Pocket-Sized closes for entries Sunday night! Answered

In less than two days, the Pocket-Sized Speed Contest will be closing for entries. After that there's a few days of voting and then we see who won! This has been one of the most popular and interesting contests we've had so far. I've been loving the entries and look forward to see what comes in at the last minute. I couldn't even resist entering in something of my own with my eraser flash drive. I can't win anything, but I just wanted to take part. Good luck!

time flies when you're having fun. Or Kermit's perspective: Times are fun when you're having flies. :-)

Times are fun when you are having flies applies only to frogs (they eat flies) ;-)

If you're having trouble with your flies, you should switch to buttons - they're safer.

So...... Is my computer screwy or did the deadline get extended to April third? I think there might be a bug in the contest system...

I was wondering the same thing... So the contest ended yesterday, and voting goes until April 3rd, right?

There is a bug, but that's not exactly it. Since people can only vote while it's open for entries, I pushed the entry date back, but it's locked for new entries. We're still breaking in the new contest system and will have some changes up soon.

Ohh, okay!

Sigh... you got my hopes up. My schedule just got a lot lighter (in terms of the amount of work my teachers are assigning) and I just thought of a killer entry!

It'll be posted, regardless =)

I hope I win. It would be a first. But still, I hope you all do well. :)

I am not doing well, so in all honesty, I do hope you win, even if it is only the random pick. Mine was a bit commonplace...

I'm praying, mainly because for four nights in a row I've had to open all my beers with a lighter, after 123 bottles the Bic started leaking... I actually need the prize lol

Now mine, I don't have more than about 6-9 views *sigh* but that is ok, it was not as innovative as it could have been :-)

I think my pocket sewing kit needed a flame thrower to burn off the loose threads to be something to sit up and take notice of :-)

besides, I refuse to beg for anyone to even just view mine, maybe I needed some scantily clad bovines to liven it up some ?

It was a cross between a Presidential slogan and an instructables ad campaign. For Example: Obama '08, or Hillary '08, or McCain '08.

Entries close at midnight PST. Due to a quirk in our current system, the contest will look open for a few more days, but that's just to keep the voting open. It's a bug we plan to fix soon.

Message to Fungus Amungus: Why haven't my Instructables that I posted 32 hours ago for contests still not shown as contest entries?
