Hello @uchibeke ...So I'm a solo entrant in the hackathon and I applied on the first day. However, I thought the application stage would close on that day and even though my project idea had not been fully formed yet, I filled the compulsory application fields with filler text and submitted, hoping I could always come back to edit as long as I was already signed up into the portal.

But now that I have a project idea and implementation, I can't seem to find where to edit my initial application. Is there a way to do this? Or should I simply create another account and ignore the first one?

Hello @uchibeke my team(Team Vibes) will like to apply for the Hackathon.
We got the application date mixed up and didn't realize that applications closed when we tried to register yesterday.
We do have every other thing set up, our repo, figma board and every member of the team has filled the registration form and we have started building our project.
I hope we stand a chance at late registration.
The project means a lot to us and We'd really appreciate if you could kindly look into it.
Thank you for the anticipated positive response.

Warm regards
Morenike
