Reporting someone?

Not sure where this should go but I've looked and couldn't find anywhere more suited. I'd like to report two user's as I believe they are either the same person or one has stolen from the other. The specific intsructables I am on about are here: will notice they both have the same idea, as well as the reel of blue tape is the same and so is the surface on which the photos were taken, and of course they were both submitted on the same day. I flagged both of them as spam (now I think about it maybe 'inappropriate' would have been more appropriate), but I'm sure this will just be ignored once whoever checks them find nowt wrong with the individual instructables (I don't think just one person would look through them all).Is there perhaps a moderator or admin that I can send a message to?

reporting a bug

Two people who are pro members were not able to download my PDF with images. Since I am not a pro member myself, I could not either. They suggested I report the bug, and I thought posting in the forum would make sure the images aren't loading for anyone.

IDEA: Report user

When we had an Orangeboard, I used to leave messages on a spammer's Orangbeboard, and then report them so the staff could see. Now I can't do that. On YouTube, under the about page, I can report the user, but now, I can't do that. Example, on the right part of the screen: Something like this: *clicks* Choose between the following options: Spamming/Unwanted advertising Inappropriate profile picture/comments/etc... ... *clicks* Thank you! The Instructables staff will review this ASAP!

How You Can't Report Bugs

There doesn't seem to be a contact route to report bugs on the Instructables website. Having encountered a very annoying bug, I searched the Instructables website and found in the Forums "How to Submit Bug Reports" at . That post has a  link to take you to where you can report your bugs. That link is . Surprise! That link takes you to .....(drum roll!).... . Which is exactly where you started from. After about six circuits of this merry-go-round without finding a way to actually get wherever bugs are supposed to be reported, I just decided to post this so everyone else can have as much fun as I did. If they want to. I think it's a bug, but since I can't find a way to report it, I'll go home now.

Writing a useful bug report

From time to time, people have trouble with the Instructables site. Often they have found a bug that we need to fix. If this happens to you, here's how to tell us so we can fix it as soon as possible.Search!A lot of times the bug you found has been reported already. Do a quick search in the bug forums to see if you can find an existing report. There may be a workaround that someone has posted, or an estimated fix time. If it's already been reported, go ahead and comment on that rather than making a new report.Check, as well, if the problem is something on your system that we can't do anything about. For example, Firefox users may have installed the Greasemonkey extension, and some Greasemonkey scripts cause unexpected behavior on Instructables.Details!Provide a lot of information, including:the OS and browser you're usinga link to the page you were on, and/or the page before, where things were still OKthe error message you got, if any (copy/paste if possible)anything else you can think of that seems relevantProcess!In order to fix the problem, we have to be able to see it happen - we have to be able to reproduce it. Write a step-by-step list of the things you did to get the problem. If you don't remember exactly, try doing what you were doing again, slowly, to get the bug a second time. If you can't get it to happen again, we probably won't be able to get it to happen either. Sad but true.Patience!Some bugs may take a while to fix, either because they're very difficult, or because other bugs and features are higher priority. In general, if you can't do something you should be able to do, we'll fix it as soon as possible. Things that just look weird, or have alternate ways to be done, we'll fix later.

Cannot load page fully

Website is great but there is a bug when reading articles. When you get towards the bottom of the page it stops and bumps you up. You can try to go back to the bottom but it once again bumps you up before you can reach it. I have duplicated this problem on windows 10 and on another box with windows 7. So if you are glued to reading the next comment you can forget it... it just bumps you back up. Very frustrating if you want to read posts.

Insturctables Search not working

I am having problems with the "Lets Make ______".  I enter a search (the letters do not show, so I have to assume I'm typing the right letters).  It seens to allows me to search, but instead returns me to a blue screen with the "Lets Make" button again, this time with an option to change where I'm searching.  When I try to change from Everything to Popular, it won't change.  Not only that but when I do allow it to search for my item in Everything, it returns EVERYTHING, but nothing on what I had searched for.  It is frustrating, and although I used to surf your site a lot (and have made a lot of things via the Instructables), your new search has made your site almost useless for me.

Annoyance: Formatting/URL mistakes suppress preview completely

A new feature deployed recently checks the URLs we put inside comments (i.e., the first token inside square brackets) and reports if we haven't given a valid URL.The annoying bug is that the whole preview is suppressed, and there is no indication of where in the text the error might be. Briefly, the preview actually showed the whole text, but with the error part called out in big red box. That was better, and would be nice to get back.Failing that, maybe just putting the malformed URL into the preview as a literal string, highlighted or underlined or something might be helpful.

Making safety easier

I have seen many users ask questions like "how do you report a user"  and " is there a button for flagging a user after I flag the instructable?" Well I myself already know but that doesn't help the other few million users(wow) that don't know. After this forum post I plan on emailing but maybe there is another way. I was thinking that maybe an admin could send a private message to every new and old user saying that the way to report a user is to go to the about page  click on an instructables team member then to send them a private message telling them what the user did, where and why it should be removed( user and/or instructable). It would be even better if the instructables team got together and made groups open to the public again. I did some research and groups used to be easy to get to but if you copy and paste this and try to go to it it won't work. I did some more research and it seems that all the current groups are run by businesses or companies. I just want to make things easier for the average user so that we can make this a more enjoyable site. Also I would like to make a group for younger users so that we can post instructables to each other. It would be cool to have our own circle.  -gearup500

