I was not smart and thought it was my timezone midnight which is central time.  Is there a way to have my story accepted? I worked so hard!  Cry

If it was under five minutes, or it was just now happening (modnight essentially) I'd say submit it anyway and see what happens, which I guess you could still do, but they likely won't take it.

However, you are still in round 2 even if you didn't submit for round 1.

And believe it or not, people with 0 points in round 1 have made enough points in round 2 to go on to round 3, so definitely write for round 2!!!

Also didn't realize this was Q&A forum, so they might come back with a different response.

The  deadline clock on the website was showing I had three more hours, when I clicked on it a few minutes ago it was closed.  I'm on the west coast - I worked all day on it - kept checking the time clock on the website I thought it was strange that it said I had more time (than the eastern deadline) 
what can we do?

I did send mine in a reply to the email but I don't know if they will get it.  I figured at least there would be proof as to when I finished.  I appreciate the post about still being able to get enough points to move on from the second challenge.
