How many instructables can I enter into one contest? Answered

I only know that I can enter more than 1 instructable in 1 contest, but is there a specific limit?  I am also aware that even if I enter more than 1 instructable only 1 of them can win.

H E L P! Password troubles with this site

I have had troubles with password resets. i am ranting about this because your password re-set tool is off. every time i login i have to reset my password because it says my password has been changed. this happens even if i sign out right after i created a new password. this has happened constantly for the past week. i love this site but my tolerance is being cut short. please email me at nuckthebuck@aol.com or at least leave a reply so i know someone even reads these.  if your tech support contact me or lose a few instructables in the making if this isnt fixed soon. ill explain more if i get at least 1 reply from a pro member or an administrator or from tech support. i was using google chrome o/s windows 7 for everyone else with this problem. i fixed it by the help of someone below. sorry cant remember your name. i fixed it wb going to the tool icon drop down menu>history>edit history>delete all browsing information>check mark all boxes> enter>re-login should work =]

Wanted intructable - "Convert an Aquarium Air Pump into a Vacuum Pump"

Hey all - Wanted intructable: "Convert an Aquarium Air Pump into a Vacuum Pump" I know this is pretty simple - probably... as well to add to that a mod... "Convert a Aquarium Air Pump into an Adjustable Vacuum Pump" I'm trying to build something else and would like to see how this is done - i have one shot at one Aquarium air pump and don't want to mess it up. Plus i'd like to know how to regulate the vacuum  - make it with adjustable vacuum pressure if possible - if i even really need to or at least regulate the vacuum pressure so it is not too much if it is after built. I'm sure i could do a google and find all the parts - thinik tank it out and build it... but if you know already how to do it - makes things a tad easier for me. The instrucable even easier to avoid mistakes. thanx - chase -

My intructable isn't showing up in the contest, how can it get votes if it's not posted?

Please check out my instructable on customizing your own guitar. I put my instructable in before the deadline. Why isn't it showing up? Seams like if you can't get them out there then you should have a day between entry deadline and voting. Maybe it'll be in there today?

When making instructables, if you have more than 10 steps what happens to the remaining steps?

 I just published an instructable which had 11 steps.  The 11 show at the top, but when looking at the steps down the page, only 10 show.  Did i do something wrong? is there a limit? or is there just something up and I don't understand what it is?  Thanks!
