Jonny it was closed because last month people complained that their photos were only "available for viewing" for a few hours before we changed to a new month. As if it was our fault they forget the month is ending. Now you guys complain that the month isn't "officially" over and want to keep May for a few hours more.
I've explained why previous months get closed before. We had to close them because even after the new month starts some of you would still continue to post photos to the old month. I have no idea why you guys want to do that but some of you would. So we decided to close the threads once a new month begins. The flickr group doesn't get close for each month so you can always post there at anytime.
And this thread is already a sticky.
isn't it still May?
The world isn't in the same timezone as you. So NO in some places it isn't May anymore, DUH. Read my explanation in the second post above!
