Not accepting entries????!!!!!!!

I just tried to unpublish an instructable I just recently put up and republish it so I could enter it in the April Fool's Day contest. When I tried, it said (and I quote) "Instructable not entered in the April Fools contest because contest is not accepting entries. Can someone help???!!!

Unpublish/republish is not a hack around contest rules.  The I'bles database knows the original publication date.  The rules for the April Fool's contest are clear:  you must publiish a new Instructable (i.e., on or after the opening date of the contest).

Oh alright thanks guys. WOW AM I STUPID!!!!!
yeh it is on or after but you can just edit an old one but not do anything and add it to the contest
No, you can't.  If you edit an existing I'ble, the original publication date stands.

Don't be lazy.  Make a new (and better!) Instructable and publish that.
