    Quite Quiet can you please address the following questions:

    1) Will there be some 'global' announcement once the deadline has arrived? If not, why not?
    2) Was a smaller subset of the 24hr range considered? if it was, why wasnt it used instead? There are so many reasons why having an entire 24hrs open to a deadline is dumb but im not going to get into that rn

    those are the only questions i have for now. thanks

    1) As there's no real reason to wait, as soon as the deadline as passed the results will be posted in the thread pretty much as soon as possible. That would be the announcement, but there's no other type planned.
    2) There were, and I've had several compelling arguments with players over the past week about lowering it to 12 hours or even lower. I understand this is a bit of a departure from how OLT has worked the past few times, so I'm more than willing to be flexible and modify how broad this time range is. The range may be lowered to 12 hours for the next cycle. If anyone else has more to add to this, feel free to contact me about it.

    Apologies for this being far more stressful than I originally anticipated.
