        1. @SIS - Given the dismally low participation, should we make an exception and consider entries of Gyanban and Ice Princezz as well? I think late comers were allowed in the first contest of season 2 as well.

        7. @SIS : Check the date and time settings for this website. I've had the same problem on my blog earlier. Fixed it by adding the +5.30 to GMT.
