    Can somebody please, please help me by answering my question??--is there a limit to the # of Instructables one can add to his/her Favorites??? Regardless of my continuing to mark -ibles as Faves (btw: why -ibles and not -ables? just wondering...), my acct. has stopped at 36. Is this the limit? Is there a limit? Can't find the answer anywhere on this site--if anyone knows, I'd be very grateful for a response. Thank you so much!!

    There is no limit that I'm aware of (I believe I haev about 168 favourites at the moment). By the way, it's ibles rather than ables because ables is a word. I guess the more proper term would be I'bles.
