 Ok, so I'm 16. I didn't see these rules until now. It says, "...you are over the age of 18, or entering with the knowledge and permission of your parent or guardian...". Since I didn't get one of my parents to create an account and post my instructable for me, could I still get one of them to 'okay' the sumbission in the event that I do win?

aaaaw have to be 18?!?!?!?!? man Id be a millionare if it wer'e'nt for that " By submitting an entry and entering this contest, you represent and warrant that: you are over the age of 18" thats a load of carp!!
Unfortunately, that's a liability issue, and deals with insurance and state and federal law.  Get one of your parents to create an account and post it for you.  That takes care of the liability, and you still get a chance to win.
hold it so if you win and don't live in U.s.a you can still win but the prizes wont be sent
