If anyone plans to participate in this challenge, you will need to know the workaround to the Foundry's current sate of dysfunctional nonsense.

Happy 3 month anniversary, long loading screens. On the day that we discover an entirely new thing with costumes that brings loading screens of doom...

The team is investigating -- I'm hoping we'll be able to track this down soon!

It's been even longer, I noticed it on Tribble when LoR went live there and Captain Revo made a bug post that got no response.

I question the wisdom of running an editing contest when editing is in this state.

What he said, but here's to hoping for the best.

As I mentioned, I'm hoping we'll be able to narrow down the slow previewing issue soon. You all know I'm very involved in the contest process and will extend dates as needed. Let's see where we are at in the next couple of weeks. I could have waited a couple weeks, but I'm okay extending the date and at least this will give time to authors to prep their story boards, scripts, mission flow, dialogue, etc.

Cheers,

I'm gonna have to disagree with my author brethren, with the workaround I haven't really been having too hard of a time working in the Foundry...

I'm in. Been wanting to do something with the Tos era mirror setting for awhile now. :P

I do have a few requests though....

Can we get the Tos/Mirror Tos badges working?

Maco,Omega,KHG visuals... please?

I'm not saying it's impossible to make missions, that would be mis-representing the situation. It certainly is possible, after all we've all been in the Foundry building stuff. But the Foundry has not fully recovered from the damage that LoR did. A workaround is not a fix. It's patching the leak yourself with duct tape when you really need the plumber to install a new pipe. And not everyone knows about the workaround, that makes it so authors are not on an even footing. We'd all like this to be a fair contest, right?
