Following members?

Please advise me on how to stop following someone's Instructables. I picked "follow" but I don't like a blanket approach. I prefer to browse.

Strange Follower

I've just gained my most unexpected Twitter follower to date: Elizabeth Emanuel, co-designer of Princess Diana's wedding dress. Now, I'm not complaining about her following me, I'm just puzzled about why.  I'm not exactly known for my fashion sense. Any ideas? My Twitter. Her Twitter.

Following groups

We just had a site update, with this you can now follow a group! How is this different from joining? well if you want to just get updates from a group without being listed as a member, click the follow button, you'll get the same updates as people who are a part of the group. we also changed how groups are populated, and you'll see that the recent sort now shows you last added to a group. wayyyy cooooollll! We have an extra special surprise for next week, hold onto your pants!

Can't find my followers.

I know this has been asked before, but I have not seen a response. (at least, not from anyone working at Instructables)  How do I find the list of my followers?  I have several new followers and I like to look at their pages as well to see what they build, or are interested in.  Can anyone at help me with this?

How many people followed the instructable and built the item

Hello, I was thinking it would be nice to have a button for an instructable that says something like "I have followed the guide and made this item" Then show a count of how many people have actually made it. It would be interesting to see how many people have made (Which are really good, I suggest you make them!) which I saw in an instructables news letter, which I don't see any more, I wonder why. Anyway, There are also a few electronic items that if someone else has made it, and then makes a comment saying it works or something, that would be good to know. Maybe they can have a little tag like how the author has (author). BK

spam followers

Hi everyone, just thought I would ask if anyone else has had a rash of followers lately, all with the same profile, that  looks something like this. About:Hello myself Dennis from UK and m 23 years. Me and my father lives in UK and works in UK's famous company j4packaging. We are sale many products such as fragile label,mouth mask so on. If someone need to these product contact on my page. Location:Birmingham, England, UK Joined:Dec 13, 2015 Sometimes some of the details are different, and Ive had 12 of them over that few weeks. More of an annoyance than anything but just letting everyone know in case you want to do something about it. I will email the support guys too. if you look at the last 12 on my profile its the photo shopped guys that are the spammers (these have all been deleted since I first wrote the post)

Bug: number of followers is incorrect

Hi there! I just wanted to report what I believe is a bug. I noticed that on my profile, the follow button says i have 32 followers, but the tab in the lower left says I have 30. I counted, and found that I do have 32 followers. I have noticed that it was off by 1 before, but I assumed that the follow button was higher because it was telling me what it would look like if i followed myself, or something like that. However, with the difference being 2 people, it cannot be that. Although it is a little thing, it is kind of annoying. I am running a windows 7 computer, using Chrome.

Username truncated if user has followers.

   Example over THERE ------> I have been truncated to 'AndyGadge' in the Info box because the Followers box has displaced my name and the date published to the right.  (FireFox 4.0.1 on Win7) Personally, I am totally against the prominence the Followers feature has been given and would like to see it revert back to the old Subscribers with a less 'in your face' appearance.

I just started making instructables. I have some questions.

Hello my name is Jazmin aka Dready Jazz. I've had an instructables account for a while but I just started making them myself. I really like it and I am working on more, I just had a couple of questions. How do you get more followers, my instructables are very good, They just haven't gotten over 200 views and I know they could, My other issue is that I really wanted to get feed back on them hardly at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am here as much to show my design as to get involved with a community of artist... Anyway thank you in advance for your help. :) Oh and if you want to take a look at my instructables here's the links:

Is it rude not to follow someone who followed you?

Hey guys. coolcrafter101 here. This question has been bothering me, so I thought I'd ask y'all. Is it rude not to follow someone who followed you? As a general rule I follow anyone who follows me, and then some. But my friends have been talking about arguments they have been having with people who don't follow them back ect. So is it or isn't it?

Following a question not staying.

I noticed that lately when I click the follow button on a question, then go back to the main listing and then go back to the question it is not marked as following it. It does not appear to be something in my browser since I don't get notifications of posts being made in the question. I have re-clicked follow several times and it shows it as following but after leaving the question it resets it back. Is there a limit as to how many questions you can follow? Have I hit the limit since I follow a lot but never un follow them?

Unable to follow someone

I don't seem to be able to follow contributors any more :(  On my PC, I'm using I.E 10.  I've cleared the browser cache, and explicitly added the instructables site to always allow cookies (which are turned on anyway).  I've also logged off and on several times.  If I click on a the follow button, it briefly displays the 'UNFOLLOW' option and the windows timer mouse icon, before reverting to 'FOLLOW' again.  On my Android phone, I have the Instructables app.  It allows me to follow someone, but does not add them to the list of people I already follow.  Is there a limit on the number of people I can follow?  I'm currently following 24 contributors.  Can you help please?

Voltage follower for the INA125?

