Instructables

It would help if we had some actual furry instructables to add to the group. If you find one or make one, lemme know, and I'll add it. Generally anything related to the fandom is what I'm looking for.

no instructables

What would you do without instructables? My internet was down for the past month, so I had no instructables. What would you do if that or some other problem happened to you?

Instructables

I have set myself a challenge of running a pocket radio on the power from one candle alone. I think it is possible but have found no patents or other attempts on the internet. I wondered if it might be suitable for an instructable competition.

Hello, I published and instructable, called 9 millimeter machine pistol, a while ago, it shows up on my profile as published and I wanted to know how many people have seen it. Also I wanted to know why I don't see it on here or really anywhere.

Best of instructables Answered

I was wandering if you could make "the best of instructables book"? as there all instructables that every one has acess to. It may take time but would save you money if you printed it at a photo printing place or somewhere like that.

Instructables Flaw

I don't know about you guys, but on the right side of instructables there are pictures of other instructables. When someone posts a comment with a bunch of pictures, a lot of times you cant see a couple of them because they are blocked off by the pictures of other instructables on the right. Is there any way to fix this?

Instructables rating

I have rated many instructables so far, but I just realized that I can't rate accurately unless I actually make the thing in the instructable.  From now on, I am going to just rate the instructables that I make.  Secondly, it will be almost impossible to pull a 5 star rating from me any more.  Almost no instructables are the "best ever", so I will not rate it so.  Do not ask me if I rated your instructable, I will tell you if I built it or not.  That's just my opinion on ratings.

Instructables editor

Maybe there is already an instructable for creating instructables, but so far I have not found it, and I'm having trouble putting an instructable together. I find the editor "clunky" to say the least. Can't find any way to place photos where they belong in relation to the text, and can't separate multiple photos in the same "step". Can anybody point me in the right direction?

visiting instructables

Esterday I got a tour of instructables and all I can say is that it was awesome! we arrived at auto desk and signed in and aleator777 gave us a tour of instructables/the workshop.  Aleator777 was the nicest person ever!  In the workshop there were cnc machines, laser cutters and 3D printers galore. There was also a kitchen and a sewing room. I got a peek at mikeasuarus and Tinaciousz's upcoming instructables!  All I can say is that it was amazing!

Instructables as an Extracurricular

Really weird question. I didn;t know where else to ask. So I really love tinkering, building things, and making Instructables. I'm applying to college and thought putting it on would be a good idea. However, I really don't know what to 'call' it. if the admissions officers don't know what Instructables is - it looks really weird. Online Tech Blogging would be a wrong way to phrase it. Tinkering is far too general. I'm looking for a short and specific term that includes my love for building/making stuff, and my interest in instructables. Thanks for the help, and I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask :(((((

Instructables in 2005?

Anyway, this is an awkward question, as there are very few that know (not including admins). How did Instructables look in 2005? how was the homepage? what did the editor look like? were there forums back then? admins, you are more than welcome to answer, as i do not know anyone who joined in 2005 that is not an admin.

Fake instructables

So I have come across this one user. MegaPrincess3001 https://www.instructables.com/member/MegaPrincess3001/ He is posting fake instructables. I mean, these Instructables obviously are fake and are not helpful in any way. They are funny, but I do not feel they belong in this community. For example, one video is just of him and one of his friends eating baked goods and then pretending to poop out a "pizza". He passes this off as "making a pizza". Watch "how to make a pizza" to get what I mean.  I have attached  an uploaded image of him "cooking a pizza" to show you what I mean What is instructables policy on these videos? Are they considered spam, inappropriate? or will we just allow them to exist on this site? I have flagged both of his videos as inappropriate. If you agree with me, I suggest that you do so to. ~wowguy

This is more of a sugestion to the people who run instructables. It would be really cool if you had a materials search as well. I know it would require some sort of entering process on behalf of the posters, but i think it would be neat.

Missing Instructables :(

It hasn't been a month since I've posted my last ible and I won't be able to post ibles on a regular basis for the next few months, but I already miss instructables :( . I'm trying to concentrate on my studies for a while but I can't. I really wanted to participate in the Zombie contest (I'm a huge fan of 'walking dead!), but it takes time to collect the materials, make something, document it to post an ible, I hope there will be more Zombie contests in the future. Anyways, just wanted to say, I'm sure I'm not the only one and I would really appreciate any suggestion and consolation so that I can stop feeling sad about missing instructables and concentrate on my studies for some time. Can't wait till my exams are over!
