The website is www.wendol.myfreeforum.org, and my account is KryptoniCamel for any one that wants to ask any questions. Thanks everyone, Regards, Kryptonite.

A friend of mine is in the metals class at my school and he asked me for some ideas (since they can make whatever the want on this last project) on what his final project should be. He's thinking something like a trebuchet or something else that launches projectiles and causes pain (or just fun). It would be awesome if some of you had any ideas or instructables for his project. If you do, please tell me!

Long-time friend of Instructables James Powderly of GRL, FFFFFAT LAB and Throwies fame is currently reported to be held by the Chinese Government for over 24 hours without further word for planning a pro-Tibet LASER Tag event in Beijing. "James is proud to have been kicked out of the Synthetic Times new media art exhibition in Beijing because he wouldn't censor his little art project. James wonders why organizations like the MoMA, Parsons, Eyebeam, Ars Electronica and many other arts and cultural institutions around the world who claim to support free speech and expression would participate in a show like this. But they did! It was after being kicked to the curb by the show's curator that James connected with Students for a Free Tibet and decided he would go to China anyway and do what he though was right in support of Tibet, Taiwan, free speech and the people of China. James lives, if indeed he is alive, in the County of Kings, Brooklyn, and teaches at the Communication Design and Technology program at Parsons the New School for Design. I am James Powderly and I approve of this message."We wish the best to him and his family.This via Boing Boing.

I am a nice person; always have been with everyone around me. Me and a family member (distant) only know each other here, and making friends with the community is hard. Does anyone want to be friends? It's cool if you don't follow us or something, but it would be nice that some people have some notice to us. This goes for all other people on Instructables, so I hope anyone that reads this will give support to each other.

I was thinking that a 'friend' or 'watch' feature could be added to instructables. One that would allow you to click a button on a user's page and add them to a list that would send you an email once per day/hour/week that would tell you if they had posted new instructables. I think this feature would be very useful. This is just a thought, but I would love to hear other users' opinions on the matter.

I have a really cool friend, but every time I try to talk to someone else, she starts interrupting us and talking to me. Some of my other friends don't really like her, but I still want to be her friend. So, how do I get her to give me some space without hurting her feelings and losing her as a friend? And I have told her to let me finish my conversation with someone else, but every single other time she does it. Help!! And thank you all who can help!

I am very angry and kind of depressed now.....I have fallen out with a friend, and i am pissed off.( this is at dinnertime - on the school playground BTW)It all started when i called him ( stuart) something ( daddy's little wh*re) as a joke. I always tease him and he just puches me , and then we carry on as normal. But i realised i went too far then, ( it was un-intentional; like a spur of the moment how i always tease him). I aploigised twice then, but then he chased me - he is very fast and this time he had a very angry look on his face! I quickly ran in a cicle and then ran straight outa the school gates for dinner- to avoid beatings.When i returned to school on the same day, I tried to avoid him incase i get hit, but i couldn't since my best friend hangs out with him, and i wanted to talk to him. So when walked up i imediatly got chased off ( but i was able to say sorry twice again). So next break i walked up again, But i got pushed, then kicked very hard on my arse by stuart. Then i got chased again and got puched twice. I decide to avoid him and ,my other friend totally for the remaining lessons.(TODAY), I normally walk with him too school and back form school. So when morning came, i got ready and left the house. I spotted him ( stuart) behind me and decided to carry on walking - too see what he would do..... Once he caught up he walked off! ahead leaving me behind! ( I thought the guy would off cooled down by now). Once i caught up with him i said:" hello. Are you still in a mood with me?"Stuart: " fuck off , i don't wanna walk with you, so get lost"Me: " why man? please, i said sorry lots of times...come on!"stuart : " Fuck off "I just realised he was angry and then just carried on walking to school away from him. I avoided him for most of the day, until maths finished:I was walking with another friend on the playground, then i saw stuart with his 2 friends ( one of them is also my friend) walking the opposit direction towards me.:When we were pararllel he got out his hand and pushed me really hard!me: " what the fuck did you do that for? I didnt do nothin' to you! "He smirked, and then walked off saying nothing.I am really angry and depressed now. I didnt go back after dinnertime today. Cause I am that down.. :-(Ive said sorry countless of times and ment it but he wouldn't listen. He just gets ready to hit me.I can't even hang out with my other friends because half of my friends ( he hangs out with). So im worried if i go up to them he might start a fight wich i don't wanna do. He is the tallest in year 9 twice the size of me, and pretty big. ( i know it would be a un fair fight ida get beaten). And now i havn't got anyone to walk to school with , which sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know what to do?!?!?Personally i think he's acting childish. Ive apoligised lots and he won't listen. Thank you for reading this extreamally long post!!! Please Help with sensible advice.

