You go girl, it's your party! Sorry I brought up the time zone thing but it was going to come up sooner or later.
The time zone is not really important. No matter what time it is in whatever time zone, EOC is still updating in CDT.

The problem is the actual update itself. The update last ~30-40 minutes. During that time, people get their update points... but not at the same time.

So if there is 2 people, each with 1000 points, one may get their update first and pass the other one.

Actually, 12PM GMT would be better if you could go back to that... because that is 7PM CDT, and there is no update at 7PM. So everyones points will be current when you get the list.

Yeah, 12PM GMT would be fine, because that is 7AM for the EOC update server, so everyones points will be settled from the 6AM update by then.

That was what i originally had 12pm
post #206 of 426
Yeah, I thought you meant like 12 as in midnight. Which made sense to me since it started on 12AM Sunday the 20th, and would end on 12AM.

But then you said 12PM, as in noon. That seems a little early to me, but it is fair to you to have to stay up that late.

12pm is always noon, 12am is midnight ;-)

Yeah, I am so used to people saying midnight as 12PM though I just saw it and assumed midnight.

A little clarification if you could Cog?

I was under the assumption that the contest has not started yet and that it would the top 20 averages (minus those that dropped out of course) for 7 days prior to July 31st. I thought this would give ample time to those people that have only been folding for a short period of time the opportunity to find a way to produce a crapload of points for 37726.

EOC top20 is made up from user averages over the past 7 days.

So whatever figure is showing in the EOC Top 20 Producers - 24hr average column is the average of what you have produced over the last 7 days.
The names in that Top20 list at 12pm GMT July 31st minus the kind folk who opted out will then go into the draw.

There is no perfect competition but I hope its better than none.
