Sorting My View Answered

Hi All --

Back in 2013, there was a comment thread about sorting functions for Instructables, especially in contests.  Since then, the sorting functions have disappeared -- at least on my Mac and PC, using Safari, Chrome and IE. :-)

Will they come back?  It seems to me that's a great way to find out what's "trending" in any contest to get a feed for whether your instructable will get any play.  I'm thinking sort by date, sort by views, sort by #favorites.  

Still: love Instructables.  Love all the great ideas I get to see every day.


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

I beleve they removed those sorts because they might have unduly influenced the votes instructables were getting for the contests. They are always tweaking things to better ensure a level playing field and to better feature ibles for views.
