(LoL, bots with axes)

I like:
* the idea of clarifying rules
* the idea of having a "hurry up" template
* very much like the idea of adding a template instead of removing
one. We did that for the monuments which where not in our list.

About people which started uploading an image before the end of the
contest but finishing after midnight, if there is a simple (and only
if it simple enough!) way to understand if this is the case for a
given picture I think we should allow them. I say this because AFAIK
the standard, at least in Italy, in contests where some transfer of
documents is involved (through postal service) the deadline is placed
on the sending date (and precisely, the postmark "certifies" the date
of sending).
