I did a double take, thinking the conjecture was solved! I think all us yes traders were thinking this wouldn't resolve until it was solved one way or the other. Can this be reopened?

Do you mean by the time the market closes, or in general?

@WilliamHoward I meant in general, it's my first market and I didn't mean to add a time limit, how should I resolve it now?

@fejfo I’d suggest either NA because it’s still unknown whether the the conjecture will be solved by an amateur. Or NO because it was not in fact solved by the time the market closed.
