Standing Orders End Date


Standing Orders End Date

Greetings everyone,

It has been brought to my attention through several sources that the Apprentice Power of "Tell Time" has not yet been learned by all of our Jedi. I would like to make it clear that 12am Friday the 11th is 23 hours and 59 minutes before 11:59pm Friday the 11th. All standing orders were to be completed by the former time, which occurs in less than three hours.

Due to the confusion, I am going to extend the deadline to the later time of 11:59 PM EST, Friday the 11th. I want all of my orders carried out by then.

And do learn your simple apprentice powers, please.
Lord Jac Cotelin

That power so needs to be added to the Compendium.

hahahahahaa I didn't even know there was such a power... :P

/me performs the power of "tell time" on his enemies and then watches them slowly shrivel and fall victim to time dilation.

Now that's power...

  • 12:00 am is the first minute in the day, not the last.
  • Deadlines extended for 24 hours due to confusion
  • New deadline is 11:59 PM EST on Friday

No power, just some people were apparently confused as to when the 1st chapter finished. The power of tell time is probably a nice way of putting that people should learn to tell the time.

That'd be 00.01 though.

Nice way of telling us we're dumb :o)

O.K. what in the name of Darth Maul are we atliking about? What power?


Of course with approximately 99 of the last 100 competitions that specified a "midnight EST" end date having used the "previous day, 11:59 pm" notation, this error may be forgivable this time.

(BTW, this exact confusion is why the military never ever specifies 12 am. They either state 11:59 pm or 12:01 am to avoid any uncertainty about the date. Even trained Imperial marines are obviously prone to be unsure about what date teh exact minute of midnight is :) )

Yeah -- but i didn't specify 5. I specified 12 am

When someone asks for something by a certain date, it usually means by the end of that day, not the beginning. In business, that typically means by 5 PM.
