PostPosted: Tue Dec 14, 2010 7:14 pm   Post subject: Contest 3 Start Time

Hello.

Excuse me if this was asked somewhere, but I just noticed today that the next contest was scheduled for "Wednesday December 15, 2010 At 08:15PM EST" . Looking back at the calender, the previous contests apparently started later in the evening too.

Of course, all the contests so far where at 3:15 EST. I'm wondering if this is a problem at all.

Thanks

I think it may just be a bug but I am not sure...

Right now it's 7:35 EST .
"The next contest will start in 1 Days 0 Hours 39 Minutes 33 Seconds"

If that timer is actually what starts the contest, there might be an issue. You'd know better than me, of course.

This is what my ContestCP says...

The server time is Tuesday December 14, 2010 At 07:54PM EST as of the last page refresh.

Is this a problem for everyone?

However, this is what it says above that:

It seems that when syncing the dwite database to the cloud the times got changed. Went from 15:15:00 to 20:15:00.

The issues should now be fixed.
