SIYE Time:4:03 on 25th May 2019

The Carpe Diem Challenge (2017-1) Update 3

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.

Woohoo! Not only has the site been long enough for me to complete a post, but even long enough for me to check messages and comment.

Fingers crossed.

It is very frustrating to try to access the site and not get anywhere. Fingers and toes crossed that it stays.

Was very annoying, the site kept going down for 3+ hours... what happened, do you know?

I thought the new site header had become 504 Bad Gateway

Quick thing, while it's great the site is back up and working, it won't let me leave a review on a story!

Hmm, I've just tried too and that is odd. At least the site is actually working for now!

GHL came out of the woodwork on 2017.03.19 - 07:51PM to say:

True! I'll see if Bear can look into this for us.

Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2017.03.20 - 07:52AM to say:

Will probably still miss deadline due to the site being down all weekend. I've no time now I'm back at work for the week.

GHL came out of the woodwork on 2017.03.20 - 07:56AM to say:

When we settled on March 20, we weren't anticipating losing another ~6 hours while functionality was gradually restored. If we gave you an extra day, do you think you could manage?

Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2017.03.21 - 07:58AM to say:

I don't have time to format on the laptop - time for bed - flat out at work and no time till the weekend. You'll have to carry on without me.
