I've been snobbed by Reddit!

I could not believe that I have been snobbed by a subreddit! I was accused of posting from my "blog" after I posted a few woodworking instructables. Once one of the moderators posted profane language directed towards me. I think it is their loss for not joining the best site in the universe. Shame on them!

Blocking or Banning users

I would like to have a way to block a user, or ban a user from commenting on my instructables.  Currently you can send a patch, subscribe to, or send a private message to a user.  I would like to see a block tool as well. I have had users that started discussion threads on my instructables that become offtopic, or inappropriate.  Flagging the individual comments when they post takes time.  If we could block them, then it would stop the commenting all at once. Instructables could even use this filter as a guide to see what users consistently are being blocked, and use it to ban users who are abusive.

banning good science?

Do you guys really solicit others for people to ban good science? Steve Would you please stop spamming the comment section on my Dual Axis Solar Tracker project. I had someone from the instructables staff email me today asking if I wanted to ban you from viewing my projects, or delete all your posts, or just turn off comments. It would be far easier if you just refrained. You've made your points several times over. If you wish to comment on solar trackers there are quite a few OTHER projects you could start discussions on.

Ban the posting of Instructables that use of dead animals or parts thereof

As one who respects all life, and who is sickened and repulsed by the "Instructables" which attempt to use dead animals or parts of them as some kind of demented joke, I propose that Instructables.com should ban the posting of articles dealing with or including dead animals or parts thereof. (And before anyone asks... Yes, I've been a vegetarian for 30 years. No, I don't wear leather or fur or other animal parts. No, I'm not a "wuss" - I just feel that the use or exploitation of living things or formerly living things without their consent is immoral.) eBay seems to have survived just fine with their policy of restricting the sale of animal products to a very specific list; I think Instructables should take the moral high-road and institute an outright ban on the use of animals in posts.

Banned Books Week! 9/29 - 10/6!

Did you guys even know this existed? Are you doing anything for it?Quite nerdy of me, I know, but my store has a neat display going on right now and I wanted to share. And it's good to spread the word about events like these, I think! :DSo my friend Seth and I decided to go with Alcatraz... but with books. I think it turned out fairly well considering we tried to use materials we had lying around the store. The whole thing cost less than $20.

Mythbusters! New never before seen clips! (Banned from Discovery)

Hi,Here are a few clips most of you have probably never seen before. They are banned from discovery and never actually aired on tv. They aren't even on the mythbusters site. So here for your enjoyment 2 never before seen Myths. Missing flatus experiments (Lighting Farts, Do pretty Girls Fart :) Just a quick note. There are two versions of mythbusters. One with a British announcer and one with a stupid American announcer> I hate the American announcer. He sounds so stupid. In general British people sound smarter than Americans in my opinion. I think that Americans think British sound smarter because Americans are only exposed to the only the smarter smaller percentage of the British. Why do you think British people sound smarter than Americans and what do you think of this great hidden clips.Thanks

The Kids Are Alright

Via The Sietch BlogIf I asked you if giving up your car and plane travel (permanently) was a sensible solution to global warming, most people of adult age (lets say 20+) would have a hard time doing that. However the next generation, the ones who are really going to be screwed by the ill effects of the global climate crisis see things a little differently."new generation of green teenagers are prepared to support radical measures to help the planet, says a new study.A survey of 16- to 19-year-olds by the Future Foundation found more than one in eight (13%) supported a ban on travelling by air for leisure purposes, while one in 10 say they would back a ban on cars if global warming continues to worsen.Almost 10% even say they would be prepared to take part in guerrilla activities carried out by environmental groups.Meanwhile others - primarily girls - are so eco-conscious they have developed a whole new strand of teen insecurity: "green angst", defined as anxiety about one's eco credentials. Others said environmental awareness even influences their choice of friends and partners.The report was conducted on behalf of the National Lottery to inform funding of environmental projects."It might sound like these kids have lost their minds, supporting guerrilla organizations?! But when you consider the kind of world they are going to inherit it makes perfect sense. If you knew that your parents generation was going to leave you a doomed world, you might be a little pissed. No one wants to grow up to inhabit a mad max movie.According to the study released today by The National Lottery (UK organization), half of 16-19 year olds (50 per cent) want plastic bags banned completely, 71 per cent think that unnecessary packaging on food should go, and 13% per cent want a ban on traveling by plane for leisure purposes. While a quarter (24 per cent) think there should be increases on the taxes and tolls affecting cars, one in ten is prepared to go even further and would support a complete ban on cars if global warming continues to get worse.Read more here.

