Six weeks from when it started would be about June 14, I believe.


Heyyy don't confuse anyone now! We don't want people to keep adding time after the six
weeks are up. :P It should be over at midnight of June 12 (in other words, the night of
June 11). That would be exactly six weeks. Am I right about that? That's what Jeff said
too. But I want to make sure...

Edit: Actually, that makes me wonder, what's gonna stop people from adding time after
it's over?


Well, we gotta believe that all people here are honest and faithful to their own principles. If they cheat the only ones really losing are themselves. I personally believe that all those in the challenge are good hard-working people, you will probably have no problems with that! :)

The bot will stop working on June 12th. The only issue is that everyone is supposed to
stop at midnight between June 11th and June 12th HIS TIME, so people in some time zones
are able to post in the early hours of June 12th if they don't respect this.

I didn't mean that they would do it on purpose. :P I mean that some people might do it
because they don't know when it's supposed to be over.

Edit: nevermind. The last post answered all our questions. :)

Wait one more question. XD It stops working at 12am June 12th of a specific time zone?

Right---when it began, the bot was operational before we (in North America) were technically allowed to begin; that would imply that it would stop before we are officially unable to post anymore.

Right. That's why I want to know by what time exactly I need to submit everything.

I think Sprachprofi's post implies that she's allowed for the bot to continue working until the last user must stop posting, allowing some people to continue posting for a few hours past their official deadline.
