You should move the deadline to 11:59 PM instead of 12 AM, because from experience when I organized Omnimaga contests, even experienced programmers and TI community veterans would mix up 12 AM with 12 PM and it was even more confusing for people living in different timezones.
It's 1:00 AM EST. It's a simple lookup online.
Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?

1 AM can also work. And yah I know it can easily be looked up online, but for some reasons you could have somebody make a Code Golf #5 Snake in 10 bytes that still works, yet that person would be unable to get the deadline hour right. Ironically, it's Americans that seems the most confused about the 12 hours AM/PM system too >.<

Rule clarification: We measure by the amount of characters it takes. Link to character counter: http://mothereff.in/byte-counter
But but but more space for assignments and disadvantage to those on restricted charsets. (Also, Haskell extensions like -XUnicodeSyntax) What's wrong with byte count? I can't think of a language that requires Unicode to use a feature.

Not really. You can use ASCII substitutions. In any case, you aren't saving bytes by using multi-byte Unicode characters instead of normal multi-byte character sequences.

Byte, char, same thing when multi-byte-characters are not present in most of the computer lang entries.
