if you submitted the piece on the 29th (as in it's in YOUR gallery as of the 29th, it still counts.) Just because they posted the close date, doesn't mean you couldn't have submitted your piece on the 29th and still have it accepted as there was no time, just any time on the 29th.

no they didn't so it should be open all day, it's not fair on people who only have a limited amount of time to access the internet for whatever reason- and i had a ton load of homework to do

yeah, that is pretty confusing as well cos we have no idea what time zone they're in so we can't tell when exactly it's closed :/

I figured we would have all day also :/ I had to go out of town today so I thought I would have time to finish it once I got home but sadly they never told us the time....which isn't cool.

As it said the 29th, you could've easily still had your piece accepted if it was posted on the 29th. If you did not upload it, then I am sorry but we can't help you. Yes it's unfortunate that there was no time displayed, however, when it say sept 29th really it's as long as you post it on that day regardless of time. Anything after the 29th wouldn't count, regardless of time zone. We will make sure there's a time in the future, but maybe next time make sure your entry is at least posted to your gallery on the finish date to insure that it's accepted if by some chance it happens again where we have no time displayed.

Was your contest entry uploaded at all on the 29th of september (regardless of time)? if so please link me too it asap and i will include it.

Hi there, founder! may I make a suggestion for future reference? ... as the group has a supergroup status, it can make use of the "Countdown timer" widget ... that way, with the contest countdown timer displayed on the group page, there should be no confusion over the different time zones, as the contest deadline will then be pegged to one specific time-zone (dA's) ...

I didn't post it because the title said it was closed so I just decided to forget it since I had to get up early anyways. I know when a time isn't specified the contest is supposed to be open until the end of the day, but when I saw it said 'closed' I took it to mean no more entries were being accepted as no one had indicated otherwise.

Thank you for featuring our contest! It's very much appreciated.

It appears we qualify for the WP, but I'm not sure how to go about that. Do we have to send a note to the group saying we want the package, or do we have to do something else?

:iconlandiddy:
landiddy Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup! Just send a note to the group. One of the higher-ups with either get back to you or just take note of it (I'm not sure-- that's their job lol). But just go ahead and make the request, and when the contest ends, let them know who the winners are :)

Im still confused a bit, so can we just anything if its based on romance at night? is there some criteria to follow? And is the examples above all the entries so far?
Reply
:icontheblackbullets:
TheBlackBullets Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It doesn't have to be about romance. There are a couple of people who just wanted to see fireflies, and one person had a character who wanted a friend to become real (in a sense.)
