Question by rojo.balloon    |  last reply


We should be able to subscribe to each others instructables so when they make a new one it sends it to immediately.

Topic by Xander da gr8    |  last reply


Has anyone noticed that you can subscribe to yourself? I just did so while looking at one of my instructables..... weird. Why could you?Don't know if anyone else has done this but just thought of throwing it out there.

Subscribe to Author?

I had an idea... You know how YouTube allows you to subscribe to a "channel" (an account)? Perhaps we should have that for our authors, or Ibl'ers or whatever we call ourselves. The Ibles Robot may be a bit busy, but his girlfriend/secretary might be willing to PM me whenever whoever I've subscribed to posts something new. Kiteman had a good point: Make Groups subscribe-to-able Just a thought.

Hello Subscribers

I noticed today that I have 55 subscribers. Some of you I know personally and some of you I have talked to enough times on this website to feel like I do, but most of you I never met before. I am just wondering why you subscribed to me? Who you are? What do you like? Have you been using this website for a while? What do you do with yourself? What country are you in?Let's talk!(I figured I would post this as a forum topic because you would all see this as an update.)

Yay for subscribers!

I have decided that I like the subscription process!I just posted an entry to the Workshop contest (yes, I know I can't win, what the hey), and even before it reached the "recent" list, I've got a bunch of comments, and Bumpus has added an extra step that much improves the whole thing.Yay, Bumpus!

Subscribing and email bug

I am having a problem with following the members Knextremely stupid and master-splinter306. Whenever I follow either of them (or when they follow me) I'm automatically unsubscribed from them. This problem has been going on since I started Instructables. This causes an issue because I don't get emails for their comments or messages. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone fixed this bug. Thank you. :-) master-splinter306's profile: Knextremely stupid's profile:

RIP Subscribe Button.

Has anybody else noticed that the "Subscribe" button has now become a little "Follow" button on Instructables? I mean seriously, Twitter rip-off anyone? Why did they even change it in the first place, it was perfectly fine as it was. How do you all feel about this (and all the other Instructables changes too?)

Three Mystery Subscribers

Hello K'nexers, just wanted tell you about 3 new subscribers and basically I got a new one on the 18th and 25th January and then on the 1st February which were all Sundays so basically I was getting a new subscriber every Sunday for three weeks and then it just stop although I still do get them which is good a thing. From my POV it felt like a winning streak or it was just down to luck but I'm not quite sure myself since it was just very weird thing to happen. Would be interested to hear you thoughts and opinions.

Subscribing To Users On Instructables?!?!?!

Here's an idea I thought of a few weeks ago: Subscribing to Users on Instructables.It will be exactly like YouTube kind of, except you can see the New Instructables/ Slideshows/ Videos any of the users you subscribed to posted.Picture 1) This will be on each users page. Obviously the button will not be like that, it will be like the buttons on Instructables, gray and orange words.Picture 2) Next to Submit, it will say "Subscriptions v" (v is the little arrow), and when you hover over it, it will say New Instructables, New Slideshows, New Videos.Picture 3) Couldn't make my own, so I used YouTube. It won't be like this, but it will be close. See the New Videos/ Instructables/ Slideshows? Click on any, and it shows any of those from any user you are subscribed to. And when you click their user name, it shows all the new stuff from them. See how right now in the picture it just shows a video? Exact same thing will be for the Instructables and Slideshows, so they won't have a video time under it unless it is a video. It shows the date it was posted, the views, the ratings, the usual.If you have any suggestions, please comment!Thanks!NOTE.Click the i in the picture to see it full size.

Instructables Un-Subscribing From Me

I have a feeling that there is a bug in Instructables that unsubscribes people after they subscribe to me. (or not only me?) I know people un-sub once in a while, But I think this isn't the case... In the past week (or two), Most of the people that followed me, Have un-followed, And I don't think this is a coincidence. I think I can estimate that it happened to me with ~15 people. Am I the only one that has this problem?

I'm having trouble subscribing to folks

I noticed today that all the people I thought I had subscribed to had not been added to my subscription list. So, I went back and tried again. (Using Firefox) I didn't I thought maybe I'd done something wiggy with cookies, and tried it using (shudder) a vanilla IE browser, and it's still not working. When viewing a user's profile page, if I click the button (subscribe to me), it highlights, but doesn't seem to perform any action. If I click the "subscribe" button on a project page, then I'm successfully subscribed to that person. I'm not sure if I'm just doing something strange or if the button isn't working, or if perhaps I'm misinterpreting what that button is supposed to do.

Question by the duct tape skater    |  last reply

Feature request: mass-mail to subscribers

I have just realised how many people have subscribed to me (over 370!). Since they have taken a special interest in me, I feel I ought to be able to reward them somehow. I would like to be able to send a message to all my subscribers at once, giving them advance notice of ibles etc, to let them get first chance to comment or suggest improvements before I publish it to the general public. Update: the majority of replies seem to be in favour or neutral. (For instance, I currently have two projects awaiting publication that are complete enough for useful comments to be made, but not complete enough to publish properly.) Would you have liked the chance to comment on a project a few hours before everybody else? Or to be able to contribute to it before it is published? Or maybe you want to publish a project that is unavailable to the wider public because it does not meet the site's usual family-friendly standards? Or am I giving the concept of subscribers more significance than I ought?

Good bye my friends and subscribers

Due the still ongoing problems with the last site update I decided to extend my "holidays" from this website.Those who know me will also know that I always tried to asnwer questions to my projects quickly.Same for all those seeking help in the community forum but I am simply not willing to waste more time searching and fixing than actually answering.If things here change back to a usable forum and once user requests are at least considered by Autodesk feel free to ask me to come back.Until then I will have to find other things to do with my time.In the meantime I might still check on questions to my Instructables but not on a regular base.

How do i unsubscribe to people? Answered

I accidentally subscribed to myself and it was fun for a minute or so, then i went to my page and there was no unsubscribe button!

Question by NYPA    |  last reply

What is the value of a subscription?

Subscriptions to members certainly have use. I subscribe to people in whose work I am interested, who are sometimes also friends.  That means I get emails that let me know what they have done, even if I miss seeing them in the lists of projects and topics. Those subscriptions have value to me, as a subscriber, because they make my life easier. However, I have noticed that quite a number of people use subscriptions as a form of currency or reward.  "If you do this thing for me, I will subscribe to you". How much value do you place on subscriptions? Do you measure your own worth as a member by the number of subscriptions you have? Do you decide how much to respect somebody else by the number of subscribers they have? What if you were only allowed to subscribe to one person for every project you had published?
