Lame Slideshows

The increased visibility/accessibility of the "slideshow" option seems to have resulted in a large increase in the number of useless/non-instructive/incomplete/spam/whack-a-doodle postings. I'm tired of wading through heaps of crap just to find real, honest-to-goodness Instructables: step-by-step instructions for making/doing things. I have no beef with the slideshow format itself; it is quite appropriate for some projects, but the content has recently been predominantly junk. I regard it as littering up the site and polluting the "mission" of Instructables. I'm just grumbling here, as I have no real suggestion for a solution, except that perhaps the standard for approval of postings needs to be higher.

Slideshow not working

My slideshow isn't displaying when I open it, even though all other slideshows do. I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 with Adobe Flash Player on Windows XP SP3. What's going on? Do I need to wait for the publishing process longer? I know it's not a loading problem because it says done in the status bar. When I hover my mouse over it, it just says:(in gray){Movie not loaded...}{About Adobe Flash Player}(takes you to Adobe site)

What happened to Instructables?

I've been away a while, and now that I'm back, I see a lot of purported instructables that are nothing but slideshows of finished projects with no instructions, usually with links to other sites, most of which are selling the plans or instructions.  Has Instructables totally changed, or have I misunderstood what it's about all this time? :(

Introducing Slideshows and Videos!

We just added two new sections to Instructables: Slideshows and Videos. Slideshows and Videos are more ways for you to share your projects, the cool things that you do, and to generally jump into the World's Biggest Show & Tell. Use a slideshow to show pictures of a finished project, a work in progress, your work space, or something that you don't quite have full enough documentation to make an Instructable. Slideshows are perfect for sharing your old projects, or those projects that you did so fast that you forgot to take pictures along the way. You can outline what you did, what tools and materials you used, and show off the final project. For example, here's a Slideshow about a climbing wall I built a few years ago. I didn't take enough pictures to make a full Instructable, but I still want to share my project because I think it's awesome. Also, if you want to embed an Instructables Slideshow on your webpage or blog, go for it! There's embed code right below the text.We've noticed that video is becoming a bigger part of Instructables, so we made a special section for videos. Share your full how-to videos, videos showing off your projects in action, or a video tour of your workshop. How-to videos that are logically broken into steps and have support images of each step still make perfect Instructables and we want to encourage more of these; we hope that Videos will support and help grow the site by making a specific section for how-to videos that don't quite need our step-by-step format. You can embed videos from any of the major video sites, so there's no need to re-upload! Anything that you share in a Slideshow or Video should be your own project or a project that you have intimate familiarity with, and your own content. We want to encourage a conversation between the Instructables community and the person who did the project. So for example, posting a Slideshow about an awesome native-hardware coffee table that your parents built is perfect. Save posting projects you found on the web for the forums, and be sure to include a link to the original content. I'm really excited about these new features. I know that everyone has something to share at Show & Tell, and Slideshows and Videos give more opportunities to do just that.

My gripe with the new I'ble classification system

Okay, so I know there is another conversation about this, but well I can't find it... so I'm going to give my 2 cts worth I know that recently the site has been re-vamped with a new Instructable submission classification, which, yeah okay I think has it's pro's and cons I'm personally abit infuriated with itbut well... I'm not going to just makea complaint and then not suggest a resolution Anyway... The single picture I'bles showcasing someones creation are a good idea (to an extent) but, I wonder if perhaps It's being advertised the wrong way? take for example This I'ble I think the posters sweets look brilliant, and I think that they may not know just how to do a step by step Instructable... but I have been noticing alot of pictures with very little write up etc... could we therefore in the welcome email that the Wonderful Robot sends link people to an I'ble emplaining how to post an I'ble, which includes a which classification suits what type of I'ble (If people at HQ are busy I don't mind helping) I don't know... I'm just finding it infuriating that there are alot of I'bles being created which don't include alot of content... Don't get me wrong I'm not saying thease people shouldn't post their creations... but I think we have to perhaps educate people as to how the system works... I dont know, it could perhaps be worth trialling it for three months or so, and if it makes no difference then bin the idea... but who knows, it maybe a step in the right direction?

"no-show" bug: Slideshow not displaying images

My slideshow has the "no-show" bug:  FYI: it seems to be the result of saving the slideshow and the slideshow not displaying the latest saved version of the pictures. For example in the slideshow mentioned above, I saved it before uploading any pictures. In past slideshows, I've made a slideshow, uploaded images, saved it and uploaded more pictures, re-saved it, and had the slideshow not display any pictures beyond those uploaded before the original saving.
