Is there a size limit to the articles as I'm encountering an internal server error when I try to upload?

I’m working now for a while on my project. Currently I’m waiting to receive some major parts of my project (spoiler: 500+ LEDs) and I’m negotiating for an quotation for an for a laser cutting assignment, since those prices are very expensive. This, together with some other things caused some delay for my project.

I'm making a led grid with addressable RGB LEDs, a lot of the code is ready and tested and all the other materials for the frame are available.

I know we still have a few days left, but i'm still going to ask; is it possible to extend the submission deadline for this challenge?

@marc3l I changed my plan, and published another project. I uploaded my article on Wednesday November 28th, but it is still in Review. Hopefully it will be online soon!

Hi @marc3l Thanks so much, we received your submission prior to the closing deadline. I'll PM you as there is an error on one of the videos. Once we fix that, I'll get it published :o)

Thanks @leonie. I fixed the problem with the video, both video's should be visible now (otherwise let me know by PM).
