    I couldn't figure out whether it had to be an Olympic themed caption, so I erred on the side of caution and sent one that was. So hard to think of something Wildstar+Olympicy, though! :)

    I read this as "As long as it's in before 11:59 P.M. EST" and seeing as there's still roughly 5 hours left until the end of today (17th) would think it counts?

    I accidentally hit send before putting in my zip code (I'm a moron). Should I send a correction email?

    This is correct folks - the deadline was the midnight just gone (click on the timezone link and it'll verify that "Event has passed").

    Sorry, but Sunday was the last day. Judging is underway, winning entries will be out in a day or two.

    Dangit, I got the time mixed up as well, I hope there's another opportunity next weekend, week, or whatever, and the time is set up right.

    IKR, same here. I never ran into a deadline issue thread on a forum before... Just hope that there's another opportunity like this one, again. :cry:

    Ya, Midnight can be misconstrued as 11:59.59 P.M. the night OF or 12:00.01 A.M. the morning of...

    It's almost kinder to not have your hopes raised like the rest of us, only to inevitably have them dashed against the rocks.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but the fine print says the deadline is midnight February 16th...

    I thought long and hard and just submitted. Hopefully they realize the ambiguity of the rules and will let those of us who entered late be considered.

    I'd personally hate to see this sites fan base migrate to one of the others listed on wildstar-online.com over some silly, poorly-written deadline! People get upset easily, ya know?

    Love, Lawliette

    its really not poorly worded. 12am is always the beginning of a new day. Just like 12 Noon is when PM starts. Midnight is when AM starts.
