Contest Entrees which barely fit Contest Theme

Sometimes a contestant barely fits the contest theme. Sometimes it clearly does not. Can an entry be disqualified for not being of the theme? Some projects seem to get votes for being cool regardless of whether they are entered in the right contest.

Hi! I want to enter a contest.

Hi! I'm from South Korea, which is located in Asia. I saw the teacher's contest and I wanted to enter the contest. But the contest said that only US and other few countries can enter it. But I really want to enter a contest! Can Korea also enter a contest?

Max Contest Entries

There has been some question about the max number of contest entries allowed in the contest FAQ forum. There are few ibles that have won a Halloween contest and then are entered in more contests that equal more than 3 total contests. Until now, it seemed that Halloween  was the exception to the rule. However, with this example, it seems that there is a bug in the contest entry system. This ible has won a contest and is entered in 4 more. https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-3D-model-from-pictures/

Contests

Is there a time limit for how long after you publish an instructable, it can be entered into a contest? (if not, there should be...maybe a year) Is there a limit to the number of times the same instructable can win a contest? (if not, then it should be limited to once)

wrong date on contest

Hi.  I just wanted to let you know that the date on the "Make it Move Challenge" is off.  On the main Contests page it says that the deadline is July 17th, but the headline under the Contest Info says "Enter Now! Contest Closes July 10."

Contest to win a PC

Someone PM'd me about a contest to create something new with their old PC.  I was going to enter but unfortunately it is only open to US residence.  I thought I would pass this along since there are a lot of Instructables posted that would be eligible for this contest (provided that you are from the US).  The prize is a PC.

Why can't I enter contests?

I published 2 instructables and entered 2 contests (Paper challenge and Sew warm). Since then I see several new entries have been added, mine were not. When I try to enter the contests again, the page tells me I have no eligible instructables. I even deleted one of them and wrote it newly today but still I cannot enter the contest. Both entries fir the topics of the contests but when I click "Enter now", I cannot choose any of my instructables.

Contest criterias

I tried to post this earlier but either something went went wrong or I was too blonde to find it, so if i is adouble plese ignoreand delete! My intention was to enter the Make it Glow contest with a better and more complete version of my forever Light. But after checking some entries I decided against it. There are a lot of totally unrelated entries in the contest and I fail to see the point in entering if obviously noone cares about what goes into a contest. For example a hovercraft, cordless screwdriver, fingerprint scanners, remote controlled robots, space doors or cmputer controlled flower pots..... I though the reason for a contest would be to have stuff in there that fits th contest.... I know some standards are not that high but isn't it a bit too low to allow totally unrelated entries into a contest??? Me, I simply don't see how a contest can be fair if the entry rules are already being completely ignored and obviously noone here cares to remove those entries... For that simple reason I won't support a contest with my entry.

Better way for contests that are being judged

When the contest are being judged, they are showing the recent instructables first, more people are more likely to choose those than the ones in the end or middle. I posted one of my instructables in the beginning of the contest, and I don't want someone else to win because they are the last instructable to be posted. It should be rated by the rating or views instead of automatically recent

Build My Lab Contest Question

I was wondering if this contest is just about building things or could I enter something along the lines of advice on ergonomic use of microscopes.  I noticed on the contest page under Judges Prize -Lab Hacks it mentions "Do you have simple solutions to common challenges around the lab?..Help make life in lab easier and safer for everyone....".  This would seem to fit but not sure since the contest seems to focus on building equiptment. What do you think?
