Someone on LDR!!!

I'm new to this site, I'm interested in someone in a long distance. We both live 1900 miles apart I live in New Jersey and She lives in Central America. I first known her who's actually beknownst to my Step-Siblings of mine while she still is and was an employer at a Teen Clothing Store about two years ago which a Step-Sibling of mine owns the place. Just a month ago just hours before My parents and I we're to go back home as our Spring Break Came to a conclusion, We exchanged phone numbers so we can reach contact after I asked her's. Then weeks later I called her home and she's only answered once. I called once again many times the problem is that she doesn't still answer the reason for this is cause she barely uses her phone due to the High Violence there. I know the phone number to her job but the problem is that I don't want to get her in trouble since her boss isn't there all the time. Some think that She's rejecting me and she's not because she did gave me her number. If she wasn't interested in me She wouldn't give me her number. She doesn't even know how to use the internet or chat. Another thing is that She doesn't have a Home Phone Either. I plan on sending her maybe a letter but I want to see if u can tell me if I could also give her a Friend card or anything at all so she can cheer up. I plan to see her once again when we come back there this August and i'll tell her the truth if not I might go on. She only lives with her brother and Sister. She and Her sister work together there. Sometimes I feel confused that I really want to get to know her. Some think she has a boyfriend but she told me she's not cause they said that she does but I really can't buy what othes might say so It's good to feel with me to drop some comments. I'll just enjoy life as always doing what I do during my normal routines. I haven't thinked of her much then before I will keep that as a promise. We'll thanxs anyway!!!

Please try to add a "sort by date" or "date range" to your instructable search

Or possibly just place the date an instructable was submitted in its info when you look at the results of a search - it would help Thanks

Is there any way of changing the posting date on an instructable? i was working on one and it's post date is when i started it rather than when i published it. or, is there a way to look at instructables by publishing date rather than posting date so that i can easily keep up with what is new?

Speaking of which, those days-old comments didn't get a timely answer, because I didn't hear about them.  That makes me seem tardy and poorly mannered, something which I try not to be (call  it a cultural thing).

No posting dates listed on Instructables?

Looking at some current Instructables in various categories, I don't see any posting dates listed on the project pages. When did this start? Is there a secret way to learn the date? One of my biggest peeves on the web is press releases (or worse -- news stories) posted without a date -- one of the most important pieces of information! (the five W's of journalism, etc.). Or is this just a Chrome issue?

Bug -- editing an I'ble changes the publication date

I just noticed that editing an existing, and already published, Instructable changes the publication date to the date of last edit.  That was not true in the past, and I am fairly sure it is not the behaviour intended by the Instructables staff.  It has, as you can guess, several unexpected side effects, some of which circumvent established policies and rules.

Publication Dates Changing

Over the past six weeks, I have tried to keep to my usual post schedule of Fridays. However, after posting, I have found that without fail the instructables' marked post dates rollback to 1-2 days prior to when they were actually posted and continuously read wrong thereafter. I can only guess what it might do for contest entries and the like.

Date of my Ible got changed

I uploaded an instructable today (12 October), and for the first bit (at most an hour) it showed on page 1 of recent. Then a few hours later when I looked, it was at page 4 and the date suddenly was 9 October. It isn't a big instructable, so I won't lose anything from it, but I am wondering how such a thing could happen. One day I can understand, with timezones and everything, but 3 days seems a bit odd. It doesn't seem like this is supposed to happen. The instructable in question is:

Forum's publication date after a postponed publication

Hi !Forum's preview and postponed publication is cool. Thanks for those two features. =o)However, I've noticed something weird :- when you don't publish your forum immediately after creation, and if you keep it unpublished for several days, when you'll publish it, it will be published with the date of its creation (not the date of the actual publication).It is thus required to "bump" it so it actually "appears at the surface".I've previously noticed a similar problem with instructables : when they are unpublished by someone from the staff (because not yet complete or whatever), once achieved and republished, it is republished at the date of first publication instead of the date of the second one. This means, thus, that this instructable will never appears at the surface neither ...I hope my explanations were clear.=o)

