Not sure what the deal is, but I've tried this multiple times over the last few hours with no luck.

During my last 'ible I ran into an issue of not being able to publish it when using a browser and ended up publishing through the mobile app which worked fine. Here's a picture (clickable for full size): Required info: OS: Win7 Ultimate SP1 32bit Browser: Chrome Version 38.0.2125.111 m Place: The last page before 'ible gets published Reproduction: happened every time I tried publishing in browser no matter the way I tried to do it. Didn't happen on app. Didn't try other browsers. I don't exactly know the cause of it, but do have some ideas as I did some things I don't usually do. 1 - changed the category of 'ible I pre-selected in the beginning of creation. Probably not the reason since it saved and later published properly in this category. 2 - tried to set licence to PD which is not my default before publishing. Then tried setting PD as default and publishing with it. Then tried publishing with my usual default CC BY NC SA. Nothing helped, but I think there might be something here, since I'm not able to change the type of licence even after I've published it.

Hello everybody I have not posted a KNEX gun for a while and have not made anything that worked that good but this is something I made a month ago that failed but I kind of liked how it looked and some other aspects of it. I know this isn't innovative or anything but it looked kind of cool and I have not seen something just like this before. Now what made this a failure was first the turret was held on by a rubber band. This could have been fixed if I just put a longer rod in but then that would look weird. Also this has a slide trigger that I came up with but I did not take the time to fix it so that it worked right and it was mounted wrong so it rubbed on my hand when I held the gun.

Ok I made my first instructable the other night albeit not that great an instructable, but i had to start somewhere. Anyway i finished it and clicked the publish now or whatever button and that was fine. Now i decided to check if anyone had seen it so i used the search section and what do you know? it didnt show up. Anyone know how i messed up? O btw my instructable was named "Burn Yourself Safely" spread the word. = ]

This is a thread for everyone to post pictures of their failed and/or unfinished projects. That way when people need ideas for something to build they can come to this thread and find someone's project and build it and improve on it and maybe make it work. There is one rule in this thread: IF YOU USE SOMEONE ELSE'S IDEA/MECH/PROJECT, YOU MUST GIVE THEM CREDIT. I will start the thread off with some pictures of my uncompleted projects. Here is the link to the album on photobucket because I find it easier to upload them there: http://s247.photobucket.com/albums/gg159/jollex/Uncompleted%20Projects/ Guest password is knexinnovation

It is officially impossible for anybody to live their full lives without failing. The reason why is because if you never fail, you fail at failing. Makes sense?I just posted this cuz I was bored, and I'm rollin' in mah six-fo' =P

Really digging this poster about failing and moving on to failing better. It's from a quote by Samuel Beckett and it's letterpressed onto recycled paper. Still trying to decide if it's worth the $46 to have it shipped to the US and then a little more to have it framed. Hmm. Fail Better Poster

Some of the best advice I've received was to "fail faster." You want to get the mistakes out of the way, learn from them, and move on as quickly as possible. Don't live in fear of failure as you'll be stuck before you leave the starting gate.It's been good advice and in the spirit of embracing failure, here's a Fail blog that collects Fail images from all 'round the Internets. Enjoy. The FAIL Blogvia BoingBoing

I receive the newsletter through Yahoo Mail and everything is OK. But this e-mail is redirected to Outlook, directly into my computer. In Outlook, only the first (main) link works. The rest doesn´t. This problem have already happened around a year ago.

Here's a blog I can totally identify with: CraftFail. For all those times when things don't go according to plan. That happens to be most of the time and hats off to those who are willing to share their embarassing stories with others.As one of the entries says: "We tried. We really did."

I was browsing ibles yesterday, and I came across this stunning piece of stupidity: Person 1: "d - b" (some interesting ASCII art) Person 2: "How do u get the backwards b" Me: "It's called D" It got me thinking afterwards that I should make this forum. So, what are the best examples of fails, stupidity, and general ignorance that you have witnessed?

