I want to delete an Instructable that was published and entered in a contest last year but it says there is an error? Answered

Is there a way to stop this?

Once entered in a contest, an instructable cannot be deleted.

They should fix that. As the competition is no longer valid.

That's not an error - its a feature. A competition isn't valid if all the entries that didn't win suddenly disappear after the show - lots of contests are dependent on the number of entries for prizes - and if that isn't set in stone once the contest closes there is no history to explain why who won what.

Why delete it? The internet is an archive.
