I sent you a PM...the original post said thru the 19th? Did I read that wrong?

Chris,

the turn in date does say the 19th which is today - I think  you should keep it open at least all day in all fairness.  Maybe you should post a time for closing it in future if you are not going to keep it open until midnight of the day posted.

It does say that you have until the 19th for turn in. It also says that the voting will start on the 19th as well. In the previous 8 ICBs we have generally ended the turn in on The morning of the last day. Started the voting That same day.

However I am curious and since I have been called on this. I will make it quite simple. Any posting in the turn in thread made after midnight WILL NOT be considered in the voting process. That sound fair enough?

Other than setting a designated time zone for midnite you have been very fair.

I think having a concrete closing date and time is a great suggestion.
I am also going to suggest having a concrete close to voting, too. Like midnight CST on the last day of voting.
Anyone agree with me?

I completely agree. However we have never been sticklers with any of the rules in this whole thing. I myself dont want to start doing that now. Technically the cooking should have been completed by last Friday and the posting should have occurred over the weekend. This isn't a big deal just means there will be one less day of voting on this ICB. The voting is usually completed by Friday morning and when I announce the winner I generally try to remember to lock the voting thread so that no new votes may be cast after that point in time.

Well I haven’t decided on whom to give my winning vote to yet but I think I have it narrowed down to two? But my Miss (Mrs., Mr.) Congeniality vote has been decided hands down, and let’s just say “Roll Tide”!  ;D
