List of categories??

This is a question about the site, not about the @#$% forums! IS there a PAGE that LISTS all of the CATEGORIES for INSTRUCTABLES somewhere? I don't understand why there isn't just a button on the home page...is it inconceivable that one might want to choose from a list of categories of instructables to look at? I don't live here so every time I visit, I'm like a new visitor and confined to the instructables that are listed in emails BECAUSE I CAN'T FIND A @#$% LIST OF CATEGORIES TO BROWSE AND CHOOSE WHAT I WANT TO LOOK AT FOR MYSELF!! #@$%!!! The concept is SO good that the inability to find a list of categories is INFURIATING!

A "To Do List"

How cool would it be to have a "to do" list on here? I love the favorites feature, and agree with other posters that it needs to have a way to easily organize your favorites or search within your favorites. (I'm not sure about all it has, can't afford a pro membership yet) But, for those with pro, I could see how a to-do list would be sweet, where you can add an instructable to your "to-do" list and go back later and prioritize the items within it. Kinda like how Amazon has the priority wish lists.

Recent list

There used to be a way, with a couple of clicks from the home page that would give you a chronological list of the most recent projects regardless off the category. Is there a way to do that now without clicking the recent button in each specific category, but to include all categories? Thanks for your help.

listing crafts

Other than knitting and sewing what would be crafts? I do woodworking ,metalworking as craft ,i do not think that those would quantify for this. Any ideas ? to expand this ie. leatherwork? wood carving? I am the guy that build stuff not the guy that thought it up.

Instructables Friends List!

I've been a member of this site for a while, and I've noticed that some of the users here are very close. Wouldn't it be cool if each user could have a list of the other members of the community that they interact with the most?Perhaps it could be linked to the new chat room, or go even further and create an easier PM system much like some popular instant-messaging programsPost your thoughts on the matter, would you use it?

Chemistry equipment list?

Hello Fellow Instructablers!       Its been a while since I have made a post but I am back with a burning question!  I have a great interest in science and chemistry and always wanted to preform experiments seen on page of authors like Nurdrage for example. But I have never had the required equipment or chemicals to do these. I have taken a high school chemistry class and gotten my stuff down and now am prepared to take on the challenge of the lab. I have a birthday coming on on the 24th and my parents said if I wanted to get into chemistry I should ask for equipment and chemicals or what I need for my birthday.      So I will, but I need help. From an experienced chemist or someone who has done this before. Can anyone give me a list of basic-intermediate lab equipment that is needed for most experiments? I don't want to get one of those chemistry kits for kids since those are so restricted and only let you do the experiments given to you, not very fun So I want to get free use equipment and chemicals for any procedure. But I have no idea what is needed most or least and would really appreciate it if someone were able to do this for me. Just in the comments or PM, have a list of stuff I should ask for if I wanted to kick start my chemistry, what that item is used for, the price and its frequency of use to determine what I should decide on if there were to be a conflict. I would really appreciate any help I can get from you guys cause my birthday is coming up soon! Thanks everyone! ~Ostomesto

To-do List Feature

I had an idea for something that I think would be a great addition to the site: a To-Do List feature. You could create to do lists and add instructables to those lists. It would help keep your projects together, say if you wanted to make some shelves, repaint your room, and add mood lighting, you could add all of those instructables to a "Room Make Over" To do list. Just a though, I'd love to hear what you all think of it. (Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I couldn't think of anywhere else to put it.)

So, I am again requesting on this forum to please add my country in the list, so many of this lovely DIY forum members form PAKISTAN may participate in those contests.

Multi-generational email lists

Can anyone suggest a mailing list or group hosting solution that is private, self-serve, and extremely simple? I volunteered to setup a mailing list or group for my neighborhood. I just made a Google group, and checked out the invitation and acceptance process, which requires creating a Google account. I feel that creating another account might be burdensome or too complicated for some of my neighbors -- especially the older ones who stay at home peering out of their windows all day that I specifically want included. Mailman does pretty much what I want, but I don't think it's ready for someone who already has trouble dealing with email at all. Yahoo groups seems to be a default solution, but in all honesty, it is a total mess. Am I not giving my older neighbors enough credit? How have you made mailing lists for multi-generational groups?