I need to use a voltage follower that runs off a 9 v battery (actually, two batteries so +- 9V is available), from the output of a Burr-Brown INA125 amplifier to the analog input of a DATAQ data acquisition unit. The DATAQ is running at about 1000 data points per second.  Is there a particular op-amp that would be useful in such an application?  Or would something besides an op amp be more useful?  Thanks!

But I noticed some of the finalists didn't follow this part of the rules ( Anything goes for this contest, so long as you give credit where credit is due by linking to the original Instructable, share step-by-step instructions for how you reinterpreted the project, and leave an “I Made It!” comment on the the original author’s project page.)    I guess I'm just wondering how that got past all the judges?

Follow the bouncing ball!

An article in PhysicsWorld reports on a novel technique for measuring the acceleration due to gravity. The researches used a cloud of ultra-cold atoms and bounced them off a series of upward laser pulses. By measuring the timing of the bounces they could measure g with better than 1 per mil precision.

Auto-follow film technology

Does anyone know if technology exists whereby an object can be filmed and followed by a robot camera when moving at speed (i.e. with motion sensors)? Without the use of a tag on the object being filmed (i.e. like those used by Pixio and Soloshot)? Bearing in mind that the object would be contained within a specific radius.

follow-up capacitor Q's ? Answered

I am amazed at all the great responses I got with my last question, thank you all! :D Though now I have a few more: 7) Should I try to learn how to work with complex impedance (capacitors, resistors, and inductors in all sorts of weird configurations) Also, can I treat reactance in general as a resistance when looking at capacitors in series or parallel with resistive loads and stuff? For example, can I simply add up Xc, Xi, and R for a total impedance? Or do I have to worry about phase shifts and stuff?  8) Is it OK to say that "Q" or charge is a more theoretical physics concept and is not too important with practical electronics? (C, V, and I being more of the focus and "ignoring" Q is OK?) 9) I have added a few of the "slides" and sneak-peaks to my upcoming video. If anything is wrong don't hesitate to nitpick and point it out! 10) capacitor fall under 2 major categories, polarized and nonpolarized. 10a) [under the 'polarized' branch] Electrolytic and tantalum capacitors are used for bulk filtering, but are evil and do not tolerate overloads particularly well. Especially tantalums. They tend to be available in huge capacitances, but can be "leaky" and have high ESR and series inductance. 10b) [under nonpolarized branch] Ceramic capacitors are the most common type of capacitors, and come in a few types. Generally used for local decoupling. They are pretty robust and tolerate overloads. Film capacitors find more use in high voltage applications, have lower leakage, better high frequency performance, and certain types have self-healing properties allowing them to tolerate overloads and surges the best. Mica capacitors are generally the most stable, with the lowest leakages, so they find uses for more critical analog applications.

Macbook Pro and Following Heartbreak

I have a problem and the people on Instructables are so smart I am hoping someone can advise me.   A year ago I used my Macbook Pro in my kitchen and happened to leave it on the kitchen table over night. I never did this before.  We had a huge storm that night and my roof leaked.  I had it repaired following Hurricane Ike and it had been fine but then something happened (I got it fixed - kind of like locking the gate after the cows get out)  and that one night was the only time I ever left my computer there or had a roof leak that was pretty bad and covered my entire table with water. When I saw my table and computer I thought I would fall out!  I picked up the computer and water ran out of it!  I didn't know then to take the battery out and let it dry out completely and I don't know if it would have worked anyway.  I whined for a day or two and then bought a new Macbook Pro.  Now I can get it to power up and it seems like it is working but there is no display. First I wonder is there a way to get that computer to work again.....Second - Is there a way to recover my videos and pictures even if that computer never works again so I can have the pictures of my best friend who recently passed away and have the pictures and videos of the wildlife I love to photograph? I am a principal so I take a lot of pictures and videos at school and make videos for students and staff.  Previously I was the assistant principal and my best friend was my principal and I have a lot of video and pictures of all the fun stuff we used to do just on off time or at school.  My best friend and principal ended up with a brain tumor and passed away a few months ago. She was young and vibrant and larger than life. The staff I inherited from her would love to see some of our videos and pictures from the days when she was healthy and our principal.  It really bothers me that I can't get my videos and pictures for both reasons, the loss of the videos that would remind me and my staff of fun times with my friend at school and because of the animal videos I feel I have lost that I would love to be able to see and use again.I spend my free time making videos and doing animal photography. I have 10 game cameras set up on my property in East Texas and I love to watch the animals.  All of my previous pictures, video, on that hard drive. I removed it and I can save to it but I can not open up the picture and videos on it. The new Macbook has updated software and I have not been able to open up iPhoto, IMovie, or IDVD and get my my pictures and videos from it.    I really wish I could get those images and videos back.   I now have that hard drive in a hard case to be used as an external hard drive.   If you read all of this, Thank you! If you have any helpful ideas I would love to hear them.  If you have any interest in the type of videos I make feel free to visit my Youtube channel at  Foxy was my first great dane and I was crazy in love with that dog hence the username!   Thank you! Amy
