Cant change question

An email was sent to me with a link to modify my question. After I did modify the question, there was no way to save it.

Can't post new questions

I can't post a new question to the site. Yesterday, it was erasing the title of the question at the preview stage and kicking back to the start, erasing your body text, today, the "preview this question" is greyed out and unselectable Cache refreshed etc etc.

Questions not Publishing.

I posted a question yesterday: "Kiteboard/Wakeboard question", and it's not publishing. Also, my "How so I give away a pro membership" didn't get  published. Is this only happening for me?

Following a question not staying.

I noticed that lately when I click the follow button on a question, then go back to the main listing and then go back to the question it is not marked as following it. It does not appear to be something in my browser since I don't get notifications of posts being made in the question. I have re-clicked follow several times and it shows it as following but after leaving the question it resets it back. Is there a limit as to how many questions you can follow? Have I hit the limit since I follow a lot but never un follow them?

Questions are Not Deleted

A couple of times, I have tried to delete a question, and I will find out later that somebody had replied to it (and it will still appear in the QA section).  My operating system is Windows 7, browser is Firefox (I think it is the second latest version; I am not positive).  Thank you!

Q&A not appearing in recent list.

When I go to the Recent Q&A; section at https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-question/?count=30&sort;=RECENT, it doesn't appear. Is there a step that I'm missing when I submit the question?

Who is doing Burning Questions?

The new contest is finally up. I just want to know who's doing what 'Ible so as not to get too confused over everything. (and to avoid stealing *shifty eyes*) Yes I am aware there is an Instructible on it where discussion is already underway, but I think the forum should know about it too.Of course I've also used this to shamelessly promote my new (and the first) Burning Questions 4 'Ible: How to slim up for summer: The Atkins Diet!

Some questions about rubber

I was wondering what kinds of paints work the best on rubber. I'm talking about heavy-duty, solid rubber. I'd like to age an object made of this without hurting it and I was just curious as to the best way to go about doing it. Also, what type of glue would work best with it.

Burning questions: round 4...where are the entries?

I'm very confused. I was going to take a look at all the BQ entries and now they are all gone. All of us who entered our Instructables into the contest have been removed and it shows having zero entries. I apologize if I missed something here, I'm just curious. Also, some of the topics have been removed now? If anybody could clear some of this up, it would be great. :) Thanks, lovelies.

Molding is Not My Forte

I am currently working on a future Instructable that involves a lot of molding. Hence, I've discovered that my molding abilities are not up to par. It has been almost twenty-four hours since I poured the clear casting resin and it is still tacky on the top. Is this normal, or did something go horribly, horribly wrong?

Unanswered Questions

Am I the only one that thinks there should be a way to purge all of the old questions that haven't been marked as answered? I like to peruse the Questions section of the site to see what is on other user's minds and how their questions have been answered by the community. However, I did this today for the first time in a while and noticed a LOT of questions that had been answered fairly well but the user that originally asked the question never flagged it as answered. Is there, could there be, should there be a method to purge or close all of these unanswered questions? Maybe at least offer a peer review system for voting on the best of available answers, similar to what other forums have? Thoughts?

Questions tab under discussions shows I have no answers on page 2++

On my 'me' page, under answers, it shows I have 2 questions, and 38 answers. If I use the 'next page' button to show the next 10 'answers' I've given, that page, and all subsequent pages show I have no questions. Hypothesis: (the same offset of +10 is being applied to both the questions and answers, and seeing there are no questions 10+ it shows none)

Questions?

Sorry. This has nothing to do with instructables, but here is what someone I know said: "I heard this yesterday on the fourth of July. 'and I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free' What is wrong with that?" Someone I know asked me that question and I do not know. They said it had nothing to do with punctuation or capitalization. I will tell everyone later (if that person will give me the answer).

QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS!!

