I am a winner for the HALLOWEEN Photo Editing But have not heard from INSTRUCTABLES

Hi all, I am still new to the site, so not sure how some things work. I am a winner in the Halloween Photo Editing, but have not been  informed by INSTRUCTABLES that I have been, nor have they contacted me for an address to send my prize to.  I contacted a site intern via her page two days ago and have not heard from her either. I do not even know how to contact them for an answer on this. Can someone please direct me to how to claim my prize, or how to even be informed that I have been. This is the instructable.... And this is showing me as one of the winners... Thank you for your assistance, BW

And the winner is...

It's that time of year again - the Annals of Improbable Research has announced the 2010 IgNobel Prizes. It makes you proud to be British.... The full list of winners: Engineering Prize: Karina Acevedo-Whitehouse (UK) and colleagues for perfecting a method to collect whale snot, using a remote-control helicopter. Medicine Prize: Simon Rietveld (Netherlands) and colleagues for discovering that symptoms of asthma can be treated with a roller-coaster ride. Transportation Planning Prize: Toshiyuki Nakagaki (Japan) and colleagues for using slime mould to determine the optimal routes for railroad tracks. Physics Prize: Lianne Parkin (New Zealand) and colleagues for demonstrating that, on icy footpaths in wintertime, people slip and fall less often if they wear socks on the outside of their shoes. Peace Prize: Richard Stephens (UK) and colleagues for confirming the widely held belief that swearing relieves pain. Public health Prize: Manuel Barbeito (US) and colleagues for determining by experiment that microbes cling to bearded scientists. Economics Prize: Awarded to the executives and directors of Goldman Sachs, AIG, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, and Magnetar for creating and promoting new ways to invest money — ways that maximize financial gain and minimize financial risk for the world economy, or for a portion thereof. Chemistry Prize: Eric Adams (US) and colleagues for disproving the old belief that oil and water don't mix. The research, supported by BP, was published under the title: "Review of Deep Oil Spill Modeling Activity Supported by the Deep Spill JIP and Offshore Operator's Committee". Management Prize: Alessandro Pluchino (Italy) and colleagues for demonstrating mathematically that organisations would become more efficient if they promoted people at random. Biology Prize: Libiao Zhang (China) and colleagues for scientifically documenting fellatio in fruit bats.

Unfeatured Winners

11 of the 26 winners in the How to Play a Game contest were not featured. Were there really not 26 feature-worthy ibles, or were at least some of them overlooked?

Contest winner medals

I miss the old contest winner banners at the top of the IBLES.  I realize that there is now a medal at the top right corner of the IBLE next to where the featured medal is.  My question is would it be possible to get the contest winner medal to link to the contest that they won?

Placing a "WINNER" Mark on instructables that won a challenge or contest

Don't you find it a good idea to easily identify instructables that were able to win a contest or challenge? Maybe a good idea is to place a "WINNER" Mark on these instructables. The idea is similar to those featured instructables that is marked as "FEATURED"

Shipments from Instructables lacking...

A while back i was a co-first place winner of the Kit Design Challenge that ended on June 7th. It took over a month for the prize to ship. I got confirmation of the shipment form the Instructables Robot on July 17th. I found it odd that no tracking number for the shipment was included in the message. It has now been nearly a month later and i have not received the package yet. I also won a prize in the Spy Challenge around the same time frame. That prize pack shipped on July 11th and was receive about 2 weeks later. Once again the message confirming the package had been sent did not have a tracking number in it. I had to sign for that package so i know there was a tracking number available. There is more to that story but that's something i need to bring to Fedex's attention. So is there any way the confirmation messages can start including the tracking numbers for the shipments? Also is there any way i can get the tracking number for the missing package so i can look into what the problem is?  If the package was sent via Fedex (like the last one was) then i'm starting to have a serious issue with how Fedex runs things and will have to make a complaint to them. It shouldn't take over 4 weeks for even the cheapest shipping option to go from CA to MD. It can be trucked across the US in a weeks time. Any help anyone can give me on tracking this done, or letting me know who i need to talk to to help improve the way these things are handled, would be greatly appreciated.

Issues with signing 'Winners declaration and release' form with DocuSign

Hi, I have already contacted instructables about these issues last week and they are trying to fix them however I am hoping in the mean time some past contest winners and other members could help me with my issues with signing the document 'Winners declaration and release' sent to me by email using DocuSign after I recently won a contest. The first problem that I am having is that the document requires two separate different signatures, mine (the winner) and my parent/guardian's (required because I am under 18 years old) however the DocuSign interface will only let me sign the same signature in both locations however this is not what is requested by the form, I am not even sure if it is even possible to sign two separate different signatures on the same form using the DocuSign interface. The second issue is that my SSN number is requested on the form but as I'm not from America so I do not have an SSN number, fortunately in the email that I got with the link to sign this form I was told that 'if international, enter all 0 for SSN' so I attempted this but this SSN (000-00-0000) was 'invalid' and would not be accepted by DocuSign, after experimenting I discovered that the each 'segment' of the SSN must have a value greater than 0 for it to be valid and accepted by DocuSign meaning that the SSN 001-01-0001 was accepted but as I am international I have to 'enter all 0 for SSN' but as I've just demonstrated this is 'invalid' so I cannot complete this form for this reason as well. If anyone else could assist on these issues I will be very grateful, thanks, Alex Maund EDIT: after receiving a third reminder to sign the form by autodesk, I have got impatient and submitted the form with the same signature (my parent's) in both places as this is the only option that I can do and there have been no visible signs of progress with the fixing of the mentioned issues in over a week so I hope that the form I have submitted is OK and valid as this is the best I can do. I managed to get the SSN 000-00-0000 accepted when I opened the document used my iPad and the IOS version of DocuSign's website.

12-year-old wins design contest with plastic dome

Design competitions aren't just for adults, as 12-year-old Max Wallack has proved by winning $10,000 for his plastic dome for the homeless built with trash.Twelve-year-old Max Wallack of Natick spent a day last week being followed around by television cameras, hanging out with engineers and building a model of his latest invention: A shelter for the homeless made from plastic, wire and packing peanuts.The folks at the WGBH show "Design Squad" selected Wallack's idea from more than 1,000 entries for their Trash to Treasure contest. As the grand prize winner, he will receive $10,000 from the Intel Foundation and a laptop computer.While the action is noble, I have to wonder what homeless person would ever use this. Here in San Francisco we have our fair share of homeless folks on the street and the basic cheap camping tent seems to be the home of choice. It folds up and can be carried around in a shopping cart. Any time there is some encampment that is big enough, or around for long enough, it gets broken up by the police and everyone moves along, making this useless.Also curious is why the dome keeps getting called a yurt.
