leaving ;( Answered

sadly since i sold my knex (about a year ago now) i honestly dont know what there is to make so im leaving instructables. i havent been here in so long i struggled to find out how to make this forum thread. and now that i am addicted to youtube and minecraft i cant see myself ever making another instructable. so thats why im leaving. but on the brighter side im starting a new youtube series but it has nothing to do with building or anything that you would find on here. anyways its been fun sharing my creations with everyone and i had a good time soooooo............ i guess its goodbye...

You don't know what else there is to make??

There are 75,000 projects here - are you telling us that none of them are any good for you?

I've been doing my GCSE's as well so its also hard to find time to create something awesome that other people will like without rushing it to have lots of uploads. for example my last ible which i think was my knex NES speed board. was utter crap. this was because i rushed it in so that i could enter something into the gaming contest. and its hard for me to get the money to buy the materials to actually make anything now that i sold my knex. the only thing that i can really make instructions on are computer tutorials which there are plenty of on YouTube. and by the way i am heavily addicted to YouTube at the moment (you don't even wanna know how many hours i spend on that site). so there isn't a lack of stuff to make its just things that are occurring in my life that are restricting what i can actually make that other people will like. so that's why im leaving.

(this was probably my first comment that was spelt right)

Are you saying, people are stealing your creativity, like a particular female?
I am sorry, i just don't understand your wording, lemonie

I meant that you should spend less time playing Minecraft and more time with other people.
Creativity & thought can be used socially, if you don't use it like that then you can find social-relationships difficult.
(I am actually thinking about a particular female, that's quite perceptive of you.)

Yes, it is true, i am finding it hard to have any social relationships... (except, with all my friends who also play mineucraft so much, they never even have to look at minecraft wiki to know what something is...

Yea, you should start learning social relationships now, because you don't want to be finding it hard to make friends or "pick-up girls" in your 20's.
Much of the time people do things like games, TV, film etc because they haven't anything else to do. Having a bit of a party with people pays off in the long term, people do get bored with mindless-entertainment in the end.

Lots to make here, but then the realm of Makerdom is unlimited.....we've heard of the infamous "computer user calls" for instance about certain things; why not make life easier for some of them: for instance - one fellow called into service because the "cup holder on his computer" had broken....of course, he was using the CD/DVD reader/writer but why not make a REAL cup holder for a computer ! One that actually works.....the world of making is your oyster and the pearls you might find by just brain storming are limitless.....NOW get out there an MAKE ! :-D

I am continually absolutely certain I will never make another Instructable, but something always arises that needs a novel solution. When I find it, I share it with an Instructable in case someone else needs to solve a similar problem. Someone please stop me before I publish again!
