What happened to the 'speed' in Speed Contest? Answered

Now, I know that these contests are shorter than ones like the Laser Cutter contest, and the Science Fair, but nearly 19 days long? I thought that speed contests used to be a week, no more. Is there a reason why they are extended now? Thanks, Bran E.

I dunno. Some of the really short "speed contests" had some rather questionable entries; quality over quantity, you know...

Normally, even speed contests need time to gather materials, equipment and inspiration.

I'm guessing it's a concession to those strange folk who only check the site once every week or two...

Actually, the latest contest (sorry, my British sense of humour won't let me type it without chuckling rudely) could have been a genuine speed contest.

Then you could have tossed a quick one off...
laughs uncontrollably, ends up having to bang head on keyboard so that pain brings brings back maturity.

Ah, well, I guess you're right. The materials and equipment thing didn't cross my mind, seeing as how the current contest is about paper airplanes.

Aww, and I just reported I couldn't post here *sigh* I tried 5 times. The 6th time worked, after reporting it as a bug *shakes head* figures.
