Your entry contains the publication date before the deadline so you are still good. I think the staff is usually out kitesurfing or something on weekends and holidays so you won't find them reviewing things until they get back in the office on a regular workday. Publishing something close to the weekend might take a day or two to even show up if it gets caught up in the filters for content needing review. Good luck.

You're forgetting afternoons on work days, too. ;)

No worries, we err on the side of inclusion for all of our contests. The "published by" date is the important part - we don't penalize anyone for our work hours.

There's a full month between those posts - you must have a major case of prune-fingers!

Precedent has been set: let no one criticize gravedigging nor posthumous bumping anymore.

(You do know what "prune-fingers" are, don't you?)

I have a question that is mostly related to this. I published an instructable but I did not have very much time to type it since my project kept breaking so I had to write most of it on the last day, last night. this means i had very little time and i had a lot more to say. (I still do) So what I'm wondering is if i can still change it and add one more step, even though most of the building of the project is covered without being disqualified and still having a chance at the contest.

If someone decided to admit it, it's in. But all the time it's incomplete you'll have less of a chance of receiving votes. Update first - ask questions later. L
