I Cannot Delete My Instructable

Whenever I try to delete my instructable: I get this message that says "You Cannot delete this instructable as it is entered in at lease one (1) contest". Those instructables were entered in a contest a while back so currently they are not entered in any contest. Any help with this?

What instructable are you trying to delete? Can you provide a link?

I'm trying to delete all of my instructables except for my snow globe one
Hey Etch, like Mikeasaurus and canucksgirl said, I'm just waiting on confirmation from you and then I'm going to go through and delete all 9 of your instructables that aren't the snow globe one.

Please let me know if that's what you want, and I'll get straight on it.

Yes. I'm 100% sure that I want them deleted. Thanks!
I've deleted everything except A Workspace Fit for a King, as it'll make me real sad to see this page have an empty square on it:
https://www.instructables.com/contest/shareyourspace/

If it's okay to leave then one up, that'd be cool of you. If you really want that one down, let me know. It's going to take some extra time as there's some behind the scenes things that need to happen in order to delete it (it's not a super easy task).

Thanks.
Instead of deleting them, why not convert the ones you don't want to share to 'private'. Then only people who you share the link with can view them (and maybe you can edit them later if you want and republish them as public).

let me know your intentions and I'll help you delete them if you still choose.
Sorry for chiming in on your conversation.... but you want to delete 9 out of your 10 Instructables?

Can I ask why?

Sure: I made all of those instructables when I was like ten so I don't really take pride in that work knowing I can do much better now. I also just want to start over on instructables withoutaking a new account.
I see. Can I suggest that you edit them instead? Maybe you can fix them to where you can be happy with them now and avoid having to delete them. Plus your overall stats, view counts etc will drop dramatically when you delete them... so its something to think about.

If however you still want them deleted, you'll have to PM or post the links to StumpChunkman as there isn't much that I can do to help you delete them.
