It has been brought to my attention privately by an entrant that an extension might be be a prudent idea. Seeing as how this is the only instance of anyone mentioning it that I know of, and the fact that I think everyone here was very happy with the terms discussed at the outset, I thought I'd pose the question publicly for anyone who feels this issue is relevant; does anyone else want an extension but is afraid to speak up?
I almost kinda second this. At least for me, school and an entire busy week at the beginning of the contest has swiss-cheesed my time available for mapping quite a lot. I'm not saying do it for sure, since I might be able to progress beyond my own expectations by the end of the contest, but I'll state that it does sound like a perky idea for some of us with part-time crap going on (and parental bossiness to contend with). As for the Summer, I'll kinda have a lot more time, though stretching this contest out to ridiculous time extensions would be silly (so not for this one in particular). Good thought either way.
