Bicycle Names

I name my bikes, usually for something wrong with them. Rusty, well, obvious. Lefty, it pulls to the left. Tiny, well, it's tiny. Some have more thoughtful names, like Phoenix, a bike I found in a ditch that was apparently thrown from a moving pickup. The fourth definition of the word Phoenix at this dictionary is a person or thing that has become renewed or restored after suffering calamity or apparent annihilation. Do you name your bikes?

Hello! I read instructables for a very long time, and today I decided to create an account. So, I've done it with my GMail, and got very strange name - "ВикторЦ1". IDK what does it mean, and how to change it. So, I always use nickname "Tsycunoff", and my real name is Victor Tsycunov, or Виктор Цыкунов in cyrillic. Saw this I thought - OK, lets create a profile manually, but i saw that name "tsycunoff" is already using. At settings pannel i didnt find form to change my nickname.So, the question is: How can I change my nickname at instructables.

Trampoline Trick Name

         I have a trampoline, and I can do a pretty good amount of tricks. And recently I was looking for a new trick to learn. I found one that I thought was cool, but I don't know the name. What it is, is a 180 aerial (no handed cartwheel). Most of the time when someone is performing it, they are transferring from trampoline to trampoline at an indoor trampoline arena. If you know what trick I am talking about please tell me.

Need help with a name! Answered

Hi everyone. I was hoping to harness the creativity and arcane knowledge of the Instructables community. The company I work for just launched an internal competition to rename our intranet site. I was thinking of submitting something linked to the word star (our new logo is based on the star Polaris) and to include some reference that the higher ups wouldn't spot. Any ideas? Deathstar seems too obvious, Skynet might make it through, but I am certain people out in instructaworld have some sweet ideas! (keeping with full disclosure, if I hypothetically win I do get a prize but I would much more enjoy seeing a joke in the intranet name for the next few years! I keep busting up when I get to call something T-101 on an industrial site :D )

The Name Escapes Me

I was digging through a pile of old stuff the other day, when I found an old toy I built. It is made from a wooden dowel with notches in it and a propeller at one end. When you rub the notches with a stick (a secret way), the propeller spins, and can change directions allmost at one (with the secret). I think it's called a Huwie stick?

Not Liable name change

When we released categories in April my intention was to help people find more Instructables that fit their interests. We carefully chose eight categories that broadly represented the site, and encouraged cross-over by allowing Instructables to be in two categories. I imagined that the categories would change and grow with time: If we saw an influx of Instructables of a certain type that couldn't be accommodated by the sub-category keywords, we'd create a new category.Not Liable was intended for all things that required a safety warning, and it was us thumbing our nose at our overly litigious society. I love the Not Liable category; many of the projects are inspiring, ridiculous, hilarious, and completely irreverent. However, over the past few months it seems that the specific name Not Liable isn't a great fit for the Instructables that show up there. Also, the focus on caution, safety, and "I am not liable for your actions..." attracts two types (at least two, maybe more) of Instructables that aren't a great fit, and just shouldn't be there at all. First, there are the Instructables that require some discussion of safety, but safety isn't a defining characteristic. For example, if a project involves making a book shelf with a table saw, the author should mention that table saws require care, but this doesn't make it a Not Liable Instructable. On the other hand, safety is at the very core of an Instructable on breathing fire. Second, many people misunderstand the meaning of the name, and assume it's a category only for things that might be illegal or immoral. I firmly believe that information should never be illegal, but there are projects that will never make good Instructables, and some people interpret Not Liable as a call for those projects. Also, Not Liable has always rubbed my aesthetic sense the wrong way: It's our only two-word category! So, I propose to change the name of the category to better reflect the Instructables already there, and as a way to encourage more Instructables of the type we want. When we transition, we'll add a "Not Liable" keyword to various Instructables to seed a proper Not Liable sub-category.So, give us a hand coming up with a new name, and tell us your thoughts.Brainstorm of potential ideas:AudaciousBizarreBrazenDeviantEccentricEdgeFreakyFunkyImprudentIrreverentOffbeatOutrePerverseShenanigansWarped

Easy-to-remember names!

Ever wanted to share your instructable with someone offline? Its hard to remember those random ID's at the end of the URL, isn't it?HAVE NO FEAR, I AM HERE!(Note, you can be afraid of me, if you'd like)Anyway, on to the point.Biobattery!Look at the URL! Its all nice-looking! And what do you know, I added the Allsteps link in for you!You probably want this for yourself, dontcha? Don't worry! Just type this in the URL of your favorite browser!http://instructables.thruhere.net/id/add/name/YOUR_DESIRED_SLUG/id/INSTRUCTABLE_IDThe "slug" is the thing that goes on the end of the URL, in the above case, it was "biobattery". It can be numbers or letters, but it is case-sensitive!The instructable ID should be JUST that random string. No slashes, no ?ALLSTEPS, just the random letters/numbers.Please, please don't abuse this, please. If I find that someones been taking up multiple slugs for an instructable, or not linking to an instructable, you're going to be sorry ;-)All of you who say I should being doing something else, this was done in less than fifteen lines of python! Thats why theres no nice page to create those links, because I'd have to spend 10 minutes making it. I actually spent more time on this post than getting it to work!And if anyone wants to donate a nicer domain, just ping the above domain to get my IP, and let us know ;-)PS: If you hate "instructables.thruhere.net", you can use "ytm.ath.cx", if you can remember it! Its pointed at the same server.

Why are your k'nex guns named as they are?

Why did you name your guns like they are? Was it random? Does it stand for something? Or is there some long or complicated reason involving foreign translation or coke or some film? eg. my storm guns are all good for fast fights with their quick reloads times. They are assault weapons, the german translation "Sturmgewehr", which can also be translated to mean storm rifle. the 22_ bit comes from the fact that it took me precisely 2 months and 20 days to perfect my rifle, and the number has gone up to help with chronology, not to do with hours. And you?
