Contest Entry Submission Process Issue
The contest system does not allow for additional contest entries to be submitted if there is already an entry in the Awaiting Approval state. This prevents users from submitting multiple entries and from correcting errors in their entry before the deadline.
On LEGO Ideas Contests, the “How It Works” section of the rules state that “We recommend submitting your entry 2-3 days before the deadline in the event we have to return it to you for changes. “ Most contests end on Monday which means that 2-3 days before the deadline is during the weekend and the Moderation staff does not work on weekends. (Don’t worry, we all understand a break is needed after all that hard work!) If a user needs time for revisions, they must submit their entry up to 6-7 days before the deadline or more if they have multiple entries ready to go.
I am aware of many LEGO Ideas users who have been caught in this issue and were prevented from correcting their entry/submitting all of their entries before the contest ended.
I am looking forward to seeing this issue resolved soon!
