I get an error message when I click on my instructable entitled, "Thinking Hat." It is a "500 Servlet Exception" message.

The attached stack trace shows up when any ible in the usb contest is clicked. . . .this could be a huge security hole for the site (pretty specific stack trace . . .) it appears to boil down to a null pointer exception . . .did someone move a folder? any way you all probly know about it already but just in case here it is.

I formed a new group last night and attempted to moderate the members (to approve join requests I knew were pending) but was unable to do so. I get 500 servlet exceptions every time. I gave it overnight but it's still not working today.

I have been thinking of building something like a two-way radio except that it should be more like a mobile phone network with the exception of call charges. it will be used in a small environment of about 100 people. I was wondering if anyone has ideas on how to build something like this.

Try creating an instructable with the text below in the description. When you save it, a JSON parse error pops up. The same exception will pop up each time you go to edit the instructable, preventing you from reaching the edit page or ever deleting it. You apparently need to sanitize your input a bit more. SET count=0 setlocal ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION FOR /f %%a IN ('dir /b *.jpg') DO ( set /a xOffset = !count!*2 set /a xSize = 1098+!count!*6 set /a yOffset = !count!*1 set /a ySize = 732+!count!*4 "C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.7.3-Q16\convert.exe" %%a[!xSize!x!ySize!+!xOffset!x+!yOffset!] pan-%%a set /a count=count+1 ) The exact exception is: "There's been a problem updating your Instructable [object Object] parsererror SyntaxError: JSON.parse: bad escaped character"

Large images not available in instructables--nothing shows except the message that they are not available. Thumbnails are there but I can't enlarge them. Some instr. are difficult to follow if you can't enlarge the thumbnails.

Howdy is there a kind of resist that can be left on the pcb after etching (except the solder points), as an electrical insulator? can it be used with the photo-etching method, or only heat? thanks

I am gathering the materials for a project, and I need a small digital camera.The lens must not move, images must be downloadable via usb, batteries must be charged via the same usb.This camera is ideal, except it is way too expensive, and is a video camera (and it's from China, but that's another issue).This camera is ideal, except that the batteries are not charged via the USB, which makes my project much trickier (I'm going to be building the digital camera into another object).Can anybody recommend (or at least find online) a "happy medium" between the two?

When you try to view a page in the Answers section it takes you to a page with a javax servlet exception. Looks like someone forgot to define a field and it broke the query engine ("Caused by: org.apache.solr.common.SolrException: undefined field Whats"). The error displays as follows: Please excuse me, that was very impolite! - javax.servlet.ServletException: solr Ex !

The error continues but it looks like an undefined field. Oops. Maybe put some error checking into the code next time guys.

I just spent.. far too long going through the list of the entries for The Book.There are nearly 2000 entries. That's nearly a hundred pages to look through when dishing out your vote.There will inevitably be some people who lose out badly because their projects are so far down the list that people simply get tired before they get to the end and give up.I propose that the voting page for this exceptional contest be arranged an exceptional way - all on one page.A single list of smaller-than-usual thumbnails, with the title beside and a vote / unvote button or tick-box beside that.That way, all people have to do (all?!?) is scroll down a single page and click away.It would also be nice if that list could be re-arranged in order of votes / views / stars.

Hi! I previously won prizes on several contests here at Instructables and all of them were shipped to Hungary without any costs on my part, except the last one, I had to pay approx. 40 usd for a prize estimated at 75 usd. Did something change in Instructables' shipping policies?

Alright, I'll keep it short and sweet: Catch-up time. Mechanisms from '08-'10, all different versions. Why not a slideshow? 'Cause I hate them. More stuff coming up. Also, these are only a few pictures of each thing, there are many more of each of them (except the mechanical hand, unfortunately).

Hey, Just publish an instructable Slide show for the Gingerbread Slideshow contest. I received an e-mail saying it was excepted, but it does not show up in the group, nor does it show up in the community searches. I can see it in my account, but nowhere else. Any help would be appreciated. Happy Holidays Scooter76

I've got an old Z1 laptop with a 14.1" screen and AC power adapter that works 100% except the battery's completely dead and there's a crack in the housing. This would be perfect for someone who's looking to do one of the digital picture frame instructables. Email me if you're interested at email@example.com. I'm looking for $300 obo.

It seems that the Preview button below the comments editor box is no longer working. When I press it, the page display jumps a bit, but nothing is presented except the editor box itself. This happens when I leave the editor in the "plain text/raw HTML" mode. I'm using the latest Firefox 3.6.11 on MacOSX 10.5.8.
