There's a lot of things we can and will improve for sure - we want to implement a submission process within your contest topic where you get to "send in" your final. It would only accept the correct size so you can't mess it up and would flag your topic as "completed" or something letting us know the entry is valid for easy review. This would also make it so we wouldn't have to check the date and time of the last update to see if it was sent in on time.
We still need to go through each topic to check no funny business is going on but this would def save a ton of time and would give you guys better confirmation the thing is sent in and your work is done.
Just to be clear though, no entry was missed in the ArtWar! It took a while but every single topic was checked.
Only those who respected the submission rules 100% stand a chance at winning.
