Paracord Instructables Answered

Ok, let me preface what I am about to say by letting you know that I am not trying to be rude in any way.

I think there are way to many Instructables coming out about paracord bracelets. I frequently get Instructable newsletters in my inbox with a paracord bracelet Instructable. Paracord bracelets is a very dead horse at this point.

I am not trying to be mean or rude, I am just suggesting that people should think of a different Instructable before they consider making one about paracord bracelets.

Cheers!

It isn't just paracord bracelets that have dozens of instructables, there's a great many subjects with a great many duplicates and if you go through them, you'll often find half a dozen that all start off saying "I couldn't find anything on how to do this so I decided to post the instructions"...most of them will explain the same process in the same way (not including the ones that actually cut and paste someone else's work).

...cut and paste...

If you find actual copies of other Instructables, you should email them to service@instructables.com so that they can be dealt with properly.

*ahem*

Sorry, but we welcome everybody's work here, as long as they create their own - as any teacher will tell you, there are many ways of learning, and one person's explanation will mean more to a particular member than another, equally good explanation in a different style.

Um, did the *ahem* mean that you are trying to start a debate? If so, I think that is funny! Nice way to use my own Instructable against me!

So are you saying that if somebody were to post a paracord Instructable, but it is explained differently, then it would be ok? I would agree with that, but there are so many about paracord bracelets that it has gotten out of control. I do not think we need anymore.

I wasn't offering, I was pointing out that your OP broke the rule you made.

You agree with my statement, with the implicit meaning that you can never have too many of a project, then tell me we have too many if a project?

Debate FAIL.

No, I agree that if it is explained in a clearly different way, then it would be ok. But I doubt that most of them are explained differently. I should have explained that better.
