Not sure it would have made much difference to my score, but I started the Feb 3rd puzzle on the correct day. I thought I'd also (just about) finished on the correct day, but I've had the 1.15 multiplier added to my time. I assume this will be sorted out given the information that we can solve until 6.30AM LMI time (thanks Deb)
Right, I will have to do it manually, after the specified time is over. It is not automated.

I.e. the 'late' penalty is applied based on finish time, not start time?
Late Penalty applies on finish time. I think we never defined if it should be based on "start" or "finish". Let me check with Serkan and see if we should make it start time based. We will then have to recompute all days' score - there are 25 such submissions in this years CTC so far.

Also, just for my own curiosity, are you able to check exactly how long after midnight LMI time I actually submitted the puzzle?
At 2016-02-04 12:00:04 AM. So 4 seconds late.
