This website. Answered

I was talking to FreakCitySF on aim awhile ago, and asked him:
"Are you still active on instructables?",
He replied:
"Yeah, A little, I mostly browse..",
"I have a few more projects, but I don't know if I want to post there (Instructables)"
"A lot of sites pay now.."

I got to thinking, What does this site have more of than any other DIY website on the internet have? What makes members stay active on the site? What makes them want more?

COMMUNITY

FRIENDSHIP


Both of which are gained through the similarities amongst ourselves.
With that said, I would like to thank, the staff and community at instructables, for making this website, my favorite. If I could award something to Instructables, I would, in a heart beat, with no questions asked.

While we are all different, we are all the same.

and Chris, come back to instructables!

Seriously? Did you really say that? I'm not being a red pen, I'm responding to comments like everyone else. Are you trying to start a fight? I think I dislike you MORE as radioactive than when you were coolz because as radioactive you're even more full of yourself. So.. uh... shut up would best sum up my reaction.

Skate, Radioactive and whatsisface:

Between you, you are making some of these fora rather unpleasant places to be. I have already seen one person threaten to leave if this stupid feud doesn't stop, and that's one too many.

If your attitude towards each other does not improve, so that people actually do stop posting, then I think others will agree about who should actually leave the site.

I have offered to "referee" this dispute, but none of you have taken me up on the offer.

So, I am telling you now - stop being so childish and petty. Honestly, my seven-year-old is more mature than you lot at the moment.

If you can't be civil towards each other, just stop replying to each other completely. You should be aware by now that I am not the only one who feels this way, but I seem to be the only one to give you fair warning.

Heed that warning.

Yo, that's not fair, they're your sons after all, they probably build working rockets out of 10 lego pieces, a flashlight and an Altoid box. Did it reach Jupiter yet? Last time I asked, it was photographing Saturn's rings....

No more whining about that. You can be removed just as easily, leave it alone, as should everyone else, it needs to stop dragging on.

They pay?

I'd be willing to bet the projects are dodgy hacks, designed purely to grab attention and get hits (= cash), rather than projects created for the simple joy and art of making, as we do here.

Plus, I bet they don't have close links to magazines like Make and Craft, or events like the Show and Tells and Makers' Faire. I bet they aren't preparing to publish a book.

I bet they wouldn't club together to buy a t-shirt for a member who was ill.

I bet they wouldn't run around getting hits on another site to help a member win a different contest.

I wonder if that's why we haven't seen Kipkay for a while...?
