Anyone tried to post to the SSA lately? It won't let me upload a story.|

You're posting a new story? I must go read (once it lets you upload---hope that gets sorted out)!
Thanks! You've read this one already - I'm just slow archiving it.
Did you upload it in text form? The SSA is super picky about that. Are you getting an error message, or is the site simply not letting you in?
I uploaded it in plain text, as always...it's sending me the template email but not archiving the story.
How odd! Do you want me to see if I can access it? It might help to know if others can see it.
Sure! It's titled "The Olive Branch." Thanks.
Search turned up nada. I'd try once more and then email the webmaster. It might be something on their end.
I wish I could have been of more help on this. Let me know if I can do anything else for you. :)
Thanks for trying! I had to re-install Windows after a virus so I'm wondering if there's something missing from my formatting? Will try again tomorrow!
It's really embarrassing how long it took me to realize you were referring to the Smallville Slash Archive when I read the title of your entry in my LJ notice.
I know you don't even watch Criminal Minds, but my mind went straight to Supervisory Special Agent and I panicked a little because of the SSA down, ROTFL! XD
I fail at life, sorry.
HA! I should have put the full name there. Confusing!
I'm embarrassed to admit I've forgotten to set the 'Archive this story' to Yes more than once. Maybe that?
If you're still having problems today, let me know - I have a story I can try to archive.
I clicked Archive but I'm wondering if it's a formatting issue, since I re-installed Windows. If your story doesn't upload, could you let me know?
Mine failed too - I don't think it's a format issue. I just sent an email to the archivist. Fingers crossed it's nothing serious.
Yikes! I hate the idea of no SSA :(
Did anyone get this figured out yet? I tracked a link
a few months back, with someone that had the same problem and never got ahold of the webmaster, either :(
I pretty much hate this in all ways and it needs to be fixed. There should be some kind of internet intervention, where the fandom gets to take back an archive once it's been abandoned!
I should try again...I think the archivist is more of an SPN fan now.
