Instructable Contest Answered

I just spent around 4 hours making an excel walk through for an Instructables contest, and when I went to add it to the contest, it said, "Sorry, your instructable isn't eligible; it may have been published before the contest entry date." The contest is April 4th to May 1st. What is going on?

You have 1 instructable in the https://www.instructables.com/contest/imadeit/ contest.
I can't see any others.

However, I'd really like to know how you can make Excel relate to eggs, where is it?

Never mind, I tried to enter it in the unpublished form. I just said publish and there it was. It is a little different than most other entries to that competition, but it works.

That wasn't what I expected, but I can't think of reading anything else here that has used Excel for the sort of things it's good at - nice job.

It's for the Egg-Bot contest, and it says, "Anything egg related is eligible." My instructable does indeed have to do with eggs.

Best email the problem directly to service [at] instructables [dot] com.

(Of course, it may be that the actual reason was that the particular instructable concerned was not actually suitable for the contest in question.)
