If you collaborate with another user of ran 'ible and it gets featured do both the users get pro memberships? Answered

My friend and I are collaborating for an ible, and I want to know if we both get pro memberships?

I've checked with HQ, and the answer is "yes".

Both authors of a featured project get the reward, but it's not automatic. If your project gets featured, please email HQ to remind them that your collaborator needs their reward as well.

One step at a time, you don't even know if it'll get featured or not yet ;)

I don't think so. The process of collaborating requires that ONE member is the "primary" author. So only the primary author gets credit for views, ratings, contest wins etc, and I believe the same would apply for receiving Pro membership from a feature.

You do however have a couple options. The first would be to email Instructables (at the address found at the bottom of the website), and ask what their policy is. If they confirm that only ONE member gets Pro membership then if your ible is featured, you can ask staff to divide the Pro membership credit. For example, a category feature earns you 3-months pro, and a homepage feature earns you an additional 1 year pro; so in total you have 15 months (if you get featured twice). If that happens, ask staff to give you codes for two "6-month" pro memberships and then for the one "3-month" pro, you and the other member will just have to come to an agreement over who can use it.

I hope that helps. :)

Oh, that's a very good question...
