not able to submit an instructable

I tried to post a new instructable at 11.30PM PST on May 9th 2010. While it is uploading the pics, it just erased everything that I typed for the steps. I had to redo the entrie thing and at 11.55PM PST on May 9th 2010 I re-submitted the new instructable, for the paper cup contest. Now the site threw up saying that it cannot accept the instructable since deadline has crossed. According to the rules, the site should be able to accept entries till 11.59PM PST. It was so frustrating to see that my instructable cannot be posted after spending so many hours of hardwork..

You might want to report this in Community:Help:Bugs and/or PM the staff member who's in charge of the contest. They will be able to help resolve your issue much more directly than the rest of us.
I'm not sure which staff member is overseeing the contest, but Randofo's title is Community Manager, so he might be a good place to start.

Hi , Thank you for the reply. Could you please also post Randofo mail id?
Follow the link RMS provided.  That takes you to Randofo's profile on Instructables.  Under his picture(s), in the left hand sidebar, you'll see a button labelled Private Message Me.  Follow that link and write him a message.
.  hmmmm  According to the datestamp, you posted over half-an-hour before I did, but I did not see your post when I started mine. <shrug>
Yeah, I noticed that you posted after me, but didn't think much of it.  I've noticed weird lags in the visibility of comments on Questions, and even the occasional ouble posting.
.  Click on the link to Randofo's profile page that RMS provided, then click on the "Private Message Me" button.

Thank you for all your help. I sent an email to Randofo. Hopefully he can help me. Keeping my fingers crossed..
.  Technically, you have sent him a Private Message (PM), but, as long as he has been informed, it doesn't really matter what you call it. ;)

You have an entry in the contest that was published on the 8th, and is currently in the contest, according to your member page.  Are you referring to the kids bracelet instructable?  If so, I'd say you're good to go.
