The last several challenges, I've gotten invalid date errors when submitting my entries.

I've just changed the date until I found one that the system liked... even though they were taken during the window.
It still keeps telling me that they were taken outside of the entry window.

This time, I can't find a date that the system likes (for "Shortcut"). Since this is archival, any date should work, but as it happens I took it today... and it still doesn't like the date.

Any ideas?

There is a known glitch which rejects dates when submitting within a few hours of either end of the submission period.

Just enter any date which works (like yesterday?) -- the only date which "counts" is the EXIF of the original. You can (probably) correct the date on the photo's display page after the voting is over ...

Thanks, Gen!

I do remember that glitch... so I tried several days, even though it's not near the beginning or the end of the submission period.

However, July 6th worked... even though that's before the challenge started and my entry was taken today.

Weird.

But, all good now! Thanks!
