Well, if my opinion counts, I'd rather let them run for a month (thus ending the Oct 14th. That way nobody is hurt, I believe, it's just a matter of how fast they can gather 1) the database

They have the lists with some coordinates. Done.
2) the website

It may be a bit late to register a domain, so, create a page in sk Wikipedia or Commons for the contest?
3) the juri

and, eventually, 4) the prizes.

Request for a grant?

I just learned about Israeli exception, so I really don't see the issue why shouldn't SK do the same... wasn't Russia 2011 raised with similar delay, last year?

if you're able to have everything in order before that moment I could
possibly live with it. However, you should have all business in order
before then (this is not to be underestimated at such short notice),
including prizes (no prizes is an option too, although highly
unfortunate) and jury.

However, I would be quite against having the finishing date of Israel.
Israel is here a strong exception because the hebrew calendar system is
different than ours, and newyear starts at Sept 14. This does leave them
with an extremely short time to run jury results. Having Slovakia with a
shifted timeline too, would be highly unfortunate. Also, this would mean
you would have to disqualify all images uploaded so far (you mentioned
100 accidental uploads?). So *if* you're able to join, I strongly prefer
you would still end at September 30. I know this doesn't sound nicely,
but otherwise things become very confusing.

    Dear colleagues,

    First of all, thank you for the feedback.
    Joining in with Israel in terms of the timeline seems like a do-able
    option if we pushed the starting date further a bit. <- What would be
    the hard limits on that?
    The infrastructre is getting built as we speak (thank you for the help!)
    Our thinking is that it is better to take this oportunity and not to
    wait until 2013.
    WLM and the Wiki family is, after all, a project of hope,

    Thank you for your support,
