Specific language groups or forums

Hi, not sure this is a proper place to ask, but is there a way or possibility to start a group on a language other than English? Would love to encourage people to participate more, btu there is this language boundary. Thanks!

Flag request: "other"

I'm sure this has been suggested elsewhere, but nothing came of it, either way, and it has come up again in a conversation with another member by PM. Currently, Instructables can be flagged for three reasons - "inappropriate", "incomplete" or "spam". Whilst they cover most eventualities, I would like to propose a fourth flag option: "other". Of course, "other" is rather vague, so its use would require details - clicking it would open a comment or message box to allow a brief description of the reason for the flag, whether it is the original source of a project that has been ripped off from elsewhere, or a concern regarding the safety or legality of a posting. I don't know coding, so I don't know if such a system is possible with this site. If it isn't, then can I suggest that a fourth flag option be added called "Legal issues", or some other catch-all phrase that covers issues of intellectual ownership and site liability.

What to do with a Nintendo DS

Somebody gave me a nintendo DS for free because it had a broken top screen. Using the power of instructables I replaced the top screen and now have a perfect Nintendo DS. Problem is...... I never play video games, I have no use for a DS. Anybody have any good ideas of things to make with a Nintendo DS.....either using the DS as a whole or savaging it for parts?

Intact fog light wiring and switch going to waste, what else could they be used for?

I'm 16 and have a '83 Toyota Tercel, a bit of a junker, but I'm trying to learn everything I can from it. The previous owner removed the front turn signal assemblies and replaced them with fog lights which isn't legal to drive in MT. I bought and installed the new turn signal assemblies, and almost removed the fog light wiring (plus the switch inside the car to turn them on), but I would hate to waste all that wiring already set up nice and neat. What else could I hook up to them? Any ideas?

(SOLVED) Break circuit = Make circuit?

Basically, what I want to do is activate something when there is no current somewhere else. Examples of uses of this would include turning an LED on when there is no light on an LDR and turning it off when there is light, rather than the other way around, along with turning an LED on when a circuit is broken by opening a door. Apologies if I have not been clear enough. Is this possible?  EDIT: Thanks to NachoMahma, I have it set up with a transistor. I will post a schematic if anyone is interested.

Can I add links to my instructable?

I am working on a Halloween instructable,  my creation of a character  and need to know if I can add links from other sites in my instructable.  The links will not be a tool for the instructable creation but they will add interest to my instructable for information  purposes ( history facts.) I would like to add a video link as well,  again for information only.   Any help will be appreciated.

Wisdom Teath and any other Sugery

So I have to get all four of my wisdom teeth removed this Friday at 7am (tomorrow), and to make it worse we have Friday off of school. But I wanted to get it done before the holidays (TURKEY!!). So any horror story's (of any surgery doesn't have to be wisdom teeth)? How old were you when you got yours out (I'm 14)? Did you even have them removed? BTW: There putting me under (anesthesia) if you were wondering.

JonnyBGood's Other Hobby

Well this may seem out of place in the K'nex forum, but since I am a member of the group I think this still applies. For the last couple of months I've been pretty inactive as far as my K'nex building has been concerned but as you can probably see from the pictures my time was being completely consumed by my Nerf hobby. Let me also state this while I'm at it.... No this does not mean I've stopped K'nex building, I've just been sidetracked for awhile. My reasoning for moving to Nerf is mainly because of a resolve I made at New Years to start tinkering with electronics, and of course I wanted to keep shooting projectiles so Nerf was perfect. It also allowed me to participate in more wars, again I love K'nex and I look forward to our once a year K'nex war, but one isn't quite enough for me.  Nerf also gave me one other edge that I wasn't getting with K'nex, and that was a marketable product. Kids are willing to pay on average (based on me stalking ebay for a month) 40-80$ depending on gun and paint job quality. So I have a possible source of income custom painting Nerf guns.  When should I expect another K'nex ible'? Well I have one last Nerf build I really want to do ( rapidstrike uzi ) and after that I will refocus of getting some war guns together for the K'nex war this year.    So in summary, that has been what I've been up too. If you like any of my work and would like to make an offer I will gladly consider anything reasonable, so send me a PM. I plan on eventually selling "Vanguard" themed white Strongarm's because I can paint those relatively quickly. The Rayven Roughcut integration ( Mine is called the Universal Remote) is my piece de resistance right now and I'm insanely happy with how it's going. If you know a friend that may be interested in my work, I'd appreciate any referral. Also note that I'm not doing any commissions.... yet. I'm kind of addicted to the art of making a well painted and functioning Nerf gun right now.  Thanks for reading, more K'nex projects coming soon!     JonnyBGood

