Ah, I only just found out that the deadline had been extended by a month through another user's forum post. I assume you didn't send out emails or anything because I never got one, would it not be sensible to inform people via email or similar? We may not have known otherwise! Not sure if I'm fond of extending the deadline so close to the end either, means we have to restructure a lot of planning and alter the scope quite a great deal. At least it will give those that entered later a better chance to compete, bit of a kick in the teeth to those pacing their time out from the start though.
Rant over anyway! Good luck to any new and existing entrants, you'll all do great!
