Last year's Egg Bot Challenge- My entry has disappeared.

My very first Ible was Orange Spiced Tea Eggs .  I am 100% sure it was entered in The 2011 Egg Bot Challenge.

I was toodling down Memory Lane today, looking at all of the great ideas and projects from that challenge... and my entry is gone.  lol... now I just want to know where it went!? ! ;-)

I'm getting used to disappearing comments, and the repeat comments that mysteriously appear where I typed something else (and make NO sense), causing people to think I must be smoking crack...

... but vanishing entries? I do not use drugs.  Even if I did, my entry would still be missing. 8-/  It's no big deal, obviously, but more of an unsolved mystery-thingie.

Is this another system bug?

It may have been abducked by eggtraterrestials. Stranger things have happened around here.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The programmers have dropped a few things as of late, hopefully they will find it.
ewwww, I heard one got discovered under an old PB&J sandwiche once.....
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
lol... you two crack/quack me up. ;-D
isn't that just "ducky" ? LOL
No official reply yet, they must have pigeonholed it.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
;-D
sorry, we have to lay on till the last one is a rotten egg.
ha ha bad yolk !
I guess that one didn't go over easy.
It didn't shell out much, for sure.
They better hatch up an explanation or they will have to peck their way out of this one.
I don't want to hear another PEEP about this LOL
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
LOLOLOL!
Did caitlinsdad fly the coop? I'm still waiting to see who will rule the roost.
I am not down for the count yet. My feathers don't ruffle that easy.
These puns are most fowl...
< slaps with rubber chicken >
Do they lay prophylactic eggs then ?
No, but I believe their chicks might bounce. Can't bank on it.
Banker? I hardly know 'er!
No need to be all aflutter.
Imma twitter
I don't want to hear another tweet out of you!
bajablue (author)  Lithium Rain2 years ago
;-D
FYI: I don't tweet....never liked twitter ;-)
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
hmmm... but you do peep... which, coming from a male Turkey... would make you a.................................

PEEPING TOM! ;-D
peep ! ;-)
I suppose they use rubber chicken buggy bumpers, too.
dumplings are soft too.
Yeah, not so good for "bumping" into things though.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
ok... just chicking.
I may be a few short of a dozen but I didn't want to come across as scrambled.
That seems a little over-easygoing...
We'll cross that road when we get to it.
Just be careful not to just "wing it" or you'll become a chicken pancake.
Now you're just battering me up.
only if you want to become a "chicken in a biscuit".
hardtack would break a beak
ThAT'S what the egg tooth is for !
That joke is like a "toof" er one!
A toof or a hoof, either way, I'm getting the shell out of this one....
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
I shell join you... but where shell weggo?
leggo my eggo !
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
Quit waffling! I asked where weggo... no need for ruffled feathers.
Sheeesh, It's like walking on eggshells around here...
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
yep... too many eggomaniacs with fowl tempers.
omelet this one go, no need to whip more hot air into the souffle.
Ha ha, I got that yolk. But I am afraid I willl have to yellow flag it. Unless you are making green eggs and ham?
Careful, this might hard boil and the comments will spill over onto the edge.
that could crack someone who's overly hard boiled.
two minute warning, it's at that stage.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
What happens when the 2 minutes eggspire? An eggsplosion?
A sigh of eggasperation. You're cooked.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
I got too much sun yesterday... so I egree... my brain might be a little fried.
Sunnyside up? Be happy, dance the meringue.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
Hahahahahahaha!!!!! BEST ONE YET! ;-D
punny!.jpg
Oh sure, bring Pi into the mix after the holiday is over.....
I do mince my puns, in this case egg salad.
Hmm, have you ever listened to EL&P: Brain Salad Surgery? That would make you an Egg head then, right ;-)
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
I'm too young to know what an Emerson, Lake and Palmer is. Can you eggsplain it to me?
Kids LOL or in this case chick? (forgive me the one reference...only punning with the chickens and no offense intended).
No offence, everyone flew the coop.
the coop or the co-op? ;-)
Opt out if you are a bird of a different feather.
I'm no chicken little (nor a little chicken either :-D )
I wouldn't call you a turkey, but "gobble, gobble."
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
Quit pecking on Goodhart, you Turkey Vulture, you.
Ooo a 2-fer >:-D we'll see who's the bird brain around here ;-)
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
Do you suppose Caitlinsdad will keep abreast of the storyline? ;-D
This looks like the tail end of the formation, can't fly backwards like a hummingbird and turn back the tale.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
♪Happy tails... to you... ♫
Alas, the comments have been squeezed into a cage. Till the next round robin topic...
I only gobble when there is too much food available. Lately the feed bucket has slim pickens in it (and for some reason I though he was no longer with us).
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
You pecked the right word, Goodhart. I didn't go off half-cocked.
...nor half henned :-D
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
.. nor spatchcocked! ;-O)
They use to spin on vinyl platters. Not unlike an egg that can stand on its end at a certain point in Ecuador.
bajablue (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
Spin on vinyl platters? Like a disco duck doing the funky chicken?
Mix it any way you want. That's one apoach to it.
bajablue (author)  Goodhart2 years ago
Touche... with an apostrophe! ;-D

I've looked through the contest and can't see a record of it entered. Have you unpublished it after it was entered?

Also, another place to confirm if it was added was through your PM history. We send out automated responses when an entry in received and when it's added to a contest.
bajablue (author)  mikeasaurus2 years ago
I get an email when a contest entry is submitted and when it's accepted, but not a PM in my inbox. I do get a PM (inbox) when the winners are announced, though.

lol... I found the saved (to lazy to delete) the confirmation email! Hard to believe that I just joined Instructables less than a year ago.

Here's the copied/pasted email and a hinky "real" screenshot. ;-D

This is a weird one. I've tried what I can but it looks like we need to dig a lot deeper to get this one rectified. I've filed a bug report regarding this.
bajablue (author)  mikeasaurus2 years ago
It's ok, Mike... really... we don't mind seeing you with a little egg on your face. ;-D
Gee, I hope mikey isn't in the dumpty, all the king's horses and all the king's robots couldn't put this one back together.
I fell off the wall ages ago, you've only noticed now?!

I hate to beak your bubble, but....
