How Do Contests Work?

How does the member voting influence the contests? I thought that i was the driving factor, but after reading the rules I can't tell if it is even taken into account because of the way the judging is described.

Grammar nazi time

I wasn't sure if this would be considered a bug or feedback. "This author has not updated their profile." "Author" is singular, "their" is plural. It should be something like "This author has not updated his/her profile." The devs could probably make that match the account's gender.

No uploaded pictures show up in the library

Update:      I just tried to upload the same photo with my friend's account and everything worked just fine. Now I'm certain that there is something wrong with my account.  Can any Admin here check my account out? I have backed up all the Draft instructable and photos so feel free to cancel or delete them if that's necessary to make my account work. Thank!!!! Ps:  Here is what I think the problem is. The first time I uploaded photo (while writing an instructable), I either uploaded too many photo (although was just around 10), or I didn't wait long enough after the uploaded for the system to show the "complete" message (I however did wait until all the uploaded bar ran till 100%) before I processed to check the photos up in my library.  Not sure if this is a bug or just I run too fast and confused the instructable Robot :p ======================================================================================================== Hi, I was able to upload a few .jpg picture by both new and old uploader, but when ever I open up image library, the loading circle just keep rolling and rolling.  I waited 2 days just in case the server need time to process and tried both chrome IE, and clear cookies on both, still no luck. Anyhing else I should try or I missed? Thanks, added 5/17: I'm using Windows7 x86 system with x86 version of the browsers. However I have both version of flash installed.

Subscription Email Address

I love this website and enjoy my weekly newsletter of new Instructables. Originally, I had them going to my spam-catcher email (I do that when I sign up for something new), but want it to come to my regular email now. My main account settings now has my regular email address, but the newsletter still went to the old one. Private messages and comment updates go to the new email just fine. Finally, I turned off the subscriptions to that old email address. Oops... Now I don't get the weekly at all! I tried to find where to subscribe to the newsletter and all I get is a page that is essentially for new accounts: it wants a NEW address and won't accept my current email address, saying it's already in use. Well no kidding! It's my email address and that's where I want the newsletter to go!!! So how the heck do I subscribe to the weekly newsletter using my current account settings' regular email address? {I originally posted this in the Help-FAQ section}

ProMember cannot download PDFs

Good day, I've become very frustrated in trying to download pdf instructables as a ProMember.  My cookies are on; I've cleaned my cashe and cookies/temporary fiels twice; have tried various ways for logging into my account and downloading these files.  I can log in but everytime I try to "print pdf" or click the pdf icon to go to the instructables pdf page, I'm booted out of my account.  I've tried repeatedly to re-log in only to be booted each time I try to download a file.  Please help - otherwise my paid membership is a waste.  Thanks to anyone that can help. Thanks in advance, Bernadette Baca

Removed from contest after acceptance?

Hello: I've had one of my instructables accepted in the Holiday Gifts and Shopbot Challenges. Today, in my account it only shows it as entered in holiday gifts, and no where to be found in shopbot.  Can you be rejected after acceptance?

Intro text not on PDF?

I just purchased a Pro account and noticed that generating a PDF leaves off the text in the 'Intro' section.  That does not happen on the 'View all steps on one page' option.  Is this a bug?  Is there a work around?  It certainly leaves out a lot of very valuable information in the Instructable. Thanks

Just wondering about what you actually get in a Pro Membership.

I was doing some poking around the site and found this page: https://www.instructables.com/account/give it talks about a few things that I haven't heard of or noticed since being pro for a while. These include: WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor? I did not notice the editor change at all when upgrading to a pro membership. Is this talking about being able to access and edit the HTML of an instructable? Author Intro - I am guessing this is different than the author bio, so I am not sure... Private Instructables - I have never seen an option to make an instructable private. --- After typing the above out, I logged out of my account and went to the signup page here: https://www.instructables.com/account/gopro and it seems the author intro and the WYSIWYG rich text editor seems to have disappeared however the private instructables feature is still there. If it has any meaning, I didn't pay for pro, I am using one my free 1 year pro memberships for getting a hompage feature.

Mac G3 password hacking?

