Submission Portal login issues.

I added the following message on the home page of the submission portal login as looks like some browsers are giving login trouble still. FireFox and Chrome are solid if you have any issues, thus the following message was added:

Trouble shooting:
Use either Firefox or Chrome web browsers.
Your Contest entry user name is different than your online workshop/forum user name. For technical assistance please visit the forum or email jason@authorservicesinc.com.

For sure. I was quite liking Edge for a while, but recently it has shown a bit of a blind spot for things...like, buttons, or -- occasionally -- actually having an internet connection. In a way, though, it's almost reassuring -- I can still trust Microsoft to keep on reinventing the wheel until it looks like a spatula.

DQ: 0 / R: 0 / RWC: 0 / HM: 10 / SHM: 5 / SF: 0 / F: 1
Entered for Q2, Q3, and Q4 of V39
Last result: SHM for Q1.V39
Revised SHM ('Ashwright') at PodCastle

I was a little apprehensive about subbing. I did not want to change my platform just for one function, entering the contest.

I was very happy MSN was accepted without having to use Firefox of Chrome.

I have a question, Jason. When I was in the portal of WotF my sub for Q2 had a different message than the others.

Could you check and see if I was entered in Q2?

@storysinger Happy to hear that MSM still worked and let you submit. A lot has to do with versions, computers, etc, thus usually when there are people with issues I tell them to try Chrome or FireFox.

I have checked your submissions and your Q2 is all good and for sure was in the system. During the judging process the messages might change depending on the current status, but it is for sure in there.

If you don't mind I would appreciate if you could check the current message and shoot me a screen shot. You can PM if you want.

Good luck with your new submission!

Thanks for asking for a screenshot Jason. I had never tried doing that. Hope I got it right.

Submission portal for Q4 is now open! This is cycle 39D (Volume 39, 4th quarter).

For all returning users you will see in your account a new blank submission that is auto created and ready for you to upload your file.

Once it is uploaded do remember to click on the green "Submit" button as I have had a few people last quarter that didn't realize it is a two step process. You have to upload and then once that form is done you have to click the "Submit".

Following this you will get the auto email confirming you are in, so until you see that auto email know that your story is not in our system.

Good luck with your submissions and I am around if anyone has any issues.
