There is, what it seems like a spamming profile, leaving the same message in every forum topic.

(sunday june 13, 2010. 23:46 pst) just happened to notice that if you update your profile picture it removes all previous viewable pictures (shown as thumbnails under your main profile pic) and replaces it with the most current selected. not sure if this is intended. I kind of liked seeing older pictures, but can see how this way is cleaner too.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm noticing their is a LOT of people with no profile image. I would love to find and/or make a profile image for somebody who needs one or wants a different one. I'll go as far to design it from scratch, or you can just have me put your username on it, or if your lazy I can just find a really neat one on the internet for you. If you want me to design one for you but don't have specific specifications for how you want it, you can simply leave a comment telling me some of your interests, and I'll try to find one that will represent you well. If you don't want to leave a comment, feel free to PM me.

Every time for the last few weeks when I go on the computer, I try and look at someone else's profile but I cant see their favourites, orange board, comments, etc but when I 'am using my Ipod, I can see their whole profile just fine with no problems.

Hello, I added the "profile" shortcut to the shortcuts option available in settings. It directs me to https://www.instructables.com/member/ rather than my actual profile, which results in an error. 1- Windows 10 x64 2- this happens regardless of browser 3- this happens regardless where I am on the site 4- image attached 5- description above

Bug Report: Problem: If you go to your Settings and Profile then try to change just your age and nothing else then click update profile. Then it says "Nothing Changed". So it will not update unless you edit something else with it. I use Firefox 12.0 as my web browser and I have a Mac book pro with Mac OS X 10.7.4. Solution: First obvious solution is fix the coding, but I would make it so that people can put in the day, month, and year into there profile settings and then it will automatically change the persons age on there profile that others can see.

Please tell me if this is already possible but I had a search around and couldn't find any way to do this. On my profile, I do not feel the 6 Instructables that are shown are ones that I would like to have on there. A few are my very early Instructables which were not up to the standards I have now. I think a way to choose which Instructables go on this page would be a great addition to make your profile much better for you and for everyone. Thanks, Hiyadudez.

This one confused me a bit, does the profile age roll over with your 'ibles birthday? Or is it another time, because mine's got the jump on my twentieth by a fair bit... But I have no recollection of having a birth date on 'ibles so hows the 'aging' determined?
Posted by killerjackalope 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
When you look at someone's profile, all the groups they are in are presented. The problem is, that when I want to see orangeboards, I have to scroll down through all the groups they are part of. This is a problem when looking at profiles of people like Kiteman and Goodhart, who seem to be part of every single group!I think it might be a good idea to show the groups like Favorites, that is, a small portion presented, because not many people want to see all the groups someone is part of. So, it should be presented like Favorites, a small portion first, then the option to view pages that list all the groups.Any thoughts on this?

Hello Everyone! Many of you have noticed and commented on the site updates that went live on Thursday, October 20, which included substantial design changes to the member profile page. The profile page is near to many of your hearts as the front door to your substantial investments in Instructables, and while some have found these changes disturbing, we believe that they're very much in the community's best interests. I wanted to reach out just to let you know that we have given the new design a great deal of thought and attention, and to share with you some of the reasons behind the changes. First, to clear up some ambiguity about the current state of affairs: The public member profile is stage one of two major changes to the site that will work together. Stage two, which is well underway but not released yet, involves the private profile page (currently the "you" page) and will make access to aspects of your presence on the site much more accessible. Full lists of your own content will soon be available on a full-featured (and much more beautiful) private view of the member page; meanwhile, this content is all available in the "you" section. So the sense that your own content has gone missing is temporary. Second, the High-Level Goals: Clearer, more accessible design. Our old member page, say what you will, had a lot of buttons and options. On the whole, we know that most people don't take the trouble to drill down into the various categories. We want to help you all build large audiences of new appreciators, and while an infinitely detailed catalog of an author's content is appropriate for some, the breadth of activity on Instructables can make it difficult for new users encountering the site for the first time to understand what Instructables is about. Fundamentally this is what the new design is for: to help people understand, at a glance, what a given author is up to on Instructables. Highlighting Engagement vs Cataloguing Activity. Different people interact with Instructables in different ways, but our member page has never reflected this subtlety. It has always presented the most recent Instructables and comments, even for authors who contribute exclusively to the forums, or through favoriting and following other users. We felt that your activity on Instructables should be presented front and center, because it more evenly describes the way in which you participate in the community. Many members participating in this very discussion have benefitted from this choice, even as they challenge it. Forum posts used to live buried under a tab on the left; now, the contribution of a forum topic can appear right at the top if that's how the author participates in the community. We wanted to see how authors engage, and we felt it was ultimately more important than being able to drill through every piece of historical content hierarchically. Audience vs Self. The old profile page served "my view of me" and "my audience's view of me" somewhat evenly. With the changes we've made, and the changes in the pipeline, we're taking a stance. The public page is for my audience, the private page is for me. We're confident the new design better serves authors' audiences, even if it has some weaknesses for the author's own view. The author-centric side is coming, please hang in there! Surfacing Older Content. At HQ, we have frequent discussions about the "evergreen-ness" of the Instructables authors post. A great project from 2009 is still a great project, even though the wider internet has a strong preference for "new" over "good". But it's a struggle for us: we can't put every good project on the homepage forever, or new projects wouldn't have a chance. So we have to strike a balance. The new member page helps in this regard: if your old-but-awesome project still gets some attention and activity, it'll show up in your timeline as people favoriting the old project. So your profile becomes a place of discovery, where I can see "whoa, look at that cool thing that this person made 3 years ago!". Previously, the old project would have been buried under several clicks from the landing page, generating almost zero traffic. Add to that the new ability to select "top projects", and you can see that we're trying to help you keep your best projects in the limelight. See new features below. Third, New Features to Help Authors: Top-Five Projects. DIY Projects are at the core of the Instructables experience, and we listened to authors who make different kinds of things, but want to treat their Instructables Profile like a Portfolio. Randofo is one of the community's best-known and prolific Arduino Gurus, but it's a fact that an Arduino Project of his is a much bigger time investment than some of his smaller food projects. In fact, did you know that he's authored 38 food projects? Now, randofo has the opportunity to present his most-relevant work first, rather than leaving it to his audience to figure out. Right now, he seems to be all about Halloween. Activity Feed. Love it or hate it, it's here to stay. We felt that having an activity feed on the member page was the most effective way to answer the most important question for a member page to answer: How does this member participate in the community? While that information was certainly available in the old layout, divining it required an audience member to click through all the tabs, reading every piece of content to completion. There was nothing "glanceable" about the information architecture, except perhaps the achievements (which we've kept). We believe that the activity feed, with the "top Instructables" feature in particular, makes it much easier to determine at a glance how a member participates. Fourth, It's a Living Document: We're watching your comments and feedback closely, and I expect that you'll see some pieces that you're missing return. I can't comment on specifics right now, but I know there are some statistics and counters that may have value. We agree, and we'll respond. But there was a whole lot of "extra" information on the page to begin with, and we wanted to start over as cleanly as possible. UX & Bugs. With a big feature like this, there are bound to be growing pains. Hopefully, you've already seen some improvement with regard to the delay in setting your "top Instructables" and having those reflected on your page. There's still a little blip, but it's down to about 10 seconds now, vs the 20 minutes when we first released it. Sorry about that! We'll also be looking carefully at how the page looks, making sure that we aggregate activity events such that no one event type (ahem, favorites!) takes over, etc. That's all for now. Hope having a little context helps put the changes in context. If it can't bring everyone onto the same page, we at least hope that it'll make them a little less out-of-the-blue. Thank you to you all who have written your comments, and who care so deeply for the community of Instructables!

