Okay, maybe “address” is a bit strong, however I do have a couple of announcements to make.
First, due to a catastrophic server crash, we have lost all of the wonderful Spotlight submissions that we had in the queue, except for the most recent submissions. The website itself wasn’t affected in any way, however. Today we are in recovery mode, and should be back on schedule tomorrow.
The other announcement is that I will soon begin implementing specific periods for accepting submissions. While Ed and I have been truly grateful for all of the tremendous support you have given us, and are very happy to continue providing The Indie Spotlight as a medium to help let the world know about you and your work. But our popularity far exceeded our expectations, and prior to the server crash, we had a very large queue that was continuing to grow by the week. So now that we have this unfortunate opportunity to start over, we will be taking steps to keep the stockpile of submissions under control so that we can best serve you. So submissions are open now until the end of the month of April, and then we will try to have a more definitive submission period schedule set up, which we’ll post on the website.
We sincerely thank you for your continued support.
