Hello, I hate to be "that gal" and I don't want to come off as whining; I just want the problem to be rectified. I entered (what I believe to be an awesome and imaginative) entry into the Brunch Contest. I received an email stating the entry was received. Entry was featured (so someone else thought it was awesome). But when I look on the page today (voting started today), I don't see my Instructable. I acknowledge that I have not received any email saying that my entry was accepted, but I don't see any reason why it would not. Can someone please help me out here? I don't mind coming in late; it is what it is. But, I think I have a good chance in this competition and I'd hate to lose out just because my Instructable was overlooked. Thanks anybody! https://www.instructables.com/id/Sweet-Sassy-Fun-Brunch-Cocktails-Treat/

Uh, Hello. I tried to enter my instructable into the game life contest and it has been pending moderator approval for about 2 weeks now. I also entered it into Make It Real contest and it was entered the next day. Why is it taking so long? P.S. The first time I tried to enter, it didn't work for some reason. I tried re-entering and it had been under approval for 2 weeks.

I entered my instructable in the pocket-sized contest on 18 July. I got the confirmation letter, and now that 48 hours have passed, would like to know why it seems to be rejected. It fits in every pocket I have on ordinary shirts, skirts, jeans, shorts, jackets, dresses, sweaters, and bathrobes. The letter says I can correct it and re-submit, but I don't know what is wrong!!! Help!!!

I have a question regarding an Instructable I wrote last week for entry into the Singer Kid's Craft Contest. After writing it and loading pictures, I checked it over and clicked on "publish". I even received an email thanking me for my submission to the contest. However, it never appeared anywhere. The child I did this Instructable with is very upset about this. She wanted to see her creation and the entry for the contest. Every time I check my profile, it says that I'm working on an Instructable. I tried to go back and re-publish it but it's too late. I even wrote an email to the Instructable Robot asking about it. Can anyone help me? I just want the entry to be in the contest and be able to get votes for it. Thanks!

Hello,I have noticed some time ago that when I enter an Instructable into a contest it doesn't work the first time and the instructable isn't listed as an entry even after a few days. I always had to re-enter and then it worked. Now it just doesn't work and that's it. I've entered my latest instructable three times between yesterday and today and nothing. I tried the fourth time now but I wanted to mention this already because there seems to be a problem. My instructable matches the topic 100% so I don't think it has been refused as an entry.

To whom it may concern: The official rules of the Food Science challenge state that "Entries for the Contest must be received by Sponsor by no later than 11:59 p.m. PT May 7". However, I am unable to enter my instructable even though it isn't midnight yet!! It is currently about 8:30 p.m. PT, so I should still have 3.5 hours left to submit my instructable. I've entered instructables last-minute for contests like this before and I haven't ever had any issues, so why is it different this time? Could somebody please let me know if I'm missing something, and if not how should I go about rectifying this issue and getting my entry in on time? I'll also be sending this to email@example.com, but that email takes several days to be answered so does anyone have a better method of getting in contact with Instructables staff quickly and easily? Thanks in advance, Chris

I entered the Playwood contest with a little playwood Icosahedron but the entry was rejected. Tried an Email to the support but from the forum replies it seems good to ask here too why it was reected... The contest states made from plywood, I used plywood and wood glue. Other entries don't even use any playwood, instead particle board or even MDF. Can someone please explain why particle board and MDF is fine while using plywood gives a rejection? I'm not desperate for the contest just totally fail to understand the reason for the reject ;)

I'm trying to enter one of my Instructables in the Halloween Costume Contest, and it keeps being sent to the Decorations one instead. I don't understand why this is so - I've made sure I was on the Costume Contest page and not the Decorations one, and yet the emails sent to me confirming my contest entry keeps saying "Decorations". Can anybody help me with this please? I also fear I might have double clicked the button so my entry might have been sent multiple times... is this okay...?

I am asking for some help, as I can not seem to enter my intructable into the fidget contest. I designed my spinner and published it today 7/8/2017 as an instructable, but it would not let me enter that specific contest. I could enter others. I went back into the instructions and as far as I can tell I did everything the way that it said I should. Any help would be appreciated. I manually added it to the contest but it has not shown up on the contest page, and it also now shows 2 instructables that I created that are the same. Thank you in advance for your help

I do not know whom & how to report this to so i decided to write it down & post it in the forum, yesterday i was browsing through "make it youth contest entries" & saw someone reposted an instructable to change the date & be able to enter in the contest,look it for yourself https://www.instructables.com/id/Battle-of-the-Fuels/ He simply changed name & all the content still matches to his other instructable . i would not consider it as a fair practice to repost stuff so you can enter a damn contest the rest lays in your hand's Regards Bobblehead Einstein

Europe's first Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Jules Verne successfully completed its six-month ISS logistics mission today with its controlled destructive re-entry over a completely uninhabited area of the South Pacific. Following a final deorbit burn at 14:58 CEST which slowed its velocity by 70 m/s, the ATV entered the upper atmosphere at an altitude of 120 km at 15:31 CEST. It broke up at an altitude of 75 km with the remaining fragments falling into the Pacific some 12 minutes later. The words and pictures are from the ESA website, but I got first notice from SpaceWeather.

