Yes, Foundry editing is still down due to some tough gremlins in the republishing system. That's all I know at this time.
There have been auto republishing problems every single season launch since the Foundry was introduced, why do you guys even bother? Its always buggy and slow and brings back a bunch of clickies, grinders, and other stuff that you've removed in the past. Wouldn't it be faster, easier, and help clean out the database to maybe just auto republish the spotlight stuff and have authors manually republish the missions they want live?
