Very sorry for the issues you’ve had. On our admin accounts there doesn’t seem to be the same issue, and your entries were all taken into consideration for judging, which finished last week and the winners were announced on the blog (http://blog.pinshape.com/3d-printed-creature-design-contest-winners/).
One thing to note is that some of your designs (including the Groot based models), violate copyright and were invalid entries, which makes them subject to removal from the contest.
Our CTO, Andre, is looking into the issue now and should have it corrected for this and future contests. The one thing to re-iterate is that the bug you are seeing did not affect the results of the contest, so I hope you don’t feel cheated in anyway.
We’ll let you know when it is fixed so you can verify for yourself. Again, sorry for the confusion.
Nick, COO & Co-Founder
