"did it" box Answered

one thing that the "stats" (things like ratings and views) of instructables i think DESPERATELY needs is a did it option. this means that you have actually made/did/modified whatever the instructables instructs you to do. i propose a little check box and a stat called Did Its, this would show how many people actually made what was instructed in your instructable. i dont know about you guys but i think this would be AWSOME. please the more attention this topic gets the more attentions it gets from the admins. plz ewhelm


How about a

[made it] [+] [-]
Meaning that you made it and it either worked or failed.
[made it] [+] [-][liked it] [+] [-]

Stuff like that, like understandable, legible, neat, blah blah wah-kah-cha.

People write instructables that they have not "accomplished"? I would never have imagined that, honestly.

Dazed and confused....as to how they do this in good conscious (maybe I am naive ?)

I thought you were going to link to a Led Zeppelin song..

Oh well, you can't please all of the people all of the time; still....

He means for other people to check the box to say they have followed the Instructable and made their own, say, swimming robot model.

Oh ok, got it.....(it is still a bit early in the morning for me :-) *blinks away the "sleepy eyes"*

Do I smell a greasemonkey nearby? I understand it would have an incredibly limited reach, but it still might be better than nothing. Thoughts?

I had to disable Grease monkey as it was interfering with a few things....I have a very weird system, sorry :-)

I want one of these too! It's been on the list for a while now.

I secondize that thirdification twicely!

Fifth-ing that thricely secondized twicely thirdification! I'd like to hear who wouldn't like that feature?

Yea, I've thought about this a few times. Glad I'm not the only one that thinks this would be a great addition to the site.

I'd like to see something like this too.

Not a bad idea. I know that I like knowing when somebody has used my instructions.

Some things attract it, my lighter drive has tonnes of photo comments on it showing their versions... It's nice to know... The jet one has a load of them...
