Nothing's wrong, we're just swamped. Also, check your PMs to see if there was a problem with your subsisions...

5 days isn't much. There used to be a point where I could approve weaves the same day they were submitted or at most the next day. Because of the size of the library, it's much harder now for me to make sure a weave is unique.

Perhaps if we made a prelim viewing area for the whole board to view submissions before they were approved? That way if someone recognized it as a weave, or as a variant of one, that would make your job easier.

Sort of a nonofficial to official.....

You could even lock the threads (if there was one) once the final decision was made, to limit endless argument.....

Can't do it. An admin has to scan all submissions to ensure the site stays family-friendly...

Could you take the previous idea and just make a que so that an admin just has to make sure it's family safe then just put it up for all to see/judge as suggested in previous post?

Seems like a quick look and an admin would immediatly know if it's profane or not rather than checking for profanity as well as all the weaves varifying its oringinality. Not that I'm trying to pry into yall's buisness, the idea just popped into my head so I figured I'd suggest it. Smile


I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it.

That does seem like a good idea, preliminary viewing.

Is Deirdre back from her move yet, because there seems to be a backlog on gallery submits.

Oh, and by the way, if any one has to contact me, I'm experiencing email troubles, so please PM me.

I am fully moved in and getting ready for Bumbershoot. I have a regular internet connection now though and was actualy just getting on to say that I am going to spend a couple of hours later this evening clearing out the queue.

Things are finally getting a little calmer around the house, so I will be back to full speed with my admin duties very soon.

Just an FYI, I will be gone Thursday - Sunday at my sisters wedding in Montanna, then gone again September 1st - 5th in Seattle vending at Bumbershoot. Other than that I'm good to go.

How's it going for article submissions? I put one for HP 3/1 in about 2-3 weeks ago. I think I did everything for it correctly, and don't remember getting any PMs or emails, but I could have messed up when submitting it. (Never submitted an article before, you see.)


I'll rise, but I won't shine.
