With all due respect, do you live by military time, or somewhere where time is calculated differently, because.. wow. That's a new one.

This is a super common mistake, not a "new one" at all. I mess this up all the time.

From personal experience, I do see people confuse 12 PM for 12 AM often enough to call it common, which is why rounds generally end at 11:59 PM. However, I don't see it happen often where someone adds an hour to 11:## PM and doesn't convert the 12:## result to AM, or vice versa. Perhaps the latter is what T-Force is referring to? That seems to be more ingrained in people.

On the topic of the unplanned round extension:
In all fairness, whether or not the participant can correctly interpret a 12-hour clock is entirely on said participant being able to do that correctly. Not to say that anyone disagrees or finds that unfair here, but more importantly waiting until the end of a seven day round to post an initial score is just an unnecessary risk regardless of the exact time the round ends. I can't really find a good excuse for doing that, barring personal emergencies.

I'm kind of on the fence about allowing late scores with a point deduction when the rounds are a week long since punctuality is a big part of competition. I can see it as being more practical with shorter rounds since you don't have as much time to bounce back if something comes up in your life. If you can't post a score within a week's time, it sounds like it's not a good idea to sign up for the tournament to begin with.

I live somewhere where we don't use AM and PM. Instead of 2 PM we use 14:00, as example.
Till now I used the conversion rule: AM means I can read it normally, while PM means I need to add 12 hours.
Apparently that rule does not work for 12:30 AM. It'd make more sense if 00:30 AM was used instead.

Edit: I don't mind about my score not being allowed, not like it'd cause me to get higher on the leaderboard anyway

Yeah, that's what we call military time.

It looks like 1st and 2nd in D5 have been guaranteed! It's a battle for 3rd now between T-Force and feelingzwontfade. Huge props to both of them for placing towards the top while being within the D5 level range. A good amount of participants got into the D6 range before the end.

Also secretly hoping Charmoeleon changes his mind and gives participation credits to the ghosts that submitted for every round.

This was my exact reasoning when I decided to make the rounds a week long with no late scores. Participants have an entire week to post a score, and it's not like they're only allowed to send in one score only. You can update your score as many times as needed, whenever you want. And it's not like the scores are hidden from anyone else, everyone can see them, so it's not even a thing about "getting sniped" because of posting an early score. As you said, waiting until the last minute to submit is an unnecessary self-imposed risk on the participant's side, since the rules are clearly defined from the start.

If you had submitted the score along with this post, I would have accepted it, as the round was not over at that time. I simply posted the new round info slightly early out of necessity on my end. However, seeing as the round has been over for a while now, and following the precedent I've set for myself in the rest of the tournament, I can't accept a Round 5 score now. I apologize for the confusion, and the loss of participation credits.

That probably still won't change, sorry to say. ^^;
But hey, looks like you technically won D5, so good job on that! :P