I am trying to enter the father's day contest with this, https://www.instructables.com/id/Supersized-Jenga-game/ But I keep getting a message that says my instructable was posted before the contest started. When I was posting the instructable the toy contest and epilog contest had the same message. So I published the instructable and then I tried to enter the contests. The epilog and toy contests worked fine but the fathers day contest continues to give me the same rejection message.

The page with the listet contests shows different entries, then the page of a single contest itself. My own entry to a contest raised the number in the contestpage itself, but not in the overview page. Furthermore my entry isn't even visible in the contest page The same happens with the number of views on any instructable

Is it possible to change the moderated contest entry process? I think it would be better if we could enter a contest on a probationary basis when we post an instructable. That way viewers can vote on recent instructables. If the instructable doesn't meet the contest criteria then the entry is cancelled, no harm, no foul. It seems that there are times when contest acceptance is slower (weekends).

I recently posted an Instructable for two contests two days ago, and it still seems to have not gone through. It does meet all of the requirements for both contests, yet I do not see my entry on the contest entries page. One of the contests ends in a week, and I am getting a bit worried that the Instructable won't make it before the deadline. I have read the answers some are giving here at Instructables, such as waiting for 1-2 business days or waiting until after the weekend or after major holidays, but I have not received any email or confirmation that my entry has been accepted for the contest. Should I be concerned, or should I just wait a few more days (since it's still New Year's)? Thanks!

Hey. I published my instructable, and entered it in the pocket sized contest over a week ago. There's no reason it wouldn't be accepted, and I even got an e-mail telling me my entry was accepted. So why is my instructable nowhere? I looked through every single page of recent, rating, views etc and it isn't anywhere. Hell, even when I type the exact words into the search (of the title) it doesn't appear. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've been working for the past few hours on finishing an instructable to enter in the Make it Glow contest. I've been having constant problems with the editor locking up and getting "Failed to save" errors all night. Most of the time the editor sites for a while and eventually allows me to save but more then once now the editor has completely locked up and not saved a good portion of what I had done. I'm rushing to get this knocked out but it's making it a little difficult. (I know... I probably shouldn't be trying to finish and publish last minute but there's only so much time in a day:) ) I'm just curious if anyone else is having any issues and if there's anyone with any suggestions. THANKS!

