Why Has My Instructable Not Been Accepted?

Hi, maybe I got something wrong so I was hoping someone could guide me a little bit : )
I entered this instructible: http://www.instructables.com/id/Cardboard-Turbine-Style-Engine/
into the contest on August 1, the email said after 48 hours it wasn't accepted to the contest. Knowing that it said that the only requirement was that it was primarily made of cardboard, which it is, I re-entered it only to find that it was still waiting approval.. What do I have to do to get into the contest? I'd really appreciate anyone's help, thanks!

it probly wasn't going through because it looks like you have alot of metal in it.

It looks like it doesn't it?? It really doesn't, it's mostly cardboard and glue, and I would think that whoever approves the instructables for the contest wouldn't not pass it just because of the first picture.. Anyway, it was approved and there's no problem now : )

They didn't take mine either, but I think it was maybe because I didn't have pictures of each step. I added a picture for each step and re-submitted, so guess will see what happens. E

Thanks, I'll try that, but I don't want to annoy the staff, having submitted mine twice and made this topic..

The staff must have "annoyed" you by not accepting it - It's not unreasonable to ask why when it seems to fit the contest and site in general. If some error has occurred they would want to know about it. L
