Proposed Tournament Rule Change
Message ID:
Veteran golfers have a gentleman's agreement to "submit early,
submit often" because a tournament where everyone submits in
the last hour is rather dull.

Perl Golf newbies, however, are unaware of this agreement, as
evidenced by a number of new "super-beginners" submitting their
first entry in the last hours of the game.

I would like to open for discussion a rule change: the cut-off time
for your first entry is 24 hours before the game ends; new entries
will not be accepted in the final 24 hours. I think this rule
change will make the last day more exciting. Opinions welcome.
