Unpublish/republish is not a hack around contest rules.  The I'bles database knows the original publication date.  The rules for the April Fool's contest are clear:  you must publiish a new Instructable (i.e., on or after the opening date of the contest).

No, you can't.  If you edit an existing I'ble, the original publication date stands.

Don't be lazy.  Make a new (and better!) Instructable and publish that.
