I just checked a comment, which I remembered seeing... ten days ago they said this week... so I'm assuming pretty soon. hopefully it'll be this weekend or so... there were so many awesome pumpkins, probably slowing down the process a little

Me again, per your advice I contacted the help desk and just received a response. The following is the link to the ticket: [link]
Please refer to the final response to the ticket. In case the link does not work, I will post the body of the response here:

Hello,

Your deviation was actually submitted on 2012-11-05 at 17:34:50 Pacific Standard Time. Coincidentally I had my timezone set wrong on my account due to traveling so it showed as Nov. 6 for me yesterday. I'm sorry for that.

Kind regards,

Oliver

The Journal says the deadline was the 5th of November. I just got a note saying it was moved because the contest ended on the 31st? What's the deal here guys? Mine was submitted on the 5th.

I am having the exact same problem, and I know I submitted it in time because I linked it here in the comments as soon as I resubmitted it (after the last relocation). Here is the link: [link] This is getting a little redundant...

The "Submitted" time on my picture says it was submitted 6 days and 6 hrs ago, and the current time is 3 AM EST on November 12th. That means that it was submitted at 9 PM EST on November 5th. [link] Please double-check the times. There is a bug or mistakes somewhere.

I even looked up the source code for the page and here is what it says for the submission time:

If you hover over the time/date as well, next to the comment on your work, it even says the 6th there too. I'm sorry, but your entry was not in on time. That's what the stats say.

That is really strange, because this is what it shows for me:

Submitted: November 5
Image Size: 27.1 MB
Resolution: 106764735

Also, the time when I linked it to this page (in the comments above) shows "November 5, 2012, 8:37:59 PM". I'm in the EST zone, and the contest rules above does not actually specify time zone on the deadline time. Sorry to be so insistent, but I put a lot of work into my entry, and if I take part in future contests, I would like to know if there's a problem with the submission times that I'm not aware of. I'm really not sure how else to prove that it was November 5th, since everything I see says the 5th. Even the comments under my picture have a posting time on November 5th, EST. Is there anything I can do to prove it?

Ugh, I'm sorry to see that others are running into the same problem. For the record, yours shows up as November 5th for me too.

No, it is not dated as November 6th. If you look on the page where the picture is, under "Submitted", it says "November 5th". If it says November 6th anywhere else I know it is mis-dated, because I definitely submitted it on November 5th. Furthermore, if you look at the date where I linked it into the comments, it was on November 5th.

Sorry but it says November 6th. I've checked that, and others see the same thing as me. Under submitted it says November 6th.

Are you sure? It no longer has the contest header in the comments and is showing up under Photography / Other for me.

Ok. Must be a time zone thing then since I'm in PST and I uploaded it that evening. It still shows up as uploaded on the 5th for me. But if I missed the deadline then I missed the deadline. Thank you very much for all the help in sorting this out.

No worries - it should say the same date for you as it does for me. In the metadata at the side, it says submitted on 6th November. THe contest runs in PST.