Regarding brush cleaners spasifically Poly Clens

Its a favorite brush cleaner for the both of us and we're both surprised when we heard the news not to mention disappointed.  We both don't understand why its banned since there are far worse brush cleaning methods that are way more harmful to the environment. So are there any other alternatives that some one could recommend that are similar? And please don't recommend varsol est since these just don't compare and are just nasty. Thanks. :)

Your Opinions Needed

As you know (or don't know), a while ago I came up with an idea for a place to keep arguments hidden. Some of you agreed, while others did not. I terminated the War Zone after asking Eric about the idea. He said it was best if people just told him who was fighting so he could temporarily ban the offender's account. As of late, I've noticed some fighting around Instructables and I am beginning to have second thoughts about it's termination. Not to go against Eric's wishes, but I feel that banning is only a temporary solution. I think banning could work, but it might also backfire. The offenders could feel that the other got him/her banned, and worsen the grudge. If the War Zone works as planed, I believe the offenders can come to terms without being banned and hopefully stop fighting.I just want your honest opinions on this matter. It would be arrogant of me to believe the rest of the community feels this way. This is the original idea:Welcome to the Hidden War Zone. Here you can settle disputes with other members privately, without disrupting the rest of the community. Every once and a while, two or more members feud with each other. As this site retains a friendly image, other members detest the violence that ensues. Eventually these feuds move from each other's orangeboards into the public forums, dragging other members into the conflict. In order to avoid this, I have created a war zone that is sheltered from the public eye. Think of it as fighting in a barren field as opposed to a populated city. If you're going to fight, at least try to limit the number of civilian casualties. When the dust settles, truces, reparations, and atonements can take place. When you are done, please visit the Peace Forum.You must war either two ways:Chaotically battle in the comments.orKeep differing disputes separated by steps. (ie. Step one: Goodhart vs. Kiteman. Step two, Adrian Monk vs KK, Skate. et al.)If you do add a step, please hit "save and finish later" or "finish later". This will keep the War Zone hidden.If you must fight, do it here.I truly hope this will never be used, but I've made it as a precaution. Send me a PM if you wish to be a collaborator.~Spl1nt3rC3ll

Knex Chat Room

Hey I think someone started something like this already but I don't know what happened to it or if it is still active so I started my own. It's located Here or there or how about right here?So yeah come here for a quick chat. It will probably be easier than spamming topics with a useless conversation like the ones you could have in the chat. When you get there and you haven't joined Xat yet then click on your name to change it and your avatar. I'm most likely going to need at least 2-3 (depending on how many actually do come regularly) mods. There are a few rules and if you don't follow then then you will be first kicked as a warning and then banned for a day. If you still continue to break rules you'll be perma. banned from the chat.~Rules~-You may curse but only lightly and not at others. It has to stop when/if there is someone who requests it for the duration that they are there.-No fighting. You must respect everyone. If you disrespect an owner or a mod then you will automatically skip from getting a kick to getting banned for the day.-You may talk about other things but I do request you do stay relatively on topic for the most part.-Please remain in the chat while you are online. It helps me and the main reason people who aren't on a chat room are because no one else is. It starts a chain reaction of inactivity.Alright have fun you guys. I like talking to all of you personally so this will sure be fun for me to meet more of my fellow knexers.

Airplane dog carrier

I want some ideas that you may have for a carrier. background: I want to bring my Dog on an airplane but he can't ride in cargo because there is a summer ban on dogs during hot months. I must fly before the end of the ban. The airline will allow a dog in the cabin in a soft carrier, if the dog and carrier are less than 10kg. My dog is 7kg so the carrier can be up to 3kg. It must be 27cm high 40cm wide and 55 cm long or smaller problems: the foot print is fine for my dogs they could lay down comfortably, but the height is small. I want to make a telescoping carrier so it can fit under the seat on the plane, but can open up for comfort in the airport and when moving. Any ideas are welcome and I'll post it as my first instructable once I make it thanks http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelinfo/airport/baggage/pets.html

INSTRUCTABLES MEMBERS PLEASE READ!

Well, firstly, I would like to start by pointing out that people cloning other Instructable Members shouldnt be done as it may affect the real, original member. Secondly, I have seen quite alot of 'Ibles mebers being cloned. --Example: A person called Dj-Radio had cloned the real Dj Radio. Now I really don't know what this person's intentions were, but I believe that he was doing it to make the real member look bad. Recently or previously cloned members: -DJ Radio -I Am Canadian -Jollex -Dutchwarlord -Dsman -Kipkay -Killerk -Mykhailo -If there is someone please tell me and I will add to the list. On one occasion, I saw a comment that had been made by this 'Dj-Radio' person that included very bad language and it was breaking the 'Be Nice' policy. Fortunately the comment was removed by a community request but his account remained active by the looks of things. Now I believe that any form of bad language or innappropriate behaviour on any account should lead to a temporary ban from the website or even a permanent ban if needed. Anyway, Please keep this in mind in the future. Thanks, Hiyadudez.
