Max Contest Entries Answered

There has been some question about the max number of contest entries allowed in the contest FAQ forum. There are few ibles that have won a Halloween contest and then are entered in more contests that equal more than 3 total contests. Until now, it seemed that Halloween  was the exception to the rule. However, with this example, it seems that there is a bug in the contest entry system. This ible has won a contest and is entered in 4 more.

I'm mostly trying to ease the minds of those in the FAQ forum. This is the first example I've seen where you could currently vote for it in more than three contests, so it actually seems to be a bug of some sort.

If you go through the page of the Instructable itself it will allow you to enter more than three but after that you have to go to the contest page and second the "entry submission" and then it is available for review and able to be accepted.

But the Rules of every contest state that no instructable can be entered into more than 3 contests so if you can get around that then it is a bug or the moderators should be more vigalent in policing this.

Yes I know it is against the rules but I am just letting the mods know that is how it is happening.
