    Just to pass the message on and as a general reminder - if you're a trial member or otherwise cannot submit due to not being a full member, please contact one of the judges and we should be able to grant an exception to you. We've given exception to a handful of people already, so please don't hesitate to contact us.

    As people have been confused with deadlines, we are making Sunday the LAST day before the deadline expires. In other words, you can still enter to the contest on the Sunday and not worry about not being able to submit.

    The cutoff has to be manually done and will be done whenever Cinossu wakes up Monday in the BST time zone so get your stuff in this Sunday and remember the additional week for updates.

    A reminder that TODAY is the last day that submissions to the contest will be allowed. After this, no new submissions will be permitted but existing entries can be updated until the end of next Sunday.

    Remember, if you are having issues uploading your entry, attach an external link that will lead to the actual download for now.

    If you are unable to add an external link, put it in your entry's comment section and we will manually upload the entry (size permitted) to our server at the end of the updates deadline.

    Alright, we're in the final hours. From this post, you've got around six hours, as it seems I'm the one pulling the plug this year. When it's midnight my time (UTC-5), I'm flipping the switch, so get to it if you haven't and still plan to.

    TIME'S UP!

    No more new entries can be submitted to the contest. If you didn't enter yet, too late, come back next year.

    For those that did, remember that you have the additional week of updates you can make up to the end of Sunday 16th October.

    Hey everyone!

    The contest is going great so far, but just a quick head's up! We've come across a couple broken links for hacks that have been submitted. Needless to say, but if they are broken by the time the week grace period is up, your hack will be removed from the contest!!

    Just go in there real quick and make sure that your links are working alright. A majority of you all are okay, but we can't be arsed to send everyone PMs right now. We need to be judging instead.

    Thanks for your attention and good luck!!

    More details about the Contest Week will be made available very soon, we have been working on getting the streams lined up and also sorting out issues with the website.

    Our judges have been working through this year's entries for the last few weeks and our Media Panel have been preparing their stuff for the Contest Week too. As the Contest Week quickly approaches, here are a few things to note:

    • On Saturday, we will open our official Discord Server to the public. Aside from the forum threads, this will be the only place to chat about this year's contest, there is no IRC Channel this year.
    • Also on Saturday we should be able to reveal our streaming lineup for this year. Just like previous years, there will be various streams taking place during the day and night.
    • I am intending on doing a stream this Sunday which showcases hacks that have been entered in previous years. It will take place from 7pm GMT / 2pm EST.
    • There will be a Mini Contest during the Contest Week, for anyone considering working on something during the week. Find out what it entails this Monday.

    Oh and for all the social media nutjobs out there, we have a Facebook and Twitter for you to get involved with. Don't ask us why it took this long for these pages to surface.

    This is my first SHC, so sorry if this is a noobish question, but when I try to log in with my Retro account, it keeps saying I'm not logged in. Is it because the contest has ended or is this on my part?
