Can't enter a contest Answered

I wrote a new instructable yesterday and wanted to enter the flower contest. However, it isn't displayed among the 'ibles eligible as entries. Any idea what to do with that?

Hi!

It is pending review :)

Sometimes it takes a while for admins to get through all the pending things each day, but it should be allowed in very soon. Please keep in mind we generally work 8 - 5 on Pacific Time.

Yes, the troubles started about 3 months after I registered here. I will contact you next time this happens, I'll try to make a screenshot. Thank you!

Hi, I know but that wasn't the problem. I uploaded the instructable, waited about 15 minutes and when I wanted to enter the contest, the instructable simply wasn't there among the eligible ones. A tried again just before writing this topic and again nothing. And then few hours after it was finally displayed among the eligible entries, so I entered it.

Ah.. that is odd. It seems like this comes up a lot for you! I'm sorry the site has been giving you trouble.

Next time something like this comes up, if you would shoot me a PM directly as soon as you're seeing something weird, I will try to investigate in real time.

Often, odd problems like this get ironed out when the site refreshes, which is typically every 20 minutes or so. You can expedite this by clearing your own cache and logging out and back in to see a fresh page. But I will take a closer look next time if it comes up again! :)

For now, you're in the flower contest and things look to me as expected. Good luck in the contest!
