Problem with newsletter

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?

Problem with the Instructables Newsletter?

Is there a reason why my project: "SpectrumLED- An INSANELY Bright 200 WATT Variable Spectrum LED Panel" was featured in the newsletter as: "Insanely Bright LED Panel"? Is it because the name is too long? Or something else?

Instructables Newsletter Problems...

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?

Does my pc have a virus or is the instructables email newsletter infected??

 When I click on some items in the most recent two instructables email newsletters I get directed to pages for all sorts of spammy websites. Such as "Your computer is infected with a virus! click here to run a free virus check now" etc etc all sorts of junk.This only happens with the instructable email newsletter. Anyone know about this or what to do?

Problems Changing Account Email

So I am changing my email and I found the place to change it under edit profile, but I no longer receive the weekly email of featured Instructables and contests, which sucks because it is one of the few emails I look forward to getting. Is there somewhere to resubscribe to it or something? I have double and triple checked and my account now has my new, correct email listed. Thanks, J.

Newsletter link fail

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.

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!

no possibility to scroll down in the last two newsletters.

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?

Can't open newsletter

I'm having a very strange problem with the Instructables newsletter. Starting a month or two ago, the newsletter arrives in my inbox (I use webmail from my ISP, Shaw Cable), but I am unable to open the message. Normally I just click on the message and it opens, but when I click on the Instructables message nothing visible happens.I normally use Firefox 3. Today I tried it using IE 8 and got a message saying that some of the content would be delivered using a non https connection, blah blah blah. I said go ahead anyway, and the message opened, but none of the images displayed.So, it appears to be related to some setting in Firefox, or perhaps some javascript thing that works in IE but not firefox, but I can't figure it out. Can you give me any tips that might help me get it working in Firefox?Thanks,Steve

Email newsletter not displaying images

The last few email newsletters I received are not showing images. Prior to maybe a month or so ago this was never an issue. I'm on Windows XP service pack 3, using Outlook 2003, my internet browser is Firefox 47.0.1 but the problem is email related. In the latest newsletter, one image actually does display. And 3 link buttons at the bottom displayed - everything else has the dreaded red X instead of the images. Screen captures below.

The instructable newsletter via e-mail on Windows 7 with Windows live mail - no images, no links.

The instructable newsletter via e-mail works fine on Apple Mail on my Macs, but not on Windows 7 with Windows live mail - no images, no links.  What can I do to fix that?  I  have checked all the preferences (settings) and can't seem to find the problem.  No error message pops up, either.  I like using our little Toshiba Netbook to check my mail, and the Instructables e-mail is the only one that gives a problem. Actually, an error message does show up if I click on one of the links.  The link itself looks like this when I copy it to the clipboard: wlmailhtml:{9A62DA93-D7CD-479C-B7FD-C98967C8DBC0}mid://00001245/!x-usc:http://app.streamsend.com/c/16911231/440809/C7COdCu/Bfu4?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.instructables.com%2Fid%2FRepairing-Split-Wood%2F Any help given would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Can't click links in email newsletter

When clicking the links in the email newsletter, nothing happens.  No error message.  The only areas in the email that Outlook recognizes as "clickable" (i.e. where the pointer turns into a hand) are the arrow icons, but nothing happens when clicked I don't have this same problem with other emails.  My email client is Outlook 2013 on Windows 7 x64 and my default browser is the latest version of Firefox.  If I click "view in browser", it seems to work, but that opens the email in Internet Explorer.

Annoyng old bug

Hi, I really need some help with this bug. The problem is a strange one: my profile is not up to date (it doesn't show my instructables or my profile picture), and I don't get notified when someone I'm following publishes a new ible'. Also it doesn't matter which computer I use or from where I'm viewing my profile I still encounter the same thing. I guess that the site mistakes me for someone else that joined in June 3 2007 with the name macgyver. Should I change my user name? Thank you!

So why does the newsletter (28/03/10) have "old" ible's?

So I presume many of you who frequent the instructables site are all signed in to the newsletter. Now maybe you have noticed anything about the newsletter you got today but I have! And that is that the newsletter doesn't have any new ible's! I have been noticing that it has happend before so when I got the latest newsletter (28/03/10) I decided to investigate if I was right. I clicked on every ible that was in the newsletter and noticed that none of these ibles were created  in 2010! All the ibles were dated from December 2006 to december 2009! So my question is, why? I know there were some good ibles since the last newsletter. And many new ibles got featured every day! I have searched for some examples I find newsletter worthy and I would definitly go to the site if I saw these and didn't know them before: www.instructables.com/id/Pallet-Adirondack-Chair/ www.instructables.com/id/DIY-R2D2-Lamp-from-10-IKEA-lamp/ www.instructables.com/id/Red-Oak-Pyramid-Bow/ www.instructables.com/id/Leather-Steampunk-Top-Hat/ Just some examples from the top of my hat. I've been going through my emails and I noticed you send a newsletter the 25th (25/03/10) that did have alot of new ibles. So what is the problem? Did robot screw up the newsletter list or is there some sort of cycle going on? (first one with fresh ibles then one with old ones some people may not have found yet). I think you guys do great work keeping this site up and running and dealing with our problems so to make things clear this isn't hostile or anything. I was just wondering why you suddenly send a newsletter with old ibles when there are so many new good ones?

