How can we ask the instructables featuring team to have a look at our modified instructable? Answered

As I recently made an instructable and it wasn't featured, but now I improved it a lot, so how can I ask them to reconsider having a look at it??

I would really appreciate if someone of the feature team considered looking at this ible(my ible) and tell me how I can improve it so that it can be featured(Sorry if I'm creating any trouble).


Thanks in advance!

As a general answer, you need to talk to one of the Community Team (scroll down to see some of the more visible members' avatars), as part of their role is to feature good projects.

Just found out that you are one of the community team!
Could you please tell me how to improve on my ible so that it gets featured by any of you people!That would be great help!

This is my instructable:

Personally, I found it hard to read with all the bold text - it felt as if you were randomly shouting at me.

Plus (again, speaking personally) it lacks that "certain something" that makes me look twice and say "Oh?".

Don't forget, the Community Team is actually a diverse group of individuals, so another member might feel differently.

I reduced the bold parts and made them only when they are necessary!Now have a look at it and maybe you might like it this time! If there is anything else I can do to improve it Please tell me as Im ready to try my best to get the instructable featured!

It's well written and has good clear instructions and photographs, but like kiteman said, it lacks something that makes you think "wow that's cool!!!". Often it's very hit and miss, I've found that Instructables I thought would do well have flopped, whereas instructables I've written that I thought weren't great someone else has been really impressed by.

In summary, your execution and style are really good, it's just the idea which lacks appeal (to me personally, it might wow others). The main thing to do is to not lose heart and to keep on doing whatever you enjoy and keep on sharing it, rather than writing with the sole aim of getting featured.

Are you one of the Community team??

Thanks a lot for your advices! I think someone else in the instructables feature team liked it so they featured it !I'm really happy!
