What Happened?

I was fascinated by batch programs at the time. It was about 2 months ago. I was copying the code for ScrewTheLotOfYou's Whack-a-Mole file when something I can't explain happened. After I saved the program as Whack.bat, I opened it up and... It was a Notepad program made with cmd type format. It even had a pointer that followed your mouse around! It was a small rectangle that was the opposite color as the thing you were highlighting. You could Open/Save programs and everything! I checked the code for it, but it was the code for Whack-a-Mole. I was mad a first because I couldn;t play the game, and didn't think much of it. Now, the game works perfectly and I'm mad because I can't get back to the Notepad program!

What would happen if you stopped a galaxies rotation?

I mean a total complete standstill, every dust particle and bit of matter stopped moving rotationally in relation to the galactic center. Would the gravitational effects drag everything to the center if it stopped rotating over a few million years or would everything fly off in a straight line if it stopped instantaneously and eventually fall back into the center?

What happened to Instructables?

I've been away a while, and now that I'm back, I see a lot of purported instructables that are nothing but slideshows of finished projects with no instructions, usually with links to other sites, most of which are selling the plans or instructions.  Has Instructables totally changed, or have I misunderstood what it's about all this time? :(

What happened to the spammers?

I noticed for a few days now that there is basically no spam showing up anymore.

Yes, there will be new spam attacks but right now I really like the clean look after a reload - no spam is always good :)

All the writing I did has been replaced by "give a general description of this step"! I hit "save now" every time I finished a sentence! What happened?!Excuse any errors right now, I'm shocked.

What happened to "Groups?"

What happened to Groups?They still exist--you can still add your instructable to a group.The only way I could search or explore Groups was to click "Groups" on my personal page, then on the "Join other Groups" link at the bottom of the page. I couldn't find another way in (other than the advanced Search function.)There doesn't seem to be a simple or straight-forward way to access them otherwise... I sure don't see a way to create a new one (not that a little weeding-out of the existing groups isn't called for.)Edit: Oh, wait, I see it--you can Submit a new group.But a lot of casual users probably aren't even aware they exist...

WTF JUST HAPPENED?!?!

I wanted to watch the video on this page, but I have dial-up (it would take forever to load, and I would have to be able to resume it because I wouldn't be able to download the whole thing in one sitting), so I got the link for the file in the HTML and downloaded it separately so I could resume it. I reinserted the local file link to the downloaded file into the HTML of the original page to see if I could get it to play in the "blip" video player.Well, it didn't quite work. And the results that I got almost made me shart my self (s**t and fart at the same time). A low-res 8 second video that displayed the words "are you afraid of the dark" while a camera went through tall grass (typical horror movie setting), with the sound of a heart beat in the background. Yes, it scared the hell out of me, although, after watching the movie in a very small screen so nothing in it would actually make me shart myself this time, I couldn't discern any objects or otherwise likely scary things.Yes, holy shat. What the blam just happened? Mind you this was a week ago.

We must keep the Allsteps preference!

The title says it all, Allsteps should be a benefit when we register, Now we are going being treated like dirt by the system! We are being removed of all the basic features! What do you think about this happening? Do you think it is fair? do you think it Should be done? And do you think madness will occur when it takes effect?

What happened to all the categories?

Just wondering what happened to a lot of the categories? When I used to come on this site there were a lot more, including the good 'ol section (forgot the name) dedicated to 'unrefined' projects (ie. constructing projectiles out of office supplies, constructing devices that could cause potential danger if misused, pyrotechnics, etc). Anyone know?

What Happened to the "Author Box'

There used to a "author box"(with the name of the author, date published, etc), on forum topics and questions.  What happened to it, it's kind of annoying, because every time I want to see who the author is, it isn't there. Does anyone else fine this annoying? P.S. sorry if someone else already made a topic on this, I looked and couldn't fine any. AI

What ever happened to NOT LIABLE?

Remember the old site that had a "cover page"? Before all of this flash stuff, there was a "Not Liable" section for supposedly dangerous Instructables. What ever happened to it? The majority of Instructables that I like would go in this category, and now it's a hassle to find them. I think the staff should bring back the Not Liable section, and automatically put a disclaimer at the beginning of any Instructable entered in the category.
