Extension Policy

Extensions are granted at the sole discretion of the Copilot and/or the Topcoder Staff.


Requests for extensions must be in the forums and made 36 hours before the end of the submission phase.  The extension will be confirmed no later than 24 hours before the end of the challenge.  Members will have a chance to lobby against the extension request once the request has been made.



This section is just a note to architects who are running challenges. Just FYI:

Note to Topcoder Staff - we must be fair when extending, need to gain the trust of members

    • Relevant/critical materials were provided late after the Submission started.


    • Significant change in the requirements after the Submission started.
