The admins have stated in times past that the server does not slam the
gate down, so to speak, at the deadline. Instead, a human being tells
the server to stop accepting submissions, at the deadline, or sometime
after that. In this case, the human being has not gotten around to it.
I suppose that it would be fair if everyone knew this, so that more
people could jump on the wagon, but life in unfair.