hstough101 appears to be copying other members instructables and posting them as his own.  His instructable "Dome Lights" uses the same photo I posted in https://www.instructables.com/id/Globe-Lights/.  His other two instructables have photos that look very familiar as well.

Knex filter

Knex is nice and all, but is there a way to never see another Knex project while still seeing the other projects on Instructables. It just takes too much time to load the Knex thumbnails when there are other projects of interest.I'm sure others would filter out other project types. Such a filter would be most appreciated.Dave

proximity TO EACH OTHER sensors?

I've seen several instructables for creating proximity sensors that will detect anything, but I want sensors that will detect only each other.  Basically, I want to have LEDs inside tiny toys that will light when the toys are near each other, then fade and turn off as they are separated.  Can anybody point me in the right direction?  Thanks.

Feature request: multi-language versions of the same instructable

We miss out a multi-language feature in instructable. Some people creates copies of the same instructable in other language and other transalte each step of their instructables. It will be great, once you have entered an instructable in English, to add the same text and notes in other language. So when other person visit your instructable, he will be able to choose the languages. Also, someone that likes so much another author's instrutable could be able to translate it to other language...

Replace 3-way light swtichs

  Hi Folks,   I have a small laundry room with two 3-way light switches and no outlets. I would like to replace both switches using one of these options: Replace "master" switch with combo switch/outlet (like Pass & Seymour TM838. Replace slave switch with an Occupancy Sensor Switch. -OR- Same has above but use a regular outlet instead of combo. If I have to I would be happy with disabling one of the switches and just have the Occupancy switch. I have posted photos of the wires coming out of the switches here: http://stellabotte.smugmug.com/Other-1/Electric/37036170_Zc4KSw/#!i=3075021321&k;=gGJ9vgJ The replacement switches are: Pass & Seymour TM838-WCC   Combination Sw/Outlet    Pass & Seymour RW3U600       Multi-Way Occupancy Switch   One side bar question, can any 3-way switch work with any other 3-way switch on the same circuit ? Thanks -Fred

Embedding things other than video

Specifically, I'd like to be able to embed some code that I will host on Google Code (or if anyone has a better suggestion, I'm open to it!). Is there a way to embed things other than video? Right now the embed video feature isn't even working, but I'm hoping that will be fixed by the time I'm ready to publish my instructable. Thanks!

Swivel Castor Wheels from Other Types of Wheels?

Is it possible to make swivel castor wheels from skateboard, rollerblade, rollerskate, or other type wheels? I know there are swivel plates by themselves, but would this be used? If so, how, if at all, would the above types of wheels be attached? Or just use some type of swivel bearings? Wood? Something thru the middle of the wheels? Fixed castor wheels attached to swivel plate? Any ideas, other poss optons, to be able to make? Thanks

Ability to edit other's instructables if you're in the same group...

If your answer has been selected as a winner in the Burning Questions, you might have noticed the ability to edit other people's instructables, because you are in the same group. I believe this shouldn't be allowed, since anyone could vandalize someone else's work.

Less People

In discussions I've had with my father multiple times, we've come to the conclusion that for humans to stop having a negative impact on the planet, there must be less of a human population. No other way around it. Now, don't get me wrong and think I'm saying everyone should commit suicided or someone should make some deadly disease to wipe out massive chunks of the population, I'm just looking for others opinions to this theory and possibly other.... more humane alternatives. Other ideas as to reducing human population on earth: Sustainable colonies on the Moon, Mars, etc.?

Instructables by others, that I have made... on my profile?

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. Is this a very silly idea? What do you think?

cod liver

Had a fine can of cod liver in its own oil. Found it to be quite nice and mild in taste and in texture. I spread it on crackers but it made me wonder if there were any other good ways of making snacks and or other foods using the liver. Does any one else know of other ways to use the cod liver and the oil? Thanks.
