Voting on entries that are entered in multiple contests Answered

When an entry is entered in multiple contests, what decides which banner appears above. I have an entry in the hack it contest and the off grid contest. The banner above it is for the hack it contest, so it won't get as many votes for the off grid contest which is in the voting stage.
Is it possible for instructables to change it so that the banner is for the contest ending soonest/altready in the voting stage rather than the most recently entered contest ?

The banner up top displays one of the contests you are entered in, right now there is no way to change or alternate this.

Your entry will show up on all contest pages on which it is entered where people can also vote for it. If you are worried about a specific contest you are welcome to put a link to the contest page you are most interested in the project ad direct people there to vote.

Thanks for replying. It does seem to put multple entries at a slight disadavntage, because entries into only one contest banner will always have the vote option above it for that contest, but multiple entries will not get that opportunity. I suspect the majority of votes come from the banners rather than people going through the contest entries.

It's not a huge problem, but I thought I'd point it out and see if there's a solution,

Thanks,

I'm not sure what decides which banner appears. It may be whichever entry has been accepted first or some other method is used.

Perhaps a staffer could answer this one.

It would be nice to have some option to select one banner over another or have them rotate out to allow for votes into the other contests...
