not able to submit an instructable

I tried to post a new instructable at 11.30PM PST on May 9th 2010. While it is uploading the pics, it just erased everything that I typed for the steps. I had to redo the entrie thing and at 11.55PM PST on May 9th 2010 I re-submitted the new instructable, for the paper cup contest. Now the site threw up saying that it cannot accept the instructable since deadline has crossed. According to the rules, the site should be able to accept entries till 11.59PM PST. It was so frustrating to see that my instructable cannot be posted after spending so many hours of hardwork..

Embed a github repo into an instructable?

When authoring an instructable, it says you can embed a github repo. I tried all the different URLs I could think of, but none of them worked in the preview. I ended up just linking to the code repo instead of embedding it. How the heck does one go about embedding the code directly? I don't want to have a second place to maintain the code, and it seems like embedding it should be fairly simple, but I must be missing something.

2 part instructable

I'm going to be making a 2 part instructable, where the first instructable can be branched off and help people make other instructables, and my second instructable is to make an "attachment" for my first instructable" Would the 2 be counted as 1? Or would the 2nd instructable be considered "incomplete".

Mysterious translated version of an Instructable published

I'm not sure what's going on, but... I submitted an Instructable on 30 June. It was subsequently featured in the technology section. A few hours ago, I noticed a new draft of that Instructable, all in Spanish. The Spanish version of the Instructable was just published a few minutes ago. I neither created the draft nor published the Spanish Instructable. Was the original Instructable translated by an administrator? Is this normal?

Update Instructable or make new Instructable? Answered

If you have revised a project that you wrote an Instructable for, is it common practice to update the instructable or write a new one? My changes are not really full 2.0 level, but they are a significant new step.  I have an Arduino based project, and I've pulled out the relatively expensive Arduino and replaced it with a dollar ATtiny85.