Evening all, Following on from what Jessy has already said, I'd just like to weigh in with my own views on life at Instructables and the company's decisions to work in cahoots with Autodesk. I've been an Artist in Residence at Instructables now for two weeks, and they've been an amazing two weeks. The atmosphere in the lab is the sort of laid-back but productive work environment you can only find among people who really love what they do. They work, they play, they somehow produce an awesome, widely-loved website. And now it looks like a big, grown-up company has decided that the site's awesome too. As far as I can tell, that's a good thing. Everyone at the Instructables lab seems genuinely, if cautiously, optimistic about what the new regime will mean for the company. A bigger company can provide more resources, taking some of the load of the team's shoulders so they can introduce new features and more extravagant contests. At the lab, there haven't been any changes. Everyone's still doing the same jobs they were doing a week ago and, yes, yesterday afternoon we were still up on the same roof, shooting shaving cream at the same intern. All is as it should be. Instructables is run by a small tightly-knit team of makers, so I think there were a few concerns about how Autodesk might try to warp the company to fit it into a standard, corporate mold. So far, Autodesk has been doing a good job of putting those concerns to rest. The success of Instructables is deeply tied up with its staff being a flexible little troupe of amiable nutcases and the managers at Autodesk seem to appreciate that. They know as well as we all do that if they mess with the winning formula, they'll only screw things up. Instructables is built on its community (that's you, reading this) and the community won't put up with any changes that make the site a worse place to spend time. If they try to screw the site up, you lot will rebel. If they try to make us wear ties, Randy will rebel. Their plan seems to be to nurture and support the site with funds, people and expertise while interfering relatively little with how it actually runs. We've been over to the local Autodesk offices to meet up with some of their employees and they seemed like a bunch of overenthusiastic, slightly geeky maker types. Which is to say, they seemed just like the rest of the gang here at Instructables and, as far as I can tell, just like much of the Instructables community. They're people who like to make things. A lot of them have been using Instructables for years. As a company to work alongside, they seem like a good fit. It will be very interesting to see where the site goes from here, but my gut feeling is that it will keep on doing the same things it's always done, just more so. Hopefully that's something we can all look forward to.

I'm 11 and going to middle school soon. Me and me ex-bff are still friends but not really. Shes really nice and funny but we are way different. I know the differences but basicly it's cuz I hung out with other people to practice for the talent show. She's probably jelous and keeps making up rumors about me that EVERY BODY believes. Now i only have one friend. She's stealing all my friends and lies a lot, like I said about the rumors. Now the boy she likes is always taking her side and vice versa she's making up rumors about me and telling them to him, which he spreads on. So now i don't like him anymore...But as you can see from above that isn't the problem. If you think you can help please help. I talked to the counsler at my school but that didn't help much : /

Hello my name is Jazmin aka Dready Jazz. I've had an instructables account for a while but I just started making them myself. I really like it and I am working on more, I just had a couple of questions. How do you get more followers, my instructables are very good, They just haven't gotten over 200 views and I know they could, My other issue is that I really wanted to get feed back on them hardly at all.

Yes, I'm shamelessly promoting one of my friend's youtube channels, because I think his music is really cool. So here I have one of my friends from school who's dream is to become a professional rapper. He has already released an album with 5 tracks. I bought a copy from him and his songs turned out to be really cool. He recently made a Youtube channel, so I figured I'd promote it for him. Check out his music: www.youtube.com/user/LilSavageTV There are no swear words or explicit lyrics in his songs, in case you guys are worried about that sort of thing.

Can anyone provide a logical answer to the following, my friend is getting really weirded out. His speakers will make strange static noises, sometimes quiet, sometimes loud.

Topic by rogers236 | last reply
At this moment, I am awaiting for the doctor's office to open so I can give them another call. My back has been hurting me since the Friday before Labor Day weekend, and getting increasingly worse since. The insurance I have was only allowing for pain medication, and then finally approved an X-ray which, of course, did not show anything concerning my formerly herniated disks. I have been awaiting the insurance company's approval to get the MRI that will tell the doctor what is REALLY going on with my back. If this gets delayed until I am paralyzed, the insurance company will have to be held responsible, as it would be because of their delay. Since I am having difficulties even sitting here in front of the computer, I will keep this short. If I stop posting for a 24 hour period, you can assume I have gone to the hospital for an operation (which will not happen before they examine an MRI). I don't know what else to do......but at this point, the pain meds don't even work well enough to allow me to sleep. Just wanted to get an FYI out here, so you didn't worry if I do become unable to get to a computer for a few days or weeks. BTW: I will be going completely crazy without being able to get in here, you all are like my extended family. First update: MRI has been taken, but will hear nothing before Friday or perhaps *sigh* Monday. Second update: MRI showed a definitive bulge (herniation) pressing heavily against my spinal column. This time around, it will probably have to be removed and the bones fused to keep me going... UPDATE 2.491 - Supplemental Nothing will be accomplished during the weekend, as far as my back is concerned. At least we have found a reasonable combination of meds to keep the pain at bay until I get to see the Neurosurgeon (and hopefully, there will be no need to see the Oncologist). UPDATE 3 - : It is very early in the morning (5:16 am) and I can not sleep. I have to await the doctor's call hoping it will come before my pulmonary appointment ( C-pap refitting). And if not, hoping I can get a refill on the pain meds that have been just barely keeping the pain below the screaming all the time level. So I can tolerate the wait until I get to see the neurosurgeon. UPDATE 3.274 - supplemental: I will be out and about (different doc appts.) most of this morning and into the afternoon. I will check in as soon as I know something. UPDATE 4: I have an appointment to see the neurosurgeon's BUT it isn't for another 6 days or so. This is very aggravating that something this painful and this life-invasive (keeping me from work) can't be taken care of sooner. UPDATE 4.129 - Supplemental: A followup letter from the doctor informs me of another reason the pain is greater this time, then last time: I have two herniated discs. *sigh* The fun of aging just never ends, does it? UPDATE 5: The therapy IS helping relieve the pressure on the disc by supporting the spine through stronger muscles. I am getting relief finally, and should be back to work Nov. 6th, at the latest. UPDATE 6: I had a minor relapse on Oct. 30th, on the right hand side, but things seem to be back on track now again. Thank you all for your support ! Some information about what MAY be done next.
