We need a "Like" button

  I think Instructables is missing a "Like" button.  There are many Instructables I see that I would want to "Like".  I know there is a favorite button, but I only use that to "Tag" the Instructable, so if there is something I wanna learn I can easily go back.    Not everyone wants to favorite a post, due to the fact they might use it for the same purpose I do.  But if we had a like button at least the creator might get more of a response on how many people actually "Liked" the Instructable.

Wrong count in facebook like button

I noticed that facebook like button started appearing again on the instructables page. But it is showing like count as 127k for all ibles. I think I know the problem and the solution. It seems that the URL for the like button is set to just https://www.facebook.com/instructables. As a software professional I have seen this bug many times and its a very common mistake. Fellows at instructables should be able to fix it quickly by dynamically setting the URL of the actual ible page if thats the intent. Please find screenshots attached Thanks

A comments button next to the collection button

I thought as there seems to be a need for recognition (don't we all need that?) perhaps we could have a comments button next to the collections button to make it easily accessible so that we can leave a comment on an instructable that we like.  It would have a tiny comment box and you wouldn't lose your place in the instructions.

Linux, ubuntu, and the like

Ok, so I'm tired of my windows system. It is starting to get boring to look at AND VERY VERY CLUTTERED. I would like to switch to ubuntu, but I'm not sure if it will play my windows games that have a lot of code and/or are graphically intensive. I know it has dual boot, and the other thing, but idk if it will play AOE3, Risk, Itunes, Windows Media player, or any of the windows programs. One of the reasons I would like to switch to ubuntu is because they have a download just for media and music production, and me being a wanna be music superstar, that is what I want and/or need right now.

I like a girl?

Ok, I'll try to explain my situation - it's a difficult but here. Since I was a kid I feared fights. I HATED fights. My father signed me up to a kickboxing class, and I liked it a lot. That's why being a ninja became my dream. I gathered resources and necessary knowledge, and I'm ready now. The problem is that I need to change my life completely - no more massive computing. No more fear from fights, or hurting myself when doing parkour. In other words, I'm adopting a whole new lifestyle and I'm having a very hard time doing it. Now that I explained my state - there are two things that push me forward - the hope that I'll make it, and a girl. I liked a girl some months ago, but she broke my heart. I gave her all I have. Now, I fell in love with her best friend. I want to tell her, but it's the summer vacation now. I don't have her phone. I asked her twice to hang out outside, but she was busy. So it's either I keep asking and tell her when we meet, or tell her over facebook. I really want her. She will really help me with finding a better life patch.

How to get a girl interested in me?

So, there is a girl that I like, but I don't know if she likes me. We not friends(Not that we hate each other, we just barely talk to each other) I don't know what she's interested in, and I don't want to act "Weird" and go, "Hi, what do you like?" Going up and talking to her would be weird and me, and possibly her, and so would just hanging out with her. I'm most likely not what you would call, attractive (boy will shoulder length hair, had to fang like teeth above my other teeth, thinks all most every one else is an idiot in some way, and only wears jeans.) If you could help, please comment, and no stupid comments please.

Another Achievements/Badge Idea

Right now, there are 3 Achievements: 1-100+ Featured, 100-1000+ Comments, and, 10K-10M Views. I think it would be nice to add another achievement option: Favorites (# of times people have clicked "favorite", all of them combined) For example: 100 Fav's (bronze-easiest), 1000 Fav's silver-(Harder) and, 50,000* Fav's (gold-Almost Impossible) * either 10,000 or 20,000, 50,000 I think these can be good

Like/Dislike button for comments.

Hello, I had an idea for the comments. There should be a like/dislike button for the comments. It would work similar to facebook, you vote once, but you can un-vote also. I have posted a picture to show you what I am talking about. Oh and PS, it would not post the like/dislike to your wall if you actually do have a facebook.

Diy Vibram-like Fivefingers? Answered

I was looking at Vibrams a bit, as I enjoy doing things barefoot, but I don't like the price they run.
