Please do not change Instructables to much. Adding classes is very good but don't turn it into a school. I have been to school. I like Instructables the way it is. In formative helpful and exciting. I don't know how others feel but this is how I feel. Thank you .

Hi I had published an instructable before. Now I would like to change the main/cover image of it. How do I do it in the new editor? Once before I changed the main photo going to publish and I lost the comments I got. I did it the wrong way. Is there any other way in the new editor? Thanks in advance

A word to the wise: keep your pocket change! I have a normal sized red plastic cup that I put all my spare change in. It was pretty full...but not to the brim, so I decided to count it tonight. Over $50 in quarters - 65 all together! What a pleasant surprise for me. I'll have to get some paper rolls from the bank so I can cash it in!

It's time to change my room around and I'm clueless now because I've changed it pretty much every single way. The picture below is how it's currently arranged, professionally done in PS. Could anyone give me any ideas for arranging it differently? My desk is a corner unit, sorry all I could draw is a square, too lazy to freehand. Thanks in advanced.

So I decided to give the knex pinwheel here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Pinwheel/ 4.5 stars out of 5. However, the rating did not change. Before I rated it it was at a 3.38, with 3 ratings. After, it was still a 3.38, with 3 ratings. I tried rating it other ratings and this did not change the rating either. Again, this shouldn't be on the top of a priority list or anything, but its definitely worth fixing.

I have been trying FOREVER to change my password but cannot! I am having to use my temporary password they sent to my e-mail... it is WAY too hard to remember, not to mention the length of it. I see a lot of other people are having the same problem- anyone found out exactly how we go about doing this? It seems like everytime I try to use and find things, I am always running into problems! I am about to just delete this site all together. It just gets too frustrating EVERYTIME I come on this web-site. Can anyone tell me if it is worth staying on here? I belong to a lot of different web-sites, but NEVER had I had this much difficulty maneuvering around any of them. I would just like someone's advice about whether or not to stay on or just go ahead and leave (honestly :) ! Thanks! Junehearn

Hi guys and girls, I just published an instructable and I had a typo in the title. I wrote Duck tape instead of Duct Tape.(dont tell me you havent done that! LOL) Anyway, so I went through and changed the title in the edittor and unpublished and republished the instructable. The link at the top of the web browser (and the final downloadable .pdf) still say DUCK_TAPE_BINDING... Its funny, but its not.. I need an admit to change it for me. I've been trying for a couple of hours now, and there is nothing I can do client-side to change it. Thanks!

I've changed my username and I had used a version with a polish diacritic character. But inside the control panel and in your profile link* "DÅºwiedziu" is converted to "DÅºwiedziu". Even if you get to view your comments trough it (in example if you have commented on your own Orangeboard https://www.instructables.com/you?show=ORANGEBOARD ) Nowhere else this bug appears. So, is this a bug or technical limitations? Do I get a refund on my one-time name change? :P * https://www.instructables.com/member/D%C3%85%C2%BAwiedziu/ which can be shown as https://www.instructables.com/member/DÅºwiedziu/ in the browser.

Hey, So I just wanted to give you guys some feedback on the changes around the site. I don't have the intent to make a whiney rant and all I say is is open to suggestions and changes ofcourse ;) So most of the changes are good. There has been some discussing about some of these changes but that's not what this topic is about. what it is about is that most of the time something get's changed there is no forum topic about it. I know you guys always like some feedback on what you do but without a proper topic made by you guys this will just result in members posting topics everywhere and you probably won't notice most of them. So what I think you should do is every time something changes on the site you should make a topic about it (ofcourse about serious things not when you change something trivial) Because I saw that the site has updated again. Not bad it actually looks good but I really don't know what I'm looking at at the frontpage. Is it the featured list or is it the popular list? And for that matter I have seen that there are many people who don't know about the new feature system that is divided into classes or even know how it works. So my suggestion is that a small topic should be written explaining the stuff the updates do every time something happends with the site or how it works. This way we (the members) understand what the new features do and you guys get feedback without having to look at 12 different topics. Michel

I noticed on the forum page overview, that the page header is always "instructables". As far as I know, it is the only page that doesn't say what it actually is. I suggest changing the header to something like "Forums - Page 1", simply for continuity and consistency.

I am not receiving emails from Instructables. I went to the "change email" tab. The line for "current email" is blank. I tried entering a "new email" and "retype email", but the problem is still not fixed. I can not find out the status of my contest entries.

I need help to find the 3 fuses in my tv so I can replace them.manufacturer says there are three of them the model # PT61HX42F100 panasonic projection. I pulled out one of them (the glass one) and took it to radioshack and it is still good. i turn the tv on and it clicks on/off and red button flashes then nothing. I was told its the fuse. How do I check the others when I dont know what they look like?

Every user has a name on a computer. not the user names that show when youre on the login screen, but other names (usually the same names) that show in command prompt and in my computer and as the computer's users name. Mine is currently set to my mother's name (she registered the computer I guess, or something like that) What I would like to know is, how can I change this name? I'd like it to display my name. If you dont know what Im talking about, open command prompt. it will say something like C:\windows:users:(yourname) the (yourname) is what I want to change.

I see my front page has changed again. Not as drastic as last time. Now maybe I'm getting too set in my ways, but I like the way the front page was. It suited me. Now I have the Classes and Feed showing. The Classes I don't mind so much, except that I have to scroll past them to get to Featured which is what I want to look at first. The Feed, well now I get "Your feed is empty! Get more inspiration every day by following your favorite channels." . YES it is because I don't use it. I don't want to deprive others of features on the front page that they might want, but I would like to have the front page appear for me the way I like. I have asked this last time and I will ask again. Why can't these front page features be selectable by the member? Even be able to reorder them?

So my friends and I are planning to sell, well...things (I'm not going to give out any details as of now, later) that incorporate small round metal disks. now in all of our prototypes weve used coins for our purposes and they work great. but for what we make we need to cut and sand coins in different ways. and my friends always tell me "its illegal to change money in any way." But I've heard that its only illegal to modify money to change or duplicate the amount its worth - like making a penny into a dime is illegal but making a penny pac man figure isnt. can anyone clarify this for me? I'm fine doing illegal things like modifying coins for personal use but if were going to sell these I want to be a little more clear as to what is going on.

Is there anyway to make a switch that switches between cat5 connections? For example, if I have 5 wires running to a rack with some switches in it, and wire one goes bad, I want to be able to turn the switch and then it will start using wire number two instead. How would I go about doing this? Any help would be appreciated :) -Tyler

Will switching the 100k resistor for a 1meg resistor in the following schematic kill my battery life? Answered
Here is the schematic: http://forum.hackedgadgets.com/viewtopic.php?t=114I switched out the 100k resistor for a higher value resistor in order to make the photocell much more sensitive. 1meg was the first resistor that would keep my LED off in dim light. (I want the LED to power on only when it's "lights out." Will this kill my 9 volt battery? Is there a better method to make the photocell more sensitive?
