Your question has a reason. I left the thread open for 10 days to get old. When the thread got old, I was not with my desktop but with my mobile phone. I informed this fact through a thread on 12th May when I was reminded by one member on 11th May. I declared my result as announced on 14th May (Before 15th May) without fail. Sun is alone to conduct a contest, while ISC is not. It has a vast number of editors under the ISC command.
I evaluate the answers as and when I receive it. It hardly takes few seconds to compare the answers with my answers. I don't delay it and don't wait to check it on the final day. It just took few minutes to type my quiz result. In any case, It should not take more than an hour to evaluate the answers, especially the quiz answers which has a definite and firm answer. Vandana's response is not convincing. There need be no confusion or discussion to announce the straight forward result. If the author is away on long leave, it should be informed or alternate arrangement should be made to evaluate and announce the result. ISC should not keep its members waiting for the result.
ISC should ensure to announce the date of announcement of contest result too. It should be indicated in the contest announcement thread as below:
Last date/closing date: 9th May 2017 (2359 hrs)
Result declaration date: 16th May 2017 (1200 hrs)
No life without Sun
