Make Instructable Private & Delete Instructable NOT working

I was trying to make one of my Instructables private and/or delete it because I removed the video.  

When I try to delete it, I get this message:

ERROR 401: delete this Instructable, as it is entered in at least one Contest. -
ERROR 401: delete this Instructable, as it is entered in at least one Contest.

When trying to make it private, I get the following very long message:

Ok I figured it out - I guess it is impossible to remove an Instructable if it was entered in a contest that is no longer active. It is still strange that it produces those messed up error pages...
Can you please give me the URL of the project you are trying to modify? Also, is your preference deleted or private?
No promises, but I'll see what I can do.

Here's the URL:
https://www.instructables.com/id/Revisions-Dream-Project/

I'd prefer to have it deleted since the video is no longer available but really either way works.
There you go!

Sweet! Thanks!
