So, having re-plumbed the site and made it more stable and reliable we’re on with getting Makes launched for Monday (it may be late on Monday as we’re running out of biscuits and espresso to keep the development going 24/7). We need your help. We want some early testers to help test Makes and show good examples of how you’ve made things. This could be a simple things or a complex thing or well, anything. The key is to do it well and test the functionality.
Who’s up for that? Anyone? All you’ll need is a bit of time and photos of the ‘thing’ as you’re making it. Of course if you’ve taken images whilst you been making a ‘thing’ before you could “do a Blue Peter” and just pretend it was all done like, now.
For an idea of what we’re trying to do with Makes see The Instructables site. This site covers *everything* (mad stuff like this) and we’re just going to focus on crafty things rather than say how to do gelatin/agar filtration.
Whilst I’m here. This is nice:
The last few weeks have been really interesting. We’ve seen a heap (collective noun for crafters and designers please?!) of new crafters and designers come to Folksy to list things for sale and many of these have brought with them a different ‘type’ of thing. Like recent graduate Paul Allen’s stuff, above. Brilliant.
