Why I Can't participate or win

Why if Im from Chile I can't be part of the contest and things like that. Only because I'm not from the USA? just for that? I really wanted to participate and start writing instructables of everything I'm learning, but I also wanna enter the contest that are in instructable, so please, give me an answer :( why I can't participate? I mean, yes I can participate... but if I win, I will automatically loose, because on the contest rules said that if you're not from one or another country, you're not legible to win or things like that... BUT WHY?!!!??!

while loged in, when i click to view an instructable it says it cant find me as a user

Hello, I recently discovered that I could change what I thought was my display name on instructables. (the one that you only have one chance to do) But instead discovered that it is not only the display name that has being changed but my login username as well. Although a bit disappointed i figured "no harm done" but lately after some time with the new username i keep bumping into weird situations. While logged in and active when I click on an instructable to view i get a popup on the bottom of the page saying "Sorry, we can't find that account, or your password didn't match. Please try again!" if I navigate back and choose a different instructable I can view it will all steps on one page as I have it configured. Then if I try to again view the intructable that gives me the error I once again cant. This seems to remedy itself if usually when I'm logged out due to inactivity and then log back in. On other occasions I find myself unable to log in getting the same error as above. Deleting the cookies does not help with this. I am able to log in from the same access point through my mobile but not my computer. User/pass saved on both devices as to eliminate getting the login credentials wrong. I'm thinking this might be because of the unusual characters in my display/username? I was surprised that such characters are allowed for usernames, this also was a point that got be thinking that its the display name that I'm changing not the username (as for example in flickr). Please advice! p.s. after writing this I pressed "Preview Topic" and if I hadn't copied the text when after I noticed that the page was acting up I would have lost all of it. This happened several times while writing an instructable. I went to save or navigate to a different step and the page doesent load and if I press back I loose everything if I haven't got it in the clipboard. Again do you thing that this is related to the weird characters in the usename? p.p.s. I had to change browsers from firefox to chrome in order to be able to post this

I have been trying to post instructables and have 7 drafts that will not publish.  When I hit publish it automaticlywipes my tags out and sends me to the edit page without publishing.  I would really like to start publishing my instructables but Its not being very user friendly.  There are no explanations on how to do it correctly either so I don't know if I am doing it wrong or not.

Cant search by rating

I am unable to search instructables or anything else by rating. Was this feature removed or is it just me with this issue? If it was removed, can you quickly explain why? It would make zero sense to remove it, if someone wanted to make something or find the best of something, they can find the highest rated instructable and that will most likely be the best choice. Also, if you remove search by rating, then you should remove being able to rate stuff altogether.  Help / explain

Hey, I can't comment on instructables, can someone help before I punch my iPad? Thanks.

Apparently, when I try to comment, it says "missing comment text" i am on an iPad, it used to work, but now it doesn't. Maybe it was some update? Idk. All I know is that it was working fine, then it failed. I have a temporary fix for comments on my instructables, but I can't comment on others! Please help! if you can, please fix this ridiculous problem. Thank you. ps. This has been going on for a while, so I think it's not just a one time glitch. if anyone is having the same problem, post to me in my orangeboard. I cleared my cache and it still doesn't work. I think it may be a bug brought about by an update or something. i have attached a picture for reference.
