You don't, the deadline is set by the project. It wouldn't be very useful if they could be set by the participants, as then everyone would say, oh 12-10-2035 is good enough...

However, if you don't want to do Astropulse again as you can't make its deadline, then just disable it in your Seti preferences. This FAQ will show how to do that.

Or, as long as you turn it in before the new quorum partner does, you'll still get credit for it. The servers don't automatically invalidate your work simply because its late. They don't even take points off for being late like school teachers used to! :)

Well, they do take credits off (all of them) if you report after your replacement.

I was just about finished with one of those AP wu, well 80%, and the lights blinked. Now I'm back to less than 1% and it is due June 10. There aren't 548 hours between now and then. (_:(|)
