Design criteria for Ibles.... Answered
I just noticed that we have now standards that need to be followed if you want to publish an Instructable.
Standards are good but not so much if the editing options for an Ible are at a standard from the year 2000.
If I had fun designing something as simple as whistle that shall be created in a 3D printer: Then why would I need images showing how I designed it?
Or why would I need images for the print settings or idea behind it?
A community goes both ways!
The editing tools are still sub standard and the images handling is a bad joke.
If I need to explain something complex with the aid of images then of course I want the images in the right spot with the text - ever thought about this or visited website that offer similar after the year 2000?
Usability is not just a means to provide the same look on all browsers and devices or to be able to use the most basic way to convert a website into a PDF.
Usability is also for those who create it but that part seems to be lost for years now no matter how many times people ask, suggest or comment on the problem.
I have no problem making my creations available elsewhere if that is the only way out here.
If you want people to create proper Instructables then for crying out loud give them the means to do so!
And fix the damn category selection bogus when posting in the community section.
Has no use for years but why bother to fix it....
Before you guys force people doing things your way only you should consider in what times we are and how proper usability would benefit this site....
