How to delete an Instructable? Answered

I published an instructable 1 year ago , and now I want delete that .
That was in a contest 1 year ago , so I see this error when I want delete that :

ERROR 401: Not authorized to delete this Instructable, as it is entered in at least one Contest.

How I can get it out of contest (That contest is for 1 year ago) , then delete it ?

admin help or just dont delete it I vote for just dont delete it because it would not only be a hassle to get it deleted but the history of the ible and such need to be deleted also because it is in the history of a contest.

That work just for instructables that they weren't in a contest. If you submit a instructable in a contest, you can't delete that with that way. You should contact to Admin.
