Why does it say "Submit"?  It should say "Build" or "Build and Submit". or "Build then Submit" or "Build Instructable then Submit"
Why would I click on something that's going to send before it's built?
Look at the interface for this form.  Step1: Edit  Step 2: Preview  Step 3: Publish.  
(While I'm at it those" step" buttons should either work as buttons or be made to look like something different)
Makes infinite sense, unlike the "Submit" at the top right.
Improve these issues, please.
Thank you for your time,
Marcintosh

The "submit" tab takes you to everything you can submit to the site, including forum topics, guides, bug reports, photos and groups. The word "build" would be appropriate for none of those.

You've been a member since 2008. Why has it taken three years to decide you don't like a particular word?

Resistance is futile. Submit.

I guess it's a matter of semantics but used in the context of an application or proposal for the consideration of being posted by instructables, it seems logical and the term abrreviated to denote usage on a menu button.

You could have the instructable in an "unpublished" state and document your build in progress, even stop your build and go back to it later.

Maybe it is an appendix, left from an earlier use and not changed. Consider it the scroll lock of buttons but where you can go to start an instructable. Yeah, now it bugs me too. Not.
