How do I start a second unpublished instructable? Answered


I've been working on one unfinished instructable, but would like to start on another one.  I'm not seeing how / where to get a new blank format.  Do I need to click on submit instructable?

I feel I should elaborate/clarify.

You can have virtually limitless instructables (within reason) - published or unpublished. When you go to publish them they are simply flagged in the database as actually viewable (once moderator approved). Each is its own, so if you start a new one it won't overwrite the old one.

"(within reason)"?

Is there a limit?

. There's bound to be a hard limit of some sort. Probably something like 32 bits (4,294,967,295), 64 bits (18,446,744,073,709,551,615), &c. I doubt that even Kiteman will ever have more than 4-1/4 billion iBles. :)

Keep on going, you'll get there eventually!

If you set up a bot and just had it keep creating thousands upon thousands of garbage ibles (unpublished), I think it wouldn't go unnoticed. 'within reason' adds a layer of human expectation/assumption to my level uncertainty whether there is a hard limit or not.

So... 'submit' is not the same as 'try to publish'?

submit makes a new ible -- publish makes it visible.