Hey guys. Well, after seeing BM's latest Bullpup (L85A2), I thought I'd try my hand (again) a a new Bullpup. I intended to build an MTAR from Black Ops 2, but as you can see by my title, I failed / was unhappy with what I had. If you'd like to, go ahead and finish it. -The Red Book of Westmarch

I'm getting the feeling the people running this website don't really care about fixing it's problems, twice now I've tried to post a new topic and it fails to even show up, if these problems are not fixed and my 3rd attempt fails I will be contacting admins to remove my content.

Hi, i disassembled my full-automated coffeemachine as the push buttons for programs failed. The buttons are a line of rubber and the contacts on the platine are toothed while each rubber contact got tiny plates that bridge the contacts on the platine. I guess that the contact plates lack of conductivity - any suggestions what i can do to improve the conductivity? I thought bout buying contact foil and glue it over the rubber contacts, but i don't know, if this is the best solution.

People don't often post 3-layered guns, so I thought I would try one, and (as you can see by the title) it did not turn out so well. It got maybe 40 ft. of range, but that was an accented, as the gun never shot again. It was a good attempt, and is not too ugly, but, it is still a failed project. I just thought I would share it with you guys. Keep an eye out for more projects from me! -E Pluribus Unum

When I try to upload pictures using the new style flash based uploader I get the message "http error" for each file and they won't upload. This uploader has never worked for me. Old uploader works fine. Using Firefox on Linux - no luck with other browsers either.

All I want to do is simply make a MMPR Green Ranger Helmet. No where on instructables is there a tut, nowhere on youtube is a tut, nowhere on google is a tut. It's always Halo.The balloon trick didn't work for me. I blew the balloon as big as it would go and it didn't even cover my head at the end. So I wasted a balloon, 2 hours, and alot of newspaper to fail. Can someone please do me a tut so I can do this? I will be grateful as hell.

This is a failed rail gun I made. It looks pretty cool and has a nice trigger but the transfer mech in the gun does not work. I will not be working on this any more so if somebody want's to use this idea then give it a shot! I broke 4 red connectors when testing this gun out so i'm pretty pissed at this thing. Also I feel that I won't be posting any more KNEX guns since it has lost my interest. I do plan on posting more KNEX stuff but just not any more guns.

Any good maker will tell you to accept and embrace the process of iteration. And a natural product of that iterative process is failure. You learn a lot by trying something, being less-than-successful, and then attempting it again. It's the act of picking yourself up and trying again that helps dissolve the fear associated with failure. I'm interested to see your most epic failures! Share photos, videos, and stories of your fails from project builds: Slumping, cracking, burned, melted, misshapen… it's all part of the learning process. Can't wait to see how you messed up. :)

This is the place you can share all those instructable fail moments and help new guys like me avoid them. Its also the place were all your waisted time and effort can at least be worth a laugh for someone else. So if you ever made something stupid, done something wrong or just waisted some time this is were you need to be. Please be respectful and have fun!

Hey guys, Here is one of my more recent builds, but it didn't turn out like I had planned, so I leave it for you guys to finish up if you want. I don't have much time to elaborate, but if you have any questions, leave a comment below. -The Red Book of Westmarch

My friend told me about this earlier today and I thought it was brilliant: Cheese has lots of holes. The more holes you have, the less cheese you have. The more cheese you have, the more holes you have. So logically, the more cheese you have, the less cheese you have. This got me thinking and I'd quite like to see if anybody has anything similar to this logic fail.

Hi, I have copied the correct code from YouTube (embed video) to Instructable post, give it a title, a little text underneath and attached a thumbnail image. My problem is it won't publish at all. I click publish button, but it does nothing. I should mention this is the share a video option on the site. (Don't have a link as it's stuck in draft.) Any help or advice appreciated, Go Repairs

I have had this problem for years, yet I am only now reporting it because I have been a more frequent visitor to Instructables as of late. Every time I login with the correct password, I get a message saying that it is incorrect. So I take the 5 minutes to reset my password, but when I logout and then try to log back in (using the password that I just created) I get the same error message, saying that my password is incorrect. It's taken me a while to post something about it because it only takes about 5 minutes to reset my password. Still though, I shouldn't have to go through the trouble every time I want to login.
