Great questions--that means you’ll have the full day of the 27th, and the contest will close at 11:59 PM (PST) on the 27th! So that day is still open for pre-orders. Let me know if you have any further questions!

Thanks for letting us know it’s the 27th! Just for extra clarification, when it "ends on" June 27th, does that mean the contest will close right after 11:59pm on June 26th, or 11:59pm on the 27th? Basically, is the actual day of the 27th still available to take pre-orders? Thanks!

Everyone, our sincere apologies for the confusion here. It appears there is some kind of bug in the system that keeps changing the date as it was just June 24th. This is incorrect. The absolute end date is June 27th, as was originally written in the letter/FAQ. Again, our sincere apologies for the confusion! We are looking into the bug and will make sure the contest truly ends on June 27th. Thanks so much.

@Daniel Lee That was an error, it is fixed now. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and have a great day.

Hi Elena, if the contest ends on June 25, why do the rules say this:

"We’re looking for the top three science fiction books on Inkshares in terms of unique reader pre-order counts for pre-orders placed between May 16, 2017, and June 27, 2017."

Further down on the same page, it says this:

"The contest officially begins on May 16, 2017, and only projects that begin selling pre-orders on or after that date are eligible for the contest. The contest closes on July 25th, 2017."

So which is it? June 27, July 25, or June 25?

Just curious on the actual ending time for the Nerdist Contest. One place on the contest page says the 25th and another says the 27th. And since the 25th is a Sunday and the offices will be closed...? @Elena Stofle ?
