    Forgive me if this is completely wrong as I’m useless at working this stuff out.

    It’s currently 9pm in the U.K. and UTC is one hour behind so it’s 8pm UTC.

    So if I unlocked achievements this morning at 10:30am it would of been 9:30am UTC so my achievements should of counted in the competition?
    The achievements have timestamps and were scanned in before the cutoff, so they should have counted. I know the countdown on the leaderboard showed the contest ending at 8am UTC. The countdown was fixed, but it might have caused some issues.
    Oh thats sucks about the incorrect end time I made sure to scan as soon as I unlocked them so they would count in the competition.

    This site and community are awesome! I want to thank all the people who write and contribute to all the great walkthrough's here on TA. These on site guides are very useful and helpful. Also all the excellent solutions from the community are a big help. And the comments on the solutions are helpful as well and contain some great tips from the community. If it wasn't for all the awesome and helpful people here in the TA community I would have struggled to complete 1 phrase much less 25 phrases. I hadn't played most of these games in years, some not at all prior. This contest reminded me how much fun many of the games in my backlog/collection are to play. I really enjoyed Hangman and I would not have had as much fun if it wasn't for all of you out there being a part of this awesome site and community. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for improving my gaming experience :)

    Does anyone know when the next challenge will go live? It sounded like the general plan was to set up another back-to-back.

    How did you force recalc the Hangman game? Or you mean you forced the scanner to check for achievements..

    I ended with an I then an O before I went to sleep last night. The O, which I earned last, showed but the "I" didnt even compute as a guess. Not sure what's up with that. My feed looks fine, it just looks like Hangman skipped a guess.
    Yes force scan, the term to check for achievements manually over the daily/pro site update.

    I always try to save a couple scans for the final day of contests. There have been hiccups in the past, or masses trying to force scan prior to timer expiry. It usually occurs for the competitive events not the community challenges as much. In this instance when I manually scanned, the updater said 7 people in queue. It went down to 3 within seconds, and stuck there past (what I thought) the event cutoff.

    My guess when the timer was corrected by the site there was no recheck on the phrases to see what was already scanned. As my gamer page showed the achievements, but the phrase was incomplete. Another force scan this time updated the phrase. Alas, a good idea to keep a few scans for the day of.

    It sucks a little on a personal level to not have what you completed show up. I lined up Defense Grid 2 to unlock the final three letters simultaneously. I really wanted my phrase to show completed.

    Okay, I'm gonna make one last request for a Club 108 update. I forget who normally does them, but I suppose I could do it myself if I need to. I suppose I'm just lazy. lol

    Be nice to see a facty article about the competition like who got the achievement with the highest TA score. A reworked leaderboard based on ta score and gamerscore. Etc
