I am trying to create a contest for three days but every time I get the same message, "Validaton errors: {"deadline":"There must be at least five days between deadline and announcement of the awards"}. Be advised I kept trying putting even more than 5 days gap between deadline and announcement of award but still the same message continues. Please help. Thanks

Hello Nadeem, thank you for this information. I just made test contest and selecting 8 days for voting worked and I could make a contest.
BTW, I get an error that there must be at least 7 days between deadline and announcement (as stated on creating contest page).
Please select at least 8 days for voting for now until this is corrected.
I will inform Scott about this issue.

Also, please do let me know if you are unable to create contest even though if ou selected 8 or more days between deqadline and announcing winners.

Hello Nadeem, this is fixed now. By automation minimum date between submit deadline and announcing winners is 7 days. You can, of course, select later date if you like.

Please do let me know if you have any more issues with this.
