Out of general curiosity, do the announcements tend to take place about 4 days after the contest ends? I've known some places that take a few weeks, so that's by no means a complaint, I'm just curious.

It depends on what is going on in the world of tech. They are technically reporters, so the HH team has to prioritize. This time, Marco was doingba fundraiser band then recovering though.

I've been seeing a few posts about Disqus being linked, do I have any reason to be concerned about that and how that would affect in my competing if future contests?

Thanks
