Are the end dates inclusive, or does the competition literally end in 15 hours?

(EDIT: I see that you fixed it now.)

The end date is supposed to be exclusive, so ending at 0:00 that day. The remaining time shown on the right should help clarify that.

I had mis-entered the end date when I first scheduled the contest and didn't realize that until two days ago, when another reader had pointed it out. Sorry about the confusion, I didn't see this message until now.

March round (full month) has just started! As a heads up, I'll most likely have to do some infrastructure maintenance this week so the site will be offline for a couple hours when I do so.

Weblio was always recommended to me by Japanese tutors on iTalki; however, the sentences are often very short and probably aren’t what you’re after.
