Why cant New Zealand be elligable for the contests as well? Answered

Hi there,

I was just going through the rules and was saddened to see that New Zealand was not part of the group of countries able to enter the comps - this really sux as nz has such a diy mentality about it and would be a really great contributor to the comps.

So anyway why is it that the the brits and the aussies can participate but us kiwis cant???

thanks
Dan

Ahh i see. i wonder what a list would look like if you sort it by number of entrants per capita. If anything it would be another statistic to show the bosses :) could also be useful as a statistical number representing the "DIYness" of a country. Of coarse this would be mitigated by the awareness of instuctables statistic.

could look something like this

number of entrants divided by the population number multiplied by an awareness percentage.

well its early and just took my partner to the airport at 4 am and maybe i have that wrong - but you get the idea :)

thanks for the reply

The lawyers are working on getting everybody eligible, prioritising countries in order of members & numbers of contest entries that used to come from that country before Autodesk took over.

I think NZ is fairly high up the remaining list.
