Did someone try gaming the Craftsman competition? Answered
I noticed a re-shuffle of some of the entrants. Thankfully great instructables like the https://www.instructables.com/id/Hidden_Treasure_Box_Inlaid_Wood_Box_with_Hidden_/ made it through even though they weren't in the top 30 at the time of closing - I stand to be corrected.
That all said, I think the popular vote alone is not the best mechanism for the first round of the competition.... ideas???