Incorrect Publish Dates

I recently created several Instructables from some of my youtube tutorials, and was surprised to find that they didn't hit the "recent" list.  After some investigation I noticed that nearly all of them had a publish date of several days earlier than I actually published them which is causing them to show up so far down the recent list that they are unlikely to ever be seen.  Seems like they are all two days early.  Everyone of my published instructables listed as Nov 19, 2014 was actually published today Nov 21, 2014.  Infact the 19th even pre-dates the creation of some of the video content.

Green Electronics contest closing date/time clarification

Hello! I'd just appreciate some clarification on the entry submission closing date/time for the Green Electronics contest (hopefully I'm not missing something obvious). On the contests main page, it says "Closes Midnight May 31, 2014" but in the fine print in the contest (under "View Entries" and "Official Rules") it says "Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, May 30, 2014." Shouldn't this be May 31 instead? For other contests, the close date is the same date as listed on the contests main page -- for example, the Made By Bees contest says it "Closes midnight June 30, 2014," and if you view the fine print in the contest it says "Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, June 30, 2014." So, it looks like there may be a mistake for the listed closing date/time for the Green Electronics contest, but I could be just misunderstanding something, and I just want to make sure I know the exact closing date (since I may be cutting it close due to traveling). Thank you in advance for your assistance!

quick question about dating

Anyways I ran into one of my highschool friends on myspace. We dated once in college, we both went to two different schools, (6 years ago) and pretty much went our separate ways. Anyways i asked her out on a date to the movies on 13 FEB and she said sure. My question is I can get chocolate real cheep from work (at cost) should I give her a box of chocolate or will that be too romantic. Valentines day is on the 14th and I dont want to be too romantic, incase she turned into a psycho. What would be an appropriate gift (if any) to give someone that you havent seen in 6 years.?

Scholarship dates change

I'm not official by any means, but I've been waiting like an impatient kid on Christmas morning for Saturday, which used to be the "notification by" date for the create scholarship contest. However, a look at the rules this morning says: "All submissions for this Scholarship sub-contest must be posted by June 30, 2007. No later than July 9th, 2007, scholarship winners will be notified by email." So they bumped the submission date back two days and gave themselves a week to think about it. I didn't see anything like this before, so I thought I'd let everyone else know (especially if you're like me and dying to know the results of the mini-contest.)

Not a bug, but...

Years ago I am seeing a feature of Instructables that works bad (IMHO):  I will try to explain it with my "yes bwana" English, please tell me if you don't understand any expression. The publishing date and time is apparently the only used to register and ordering instructables. But there is in reality another date-time, those of showing in the web page, after the revision process. When I choose ALL RECENT daily (my default option, many times each day), I see the last instructables showed in the page, until I see others previously seen.  That method shows almost all new instructables, since there are eventually others that where published a day or two before today, and they are some pages below. but showed today.   In fact, some my instructable has been showed one or two days after its publishing, and it was possibly missing by many persons. I still think Instructables is one of  the better (or the best) managed site in the web, but this features is a little annoying, because it forces me to look some days back, to avoid lost some very interesting thing. That happened to me more than once. The solution is conceptually easy, I don't know how hard it is technically: To add to the database the showing_date_time as an attribute of each instructable, and ordering RECENT by that date-time. It is not valid to replace "date-published", because that date-time is essential in case of authorship dispute.

I recently published my BikeGen instructable and made an update to my Bike Generator instructable. After updating Bike Generator, I hit the publish tab on the Bike Generator editor, because I thought that would be needed for the updates to be added to the instructable, and then hit Save Changes. It seems that Bike Generator was republished with a new published date but this was not what I meant to do. Also when you look at the number of instructables I have on any of my instructables it says 9 but I only have 6. What happened here, did I do anything wrong?
