I have subscribed to the newsletter for over a week and still have not received it.

I just went to check the Instructables newsletter, and realized that there seemed to be a bug in the naming for one of the featured Instructables (the homemade engagement ring mis-named optimus prime costume). Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this?

Question by vishalapr | last reply
I don't know if something's wrong with the newsletter or if my computer has just gone crazy. In an Instructables Newsletter that I got today (September 12, 2010) The instructable in the top right corner of it seems to be messed up. It shows a picture of a ring and says "Optimus Prime Costume." When clicked, it takes me here: https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/F9N/NR2Z/GDVZOEX6/F9NNR2ZGDVZOEX6.jpg. Is this just a goof or am I missing some kind of joke here?

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?

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. Maybe I'm getting the newsletters at both emails and gmail thinks they're spam..no clue. thanks P.s. This might be in the wrong forum section...sorry

In the instructables newsletters I receive, links for the initial Featured item work but all the other links in "Editors Picks" do not function. (It was working before?) I have Windows 10 64 bit. I am using Firefox 44.0.02 and Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 to read emails. To view the instructables that interest me I have to do a search on the website it is annoying. edmond

I receive the newsletter through Yahoo Mail and everything is OK. But this e-mail is redirected to Outlook, directly into my computer. In Outlook, only the first (main) link works. The rest doesn´t. This problem have already happened around a year ago.

Hey guys, I was wondering... Don't you get an achievement anymore for appearing in the newsletter? Because I was featured with my ible "how to make a ping pong ball gun" in yesterdays newsletter and haven't received any achievement for it. It always looked cool to have one of those achievements on my profile so that's why I ask. Regards, Michel

Am I the only one that has been getting the Instructables Newsletter only once-to-twice a week? I used to receive it everyday... I think it has been like this for the past ~2 weeks My other question is: Is the newsletter chosen automatically, By robot? Or by the Staff?

I have been getting the message: "The URL is not syntactically valid" for all the links in your e-mails since the January 24, 2013 newsletter. I was & am using Eudora 6.2.4 on a Mac mini OS 10.4.11. The links in the January 17, 2013 newsletter, & all previous newsletters, did & still do work just fine. What changed? Sincerely, ~ Wolfwerx ~

Is it only me or the links in the newsletter haven't been working later? This is what I get when I click on one: http://l.php/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fapp.streamsend.com%2Fc%2F17067689%2F443173%2FIr3Vszr%2FBfu4%3Fredirect_to%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.instructables.com%252Fid%252FMonkey-Brain-Cake%252F&h;=OAQGbxk8g&s;=1 And chrome kindly telling me that "Oops! Google Chrome could not find l.php". Is the problem on my side or on instructables' side?

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, - firstname.lastname@example.org, - email@example.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?

i have changed my email addy in my instructables account, but am still receiving the newsletter in my previous email and not getting it in my new email. it did stop coming to my previous email for a little while (as i may have unsubscribed it), but then recently started up again, yet am still not getting it in my new email. i'm not about to unsubscribe (again) my previous email thru the newsletter Update Profile / Unsubscribe link till i am recieving said same newsletter in my new email. what's the deal?

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.

Hi! Here in my country we do not mind about the halloween, so I think this kind of e-mail is a little boring (at least to people in other countries that don't celebrate the halloween). I'm really getting annoyed with these "halloween newsletters" every day at my inbox. I already searched how to unsubscribe from this especific newsletter but unfortunately without sucess. Thank you!

