    Umm... it means whenever one of the CL gets around to it, which once in a while might even be the following day unfortunately(sometimes we CL's are just busy... or slack....) ie, for best results, assume that you should be completed 1-2 days prior to the deadline to be safe... and then if you have any small, quick last minute tweaks to make that you can edit and post before the CL manages to lock the threads.

    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.

    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
