OK, so on top of the registration problem - do NOT go to your profile, and edit account settings re: changing your e-mail or password. Because if you do, the system asks you to re-authenticate your account. And because the system can't generate e-mails - you can not re-authenticate! I just found thi...

Re: PM Stuck in Outbox?

Molly, It likely means they haven't seen it. When the forum was working, a PM would trigger an e-mail to the person, and they would come and check. Now, it doesn't.

Lately I find myself staring self-publishing in the face. Like, literally. It's right there. During my research, the thing I hear most often is, "Get a mailing list." I understand many of us are just getting started, but with all the winners that visit, I figure there should be a place whe...

Regarding PMs

Seems that the PM machine is a little broken. It's not sending e-mails when a PM is received. If you don't see the little 0 turn into a little 1, then you may miss a message. I believe Martin's eventual update will fix this, but in the meantime, see if you have an unknown PM by checking the # next t...

Emily,
Looking at my post 30 day history for that market, I have a 44 day acceptance, a 49 day rejection, and a 50 day acceptance after having received a similar e-mail.
I've got nothing between 30 and 44 days.
