USB contest bug Answered

ok so i've been waiting to submit my usb contest entry since i heard about the contest, however when i tried to enter it it said i had no eligible instructables. When i republished my instructable, with technology: usb selected, and clicked to enter it into the contest it said that my instructable was published but it wasn't entered because the contest isnt open for entries... im assuming this is happening to other people because i would assume there would be more contest entries than 1. please help

What Ed wrote, and more:  "republishing" does not change the original publication date, nor should it.

The message is incorrect, but it's not a bug that your entry isn't being entered. You published your Instructable before the contest started and only Instructables that are published during the contest can be entered. That's why the announcement page said to wait.
