Contest clock wrong?

Post by Junk Deluxe » 13.01.2014, 19:34

According to the contest clock, the current contest (chemicals Q3) will end at midnight between saturday and sunday. Contests always ended midnight between friday and saturday, so is this a change or a mistake? Would be nice to know, no matter what it is :)

If it is a mistake, maybe we can get the clock corrected asap?
Its a game, have fun

Hi Junk Deluxe,

I suppose it's been an error with the contest setup. The contest clock is always the one you should go by, however, which means that this time, you have one further day to send in your products, it seems.

The ending date according to the contest clock is: (18.01.2014 23:59:59)

This is the one you need to go by. I have adapted the text in the newspaper, and set an info-fax for everyone to see.

I am sorry for the confusion this has caused!

Best regards,

pearlbay

My mistake. :lol:

I accidentally set the contest to last a day longer than usual.
The countdown timer is connected to the actual contest, the text in the paper is not part of the contest programming.
So if the dates in the paper and the countdown timer seem different, the one in the timer is the one you should go by. ;)

As it's not possible to change the countdown timer without resetting the entire contest, it'll just run a day longer. :)
