Willful omission or something else?I have a query for the editors. It is a simple question, based on something that I consider laxity. However, I may be wrong, and a suitable explanation will help clear the doubts that arise in my head.
This is regarding the Triathlon contest and its rules.
In the first leg two entries faced disqualification because the captions exceeded the word count. Fair enough; rules are rules.
The second leg had rules too – 'Closing time to submit your entry: 11a.m. 11th February 2019 (IST)'. This rule was ignored.
Was a special concession made or was it something else?