OPENDNS is blocking access to streamsend links in your mailings

The OPENDNS DNS lookup and anti-phishing service I've used for the last few years has suddenly  decided that the streamsend redirected links in the Instructables weekly newsletters are an attempt at phishing.  I am able to access the instructables web site directly, but I can't follow links from your emails any more. I receive the weekly newsletter through Yahoo email. My older Instructables newsletters that I was previously able to read are having their streamsend links blocked too. This is a problem between streamsend and OPENDNS.  However, Instructables is affected by this if they're a customer of streamsend.

Pros and viruses

Fellow-pro-members, I have been seeing a lot of complaints about viruses / redirection etc. in the last couple of weeks. It may be my imagination, but most / all seem to be from non-pro members. Are pro members getting these problems (especially if you click through from the newsletter)? I haven't seen any of the problems (running FF in Wondows, with Norton installed and up-to-date).

Malware warnings from Google Chrome

Sirs, I'm using Chrome & was checking aol mail.

They stated they had contacted Instructables concerning the problem but advised staying away for a few day's. I went to Gmail account & signed in with no trouble (I Hope!).

Crazy behavior when clicking from email

I'm surprised that no one else has reported this, because it's pretty severe. Whenever I click a link from your email newsletter, the page never stops reloading. Everything works fine when I've called it up directly from instructables.com, but when I click a link or image from the newsletter, everything bounces around and it never stops. Clicking the stop ("X") in Chrome doesn't help, because then the page is only partially loaded and none of the javascript works. I'm on Chrome, up to date at current release, Windows XP at final release; email is gmail. I don't think I can provide a screen dump that captures the, um, dynamic nature of the problem--like I said, the page just never quits jumping. The first time I noticed it was within the last few weeks, not sure exactly, but at first I thought it was a fluke. Since that time, it has happened every time.

INSTRUCTABLE COMMUNITY! see if one of your instructables can help someone in a developing nation. Building for a good cause!

I saw this website called honeybee, Anyone who likes to solve problems using everyday things or inventing new things. Check this out This is a list of problems people have in developing nations they need help building constructing and recycling tools and machines to help them in there everyday lives, I have read them and i think the inscrutable community could really help there cause. take a look see if you made something that they need. http://www.sristi.org/hbnew/seeking_solution.php video about it http://www.ted.com/talks/anil_gupta_india_s_hidden_hotbeds_of_invention.html here's there about us   WHO ARE WE? Honey Bee Network is a crucible of like-minded individuals, innovators, farmers, scholars, academicians, policy makers, entrepreneurs and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). A Network having presence in more than seventy five countries, what has made Honey Bee Network tight knit and efficiently functional is its philosophy. Honey Bee signifies a philosophy of discourse, which is authentic, accountable and fair. The Network has been woven around three basic ideals. The Network believes that a knowledge system in order to become sustainable has to be both just and fair. Hence, while collecting knowledge from the knowledge holder, the Network has made it a norm to acknowledge the knowledge provider with name and reference, if otherwise not desired by the knowledge provider. This particular practice has come handy in protecting the IPR of the knowledge provider. In the second place, the source of knowledge i.e. in the case of Honey Bee Network, the traditional knowledge holders and grassroots innovators must be acknowledged, if otherwise desired so by the knowledge holders themselves. Finally, any proceed that accrues from the value addition of local traditional knowledge and innovation; a fair and reasonable share must go back to the knowledge holders. These have been the guiding principles of the Network, which are fundamental to the functioning of the network and constitute the major non-negotiable for the Network. WHAT ARE WE DOING? Over the last sixteen years or so, the Honey Bee Network has lived the very spirit of the philosophy that it holds so dearly. Moreover, the actions that have followed the philosophy have grown and matured over a period of time and their trajectory of maturation has been based upon the strong realization of the essence of the philosophy. ‘Honey Bee’ Newsletter, the creative mouthpiece of the network, is published in seven Indian languages (Hindi, Gujarati, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Oriya) other than English. The very logic tells that any documentation and dissemination of local and traditional knowledge and innovations in English, certainly connects us globally but alienates locally. Living out the concern, the regional language versions reach out to the thousands grassroots knowledge holders, who otherwise would have been alienated from the benefits of knowledge, they themselves contribute in the first place. Acknowledging the very source of the traditional knowledge, the Honey Bee Newsletter and its regional versions carry stories of the local ingenuity with the consent of the knowledge holder. Another source of acknowledging the local genius has been preparing the database of the traditional knowledge and grassroots innovations and Honey Bee Network, over the last twenty years has documented more than 1,00,000 ideas, innovations and traditional knowledge practices. Honey Bee, true to its metaphor, has been the source of pollination and cross-pollination of ideas, creativity and grassroots genius, without taking away the nectar from the flower for ever.
