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!

Idk why my question is missing and im really hoping for a quick answer on my problem and question.

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...

Photo captions

In my most recent ible. I had 19 pics with photo captions. Only 4 showed up with the captions. The rest nada. Why did my captions disappear . I have never had that happen before. Is this a bug or just my good luck?

What is happening to my questions and forums input. Answered

I published an ible 5/31 and only 4 out of 19 pics had the captions show up.  Posted a bug in forums about it and now it is gone. Posted a question about the forums disappearance and seems it is gone now as well. So this question is about all of these  mysterious happenings here on Instructabes.  What has happened to my posts and pic captions?

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.

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.)

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..

This is the first time I've logged on to Instructables in what seems like a really long time.

'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.

'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!

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...
