normally when I set a date, I close the contest the day after, sometimes early in the day (and I'm in CET+1) sometimes late depending on how busy I am.
So concerning the current challenge, do I have the sunday, the 27th for some final details or do I have to wrap it up tomorrow? I am also at +1 GMT
As JF said, we can't tell you for sure. It just depends when a CL gets around to doing it. If you want to be super safe, then do it at the earliest possible date you have calculated that the challenge might close.
OK, so I will make a final 'WIP' tomorrow evening, just in case ;)
Good idea! And then if the challenge doesn't close, you can put taps on the sinks :)
Hi, there its timezone +1 Here in Germany, but there is still somewhere on planet earth a person who have +11 more hours than I to stay on 29th Feb, can I used those timeline for my entry? Its still somewhere on Earth 29. Feb so I guess.
The challenges are not automated and on a clock, one of the CLs closes it when he has the time for it. So most times the challenge runs a few hours or even days longer than announced. Yet you should not count on it. It is possible that it is closed on the day mentioned as final day. So it is a good idea to upload some final WIP a day or two before the challenge is officially done...
I'm in GMT+1 as well, and when I'm closing a challenge I usually do it the morning after the day announced to give everyone maximum time to finish. But as EP says - its up to the individual and sometimes you have a conflicting scedule that pushes your hand :)
Old thread, but I guess it's the place to ask .... when does each new challenge start? The official (first of the month to the last 5 days) statement doesn't seem to be applying this month. Is it just whenever the right person finds time to post one? Will it still end at the end of the current month, or does it always get 4 weeks?