I am about to get a new internet provider and a new e-mail address. For that reason I just tried to see if I could change my e-mail in my instructables profile. Unfortunately, I quickly realised that I have neglected this house-keeping task for some while. My old address stored here is waaaaay old, which means that the confirmation e-mail from you will fall into a black hole. Please send suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Yours "all_thumbs"

Hello *.*, I want to update my profile image. For this I login, klick on You and Edit Profile. After this I click Upload New Photo. After this I see, that the Upload new Image dialog fades in. But this happens behind the Edit Profile dialog. With the Chrome Debugger I moved the dialog by changing the css, so I can send a screenshot. If I click in the upload dialog then the edit dialog disappered. An upload does not change the profile image after this. I tired this with the actual Chrome and Firefox browser. In both the same. Any idea for me? Thanks Mark

Hi, I'm trying to add a profile URL at the settings page. Our website is https only, but if I add an URL starting with "https://", then after save the "http://" part will be added to the front of the URL, resulting in something like "http://https://mysite.com". Attached screenshot after saving. I don't think it's a system issue, but anyways, same experience both with Firefox 39.0 and Chromium 44.0.2403.107, on Arch Linux 64-bit. The problem is at https://www.instructables.com/you on the Settings tab. Cheers!

The Instructables app for android does not show any info from my profile. Favorites, following, my picture, my personal info... Nothing... All empty. It's like session is not started, but if I tap in the login button I go to my empty profile. I can't see the logout below. (See screenshot) Using Android 7 and app version is 2.0.4.

So Rachel deployed the server updates this morning. There are a lot of nice features, but at least one bug(?) and a couple of things I wish were different...Like the bigger patches :-)Like the icon format for my I'bles, favorites, and groups (on the /member/... version)Like the no-longer-present "(0)" in the INBOX link at the top of my pageDon't like the no-longer-present "(1)" "(2)" etc. in the INBOX link at the top of the pagePossible bug: Why are there "short lines" in the icon layout of my I'bles?Why don't the icons have the "featured" or "winner" banners?Would like the icon format on the /you/ page as wellWould like the "icon vs. long-line" toggle buttons for both viewOverall, the changes are light and subtle, but give things a look more consistent with the rest of the site.

Hi, I have uploaded a profile picture to Instructables that is a bit humorous. However, now this picture is spreading across all of my accounts on the internet! I know that the ONLY site to which I uploaded this picture is Instructables. The picture was appropriate for Instructables but is inappropriate for many of my other accounts. Somehow, my image has "escaped" and is being automatically captured by other websites. I am attempting to stop this profile picture from spreading any further. Can you PLEASE let me know how this picture could be spreading across all of my accounts!? Thanks in advance, Nathan.

Hi, I really need some help with this bug. The problem is a strange one: my profile is not up to date (it doesn't show my instructables or my profile picture), and I don't get notified when someone I'm following publishes a new ible'. Also it doesn't matter which computer I use or from where I'm viewing my profile I still encounter the same thing. I guess that the site mistakes me for someone else that joined in June 3 2007 with the name macgyver. Should I change my user name? Thank you!
