Featured Instructables.

What does it take for an Instructable to be featured? Only one of my 6 Instructables have been featured, so I'm kinda disappointed.

Hey guys, in case you haven't noticed, there is a colored banner underneath everyone's display pic with a number that states how many instructables they have published. I was wondering what color corresponds to which numbers (like I know that at least 1-5 is blue)?

not able to submit an instructable

I tried to post a new instructable at 11.30PM PST on May 9th 2010. While it is uploading the pics, it just erased everything that I typed for the steps. I had to redo the entrie thing and at 11.55PM PST on May 9th 2010 I re-submitted the new instructable, for the paper cup contest. Now the site threw up saying that it cannot accept the instructable since deadline has crossed. According to the rules, the site should be able to accept entries till 11.59PM PST. It was so frustrating to see that my instructable cannot be posted after spending so many hours of hardwork..

Free Instructional Illustrations

I want to create some instructional illustrations for an instructable to be published here. Who's? I still don't know. There will be no cost to it. Just tell me about the instructable that you are working on so we can work through it. How does it work The illustration will be based upon a photo. You will take a picture that you want to use in your instructable and I will vectorize it by tracing over the image. Then, I will send the vectorized image back to you so you can publish it. Copyrights The work rights will be under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0). That means that I just need you to put my name on the credits of your post. I will use the images in my portfolio and/or will be published on my website. About Me I am a graphic designer and web developer that decided to join the United States Coast Guard a few years ago. I loved my job but I wanted to do something different and serve. I love what I do now but I miss designing so much that I've decided to do it for free. I guess is still serving the community.

Instructables Robot Memopad

In my Tech. class we are learning to use a line camera, develop film, make plates and use the off-set printing press. The press this was printed on is from 1955, oldest in Maine my instructor says. In the gluing process I messed up a little, some pages got misaligned and I went a little heavy on the glue, but I trimmed it after and it looks better.

Instructables Robot Wallpapers !!

Ok so i was a bit bored earlier so i went on photoshop and started making a background/wallpaper and then i thought "Why not make an instructables one!!" So then i came up with these three designs :DYou can download them one by one or you can download a zip file of all three,I have also put a zip file of the three designs in photoshop format below, this is so you can change it around or resize it or whatever, all i ask is that you keep my watermark in the bottom right and don't claim the work as your own.Tomorrow i am going away for a week so i will have lots of free time, i will create some more designs and upload them when i get back.I hope you like the wallpapersand if you want it would be very helpful if you gave me any improvements or design suggestions in the comments below.Thanks !! =SMART=

Reduced Instructable Pages!

We need to be able as a community reduce the amount of pages each project uses. This kind of goes against the stub philosophy, but imagine if you could reduce an Instructable to a single page or even multiple projects per page. If not 1, why not 2, or 3? I see some projects that are overwhelming with information at times. This could also add even more features such as un-selecting the steps that you don't need and poof, gone! There is also the potential for yet more ad views (which means everyone wins) with this service | 1. ads on the service page, 2. ads on the finished page. I've been considering this for years in all documentation that I do, how to reduce pages. However, this will be impossible without the staff at Instructables support and willing to adapt and grow. I also know paper is not the issue it used to be, but that isn't exactly the point I'm trying to reach; for instance sometimes more is really too more. Also, I know I'm new but focusing on that goes against my belief in working agile. Hi everyone!

should i make an instructable on how to make a electric potters wheel? and possibly a kiln

Should i post an instructable on how to make an electric potters wheel?(and possibly a kiln) I am reluctant because there are no that many artists(that i have noticed)on this site, let alone potters. plus a kiln and potters wheel are EXTREMELY expensive to buy.(i use the schools kiln and pottery wheel, i clean all the wheels and floor and stuff and i recycle the clay i pick up and they let me use the wheel sand kiln with the clay i pick up because i am not enrolled in the ceramics class) the methods that i have in mind will cost possibly less that 150 dollars US. compared to +5 thousand dollars. also, i will be using my phones 1.3 mega pixel camera to be taking the pictures(unless i have enough money to buy a DSLR, i haven't checked my bank account in several months) if you would rather have me wait until i buy a better camera, or if you would rather have me not post please speak up. it will take atleast 10 people in favor for me to do it

Guides to Drawing Wolves Instructable

A while ago I submited an instructable titled "Guides to Drawing Wolves" that was a collection of four wolf drawing tutorials that I had found helpfull along with my own explanations and reccomendations to go along with each one. For everyone that enjoyed and/or benefited from that instructable I wanted to let you know that I've amassed even more tutorials, some of them even better than the ones I originally had that I made the instructable out of. Thus, in the near future I'll either be updating the original instructable to include more guides, or I'll be making a part two. Either way, if you want to see more keep an eye out for it!