Somewhat misleading link for bug reports on Submit page

Something Ain't Working - A Bug Report

Something ain't working. That's right, I said something ain't working. And I demand that you fix it right now. Just to make sure that you get how irritated I am, I'll say it again in all caps: FIX IT RIGHT NOW!!!!! See how I put a bunch of exclamation points, too? That shows that I mean business. Yessir, I am not a person to be trifled with. I have a Shift key, and I'm not afraid to use it. Tremble before my wrath! So go fix it! And no, I'm not going to tell you what it is. I am the customer. It's not my job to provide useful information, and besides, my time is very precious to me. Sure, it would take maybe five minutes for me to tell you what happened, what section of the site it happened in, which link I clicked, what browser and OS I'm using, whether it happened once or a thousand times, when I first noticed it, or whether it's already been reported by someone else, but those five minutes are MY TIME!! I am the customer, and I absolutely refuse to participate in any way, except to tell you that something ain't working and I'm REALLY REALLY ANGRY about it.  Instead, I expect the staff to go check every link and every button on every page on the whole site, using every single combination of browsers, operating systems, plug-ins, security settings, hardware and connectivity options that exists. And you'd darn well better hope that when you've done all of that and discovered every possible bug, you fix mine first. Or I'll type more stuff in ALL CAPS! And don't even think about suggesting that there might be something I could do on my end to fix it. I will not put forth any effort whatsoever! I AM THE CUSTOMER! So what if I'm not clicking the right button? It's YOUR JOB to come to my house and click the right button for me, because THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT! That means you have to drop everything and do whatever I say, no matter how irrational or counter-productive it is. It also means that none of your other customers' bugs mean anything at all, just mine. Because I am THE customer. So hop to it! Something still ain't working. You better fix it right now, or I'm gonna file a complaint with the cops, my Congressman, FEMA, my mom and Jesus. I'll probably do that in all caps, too. Well, maybe not the one to Jesus.

Allow members to post "build reports" and mark Instructables as "I did this!"

The purspose of Instructables is to provide guides for people to build stuff, right? So it seems like members should be able to click a button that says "I built this!" for an Instructable, and we could see how many people have actually gone out and built their own version. It'd be even cooler if you could add a "build report" with pictures and videos of your version of that instructable. Otherwise, people who build stuff might put their pics up on Flickr or Facebook, and maybe link to the Instructable, but it isn't easy to see all the different versions of that Instructable that have been implemented.

Report FB Registration Bug

Hello, I've registered with Facebook some time ago and now I've tried to update my personal data when I found out that you have a problem with the link to the personal website of your users profiles. That link, if absent, becomes the facebook page when someone registers with FB, but still you duplicate the "http://http://" part (see photo in attachment).      I am a web developer and that is like my job, so I suppose you've simply hardcoded the first "http://" and then forgot to make the check if the url contains the same "http" string, as in the register-with-facebook case.  Keep up the good work, I love Instructables and I hope my feedback will help you.

bug report == or at least it is to me

I use Corel  Photo Paint 16 to edit all my pictures. It is running on a fast Windows 7 system. I often shoot pictures sideways with my camera for a better use of the rectangle format. It is a DSLR by Olympus.  So when I edit the pictures I rotate them and fix contrast and everything. I also reduce the size since the camera takes things at the max resolution.  But a strange thing happens when I upload the pictures to instructables. It changes the orientation back to the original. All the cropping and contrast adjustments are there, but the pictures are sideways. Not just the thumbnails the entire picture. So I have to go through them and use your online edit program to rotate them back to where they should be. This is sometimes a problem when I am trying to put up a new instructable and I have a lot of pictures and I have to spend a lot of time re editing the pictures again. What is an even bigger problem is when the online program messes up and I have to just post things sideways until the program starts working correctly again. I almost missed the deadline on a recent contest because of the pictures needing to be fixed. Any clue as to what might be causing this?

Reporting plagarism: Arduino Hydroponics

Hello, It has recently come to my attention that an instructable here was blatently plagiarized from one of my previous projects, and in fact actually won an award. The instructable in question is: Proof that it ripped off my project can be found here; my original forum post here goes back to 2012, the instructable in question here was posted November 2014:  My repository containing my code on github: The code from the instructable in question: The code is mine, line for line, with the exception that the plagiarizing author in question removed my comment at the top with my name as the author. I tried to contact the author, but my messages went ignored and the comments on his instructable page were flagged and deleted.  The author in his instructable says "Big thanks to BillieBricks for working out a lot of the code," but in fact the entirety of the code is simply ripped straight off from my project, along with the ideas and implimentation. My desired outcome would be to either see this instructable removed, or to have the author include that the entire project be credited to me, rather than stealing credit for something they didn't do.  Thank you, Billie

The text boxes for the Intro and the Steps editors refuse to let me copy/paste anything into them. The pasted text appears for a split second, then disappears.2. The same thing happens with links. I type in a URL and the text for the link, press OK, will show up for a split second then disappear.I hope this helps to make Instructables a better place.

Don't be shy? I'm not shy, but why have numerous questions I've posted never seen the light of day? Answered

Why am I wasting my time is the better question. Are the questions "moderated"?  I'm just curious as to whether or not I should even continue frequenting this site if games are being played or bugs are keeping some of my questions from appearing.  Not saying that's the issue, but I'd appreciate the courtesy of an explanation so I'll know to ask questions on my trustworthy sites instead of wasting my time; or help make note of possible bug issues, here on this site. Thanks in advance.

How do you report spam?

I've noticed at least one user posting bogus Instructables such as recently.  (I'm pretty sure I know how to contact a U-Haul rental store.)  What's the process for reporting similarly objectionable unsolicited commercial content?
