Why did my instructable get cut out? Answered

It just disappeared during the voting from the contest. Is that because it got cut?

It was removed from the ThinkGeek contest because it doesn't have a new use for a ThinkGeek item. Instead you were recreating one.

It was. And I had it entered for about a week, it was on the list.

If you mean your music box pick-up, then it still has the contest banner, and is still on your page as a contest entry, so I guess that it's still in the contest.

I'm not a judge or admin for the contest, but unofficially I'd say that your entry was valid. Just edit the third line of your intro to say "I have made a pickup for the DIY music box".

Ah, the pill towel definitely doesn't qualify.

Maybe they accepted it because the project itself looked fine, but then they realised you weren't hacking the towels, you were recreating them.

"...As long as you used parts or pieces from our current (or old) offerings, yes indeed."

There still have to be TG products in there somewhere.

Maybe you could make the project in question "How to Re-Pill a Towel"? Use a TG towel and turn it back.
