It would help if we had some actual furry instructables to add to the group. If you find one or make one, lemme know, and I'll add it. Generally anything related to the fandom is what I'm looking for.

I have set myself a challenge of running a pocket radio on the power from one candle alone. I think it is possible but have found no patents or other attempts on the internet. I wondered if it might be suitable for an instructable competition.

Hello, I published and instructable, called 9 millimeter machine pistol, a while ago, it shows up on my profile as published and I wanted to know how many people have seen it. Also I wanted to know why I don't see it on here or really anywhere.

Instructables in 2005?

Anyway, this is an awkward question, as there are very few that know (not including admins). How did Instructables look in 2005? how was the homepage? what did the editor look like? were there forums back then? admins, you are more than welcome to answer, as i do not know anyone who joined in 2005 that is not an admin. And Kiteman, If you happen to have screenshots from when you first joined (2006), you are more than welcome to post them.......

Instructables Book

We've published a book of Instructables!Order your copy of The Best of Instructables Volume 1 here!See the latest news about The Best of Instructables Volume 1 here.I just got the contract worked out with O'Reilly Media/MAKE, who is publishing the book. Details are still being finalized, but the book will look something like this: 75 (maybe?) full Instructables and 50 (maybe?) mentions (author, intro image and text maybe?) of Instructables in a community-choice section. The Instructables in the community-choice section will be chosen by a month-long contest open to Instructables published at any point in the past. The top Instructables by votes in the contest will be included. The full Instructables will be chosen by the people at Instructables, the O'Reilly and MAKE editors, and using the results of the book contest. If your project is selected, we'll ask for your permission and give you a free copy of the book. We're hoping to have it out in time for the Austin Maker Faire in October.These details are likely to change, but I'm so excited that I wanted to share them even at this early stage. We'll do a formal announcement when we know more, so consider this your sneak-preview. Updated: Number of full Instructables from 100 to 75. 2008-07-03 Update: Right now, it looks like we'll be including approximately 50 Instructables in the community choice section of the book as chosen by our Instructables Book Contest. This section will have 8-10 Instructables per page and each Instructable will have the author, title, intro text and image. Everyone mentioned will receive a free copy. As usual we'll be eliminating fraudulent votes.75 full Instructables will be included as chosen by editors at Instructables, MAKE, and O'Reilly. Obviously, we'll be watching the results of the contest closely to make sure we didn't miss anything!Since print and internet are such different mediums, part of the selection process is finding Instructables will exceptional images and well-written text. Since any Instructable can be included, now is a great time to make sure your images are top-notch and maybe add a few more, if you can. 2008-09-01 Update: If your Instructable is in the top 50 sorted by user votes, you are definitely in the community choice section. Depending on how many of those 50 are included as full Instructables in the book, the community choice section may include more Instructables. We are working hard at getting everything organized and ready for the book launch in October.

Leaving Instructables

Hey everyone, I have built many projects and gained many followers. After building many projects out of knex, I think i may be coming to the end of my building with knex. I don't want this to end but whenever I try to build nothing ever seems to work. Well i hope to have at least 3 more instructables up, maybe less or more. I just don't have the inspiration to build anymore and I hate to stop building. What do you think i should do? -KnexFreak360

Instructables Imageboard !! =]

Hai guys,I really hope you remember me lol!Well anyway haven't been on Ibles for quite a while ! (about four months) O_oShame as this website is awesome, but being busy prevented me from posting frequently on here!However while I was away for a bit, some free time that I had allowed me to dabble in website design. Resulting in me creating a site. Woot.This gave me an Idea, since I use alot of forums, how about letting the communities that I talk to use a catergory at my site dedicated to topics that interest them.So the instructables community, how would you feel about an Instructables imageboard dedicated soley to this site.-It would allow you guys to freely and unlimetedly talk there, -If you wanted any seperate catergorys under the Instructables imageboard I would put them up-It would allow you guys to post preview pics of your projects on there, and of course build them on here when they are posted- Any problem that someone ecounters building a project, someone else will be quickly and easily be able to help them, via pics and info- It would be a seperate thing to the Ibles site - so they would be able to use the ibles board similtaneously.- Also there would be no need to register for the site, as I will use tripcodes instead - meaning much faster chatting.- It would be faster than orangeboards, and more free.So how about it Guys , do you think you would like that?If yes, I will do this all free of charge, in the hopes that you guys will be regularly visting the Imageboard. =]I would also probally be able to make the board within this week. Then give you guys a url. =]If that is a yes?

Eric loves community-building, loud music, and industrial design...He... just... wrote this article. Well, not just now. Before. I found it on Google when I typed in GorillazMiko.But wow, just click the link and read the article, it meant so much to me.Here's some:Instructables user GorillazMiko is.. I don't know what to say. He's awesome. He's on the site almost all the time, reporting bugs, putting encouraging comments on every new Instructable that gets posted (that can be up to a hundred, some days), and making cool ones, himself.He does all this, and he's 13 years old. He's trying to get his parents to bring him to the office, the next time they have a family vacation in San Francisco. His parents must be a little confused as to why their son wants to visit some company while they're on vacation.

Instructable Not Publishing

Last night I published my instructable called "As Cute as a Button" Magnets. I noticed this morning it hadn't gotten any views, and I looked for it on "Recent Instructables" and in the Living section and could not find it. I unpublished and republished the instructable, but still it has not shown up anywhere in the "Explore" area. Is it just taking a while to get published or what?

Is there any "web-tender" way to view the instructables site? For instance, it would be really cool if I could pick from a list of "stuff" I have floating around my desk, and get a set of instructables back that have that stuff listed in the items list. Just a thought! :)

Instructables Search

I'm sure I used to be able to search Instructables with keywords.  Now I only see a "google" search input, which seems to do a Google search across the web, not specific to Instructables. Has something changed?  My browser (IE 8) also seems to cut off or overlap some of your web page objects, so I don't know if there is an Instructables-specific search input that has been covered up or something.
