How to Enter Burning Questions: Round 6



Introduction: How to Enter Burning Questions: Round 6

People search for stuff at Instructables all the time. Sometimes they find what they're looking for, and sometimes they don't. But there are a few common how-tos that come up often enough that make us wonder, "why don't we have an Instructable on that?"

The answer is because no one has written one. But you can change all that.

Below is a list of Instructables that we'd like to have. It's broken into two sections. Think of the "Most Wanted Instructables" list as the Heath Ledger as the Joker type of wanted. The "Wanted Instructables" list below still has tons of people searching for answers to those questions, they just aren't in the top ten right now.

Write an Instructable about one of the topics on the "Most Wanted List" and you will be eligible to win a Magic 8 Ball, a .5 oz. bottle of aloe vera gel to sooth your burn, an Instructables robot t-shirt, a Burning Questions bumper sticker and a robot patch!

- The Instructables have to include their own original images taken by you, the author. Instructables comprised of images found online will not be allowed into the group.
- They have to be titled exactly as they appear above. Why? Because that's what people are looking for.
- They have to have a publish date after September 18th.
- They have to be on the list! Only Instructables answering questions on the list will be admitted to the group.