First off, theres probably a million questions you can ask yourself. you need to take this concept, ask yourself these questions, or ask yourself your own questions. Get a friend to write out your questions. You can Kinda rely on there Input of you as they see it. First, write your own quick questions then have a friend do it if you want to go that route. compare your questions and the question of your friend in trying to determine your future. If they dont match up in around 75 percent, drop the friend. there more than likely to bring you down. also, it might open your friends eyes to change if you just cut ties, if he/she is really a friend they'll jump on the bandwagon and try to make a real future for themselves. The Reason for the questions and noteboon is because, Most of you dont know what you really want or have given up on dreams because it was easy to give up on them. Most of you arent determined to actually work hard for your dream. If your not ready to realize who you are, then give up and leave. "This isnt about YOU its About ME." You say that as you leave, and its understood with clarity. Its about you making a decision. Its going to be hard to trully realize yourself, your ticks and perks, your passions, and what you hate because the mind is always conjective and supplies reasoning beyond means. you could say hey "I could be the messiah." Not that you are or arent, who am I to say your not what you believe. the thing is, your mind can, without doubt, create and make you in reasoning "The Messiah". thats whats good about the mind and bad about the mind. acceptability. The messiah died 2000 years ago. rose up, went to heaven and it says he's returning from heaven on a white horse. Not Bluejeans and brain notification at the last minute. You have to set and determine reality without passibility. Its time to realize who you are and what it is you need, crave, and expect for the future and quit getting in debt to your passibility and work hard to independantly supply yourself without ever using a credit card, without ever buying another car on credit, without ever buying anything on credit, you need to be active and in charge and quit allowing these crooks to screw you out of time for your own personal dream and accomplishment, quit dying daily and rise up and make the sheet hit the fan in there directions , and dont look back. First, the questions need to be in specific and not an entire self bible. you want to be able to know when someone asks you about your family, who your mother, father and grandparents are, how they excelled or didnt excel in life, and infact who you are. People respect someone who is aware. Question yourself on HERITAGE. Thats your first question, find out about your life, what health problems you have might not be a God blaming you as some say "He mustve really made god mad" because those people are stupid. It most liely is an Inherited illness that you need to know about, you need to listen to the signs man, because i believe in God, and I respect your way in your belief, but the signs are there. If your father died from a heartattact, more than likely, your going to have the same dna link to what will trigger it, or your son or daughter will. you need to get intocuh with heritage, humble yourself, curse yourself. get intouch, that should be your first pages. how predestined life will incure with your life. Make plans, and set forth action in your HERITAGE IMMEDIATELY. Tommorow will be a new category to question, so lets take steps to success.

K'nex L98A1 Questions

Ok, So I'm about to start building an L98A1. However, I don't think I should use the cocking handle assembly because K'nex is just too weak to hold up to it. My idea is to use a handle set-up like the SA80, ie. straight into the bolt. I would rather use the rail handle idea though, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them. Oh, and some design features: Should have decent range Definitely a curved mag Accurate to about 20 feet Will use a fair few pieces Will have a realistic TMH set-up: ie. Sear behind the mag.

How are the % ratings of featured Instructables changed?

I have a 31% featured rating.  I have been working very hard on my published Instructables so my featured rating will raise.  I published an Instructables that I worked several days on and it did not get featured.  I was a little surprised because I know the content is good.  My question is this:  Is there a way to unpublish it and re-work it and re-publish it and see if it gets featured then?  If I can't do that, how much will it change my featured rating if I delete the entire Instructable and start from scratch?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Voting for Burning Questions?

Call me crazy, but in My Day, there was no voting involved in it. It was just a matter of did you answer the question well or not? So what exactly does getting votes do for the writer?

Answers to my questions.

When may I see all my answers to other peoples questions? When I check my in-box it has been saying, since I joined, something like "you will soon be able to see all your answers to questions". Not yet? When? Sorry If i'm unclear. I'll try again soon.

I have a question about a recent question in the answers section on Cosmology....Does my question show up? I can't see it anywhere...

A day or so ago, I posted a question on in the Answers section on our lack of ability to see stars further away then our current expanding universe.  The next day, I revisited the question to correct a spelling mistake.  Now I don't see it at all Except in my profile.   Do you all see it? If so, I apologize for wasting space with such a trivial matter. I realize this may not be within the scope of anyone's experience here, but any reasonable speculation would be great....I have a few ideas of my own, but I wanted to get some input from others before posting my own. Thanks...

How to Write & Submit Questions

I haven't been a member of this community very long but I've enjoyed looking at many of the posts and have learned a thing or two.  I also enjoy helping people by posting comments and answers to questions.  One thing that I've noticed is that a significant number of posters write very poor questions.   Not that the question isn't valid, but rather the phrasing or context is not clear.  Some of them remind me of the old programming axiom GIGO - Garbage in equals garbage out.  Posters don't get good responses because they didn't form a good question.  The curious would get much better answers if the questions were clear as to the information requested, the context, conditions, the desired outcome, etc.  One might start with the old "5 W's" (who, what, when, where, & why and perhaps how and how many).  A little extra effort in phrasing the question and perhaps some good manners (please & thank you) will result in better responses and more community participation.   Perhaps as a collaborative effort, would there be value in developing an instructable on how to write a question?  Not as a set of rules or a format, but as a general guide as to what information should be included.

How can we help people when tagging their projects and questions?

After looking at some projects and posted questions, I have seen some people not using the proper tags or sometimes using unrelated tags. That affects how projects could be searched and found. This could eliminate the posting of the same questions that have been already answered. Does anyone have suggestions on how these people can be helped when it comes to adding tags to their projects and questions?
