Game pause delayed the deadline by 6 hours

Yesterday I requested a pause from 1st to 4th november. The game doesn't process the halloween day. I don't know why the deadline has been delayed from 14:00 to 20:00. I don't understand if it is normal.

The game number is 148225.
I think the pause has been accepted by the players still in game because I read a message in the public press dialog.
I don't know if I can check the confirmations somewhere else.

I'm a bit confused. The Pause WAS accepted, and it IS active, which is wht the deadline is now on Nov 5th. Which is what you wanted isn't it?

The day of deadline is correct, but I was expecting it at 14:00 (as usual) instead at 20:00. After the weekends the time of deadline doesn't change. Shouldn't be the same for the pause?
(It is the first time I request a pause)

Ah, I see!

What the pause does is it moves the date beyond the paused period, but it then gives a random time within that day. Seems odd I know, it is jus historic because that is the way the code has always worked. It was originally done to avoid logjams after a weekend delay, and has just never been changed :)