I got a second-hand mac G3 for Christmas, from the sysadmin at my dad's office. Unfortunately, the sysadmin neglected to remove his accounts (and passwords), so as of yet it's impossible to get past the boot screen. Does anyone have any ideas about how I may crack the password or hack into the account... (changing the root password in single user mode doesn't work...) Oh, and by the way, it's running OS X of some sort, but since we can't log in, it's hard to know what cat it is. Help please!UPDATE:With the help of this site, we made an administrator account. We still don't know the master password, and there are a few untouchable files, but we can basically do whatever we want. The next challenge is to connect it to the internet...If you want to know how we got in, here's what we did:(1) we held down command (the propeller) and S as it booted --> this opened single-user mode, a command-line interface with root priveleges(2) instead of "rm"ing (removing), like the web site suggested, we "mv"ed (moved) /var/db/.AppleSetupDone to /var/db/.AppleSetupDone.old(3) we rebooted, and followed the instructions on the screenWhat did this do? It moved the file that told the computer that the computer was set up, so the computer ran the setup "wizard" like it was the first time the computer had ever been booted. After that, all we had to do was follow the instructions on the screen to set up an administrator (root) account. We also learned that the cat is panther, so we might be updating it to a newer version.Thanks for the help!

Emails

Until PayPal accepts my credit card, I won't be Pro for a couple of days. I got an email: Your request to cancel your Pro membership was received on June 17, 2010. You still have 4 days days left in this payment period, so enjoy the Pro features until then. Then 40 minutes later: Your request to cancel your Pro subscription was received on June 17, 2010. This is to notify you that we have modified your account back to the regular level, effective today. Canceling your Pro membership has not deleted your Instructables account and you can upgrade back to Pro again at any time. Fastest 4 days ever! I'll be Pro in a couple of days, but I thought these emails might be some sort of bug

My username changed by itself ????

Hey, I don't know if my computer is haunted or something but my user name has changed without me doing anything. I've been a member since 2008 and my user name always been the same. Last week or so, a friend of mine told me about a post he made on instructables called ballistic bubble. I searched the topic, looked at it and logged off. This week, I can not log into my account, after asking for a password reset I noticed that the user name associated to my account had been changed to ballistic bubble... how in heaven is that possible lol , I thought we were not able to change our user name. Anyone had that problem? Ballistic bubble Aka meagain

Tutorial downloaded PDF has no images

I just upgraded my account so i would be able to download PDF versions of the instructables i like and want to try. I just downloaded my first instructable ( https://www.instructables.com/id/Monster-Monkey-Fist-with-Pool-Ball/?ALLSTEPS ) and found that the images are not included in the downloaded version. Is this correct? If this is the case the instructables would become very hard to follow indeed and defeats the point of me having upgrading my account. C an someone tell me if this is correct and the pictures as displayed on each instructables page are not actually included on their PDF downloads? If this is the case how do i go about getting my money back as this was not made clear and i feel it is somewhat misleading.

Info button doesn't work for widgets in Dashboard and Dashcode (Snow Leopard) - VERY URGENT

I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and on my user account (admin) only, the info button (the little "i" that takes you to the back of a widget) doesn't function in widgets in Dashboard and Dashcode.  I have tried deleting the preference files for Dashboard, but to no avail.  I have also tried reinstalling Dashboard (not the whole OS, just the application) from the disc, but that didn't work either.  The info button works on all the other accounts, but not mine, so can't be a system-wide problem. Does any one have any idea what the problem could be and how I could solve it?

Idea for how to stop fake members from voting

Maybe voting should be accessible only to PRO members... This might be unfair to non PROers, but it's way more fair for contests... I think that there are people that open many many many fake accounts, and vote for themselves in contests. HQ knows how to stop most of them, but, unfortunately,  I'm sure that there are ones that they don't catch.  I think that a member would think twice before wasting tons of memberships on all of his/her fake accounts for voting. I think it could eliminate most of them. I doubt that they haven't thought about this before, but I'd like to hear your opinion. What do you think? :)

Counter Cheating

I'm SURE I'm not the only one who thinks this I, like many, entered my guide in a contest What kills me when I'm viewing the competition is how there's a bad guide thats like 5th in voting, only has like 50-100 views, NO comments Now, something tells me that these people cheat the system by manufacturing accounts and voting for themselves. What they could do is just make it so that you can make one account per IP address in a given time like a day or two or something along those lines If cheaters replace legitimate guides in the finals for a contest, they falsify the legitimacy of the contest If you think Instructables should make some counter-cheater thing, comment, rate, whatever

My clicker doesn't click anymore?

My ibook's clicker stopped working about 30 min ago for no reason. I don't think I noticed it doing anything weird before but I could be wrong as I usually "tap" my touchpad to click on something. I restarted it thinking that the hardware just glitched it self (don't play with your touchpad when you turn your mac on, doesn't do wonderful things) After realising that I hadn't gone into the root account since my reinstall to enable touch click system wide, I had a good time trying to log in once I was at the login screen (you'd think pushing enter would select your account but apparently not). Any ideas or is ma clicker all clicked out?
