instructables question - what's a patch and why would I send one? Answered



Best Answer 6 years ago

It's a digital badge of respect - send one when, in the real world, you would send somebody a card, buy them flowers or buy them a drink.

They can say thank you, well done, sorry...

Have a look at other folk's pages (just click on their names) to see what sorts of things patches get sent for, and the range that can be sent.

If you really like something that someone did you'd you might want to send them a patch.
It also makes you member page look fab.

But remember you only have a limited number of patches you can send.
