no instructables

What would you do without instructables? My internet was down for the past month, so I had no instructables. What would you do if that or some other problem happened to you?

Posted by rojo.balloon 7 years ago  |  last reply 7 years ago


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.

Ok so whats going on with the El wire contest. Wasn't it supposed to end on august 23th at midnight? Why did instructables change it to august 24th at midnight? When will the winners be announced?

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.

Non-instructing instructables

I love Instructables, but I have been running into more and more posts which are simply video or still pictures of projects which give no instructions or few useful instructions. I understand that people like to publish their finished projects, and many like to see them, but are they really appropriate as Instructables when there are no instructions? Perhaps it would be good to make an area for people who just want to show off their good work, but aren't prepared to do the step by step explanations to help others duplicate their efforts. I do like to see the different things people make and think they should be included, but I admit a bit offrustration when an interesting project turns out not to have any instructions. Since I am seeing quite a few of these, I suggest the possibility of a display area for any submission without the tool list, bill of materials, and step by step instruction available on screen or as a PDF. Thanks to all!

New Instructables

Killer Video of the Gatling Gun. I'm revealing my coming instructable. I will publish a heavy duty 16 shot Gatling gun that shoots 10 barrels per second. When 3 green pegs are in each barrel it shoots 30 bullets per second. I shot a total of 48 pegs in the video. Look for that in a month or two. Hope you can't wait. NO PICTURES YET. IT'S TRUE IDENTITY WILL REMAIN A SECRET UNTIL IT IS PUBLISHED. ALL YOU WILL SEE IS IT'S MASSIVE FIREPOWER.
