It is a real shame... I had two great ideas (and a lot more), I don't know if I should enter them...

Please go ahead and enter them! As you know, winning the Halloween contest isn't the only reason to put a project in. An awesome project could be included in our special International Halloween spot in the newsletter, get picked up by the big blogs/magazines, or even show up in the next Instructables Book. We try to keep the contests as wide-open as possible, but in cases where we have to be more restrictive we still try to do the best we can for our international members.

Ok, i know you have made several comments about this already, so to clarify, Im in the uk, am i right in saying that, if i enter the contest, i could still 'win' i just wouldn't be able to take receipt of the prize? i would essentially only be entering for the pride of winning? ALSO if i was to win, would i be able to nominate one of my friends in america to keep the prize instead?

You can always pick up a collaborator. Have a friend in the US sign on as a collaborator, and then I'm pretty sure that would fix the problem. If you could trust your friend to send you the prizes!

Okay, I will enter one of my idea, my other one is costly and difficult to build, so I will leave that out... Also, is this going to be like that for all the contests in the future? Or is it just this one?

I'm simply taking them back to my workshop, my dear. I'll mod em up there (and write an 'ible about em) and then I'll bring them back here :-P

You are so right. I mean seriously the entire USA doesnt know that there is a world beyond there borders. Maybe 10% know that there is, but all of them believe that the rest of the world is full of developing countries and have no money.

I think the real issue is that someone needs to make an instructable on how to become an American citizen. Then the problem would be solved.

Wouldn't a US Collaborator fix the problem? If you can trust the collaborator that is. It's easy to add a collaborator.

Perhaps non-US winners could get the parts of their prize that CAN be shipped to their country. Or a T-shirt. That would be enough for me.

This news of a USA contest only is disappointing. I just wanted to point out that image you are using on the home page to promote Halloween Costumes is mine - made by a Canadian. ugh.

We're sorry this one had to be US-only; I'd encourage you to go ahead and enter your Halloween projects, as we'll be trying to do right by our non-US members by getting you some extra attention for your projects. Most of our contests are international, and we work hard to keep it that way.

Oh don't worry, I will definitely still enter - there's no way I wouldn't. It just feels weird to suddenly be excluded for geography. But that's ok, I love you all anyways.

then =SMART= was all like oh no!
then he was all like lets post a topic
and then you were all like, I don't get it
and then I got all explainy-like
