Today, thinking we'd still be able to finish our project in time for tomorrow's deadline, my work group put off doing any work until today. When we logged into the website we have to use, we found it was down for maintenance all day. FML

I'd tell the professor. Even though it was the last day the professor should understand that you guys tried to finish before the deadline. Screenshot the page, contact the teacher, and keep checking the website. And do yourself a favor try not to procrastinate.

As a fellow procrastinator as well as someone who has experienced a similar problem (the website we had to turn it in to crashed 30 minutes prior to the deadline) I feel OP's pain. Hopefully their teacher is lenient and understands the situation, because my teacher just blamed us for doing it last minute and making excuses. FYL OP, but next time you and your group shouldn't procrastinate.

Honestly it depends on how long the teacher gave them to complete said assignment. My teacher gave us 3 months on a paper and had no sympathy for those who waited until the last minute.

Not completely. Fuck OP's life too if it was a small project which could be finished off in a day. Get a screenshot of the website being down and see if you can get some extra time to finish off the work.

Never wait until the last moment. That said, it would be reasonable to try to get a 24-hour extension. Good luck and hopefully, lesson learned ?

Internet in Afghanistan??? that should have been you're clue to do the work in time. Not your best move I hope.
