Um. How do I see ALL the entries? The contest banner says there are 68 entries, but I can't see more than about 25 via the context page sort options...

Still broken. Does this mean the only way to view all the entries is to search instructables as a whole? Yuck! The current state of things seems to give an unfair advantage to the entries that are reachable via the contest page...

It was fixed earlier today. It's not apparent enough right now, but clicking on the "2" button gets you here:

Hey fungus, does instructables have a way to prevent, or take into account, sock puppet voting?

Sock puppets are multiple accounts created by a user for the express purpose of making the user look better, they've been around since the usenet days, a user sets up fake accounts, then uses the fake accounts to praise their position, argue against their own position using patently absurd arguments, vote for themselves, etc.

Aha.

Hey!
You learn something new everyday.

Know what that means? No more learning for the rest of the day! (impossibility factor = infinity)

From my understanding it is when someone makes up a false account to get ahead. For example, make a new account to vote for yourself.

I hate it when people do that. Especially when they do stuff like that at school. They make something similar to your name, and trick you. :(

It's not letting us vote for any of the planes. Is just says there's an error or something.

You're right, there was a problem. The settings have been changed to allow votes once again.