Pro Feature Suggestion LIST

There currently seems to be a lot of threads suggesting ideas and discussing how they could or couldn't work. I thought I'd compile a list of all of these with links to their discussions so pro users could see what has already been suggested and yell out their support for ideas they like. Later when we've heard back from the ibles team perhaps the following list could be sorted into categories of how likely it is these changes will be made.In no particular order:1) User Online Status by Kiteman - allow pro users to see who's currently online2) Auto Currency Convertor by Jayefuu - automatically convert currencies after users have set their currency of choice3) Time Zones by Jayefuu - allow users to set their time zones in their profiles so ibles, forum topics and answers use times that actually mean something to them.4) PM Subscribers - by Kiteman - allows Pro users to notify their subscribers when they publish a new ible.5) Favourited by - by mikeasaurus - Pro members can see who's added their instructable to their favourites list.Please post links to topics I've missed and I'll add them to the list above. I'm sure Eric and the team have their own list of suggestions we've made, but it'd be nice for us to keep track of what's what.

Contests listing sort order

New contests seem to be popping up quite stealthily.  I do check the contests listing page often to see what I can throw together for fun but it is getting harder to keep up to see what is new.  New contest announcements will be buried a few down in the listing so I will not notice it if I do not scroll down the browser window. The listing does not seem to have the open contests in a recognizable order.  The Pi contest is at the top and some of the more previous ones were inserted between the open contests below. I suggest new contest announcements be piled on top so people can see what has been announced and work accordingly.  At least there is some chronological order to figure out what contests to enter.

Is there an easy way to list and link to Instructables by others, that I have made? If so, I haven't found it yet; if not, then this is a feature suggestion. It would be nice to be able to mark other people's Instructables as 'I have done this', and show a linked list on my profile; also, thinking further, the I'ble could then have a list called 'Who has done this?' or similar, and maybe we could even add an image of our version.

The Book - a problem, and a solution

I just spent.. far too long going through the list of the entries for The Book.There are nearly 2000 entries. That's nearly a hundred pages to look through when dishing out your vote.There will inevitably be some people who lose out badly because their projects are so far down the list that people simply get tired before they get to the end and give up.I propose that the voting page for this exceptional contest be arranged an exceptional way - all on one page.A single list of smaller-than-usual thumbnails, with the title beside and a vote / unvote button or tick-box beside that.That way, all people have to do (all?!?) is scroll down a single page and click away.It would also be nice if that list could be re-arranged in order of votes / views / stars.

I know that there have been topics like this before, but instead of this being for just me, if you have an idea I'll put it in a list here. Anyone can build any of them, (duh you could anyways) and if you make a gun on the list, I'll put a link to it. This way there is 1 topic, not 50. So what should people build?

Issue with line spacing in lists

I'm having a really annoying issue with formatting while writing Instructables. I'm sure someone else has complained before, but there's little else for me to do besides bringing attention to the issue. When writing instructables on a PC (Chrome, Windows 10), I'm having very annoying issues with line spacing when copying paste from another window. Most of the time it is simply copying text from some prior instructable I've wrote. It is especially problematic in lists. The issue is that sometimes the spacing between lines doubles after copying text, and even in subsequent lines the issue persists. This makes consistent formatting impossible. It seems to be due to copying the text from other formatted sources, but there are still conflicts when I try to copy and paste unformatted text. I'm not exactly sure what the trigger for the issue is. I have posted an image where no space between lines exists for the first 3 bullets of the list, but for the following lines (after pasting the third bullet point), all the spacing is double spaced. It does appear that it shows correctly (consistent formatting) when the instructable is posted and viewed online from a PC, but when viewed on a mobile device, the formatting gets messed up again and shows inconsistently. The issue also seems to sometimes involve different font sizing. Anyway, I just wanted to mention this since I'm finding it very annoying. I'd want to be able to have more control on the formatting, and also being able to copy formatted text (bold, underline...) from other prior instructables. But for the moment with just not having to deal with the line spacing option I'd be satisfied.