Alright for lack of a better name for now this is just TheDunkis' Assault Pistol. It's a compact pistol made specifically for war. I did make a video but I can't upload it using my mom's computer so...yeah. Anyways they're three things that make this the almost ideal war weapon.1. It's compact. Usually no wider than the average person at the age of...I don't know I'm skinny so probably a 12 year old lol so it should be easy enough to carry around as a secondary weapon.2. High Cap magazine. It holds I think around 25 green rods. I know green rods aren't the best rounds but typical wars happen in homes where distance doesn't count as much and for bigger battles it would be more of a secondary weapon.3. Removable magazine. It's based off of Zak's from KI. It clips in and out really easily but it's really sturdy so it should never fall out even if you're shaking it around.Alright so as I figured the gun wasn't enough to make it through. I still wanted my own assault pistol that works though (I'm hoping that we shift over from side arms to these as they'll be easier to make original). This is based off of the original in some design like the handle. It uses what I believe to be the first slanted and open magazine for blue rods. Why slanted? Simple three reasons. 1. It looks kind of cool. 2. It acts as a hand guard. 3. It's keeps it compact so it's not sticking out but it also feeds ammo towards the front more so that it gets more power. That's the main reason anyways. I have plans for this gun if I keep it around anyways. This is the simplest design with no special details or anything but I'm hoping to make a smaller and larger version with extra features. For example the larger will most likely shoot yellows possibly with a removable magazine and a stock. The smaller will use white rods maybe with a slide and maybe with the magazine in the handle (although with a similar open mag style. I figured it out I just need to figure out how to connect them).Here's what I rate this new version compared to the old one. *newer version1. Size Efficient. 4/5 It's compact but not as small as it can be. *4/5 It's pretty much as compact as it will get but you could make it ultimately smaller.2. Power and Range efficiency. 3/5 At the moment it's about average but I havn't really perfected the firing system. Sometimes it doesn't even fire well at all so I have some work to do. * 4/5 It's a whole lot better now. It's decently powerful for its size but obviously not a sniper or anything.3. Accuracy. 3/5 I haven't honestly tested it a lot yet only enough to know that it fires but by the time I'm done hopefully this should updated to be a 4 even though it's more of a CQC gun. * 4/5 I tested it a couple of times and it hits very close with the sight I'm using. Still not perfect.4. Easy, fast loading. 5/5 With removable magazine that is super easy to put in and pull out this is one of those "as good as it gets" in the fast loading department. * 3/5 Ugh this is where it fails. The good news is that it's still pretty to load. All you need to do is push blue rods through the barrel. No need to be precocked nor do you need to hold the pusher down just push the blue rods in and down. Should hold about 10 blue rods maybe more.5. Handling. 4/5 pretty standard I guess. The handle ain't bad and the trigger is smooth enough. So far the gun doesn't work the way it should but that will be fixed before I'm done obviously. The magazine area makes for a good forehandle when not using the shroud. * 4/5 Still pretty standard expect I traded around a couple things. The angled magazine does not make for a good foregrip. It works but I don't care for it. The handle is the same but the back was changed to be a little more comfortable. The trigger works better.6. Cocking. 3/5 Not super bad and not super good. I'm not sure if I should put a slide on or not. * 3/5 same old same old.7. Looks. This is another one of those love it or hate it things but I think it looks good all but the support on the bottom which I put on for more of function than looks but I do think the gun looks better with it. * I'm not sure which I like better. I struggled with the looks on this one for awhile and tried adding a lot of pieces. I finally ended up getting rid of pieces instead until I finally got what I wanted. I think this version looks better good.8. Reliability 2/5 So far I'm not going to lie the gun isn't the best but like I said it ain't working right by the time I'm done I'll make sure it's working 99.9% 5/5 The only problem so far is that sometimes two shots try to go at once and they just fall out from the friction. It only happens if you don't load the ammo right. Edit: Fixed updated design doesn't jam anymore.9. Other features. +1 (judged on about how good the extra features are. Anything that doesn't fit above will be included in the score which will add the amount of points as a bonus into the final score) It has a simple rail nothing to special and a simple mock silencer shroud for the barrel with a forehandle. I think it makes it look better but bigger. * +1 this version doesn't have anything super special. The best is the open magazine which I figure deserves a +1 on it's own considering how useful they are.God any other ideas for my newer gun? I'll probably want to post but I also want to work on a Master Sword V2 really soon and I need all my pieces for it. I might go out and buy another bucket soon but if I don't then this might go by by. I'll try getting a video as soon as I find what I need for the camera>computer hook up for videos. How do you think it would compare to the BBKWG and Spiff (along with the other APs those are just the most popular)?

There is a contest I want to enter, so I looked at the current entries. I see that one entry is using an image from a blog. I have every reason to believe the blog does NOT belong to this member. - The member does not have a link to the blog in their profile. - The name used for their entry is not the same name as on the blog. - The materials and steps have been changed from the published blog. I don't want to wrongfully accuse someone of cheating, but if they are, I'd like to do something about it. At the very least, the rules state that; "Entries must not have been published prior to the Start Date" - In this case the entry was previously published. Can someone tell me what I should do? * Post Question Note * - There really should be more than one "best answer" option, because in this case I did receive a lot of help from Kiteman, and wanted to acknowledge that here. Kiteman went above and beyond to help out with this. (He'll be receiving a patch from me shortly).

So I was hanging out with some buddies of mine in my spartan costume...betcha can't guess which one is me. My costume consists of: Helmet - Cardboard shape, covered in bondo and spraypainted. Bicycle helmey pads inside. Shield - Cut plywood, with a cardboard lambda, covered in bondo and spraypainted. Polyester straps are riveted/gorilla glued on the back. Cape - Scarlet cotton fabric with polyester straps to keep it from choking me. Beard/abs - Mom's eyebrow pencil...If you have experience with spirit gum, use that and fake hair, unfortunately, it didn't cooperate with me. Pantalones - If you're feeling frisky, wear a speedo, if not, brown shorts are acceptable

Sorry, i forgot last weeks. 10/18/09 The KI army has gotten fiercer. A lot fiercer. They are building MASS amounts of guns. They hire outsiders such as people who never heard of K'NEX guns, but heard of K'NEX. I think it is because they have such a small army. I have switched my BR-18 to a BR8 because i needed a lighter gun. I just carry a bunch of ammo around. My current weapons are: BR8 Oodassault V3.3 T.B.O.S O.S.S.R I've got a pouch of ammo for each. My vehicle for transporting and gun storage has broke down. I called a repairman to fix it a hour ago. It should've taken 10 minutes. 10/19/09 The IN army woke up to a attack on our camp. Everybody grabbed all the ammo and thier best guns and got out and fought. I was truely fierce. The medic team was all out and, suprsingly, a lot of people got bandages and started recovering. As for the KI army, Thier medid slacked out, so thier still are people limping off the field.
