Anyone else have trouble with the website trying to submit at the last minute?  (I know I know should have submitted earlier, but I'm on the west coast so it's only 9 and I had a busy week).  It finally uploaded but it was about 3 or 4 minutes past the deadline.  Do you think that'll be disqualified?

That stinks, I nearly missed it myself for no good reason.

I can't say for certain but I would definitely email them and let them know you had technical difficulties. I can't imagine them taking issue with a couple minutes.

Fingers crossed for ya. Good luck

as long as they are aware of the problems and see the time your story was submitted, within minutes, it shouldn't be a problem..
Writing is easy, just open a vein and bleed out the words.

Thanks, guys!  Fingers crossed, and at any rate at least these contests always force me to sit down and actually produce something.

I had submission problems on Saturday, as well.  I also live on the west coast.  My submission finally went through by 9:15 PDT…  Sucked...

I think if you sent the safety e-mail dated around that time, you should be OK ...

Thanks!  I definitely doubled down and sent the safety e-mail as soon as the website started giving me trouble, and I noted that I was having some issues.  Hopefully they'll see the time stamps (like 9:05 or so west coast time) and it won't be so egregious to DQ me, but I'd totally understand if they did.  Still, it's not like those 5 extra minutes would have been meaningful if I'd still been writing!

Just got the confirmation e-mail -- phew!  Tad, I hope yours went through as well!
