18 or older Answered

in the contest rules it says you have to be 18 or older. with most of the contest it just says you need a permision slip, so what's going on?


If you win, they will give you a permission slip to have your parents sign. Don't worry, they will send you a PM with all the instructions you need.

Not this time. You can do a collaboration with someone 18 or over and they can claim the prize for you, but there's no permission slip for this one.

Since I'm a UKian, can I collaborate with an over 18 American and get them to claim the prize?

Out of curiosity... what is it about this particular contest that requires 18 or over versus a permission slip? It doesn't change my status - I'm just curious :p

Or just say you're 18, which I easily get away with. -Punk (No I'm not a scrawny lil 14 year old kid)

The stuff I sip isn't called haterade or even gaterade for that matter, but you obviously wouldn't know.

Wow, you have a lame imagination :) just joking, good for you for not being fourteen. It means you will die before I do, and be finished rotting long before I go down:) and can you guys stop posting back and forth?, you're spamming my inbox.

No chances are I'll be standing over your grave when you die. All that text messaging bullshit you guys do, leads to things like arthritis and then probably suicide or other arthritis related complications. Seriously it will happen.

STOP SPAMMING MY INBOX and no I don't text message, the only time I wear my fingers out is replying to idiots like you. P.S. I do crack my nuckles which can lead to artheritis and eventualy to pergatory. (knukle cracking is a sin!)

Oh shit, I have knowledge on something you don't, girls (You're probably thinking eww cutties or whatever you kids call me these days)

I am eclectic by nature, but normally what I create are "johnny on the spot" tools and such, and are fairly simplistic, and mainly use-specific. I don't know that anything like these would be acceptable "instructables"

We try to be as flexible as possible, but the rules are different for each contest. This time the prize winner must actually be 18+. I'd recommend doing a project collaboration with your parent or someone else over 18. They can be the primary prize winner, then share.

Can I have my brother Mike Sowers be a collaborator but still have the project under my name? Or does he have to have the project under his name and me be the collaborator. I have a cool project I would like to enter :)

From the sound of it, it looks as though the "child" would be the "collaborator" mostly.

So as long as we document a collaberator over the age of 18, we are ok? And the prize mailed to the 18+ person?
