Hi @shankar_pandala, I checked your submissions,
Make sure your Datetime format is 26-09-2014 00:00 and not 26-09-14 00:00.

Do let me know if this helps


Thank you so much @pulkitpahwa. This solved the issue :slight_smile:


First up a great way to celebrate your first three years (congrats!). Secondly, a request to site admins: given the many hackathons scheduled it would be helpful to identify the ones for which the user has registered at a glance. When I login to the DataHack homepage, the list of hackathons all show a ‘Participate’ button next to them, even though I did not register for all of them. I would suggest some sort of indicator that shows whether the user has registered or not and then a button to take them to the corresponding page.


Hi Team, Is it possible to register as a Team?I have registered but now I am not able to do it as as Team.
