Cautionary Tales - How not to do it!

We were discussing electric shocks in one of the threads and I thought it might be interesting to share some cautionary tales. I have had quite a few accidents, made (to many) stupid mistakes, and had some pretty near-misses in my life. I have also heard about and witnessed many happening to other people. Have you experienced any near-misses (or hits for that matter)? How about sharing your cautionary tale with the rest of us - it might just save someone from making the same mistake.

Missing Instructables :(

It hasn't been a month since I've posted my last ible and I won't be able to post ibles on a regular basis for the next few months, but I already miss instructables :( . I'm trying to concentrate on my studies for a while but I can't. I really wanted to participate in the Zombie contest (I'm a huge fan of 'walking dead!), but it takes time to collect the materials, make something, document it to post an ible, I hope there will be more Zombie contests in the future. Anyways, just wanted to say, I'm sure I'm not the only one and I would really appreciate any suggestion and consolation so that I can stop feeling sad about missing instructables and concentrate on my studies for some time. Can't wait till my exams are over!

Missing patches?

Reasonably sure there's something not right at hand here, I happened to notice that I have more burning question patches than I remember and I'm missing a newsletter patch on profile, not sure if that's all but I suspect that burning questions are taking over my whole profile... I happened to noticed this about the time I got a yummy cookie from fungus there...

What did I miss

So yeah, as you guys may have noticed, I wasn't around here for a year due to not having knex in that timespan. So my question is, what did I miss? Any big new ball machine builders? Any epic ball machines? New elements? Some totally alternative way of building (like Wipe Out changed the lifts forever)?

Missing part of prize

I won third place in the dyeing for color contest a few weeks ago. I filled out all of the paperwork instructables sent me and received 'most' of the prize. However when the box came, it was missing the 12 white cotton bandanas. I have messaged the contest manager, and service@instructables, but neither has returned my messages. What do I do to get the missing part of my prize?

"Recent" button missing

Hi As usual, every morning I start my Chrome browser with gmail and instructables tabs. This morning I was looking for the recent i'bles, to find out the "Recent" button is missing from the drop-down Explore menu. I suppose this is happening because of long i'bles titles in the Recent list. Most probably the "Explore" menu have a fixed dimension. Thanks, w.

missing contest banners

Hi, I noticed that the Halloween Draw & Paint It Contest with Sketchbook and the Halloween Photo Editing Contest with Pixlr  entries are missing contest vote banners on the Instructables.  Is this a new thing that we can only vote on the contest pages or a bug? I don't know if it is relevant, but I am using Windows 7 and Firefox 15.0.1.

MIss the Pro designation

I miss seeing who is pro and who isn't.  I think knowing how someone else is experiencing the site  makes a difference in responding to them.  And  I  am sometimes able to offer free pro memberships to people, but it's harder if I can't tell who already has one.  Just my 2 cents worth.....

Missing Rich Editor

So I just went to embed a video on one of my step-by-steps and couldn't find the "Embed" button. Actually, all of the rich editor features are gone. I get the same result with Chrome and Firefox. Is this a bug? Is the answer right under my nose? Do I have to be a PRO member to embed videos? Sorry if this is a re-post; I couldn't find any help in the forums.

Missing "Favorite" callback

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a missing feature (and hence this should became a suggestion), but if I'm not logged and I try to favorite an instructable, then the site will ask me to login. So far so good. But the callback on the instructable doesn't contain any information about the user action, and so it wasn't automatically favorited. I find this quite frustrating, since I'm not a big user and I'm usually not logged when I surf the site..

Rating filter missing

From the Knex section of the site, many members are dissapointed at the loss of the 'rating' filter. Instructable's rating system makes the very best stand out, due to not being based on percentage, and mow they are being shrouded in darkness. Could we please have the rating filter back?

I miss it here!

This is the first time I've logged on to Instructables in what seems like a really long time. I've just been really busy with school and practice so I haven't really had the opportunity to be on in a while. I was just wondering if anyone else went through periods where they were off the website for a while then came back?

'Missing Comment Text'

This seems like it should be a very simple bug, but it's also very frustrating, as I currently can't post a comment anywhere. I type something into a comment box, hit the Post button, and it pops up with 'Missing Comment Text'. I first tried as a reply to a comment on my own Instructable, and I double checked with a comment on my own, a comment on someone else's, and reply to a comment on someone else's, and nothing worked. I cannot post comments or replies anywhere. I think I ran into this problem a few months ago but it didn't bother me as much back then.  I am running Safari v.7 on OSX v.10.9 Just checked with google chrome; and it worked. In light of that, I'm guessing it's just something in Safari's Preferences that I don't know about. Anyway, let me know, because I'm sure this has happened to someone else before.

Mouse Mouse is Missing!

Mouse Mouse was last seen on tour with us at Austin's SXSW earlier this week. He made lots of friends at Dorkbot on Saturday, but someone walked off with him while we were setting up at Sunday's PopSci party! Did he go on walkabout, join a punk band, or leave with a cute female Mouse Mouse? We hope so, but suspect he was simply abducted and can't contact us for help. If you have any information, please let us know! No kidding, I only made one1 and would really like to have him back. Drop me a note if you've got any news on his whereabouts. We'll take him back, no questions asked.1Yes, I can and will make another, but it's my art project, and therefore unique. (You may know how to make more children, but still want to keep the ones you've made.)

'Tis the Season to be Missing...

.. fa lalalala la la la la! OK folks, I'm off to the wilds of Northern England in about 18 hours from the time of typing, spending Christmas with relatives who don't really grok modern technology, so my access to the inter tubes will be sporadic. Just in case I don't get online before then, I'd just like to wish you all the best for whichever version of the season you choose to celebrate.  Whether you are celebrating with family, friends, I wish you a relaxing time with your loved ones. If you are celebrating alone, I wish you a hug from a stranger and a phone call from a distant friend.  If they don't phone you, you should phone them, just to wish them a happy holiday, and to remind them that they are in your thoughts. The tree was posted on Laughing Squid. EDIT OK, so I didn't end up missing so much, but I will definitely be offline for the next 24+ hours. Happy Holliers, one and all!

ePub ebooks missing images

I upgraded my subscription to Pro this morning so I could take advantage of the ebooks.

Images missing from PDFs

All the images are there in my most recent Instructable, but when I look at the PDF (even if I customize it to have smaller images) about one third of all the images are missing. Is there any fix for this? Is it an image size or aspect ratio issue? I'm concerned about this because it reduces the usability of the Instructable.

A function missing from the site.

After patsowers started asking questions about the history of the site, it occurred to me that there is a function missing from the site - we cannot list the membership. It would be nice to be able to list the membership in the same way that we list the Instructables - sorted by date joined, alphabetically, even by average views or ratings. Just a thought for the next time The Management have a spare moment or three...
