    i wrestled with skipping this week (first one i'd miss since i began participating last year) since i procrastinate and start shit late and if i'm busy on the final day i'm fucked (which i am), but if we're allowed to submit late i'll be a few hours past deadline

    anyway im snowed at work and its been a full week, and ill prolly not be entering anything till fri/sat so decide w/ shit if ur willing to give me a pass (i'll understand if ur not since thats like 3 days advantage) and if not ill do crits obvs

    don't care for 'advantage' and whatnot since participation and feedback are the important parts of this

    a week won't do anything tbh, people will just wait until the final days regardless (projecting)

    i remember in the old flash fictions they'd just leave it and it would go dead since nobody was actually using the extra time and a week extension turned to a 3 month extension with like 1 entry

    so a combination of a flame under the ass to inspire urgency but also some breathing room to find time for it is best, aka this weekend and we'll go from there

    imo

    i agree, perhaps if it takes until the end of the weekend we make the crit deadline tuesday, and then give a solid week for the next submission date on wednesday (liable to extensions if we so need)

    ideally I'd prefer not to give massive extensions with any kind of regularity, if we're finding that it's too hard to keep up then a general lengthening of the process would be preferable imo i.e. instead of keeping it 1.5 weeks and giving everyone extensions, we just admit defeat and make it 2 weeks :pringles

    that said, ideally we don't need to extend it at all :catghost
