Extension of Deadlines

Could I please ask whether there are any guidelines for when the deadline for entering the Apprentice Contests will be extended? I have twice sat up until about 4am finishing my chop, only to find, when I log in later in the morning, that there is now another 24 hours to go and I could have gone to bed and worked on it the next day.

I'm not complaining about the extension, but it would help to know a bit in advance.

We usually ad an extra day when there are not too many entries. This contest was started later and had only 6 entries hours before the submissions end, so we added extra 24 hours to submissions. Sorry about not notifying you in advance but such extensions are sporadic depending on the number of submissions and sometimes other factors (e.g. site downtime during submissions)

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

That's OK. Being on the other side of the world from you means that things sometimes come at inconvenient times. Deadlines being changed before midnight our time (i.e. 8 to 10 hours before original closing time) would help.

By the way, I am really enjoying being part of the FN community and entering the Apprentice Contests. Thank you for all the time and effort that you and the other administrators and jurors put into it.
