2. I can't download the tutorials?
We receive many questions regarding problems with downloading our PDF tutorials. First, the tutorials are not hosted @1001Pallets.com but at @dropbox.com. [UPDATE] Due to many problems with Dropbox in a lot of countries, we have changed where the tutorials are hosted, they are now hosted @1001Pallets.com directly, and you shouldn’t have any more problems with downloading them.
The most common questions:
- The tutorials are password protected. How can I download them?
- If you received the download link to the tutorials, you also received the password; it is written in red in the same email.
- The password is incorrect!
- The password has been tested many times and was not changed since the beginning.
- The most common reason for a password error is maybe you made a typo error when entering it.
- I have an error message when trying to access your tutorial link!
- It's one of the problems reported and, after searching the internet for problems with Dropbox, we found a solution that worked: You need to clear your browser cookies. Then retry the tutorial link, and it should work. This is how to do it:
- If you still have problems, please contact us, we'll try to help you.
3. I submitted my work. How long do I have to wait before it's published?
It depends on how many posts we already received at the time of your submission. At the end of the submission process, and estimation of the time before publication is given. We understand that it could be too long if you have to wait one month before your work is online. We don't want to publish more than three posts every day for them to be visible. We could publish ten posts one day and then none the next, but your post may not have enough visibility, and you could be frustrated if no one sees your work and interacts with it.
4. Will my work be published on your social networks?
Absolutely! Your article will be posted on our different social networks which are: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, StumbleUpon & Tumblr.
5. Will you notify me when my work is scheduled & published?
Yes, but only if you are a member. If you have signed-up, you will receive an email when your post is scheduled (with the publication date), and you will receive another email when published.
6. Can I buy some of your products?
No. We don't sell any products; we are a kind of springboard for ideas around recycled pallets to give you some inspiration for your next pallet project.
When available, we add the link to the Crafter website at the bottom of the article. You should follow this link and directly contact the author.
7. Where are the plans?
Yes, we all want plans :), but to be honest, it's difficult to have plans/tutorials for all the pallet projects we feature. We do not consider ourselves as the main tutorial site for everything made with pallets. If you want to build it, most of the time, you'll have to figure out a way and reverse-engineer it. Let your imagination and your skills guide you :)
We will try to add more & more tutorials in the coming months. Are you a confirmed Crafter and want to make some tutorials? Contact us to see how we can work together.
