When did the OLC rules change on submission? by Tim Taylor
Just went to post a flight on OLC and I am too late only two days after the flight. When did the rules change from three days to Tuesday at midnight? If you fly on Monday or Tuesday you must submit by midnight on Tuesday or not get scored, Very unreasonable change to the system. TT
