Wave 7 already?


Wave 7 opens today and ends on Nov 1st at 23:59PM PST (GMT+7).

Wave 6 was the first wave with slots adjusted to the new quarterly schedule.  Looking at the slot usage, percentage penetration and total number of nominations, Wave 6 landed very close to where we hoped it would.  As such, there will be no slot allocation changes for Wave 7.

Late Nominations

In the days following the end of an Exemplar Wave, I tend to get several requests asking if a judge can submit late nominations.  We haven’t made an “official” post yet on how we handle them. As a matter of policy, we do not accept late nominations.  Waves are approximately 10 weeks in duration, and you do assume some risk in waiting till the last day.  Now, that isn’t to say we don’t make exceptions for large scale software problems, or medical emergencies.  However, the default answer to “Can I submit a nomination late?” is “No, but the next wave opens in 2 weeks.  Be sure to get it in early.”

That’s all for now.  Until next time, stay awesome.
