Change is good

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 .

Name Change

I am going to be changing my username to TheChemiker, because my current one, as you all probably know, sucks.  Chemiker is chemist in german, and if you don't already know, I am half german.  It should change in about a week.

I am getting annoyed by all these new "fixes" to the layout on this site. I really wish it would go back to the 2 column layout with featured on one side and popular on the other. Look so much cleaner and nicer.

Change in the Couch =)

So recently, a friend and I decided to set up a website with a forum and a community - we want to create something pretty special here. We decided to call it Change in the Couch, because, who doesn't love it when we lift up the couch cushion to look for the freaking TV remote, and we find like, seven dollars in change? I know I do. If you don't, then you're a fool - or just really tidy.Seriously though, we could use some members and fun times, so feel free to sign up and discuss :) Maybe you'll meet some cool folks.http://forums.changeinthecouch.com

Homepage change

I've just released some changes to the layout of the site.  The home page is different; we're trying how things go if we sort by the top-level categories, if that helps people find things they're interested in more easily. We have also added the ability to allow authors to 'feature' comment threads on their Instructables. You'll see a checkbox by the bottom of each top-level comment marked "Feature Comment".  Checking it will pull that comment and all its replies to the top of the comments, and keep them there (it will also close that thread to further replies so as not to be hijackable). We expect this to be used for threads that really add a lot to the Instructable, but which are in danger of becoming hidden on later comment pages as additional comments are made.  Use sparingly!  Also note that the rearrangement does require a page refresh; the thread won't pop to the top immediately. There are a couple other small layout changes as well, nothing too big.  Also we've done a little work on contest management, which will help the admins do their work more easily but doesn't show for everyone else.

data changes

I'm using Windows XP on a desktop computer Firefox I've been editing some instructibles The last one I edited was : Easy (no power tools) workspace with storage for large paper I've been following the total number of views of my ibles for some days in 'view profile'. After the last edit, I've lost about five thousand views.  The ibles all show the same number of views.  What happened?

Editor Changes

As you may have noticed, for several months now we've been testing out a change to the Instructable editing process, what we've called the new editor. It's faster and better designed than the old one, and saves your work automatically as you go along. Well, we decided it was ready for prime time, and we've gone ahead and made it the default editor for everyone. The old one is still around if you want it - just click the "Switch back to the old editor" link on the top right of the edit section. But we think you'll want to stick with the new one (all of us here at Instructables HQ have been using the new one exclusively for quite some time). Try it out if you haven't yet, and tell us what you think in the comments!

Backend changes

I've just released a new minor version of Instructables.  There are no significant front-end changes but we have done some things under the hood to allow for upcoming features.  There are a few minor bugfixes, and for Pro members, you now have a note with your renewal date listed and if applicable, a link to renew your membership. Going forward, I will write a forum in this area for each release, even if all I have to say is, "stuff under the hood".  For bugfix releases, I'll edit the topic for the appropriate release.  If you find a bug, I'd appreciate it very much if you would take a minute to file it in the bugs section. Update: Whoops, broke some RSS feeds with that last release.  Should be OK now.  Let us know in the bugs section if you are seeing any RSS problems still.

Editor change

I've just released a new version of Instructables, with a new updated version of the rich text editor. Also, we set the default for comments to not use rich text, because most comments don't need it; but you can click the 'rich text' button if you want to use formatting in a comment. The new editor looks a little different but works basically the same. As always, Pro users do have a greater range of formatting options.  It has a couple nicer features than the previous one (e.g. you can paste directly into it) and runs a bit faster.  We hope you will find it an improvement too; please let us know of any problems you may encounter with it!

Gaming is Changing

I used to like console gaming because systems rarely/never costed more than $300, it was simple, and everybody had the same stuff. There were no expensive HDTVs, broadband-requiring/expensive online play, the fanciest peripheral was the rumble pack, and your console didn't do anything except light up a power light if there was no game in it.I'm not rich, my parents have never owned a house, and with all the fancy crap that consoles require and do today, I can't afford even a Wii (not that I'd want one, the novelty has worn off). I'm not saying all these improvements in gaming are bad, but for someone like me, I just don't have the money for a shiny new 360, or even high-speed internet (I live on an acerage and there's no cable in the country) for online muiltiplayer/communication.For now, I'll just have to fondly remember having home tournaments playing Star Wars Episode 1 Pod-Racer on N64 with my friends.What do YOU think about gaming today?

Ratings do not change.

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.

Contest Voting Change

We have revisited our contest rules and decided that we had made a mistake in making community voting not be a factor in our decision-making process. As a result, we are reverting back to our previous rules, and picking half of the finalists based upon community voting. This change has already gone into effect for all contests that are currently running. It is rare that we change the rules of a contest while it is running, but we feel that this change should prove beneficial to all. This change is part of our ongoing commitment to do what is best for the members of this website.

Changing Your Username

Tired of your username? Do you want to change it? There are two ways of doing this!  But be aware you can only do this ONE TIME! To change it on your own, follow these directions. 1) Go to your "You" page, and scroll all the way to the bottom. 2) The last thing you'll see on the page (before the footer) is a large button saying "Check Availability" 3) Enter your desired username into the text block. 4) Click "Check Availability" only if you want to change your name. 5) This can only be done once by each person, so choose carefully!

Portable change table

We are running in partnership with other agencies and the City of Toronto, Parks Forestry and Recreation an accessible swim program for people with physical disabilities. Many of our participants require that they change in a lying down position and thus require a "change table". At this point we are looking at two locations that require this. Challenges include storage as storage space is of high premium at the pools. It would have to be at a height that would be comfortable for the support staff. It should be wide enough to be able to turn a person on their side safely. Sturdy enough to be able to handle up to 350lbs safely. Should be folding (for storage), and have wheels that lock so it can be moved easily. We assume wood is the best material for this (or easiest to work with), but we are open to suggestions. It should also be long enough. We have not come with specific numbers (how many inches/cm wide or high e.g.). For this some of us involved in this program need to discuss the details. However, you may have some questions too, so if you let us know we can provide answers to your questions. A few years we purchased a portable massage table. However, it is not wide enough to accommodate some of our participants with being turned safely. About Tetra Tetra is a non-profit organization that recruits skilled volunteers to create customized assistive devices for people with physical disabilities.

How to change name

Hello! I read instructables for a very long time, and today I decided to create an account. So, I've done it with my GMail, and got very strange name - "ВикторЦ1". IDK what does it mean, and how to change it. So, I always use nickname "Tsycunoff", and my real name is Victor Tsycunov, or Виктор Цыкунов in cyrillic. Saw this I thought - OK, lets create a profile manually, but i saw that name "tsycunoff" is already using. At settings pannel i didnt find form to change my nickname.So, the question is: How can I change my nickname at instructables.
