How many people followed the instructable and built the item Answered

Hello,

I was thinking it would be nice to have a button for an instructable that says something like "I have followed the guide and made this item" Then show a count of how many people have actually made it.

It would be interesting to see how many people have made https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Snickers-Candy-Bar-Recipe/ (Which are really good, I suggest you make them!) which I saw in an instructables news letter, which I don't see any more, I wonder why. Anyway, There are also a few electronic items that if someone else has made it, and then makes a comment saying it works or something, that would be good to know. Maybe they can have a little tag like how the author has (author).

The idea has been put forward before, in a variety of formats.

So, has it been taken seriously? I think it's a great idea.

Yes, and yes.

That is not a guarantee that it will happen, though.

I ask people, when they comment on my 'ables, to post photos of their builds. Most do.
