Err. Not this week. I'm not ready. I want to edit the next chapter before I sub it (as I've been doing for the last several weeks), but I haven't even started. I'll go next Monday, please, slots permitting.

Well I suppose. (Slots permitting... but I suspect they will be.)

Hey, is there space this week?

It's been fairly quiet around here (not uncommon in November/December) but with our official sub date of Monday at this point I'd request/recommend that you sign up for next week's submissions. A few members have been pointed out that it's difficult to get to subs that are sent late, so this makes things easier for critiquing and means your submission is less likely to get lost in the shuffle. So, shall I sign you up for Dec 9?

Yes please! I actually meant the 9th.

Soooooooooo, I'll put my hand up for a slot on Monday, please. Monday as in Monday, not Monday as in Wednesday (honestly).

I would potentially like a space for Monday as well. I've got one chapter left if the first draft of book 3, and I'm going to push myself to edit the first chapter by Monday. I'm also going to be potentially away from internet next week, so we'll see what happens.

Since I actually managed to submit on Monday for the first time since 1973, could I have a slot next Monday too? I've got seven whole days to edit my chapter!!

Me too, please.

[Edit: ROFL, I subbed so early (i.e. on time) that I'd forgotten I'd already requested a slot for this Monday :lol::lol::lol::rolleyes: ]

Sorry, I won't be subbing this week. I've had a stinking headache for most of today, time I needed to finished editing the latest chapter. Hopefully, I can get it ready for next Monday, if there is a slot going free.

Sorry to hear that, @Robinski!

And to the whole group: I've had a few people contact me this week to say that the subs didn't come through. This time, I suspect it is universal  - we just underwent a server change that is almost certainly the culprit. We're looking into getting it fixed and will do our best to have it up and running as soon as we can.

In the meantime, I've sent out this week's submissions manually (not from my Reading Excuses email, so hopefully no problems there) to everyone whom I believe is currently active. if I missed you, let me know.

Sorry about this, folks - hopefully we'll be back up and running soon.

And, while I'm on, best wishes for the festive season to all at Reading Excuses!!

With @Mandamon, @Robinski and @The Kraken's Daughter for tomorrow we still have two slots left. Any takers?

Our list woes should theoretically be fixed. There was a server switch last week, and somehow during the move, the settings got reset.

Not fully fixed, apparently, I got one of this week's submissions in my promotion. On the plus side, I did get it, so that's good. I've also adjusted my setting so that all emails coming in from the RE email are directed to my main inbox, so I shouldn't have the problem again.

Yes, I think this is what's been happening with our longer-standing issue where certain people aren't getting certain subs; thanks for confirming. I'm not sure that's down to the email list, honestly, since we've had at least one instance of the problem recurring when someone sent their sub directly. I'll try to find instructions for how to redirect those emails on PC and Mac and add them to the FAQ on the guidelines thread.

I think I'd like a spot for next monday. Might as well get in before the drugs wear off and my fatigue returns, or the students come back and infect me.
