Problems submitting story

I tried to put in a tale called 'The Collaborator' (which was inspired by something Denise Felt wrote some years ago). I used the Guild submission form.. but my computer choked on it! I tried emailing the webmaster about the problem and my email bounced  Sad  I've PM'd the librarian, but she seems to be busy. It's a bit long at 22k words to post to the board, even in segments. I'll hang on for a bit, maybe try resubmitting on a different machine (I've got a choice of four, all running different OSs.  Shocked Shocked   )
which was inspired by something Denise Felt wrote some years ago).

We had a Server upgrade here a week ago and we're still sorting out some of the issues - one of them was the submission form.
Please try again.

BTW - I DID respond back to your direct email.

Ah - I've been checking in from time to time as I don't have 'notify' on, and it's been saying 'no new messages'. Now it does indeed say there's a new message, so thanks, I'll have a look!

Direct email didn't appear either - I'll check my settings.

I'll try again to submit my little tale tomorrow. Because of the time difference here in the UK, my dinner is nearly ready.. Smiley

I think i know why I was having problems submitting..

The form asks for a copyright date. I gave it in the UK format day/month/year.. should have used the US format month/day/year!!

No wonder it choked, there isn't a 14th month.. so I changed the copyright date to 1st and put it in correctly.

Oops..
