Faster Chat room!

Hey everybody!As you know, the instructable chatroom we always use is getting slower and slower as the comments builds up... :(Until gmjhowe made another faster, chatroom here!It is called The Super Uber Mega Instructables Chatroom. Enjoy!Also its the exact same chatroom as on the ibles website, so anyone in the uber version can talk to people in the normal version (on the ibles website).I am not trying to spam here, the reason I am doing this is because a lot of users are complains that the old chatroom is getting slower...

A Read Later button

Hey! I just want to suggest that the instructables team adds a "read later" (or something similar like "want to do") button that bookmarks an instructable you're interested so you can check it out later because sometimes you want to build a project and don't have the materials on hand,so with a read later button you can come back to the instructable later without a lot of searching for the exact one you were planning on doing. Not sure if this is in the right place so please redirect if it isn't. Thanks!

Next time when it's contest voting time...

It would be fairer to sort the entries from least views at the beginning, to most views at the end. Now, it's the opposite. And visitors are too lazy to browse to the last page of the contest, which can be seen in the views counts: Right now in the Humana Health by Design Contest, the last entry has 43 views, which is only 0.1% of the views the one at the beginning has: 32,171. This means that whether an entry is going to be a finalist, only depends on little differences in views at the beginning of the contest. The ones that are just a little in the majority get almost all views, the ones who were just a little in the minority get much less views, so the differences get bigger and bigger during voting time. And the amount of votes of course depends on the amount of views. It would be fairer if all entries get about as much viewers, so the same chances. This can easily be done by sorting them in the opposite order, so they switch positions all the time.

A million ways to skin a cat.

A Million Ways to Skin a Cat. I have to say that one of my favorite places in the web is https://www.instructables.com. Waking up to that email on thursday mornings, the https://www.instructables.com news letter makes me happy im such a geek. I love to read the peoples reviews and each individual point of view... those comments sometimes really get me going....  I have done a few DIY form this site but I guess I am not a forum/comment guy.  (to be fair this is my first post on a forum since 2008) And now... to the point .  I invite https://www.instructables.com to help us geeks challenge each other while improving the site with a simple new feature. A Million Ways to Skin a Cat Basically get from "step a" to "step b" you an follow different approaches.   A step or a process in an "instructable" may be improved or explained in any other way. This feature  enables users to set there creations free and make all the community share there ways and get to the optimization of projects.    Think of the search for a new project starting from a proces you already know.  For example: using a DREMEL tool on wood.  You could se many instructables containing this keywords, but what if you could see the process of carving wood, explained in detail on many ways, by many users. The user will share his method, and experience or simply pitch in with some new info or detail he might have encounter or needed during the process.  On the GUI I imagine below the next step lower right button a button that says something like "MORE" or "A.A. (another approach"). This button coul also link to another instructable that has a detail guide on how to do the process at hand.  Instructables will start to branch out and interconnect to form an organic and hands on detail database.   Any ways thats my humble idea. I wish it helps this site to grow and keep helping people.  P.S. Maybe you have another way, who knows if out there are one million more ways...

A Shoutout: Make Your Instructables Better

Just want to say something: PEOPLE NEED TO USE MACRO MODE ON THEIR CAMERAS. Just press the button that looks like a flower. It lets you take macros, which are for taking close up pictures. You have no idea how many instructables there are out there with incredibly blurry pictures.

The Racker Rifle 2013

So I decided I didn't like my Racker Rifle that much anymore.  Mostly because it had one or two broken parts.  So I took TheDunkis's idea that he pitched to me on the original ible of using hinges for an even stronger trigger.  Turns out I could fit the new trigger mechanism in perfectly into the old gun body, so the gun from the outside looks almost unchanged.  The good thing though is that the trigger no longer uses a broken part and it is even stronger. The other change is that it has a modified SwagBoss handle on it for the ramrod, but I've had that on their for a while.  Thanks to The Foofinator. The internal picture is like 95% right, I tweaked one or two things after I took that picture before I put the whole thing together.

Knex snipers, how to make them better

As i was working on my own knex sniper, which still needs a lot of tweaks, i began to think about all of the possible ways to make it better, a friction-less (something like killerk's srv1/2) barrel, maybe a better trigger, stock, even ammo type to get the most range out of your sniper, the point of this is for you to post guns for a certain trait like, barrel, trigger, stock, etc., so that someone, maybe me if im up to it, can combine the parts to make a better sniper, or just improve our own :P...

Instructables links for a better tomorrow

I am hoping this will soon become a forum where everyone can come to see lists of instructables that they can easily do around the house. This is not however an extra way to promote your unrelated ible. If you truly believe that your project helped the environment with then Zeroth law applies: Thou Shalt Post. Also please dont refrain from commenting on peoples instructables from here so that people know what is good/easy/difficult/effective ect. I will start by posting my own. Its not very good but it is very easy and effective and i still use mine without damage. My second instructable.

Instructables android (ios) app - improvement ideas

I'm making this topic in order to make people come forward with their ideas for improving the instructables android and ios app. So if you have any ideas for improving the app functionality, overall space requirements, app features or anything else please come forward. As a start I would like to name a few features: - I would really like a "clear cache" button and an option to cache to a SD card; - I have no idea if this is done, immediate project updates between the app and online profile of the user that is logged in; - immediate comment updates when someone comments on a project and all relevant project updates (e.g. when a project is featured), also definable by the user; - a popup that comes up when you press back button on the main screen stating "press again to exit". That is all from me now. I'll be back with more ideas (I think). Join and let's make the app much more user friendly and customizable.

Overall do you guys think Killerks Knex Pistol is better than his Magnum. Or do you think KIllerks Magnum is better than his first pistol? I think his Magnum is better-because it looks better, better accuracy,and has real trigger thats unique.

Which is better?

Well i was just wondering which do you think is better ask.com or google.com i know google is more popular but which one is overall better? ask.com:pros: Can see screen shot of website. shows pictures of the search item on the side. shows blogs on side. gives you suggestions. I thinks thats it now for google. google.com:pros: Most browsers have a little bar at the top for searching. Most popular searching site. Can't think of anymore.. ask.com:cons: Not very popular All i can think of. google.com:cons:doesn't have all that stuff that ask.com has. That seams to wrap it up. What do you think is better? Also if you have any thing to add on the pros and cons list post them here.

I have found out this new element that works at high speeds better. When it turns I recommend you keep a guardrail below. This is better when this is high up in the air because it will get more speed.

Surge in contests creating more / better instructables?

Is it me, or does it seem that the recent surge in contests strongly correlates with the number and quality of instructables submitted? I feel so inferior, but happy to see such great projects being posted. I really am impressed.
