Update to the Update: two days ago I was able to log on just long enough to write the message below when the site crashed for more than another full day, which rendered the challenge 'extension' fairly meaningless. Furthermore, I have it on good information that at least one authour attempted to submit a story but was thwarted in doing so.
So, although I'll leave the old message in its original form below, Hannah, Sir Ollivander and I were quite unanimous on wanting more than just a 24 hour extension, so perhaps we should set the new deadline as midnight, March, 20.
And now, let's all dip into out stores of Felix Felicis and hope for a bit of server stability!
[The problem with SIYE crashing is at our host server site. I personally have not learned what the problem(s) is/are but we are definitely in contact to find out why and when SIYE will be stable. -Sir Ollivander]
Friends, seeing as how many times the site has been down in the past few days, I think it's only fair that we extend the submission deadline by a day in case there were any other authors attempting to submit stories. So let's say that we will accept any stories submitted before midnight SIYE time on March 16th.
Shortly thereafter, the category will close, and stories will be open for People's Choice voting.
Thank you for your patience.
