Food Science Challenge closed, even though it's not midnight on May 7th yet?? Answered

To whom it may concern:

The official rules of the Food Science challenge state that "Entries for the Contest must be received by Sponsor by no later than 11:59 p.m. PT May 7". However, I am unable to enter my instructable even though it isn't midnight yet!! It is currently about 8:30 p.m. PT, so I should still have 3.5 hours left to submit my instructable. I've entered instructables last-minute for contests like this before and I haven't ever had any issues, so why is it different this time? 

Could somebody please let me know if I'm missing something, and if not how should I go about rectifying this issue and getting my entry in on time? I'll also be sending this to info@instructables.com, but that email takes several days to be answered so does anyone have a better method of getting in contact with Instructables staff quickly and easily?

Thanks in advance, 

Chris

I entered on time for the Food Science Challenge, but my entry did not show up in the contest. My entry is Superfoods eggroll- gluten- free. If you can help me out with this I would appreciate it. Thanks. TR

Oh no! It has not closed, you are correct. I'm having no trouble with this interface. Can you tell me a bit more about what's happening (what browser you're using, etc)?

In the meantime, feel free to PM me with your entry - and anyone else who has a problem with this! - and I will be sure they get considered for entry.

I'm using Chrome as a browser, but I'll try in FireFox as well. I've attached some screenshots of what I'm seeing. The problem I'm having is that looking at the contest implies that entries are no longer accepted and voting has begun. When I'm editing the instructable and I go to "Add to contest" on the side, all the current contests except the Food Science challenge are listed. This is also true when I go to Publish-->Add to contest.
