How come I can't create pdf's using my pro account? I can view all steps but no pdf's. Can anyone help me?

The option to create a PDF from an instructable.  That option is no longer there.  Any ideas?

What does you Instructables account name mean?

What does it mean? Me? I lived in New york and Pennsylvania, so New york (NY) and Pennsylvania (PA). I also lived in Ohio, so my name is sometimes NYOH.

Short term Pro account for submitting instructables

This is what I expected by registering. Why can`t I get a single full instructable if I share my own with everyone? I think this is not fair. Now I`m in doubt if I should publish here my little invention just for your profit.. Users should get say a Pro account for a week or perhaps ability to get a limited number of full instructions for each thing they share. Don`t you agree?

What happens to "grandfathered" accounts?

I have a quick question! I apparently had something akin to a "grandfathered" account here on Instructables. So even though I wasn't a Pro member, I could view all steps, add to favorites, download pdf, etc etc. I was gifted a one year pro membership, which I activated, but now I have the concern that if the membership expires, I'll lose all the abilities I had before. Will my "extra" features be removed if/when my pro membership expires? I already tried asking the person who sent the pro account code, but it's been over two weeks and I haven't heard back. Thanks for any assistance!

New Spammer Account Is Posting Ads On My And Others' Instructables

I'm getting spam from a new account called "PhysicsSupplier". Given the username and given that all of the comments posted using the account so far have been advertising an eBay account, I think it's a pretty fair to assume that it's an account created to post spam, and not to be a constructive member of a DIY community. So far, it's posted the following message twice on my latest instructable: "Instead of using a wine bottle, may I suggest that you consider using SoCal's " Experimenter's Tube " This is a heavy glass product that can be used for pressure and high vacuum experiments and the cost is low for what you are getting. It comes with a 20 page manual for various experiments and with some slight modifications it can be used for this experiment as well as others. You can obtain the tube by going to ebay and click to listing #'s 380137978058 or 230664743887. Thier website is Best of luck." I flagged the comments as spam, but I didn't get any sort of confirmation, and the robot has been giving me some trouble lately, so I decided to post here to get an admin's attention. Thanks!

Newsletter Sending to Wrong E-Mail

Ok, so I have switched to a different email address than the one I was using when I signed up on Instructables, even changed the email in my account settings to the new one. Yet my Instructables newsletter continues going to the old account. Maybe this is some kind of bug or a part of the system that has some flaw in it, I just dunno.... If you're reading this I hope you are an admin or something of that ilk that can remedy this. ~Peace Be Da Journey Man!!!

site question

Recently my latest "make" I shared here won the honor of being Featured. Thanks by the way.  :) I also won a premium service for 3 months as a result. My question is, after it expires, will my account go back to its original state? or will it be frozen? I like to know these things before I go further since I had this happen to me at another site. Also I kind of like my account and it would be disappointing if my current account would get messed up. Thanks. :)

Facebook tweaks

I've just pushed out a small set of changes, mostly around the Facebook integration.  The Facebook login button isn't so obvious, and we've now got some admin features to handle a case that turns out to happen more than we expected.  Here's what it is: Some people have both an Instructables account and a Facebook account.  Some of these use different email addresses for each.  When a person clicks the Login with Facebook button and approves Instructables with their Facebook account, one of the pieces of information we get is their email address, and we check it against our existing email addresses so as to link the correct account if we find a match.  Often there is no match, and in the vast majority of these cases the person doesn't already have an Instructables account.  So we make them one, and link it to their Facebook account. However sometimes they do have an Instructables account already, and now all of a sudden they have two!  This is confusing and wrong, and we'd been dealing with it in a rather arduous manner involving direct database changes, which is always something to avoid.  Now we've got a system for admins to handle this case with just a few clicks. Other than that, there are some bugfixes, for example around character display -- a few of our new Facebook visitors don't use the Latin alphabet!  So we handle that a little better now.  We have some more sensible default actions for new registrations, and a couple things to help our admins manage contests more easily, which they've been asking for for some time.

Dissatisfaction with One Aspect of the Pro Membership Change

Hi Instructables, First and foremost let me say that I do enjoy your site. The entire reason I signed up for a free account in the first place was to be able to view all the steps on one page. As I logged in today, I viewed the comparison of Free vs. Pro, and saw that 'View all steps on one page' is no longer a feature of a free account. This feature is very handy when you want to view the steps quickly and browse through what the project is. Please restore this function to the Free account if possible. That said, I do understand the need to monetize. Don't get me wrong. I just feel that this one benefit for a free account wouldn't be so bad. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Sincerely, Will Shattuck

pro account ???????

The idea of needing to pay to access some features of the site seems to conflict with the nature of the community on this site. After all we are all DIY'ers trying to make quality things for little money. Separating those who can afford to pay for an account from those who come to this site to learn how to be frugal ( because they don't have money to fritter away on things like pro accounts) will only devalue the community. I know the argument of "everything needs to make money some how" does not really stand here as separating the community will eventually lead to reduced following of the web site, decreasing the money available through advertising. Net effect of this is a poor online community that still is not making any real money. My thoughts are that the moderators etc should scrap this new system and protect the Instructables as we know and love it. anyone agree?

Instructables app behavior (Bug?)

I've been using the Ibles app on an Android (V 4.3) phone for a month or two. There's a lot to like about the app experience. For instance, the app makes it super easy to follow other users who are following your account... Super easy to click "follow" on many accounts in one session. I'm not really a social networking person, by choice, so I never paid much attention to following. Never cared about the number of followers--or hits, for that matter. I'm sure this is a breach of social networking etiquette. Guilty.  So-- it's a pain to "mass follow" other users in the browser interface (yeah, wouldn't be problem if I'd kept current with following)--go to you:subscribers, click on the account, select follow, move backwards to the you:subscribers page, repeat ad nauseam, with all the load times associated. On the app--load the followers page, then click, click, click on the icon next to each account. Pie easy. But there are some odd app behaviors: One: the app Followers section doesn't sync with the normal online interface. I.E., more followers in the browser online than on the app. Two: the last "follower" in the list doesn't display correctly. Shows as "not followed," when clicking on the user's account shows that I am indeed a follower of that account. Maybe there's a sync lag that would explain this...if so, it last several days.
