Why is it that when you need to submit an edit on time, the server decided to act up and slow down on you! grr...

I believe ur entry of Chinese New Year for the Famous Festivals Competitions is not a valid one as it has been posted well beyond the time limit. The date stamp shows 1st September !!:)

The overlords may permit relaxation, else it should not be in running for the prize

Why is it that the majority of comptition joiners only submit their entries during the last couple of days

Anyway, it says 'TP staff can't win'. Two questions about that:
1. Does that mean only the admins, or also the mods.
2. Why is that? Do mods get a pay check here

I knew this was coming, that's why I posted here to explain the trouble I had when submitting. :)
Plus, the time stamps are based on the GMT (middle), not the last time zone (GMT-11) used by another part of the world.
Anyway, I'll let the overlords to decide on that matter.

Most moderators are not TP staff, and that includes me. :)

No results yet for the Wiki competition festivals?

I think it will be announced in the upcoming newsletter of September.

Last time (and for the first time) the newsletter did ended up in my junkmail. But so far, I haven't seen it, even over there. Maybe it's coming later because there is some more work or big new featured coming up

Ah sorry folks, totally forgot about this. My apologies for the delay. I know you've all been biting your nails nervously for the last 14 days...

The winner of this month's competition is...

Runah!

Thank you to [ur=http://www.random.org/]Random.Org[/url] for helping me pick a winner. Runa's winning entry was her additions to the Khajuraho and Himachal Pradesh articles. Congrats Runa! I'll send you a message about claiming your prize ;)

Now, to clarify about the whole TP staff thing, that only includes paid staff. That's Dmitry, myself, Li and Peter and Sam. Moderators are of course very much able to win!

Cheers,
Eric