The newsletter that was sent out for thanksgiving ideas and recipes last week (22nd Nov), will there be achievement patches for it? I waited a while before posting in case someone just hadn't got around to sending them, but one never came. *sobs*

I am unable to access interesting topics from the newsletter directly. I get this message when I click on a link: "Due to the presence of characters known to be used in Cross Site Scripting attacks, access is forbidden. This web site does not allow Urls which might include embedded HTML tags." I am using a web mail (cox) and chrome. Your e-mail doesn't have a link on top for "if you can't see this in your browser", which would be nice as going to the home page doesn't show the current e-mail information. ie Sonic Screwdriver by MrTinkerer I've never seen the above warning before and it doesn't sound like one I want to see. ;-}

Hi... This is an open letter.. made with a new id which i will never use again.. i promise you that my sole intention is for instructible to be better. Lately it's been very difficult for me to follow the one rule "be nice policy"... I'm still trying very hard... It's been made very hard by the newsletter editor, or whoever's job it is to choose which instructible to feature.. It's like you just choose randomly (or is this the case???), some times it's such a ridiculous ible that i can't hold my self much longer.. I want to be nasty in the comments of the ible.. But it's not the ible's writer's fault.. S/he's just making and sharing what s/he wants and i wouldn't even open the ible if it wasn't featured!!! To me, featuring means that you think it's a really nice piece and everyone should have a look at it.. it's brilliant! it's new!! it's unique! A little screening should be done prior to featuring.. Featuring doesn't mean "hey guys.. look at these random pages and see what you think.. or whatever..." Some of the ible's that was featured lately that i dont think that everybody should see: "is my sweater blue?" i admit it's a funny one.. well written.. yet it's pointless! anticlimactic! i was expecting so much more only because it was featured. If i stumbled on it on my own, i wouldn't have put so much expectation and wont be too disappointed.. might even enjoy the joke.. it was 1st of march!!! Not april fools!!!!! "router hack" more like router 101.. or how to use your router.. look at all the breach in the be-nice-policy comments... I wont even comment there.. A few was a re-post of older ible, some even a only re-make (i dont want to say plagiarism), and few more i care to remember... Were they innovative? were they interesting? were they everyone-must-see material? subjectively i say NO, NO, and NO. But if i look at the other commenting on them, mostly breaching the be nice policy, i'm not alone! I'm seriously starting to see instructible newsletter to be more junk lately.. Not like before when i got excited everytime one arrives in my inbox.. now i'm like "meh.. gotta screen to these stuff again because someone didn't do his/her job properly"... Please do something about this.. I'm worried that instructible would spiral down into the abyss, becoming flamming troll land due to the domino effect from negative comments making others feeling negative and spreading like a virus.. If it happens, there's only one to blame: unscreened newsletter featuring undeserving ibles. So i say again: please.. please.. please.. Anonym

Hi, last time I clicked on a link in a newsletter I got a new browser tab with the article I clicked on - so far so good. But then an overlay appeared asking me to join up for the newsletter, which I obviously already have. Please consider marking the links in your newsletter with a flag, that a clicked link will suppress the newsletter overlay.

I have a problem with your last two newsletters. I can't scroll through the newsletter. The older newsletters do not have this problem. If I save the newsletter e-mail as an html page, I can scroll through it with the cursor keys, not with the mouse because there is no scrollbar... Maybe a CSS error?

Hello! My Instructable was featured in the April 7th newsletter under a modified name (Look for "Portable Rickroll") but I never received a newsletter patch! I know that this is kind of ego centric but could somebody see if I was supposed to get a patch? I really like patches! They are like achievements for Instructables.com! Many Thanks, -XtremD

I think I'm going mad. This afternoon (local dutch time) I got the I'bles newsletter. I'm sure of that, because it featured a bracelet by emilyvanleemput. So I dropped her a congrats-note. She never got the newsletter, and I can't find it anywhere. What went wrong?!

You must have changed something because this always worked before. Starting with the Feb 11 emailed Newsletter and also evident in todays, the link for the initial Featured item works but all the ones below in "Editors Picks" do not function. When mousing over the pictures, the link is displayed in Featured instructable, but not with the ones below. I am using the Microsoft Outlook to read emails. DGW

How does one go about signing up for the email newsletter now?
Topic by dgateley | last reply
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
