Is there any way to get a list of all the instructables that you've ranked favorably?

It used to be that when you ranked an instructable it went immediately into your favorites, but then they quit doing that some time ago. I'd like to have a list of all the instructables that I liked so I could review them like the favorites. Thanks for any info

Instructables appearing on other websites? Answered

Recently I have found my instructables, and those of many others, on a couple different web sites:  and I couldn't figure out exactly what those web sites are supposed to be.  They would have  a portion of the first part of an instructable, along with a  link to it on the actual instructables web site.  Both of these sites kind of looked like they might be some kind of collection of DIY type material from Instructables and other similar sites.  Does anyone know what these sites are?  It just made me curious when I came across them while Googling stuff.

How do you upload a picture for your instructable from an iPad? I can't seem to make it work.

 Wordpress had a similar issue and recently updated their iOS app to make it work, it'd be great if there was a similar solution for Instructables. The Android app doesn't appear to support Instructable creation, so that's not an option either. Seems like a great opportunity to open the community up to all the iOS users out there...

How do I link to my instructables profile with overview of what I've made and what instructions I've published?

Some sites, provide profile pages. For instructables I wish to let others to have easy overview on what "I've made" (as I've already clicked "I've made" and attached pictures), and instructions I potentially make in future. Nice addition would be to have easy with "resharing" such "I've made" or given instructables on social platforms , like G+, Twitter, etc. Anyhow, my wish for first step is to have a link to nice profile page, like e.g. this :

Answer to 'Shiggity' - How do you post a comment on Instructables? Answered

Same problem here. Bear in mind that Instructables is based in San Francisco and that it's the middle of the night in the U.S.A at the moment.  This is the time when the Instructables Robot moves the furniture around (commonly called 'system maintenance') so that Instructables is available when the U.S. wakes up. Give it a couple of hours and you should find everything is back to normal and the 'comment' or 'answer it' buttons will work as they should.

I strongly DISLIKE Instructables. RELEASE ME!

INSTRUCTABLES doesn't play fair or right. It doesn't offer the basic-most options of blocking or unsubscription. You don't let us stop receiving comments. Shame on you. Time to get up to date and the way you should be. Sheesh! Remove me from any and all membership.
