Removed from contest after acceptance? Answered

Hello:

I've had one of my instructables accepted in the Holiday Gifts and Shopbot Challenges. Today, in my account it only shows it as entered in holiday gifts, and no where to be found in shopbot.  Can you be rejected after acceptance?

If you have any questions regarding entry criteria or if your entry was not accepted it is best to PM Carleyy

Previously, when I go to MY ACCOUNT page, it would show all the contests I'm entered in, and showed the instructable in both contests, now just the one. (I'm not talking about at the top of the instructable itself, but in my account.

It has again appeared in the contest entries itself, but is still no showing on my account page anymore. *shrug* oh well. no biggie.

They recently changed the format of your YOU page. There is one contest entry and image but if you look at the image caption, you have two contest names listed - no punctuation or separator and the names can scroll off you if have more images/entries or the contest title is really long. I think you are good to go. Good luck.

Previously, every contest that you were in had an entry, so you would have had a duplicate image to show entry in two contests. I guess this cleans up the profile a bit, especially for those ahem, multiple-entry- multi-use ibles.

That's it! Thanks so much! Weird. It says "ONE ENTRY" but the contest names run together and scrolled off. Thanks again!

Yes, an I'ble can be removed from a contest after initial acceptance for various reasons -- it's found to not actually meet the contest criteria, or or it plagiarized from somewhere, or something else.

The way the contest banner is set up to show on an individual I'ble, only one of the up-to-three contests will be displayed. I don't know if it's the same one every time, or if all three rotate.

Did you actually check the two contests' own pages, and did you look at your own member page? The latter shows the I'ble in both contests. It is on page 6 of Holiday Gifts and page 3 of Shopbot Challenge (as of today).

I ts in both (there's two blind-vote for you). On the main page it seems that the page-script can only display the primary contest, but it's there elsewhere.

Theoretically possible, depending on the exact circumstances.

I can't see an obvious reason - best to email service@instructables.com to ask what's up.
