Do patches have a time limit? Answered

I got a patch, and it said that I could gaze at it until it wears out after a month, so, do patches have a time limit? Just double checking/wondering.

Do I have to be a pro to recieve patches? Answered

I want to recieve a patch from someone, I prefer one that has a "TESLA" theme (the inventor, not the band). So it brings me back to the question do I have to be a pro in order to recieve a patch.

What exactly are patches?

I've noticed a lot of people thanking each other for sending patches or something like that and I also noticed that there is a 'send patch' option on my profile. I'm new to this site so I don't really get it. Neither could I find any information about this topic on the site.

What are patches?

What the topic says. I know that it may seem silly to some people but really though, I don't know what they do. It would be cool for someone to give me one, but it would just be fine for someone to tell me what they do. Maybe also about how to make one too.

Instructables Robot Patch?

I've emailed a few Instructable staff and posted a question elsewhere, but no responses... so... here's my question: I have a local company that creates custom embroidered patches and I want to have one made with the instructables.com robot... but they do have a minimum order quantity.  Is the robot logo available for something like this if it's sold online here and nowhere else? I'm not looking at making a fortune... just enough to cover my costs and shipping... and to have a couple left over to sew on my bookbag and give a few to friends. Thanks! J

Creating patches

I see we can upload our own patches to send to other people. What makes a "patch"? What are the size and format limits? Are there any style guidelines (the current patches all have a square border with rounded corners).

Wrong Achievement Patches

The winners of the Sew Warm Contest 2012 were given last year's achievement patch, which links to the previous contest, rather than the contest they actually won. If this could be changed and updated, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Patches for contests?

It used to be that patches were issued for entering or winning weekly contests, and that was a nice thing. I like looking at someone's profile and seeing the patches they've received. Other than the Chopsticks challenge, though, I haven't seen that appear on any of my entries. Also, it would be great if there were some indication (banner?) on winners of weekly challenges. Is that possible? I realize you guys are really busy, but these would be nice.

How do I make my own "potty patch" and get my small dog to use it?

I have a small pomchi and live in a very cold northern climate. We live in a main floor condo with access to green areas, but during the winter we get snowed in and he won't use the training pads he used as a puppy. My dog is over 5 years old now. I've seen the potty patch ads but can't get one in Canada. Please help!
