    I read that it closed on September 10th, figured I'd have time. Turns out it closed at midnight (Eastern), or three hours ago. Le Sigh. I wonder if anyone else is in my boat of procrastinating because I only wanted a few of them.

    Hopefully it will be sorted out in the morning. God knows the club loves sending us emails. Best of luck to you.

    That's part of the reason why I only skim their E-Mails. I know I'll be spammed with more copies.

    Technically, midnight is 12 am of the date in question. So they closed at the correct time; midnight on the 10th is the first possible moment of that day.

    But I feel for you. "Midnight" is a terrible time to use for any event since there's so much confusion about what it means. They should have used more exact wording or -- and this would have been better -- "noon" on the 10th. There's never any confusion around what noon means.

    I just got an e-mail from the club saying this ends today. I guess everyone is confused by midnight.

    Looks like you have another 16 hours or so to order.

    I can’t fault them. They sent like fifteen E-Mails regarding it, the same information in virtually each one. I believe they sent out a solitary correction E-Mail at one point. But midnight was a poor choice, one that seems to have even confused them. I was able to get my order in after they re-opened it. But honestly, when someone says I have until sometime on a date, my assumption is that I actually have some time on that date.

    Eh, none of the figures were that amazing anyway. I was going to sign up but then realized I really don't care.
