Entering Answered

After you enter your project in the competition, it says that its "pending moderator aproval" how long does that take? because mine has said that for almost a week now, and I've been trying really hard to enter, and I tried to enter the forbes teach me fast, but that one was the same, and it missed the dead line

Do instructables need to be submitted before the deadline or moderated before the deadline?

I submitted my instructable pretty late (last night) for the Digital Days competition, by the rules i submitted before the deadline, but as it's still not appearing on the contest does this mean i basically can't enter?

It got accepted, + I tried to put the video up, and it didn't get accepted in time, so I deleted it, and removed it from youtube. I was already aware of the rules, because I actually read them. I had my video in 1080p Hi-Definiton, and for the forbes, i had submitted it well over a week ( somewhere around 10 days) before the deadline, all edited and complete just as the instructions said, I checked at least twice aday, morning, and late at night, and still NOTHING

I can only see that you have a Nightvision instructable published. The Forbes contest, now over, was for a video entry. You instructable would not have qualified to enter unless it was a 30-second video as per the entry rules. The instructable seems to have been thrown back at you to add a first image which it you added. Did you reply back to the admin or PM a staff member that you made the necessary changes so they can review it again? The staff usually shuts down on weekends and holidays to kitesurf so it takes a few days for the moderators to review entries for the contests before they show up. And sometimes the instructable is held up by the automatic filters based on keywords or content. A week seems excessively long but sometimes instructables can be stuck in the filters. Good luck.
