How do I see who the finalists are for contest in the new contest layout?

Hi I'm having trouble seeing who the finalists are for the pallet contest in the new contest page layout, could someone explain to me how to see just the finalists and not every entry into the contest.  Thanks a bunch! (In the old layout there use to be a button that said "finalists", all you had to do was click the button and presto there they were. I wish that button would come back. Also, I'm having trouble trouble judging the swimwear contest. I received the email to judge and I clicked the link to go to the ballot, but I just get directed to the contest page for the swimwear contest.  I'm logged in so I don't know what the issue could be.  If you have any information to help me with this as well as my first question I would be very appreciative.  Thank you.

A question of odds

Hello math gurus, here's one for ya. I'm one of the 50 finalists for the Green Science Instructable competition ( yay me - a pleasant surprise to get this far! ) , there are a total of 18 prizes, what are the odds of me winning a prize? If there was just one prize even I could work out that I'd have a one in 50 chance, but I don't know how to figure the complexity of multiple prizes. I'd appreciate an answer, please show your workings :-) Cheers, Bosherston

The last storm that sweep through the SF Bay Area provided a great deal of audio files for me to tinker with and place on my internet radio station. Most of the time the wind harp was really a rain harp!Should I win the Laser Cutter, I will use it to continue my first passion, that is building Robots and Artbots. Perhaps I'll see you at this years Makers Faire and Robogames and be able to share my projects with you.

I think that my entry, which took two weekends to write (not including yurt building time of innumerable hours and 3 yurts), and includes nearly a hundred photos, and full details, is rather good, and really comprehensive. It's also backed up by the fact that it's already inspired at least 2 others to start building yurts themselves, which is fantastic. Thanks to everyone's interest, my instructable made it into BOTH the "top rated", AND the "most visits" lists prior to being a finalist, so it must be popular. Please vote for me to show that! (up-rate this forum post!)As for winning the laser-cutter, I can promise you that I already have 20 different uses for it in mind ... including finishing my CNC table and building a 'reprap' (google it), and I'll be sure to post instructables on the good ones of them for everyone to see too!. I'd also like to take this opportunity to offer the use of the laser cutter to any instructables members located in Australia, for the cost of the materials & postage ... if I win! Yes, that means I've just opened myself up to 22 MILLION possible users (the population count of Oz) ... so put your votes in NOW! Viva-La-Instructables!

Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Audience votes will count for 20% of the total. Check out all the finalists, and vote for your favorites!This is a forum post created by the Instructables staff on behalf of the finalist. So why should you vote for this?Just about all the comments have been about the dialler version of the card - I guess this is certainly the flashiest of the two example designs presented here, but as I mentioned at the start of the instrcutable, it is more of an exercise in trying to get people to rethink their business cards and make them applicable to what they do professionally, and perhaps incorporate something hi-tech if appropriate. It is also a presentation of some neat techniques like professional graphic overlays on a shoestring and encapsulating electronic gadgets using inexpensive PVC cards that haven't been done before (or at least presented before). So has it made you think about how you could redo your business card (or make one up), or made you think how you might use some of these techniques in another project? If so, vote for this one! I am already working professionally on several designs for other high-tech business cards for other companies as a result of people seeing this instructable, so it has certainly made some people think.I'm sure all of the finalists have 101 uses for the laser cutter - I am no exception, and won't bore you with all of them. I spend over 50% of my time working with elementary school kids - teaching science, running activities, and camps - check out www.technologycamp.co.uk and you will see some of the things I am doing just this summer with them and want the cutter for! (particularly cutting out parts of robots, rockets, etc.) If it goes to me, it isn't going to be sitting on the shelf unused!

Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Audience votes will count for 20% of the total. Check out all the finalists, and vote for your favorites!This is a forum post created by the Instructables staff on behalf of the finalist. First of all, let me express my delight to be included in such a group. That something as ephemeral as an origami model should be considered alongside phaser pistols and solar furnaces is, to my mind, an accomplishment in itself and speaks to the breadth of interest of those who belong to this site.What would I do with a laser cutter?. Well, after cutting my initials into every metal object in the house, I would use it to score crease patterns. That sounds not so interesting, hunh? I am a paper folder and I have been investigating curved folds and twist folds in the past few years. Laser scoring makes it possible to dream up and realize models in minutes that might otherwise take hours and hours of precreasing. Perhaps more importantly, you'd be able to identify a blind alley almost immediately. There are things out there on the developable surface you'd be amazed to see -- well, I'm always amazed -- and the ability to laser score these ideas as they come would be extremely freeing.You know, unlike every other schnook in the modern world, I maintain a blog -- come visit me and learn the ways of Open Source Origami. (I'm not the only one, you know -- there's lots of us and the idea is spreading.)

What are your picks for the Laser Cutter Finalists?

We're busy doing a round of approval voting to help select the finalists for the Laser Cutter Contest. In this round, judges give a "yes" or "no/no opinion" vote to each entry. We rank the entries by total number of "yes" votes and the top 10 become finalists. While I haven't gone through everything yet, I've been adding Instructables I plan to vote "yes" for to my favorites (by clicking the "favorite link" right above the comments). Again, I'm not done yet, but you can check out my current picks here in my favorites.What are your picks for finalists? Post you top picks as comments, or if you have a lot, post a link to your favorites.Remember that an additional four finalists will be selected based on pageviews and positive ratings as recorded around Monday January 7th ( Laser Cutter Contest rules). So, there's still time to vote for and tell your friends about your Instructable or your favorites.

Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Check out all the finalists in the master list or in the Laser Cutter Finalists Group!It seems that many are interested what each finalist would do if they happened to win the Laser Cutter. In my case I would be very excited to produce small, limited edition mechanical sculptures. Everything that currently comes out of my studio is one of a kind, time consuming and expensive. While this may suit the incredibly scarce population of wealthy collectors, it leaves the rest of us in the lurch. I would like to bridge this gap with pieces that are equally fascinating and affordable. A whole army of little tin-toy style robots and monsters! Not to mention countless detailing and production aspects of my traditional work. Custom etched switch plate covers, precision cams, and on and on. If you would like to see examples of the design sense that I would apply to these little beasties, please visit my website.Thanks to you all for so many interesting entries. I now find myself using instructables like an encyclopedia whenever I encounter unknown territory in my studio. I hope my contribution was useful to some of you in the same way.

Who Judges the Contests ?

Who judges the contests ? The Sponsors or Instructables ? I ask because I noticed that the Little Bits contest and the Microprocessor contest both have 8 of the same finalists. Does that mean one instructable can win more than one contest at the same time ?
