I wasn't aware there was an issue preventing further updates of the database; I assumed it was just a backlog bottleneck. Do you want me to stop submitting material until there is an opportunity to clear the backlog? I don't want to make the problem any worse.

Submitting material does not cause a problem, the problem arises when entries are updated (*) so you can keep submitting whatever material you wish.

(*) This does not apply to resources - maps, solutions, screenshots, etc. - so this material can still be updated. New entries can also be created but the authoring system will be lost; in this case a separate submission stating the game's authoring system should be uploaded alongside the submission for the new game so that the authoring system can be updated after the problem is fixed.

As far as I'm aware only Jacob has the authority to fix the problem, but I haven't heard from him for a while. I'm not even sure that he knows of the problem
The problem is known, but the solution is not (at least for the moment). We talked about it a few weeks ago.

Thanks, that's a relief. Hope the snag can be fixed soon.

Has it affected the number of solutions being submitted? Personally I have to admit that I've lost all interest in completing and providing maps and solutions since the points table has stopped updating. :( it was the competition amongs those around me on the points table that kept me going.

In fairness, I can say that some of my materials are being processed, although the queue moves very slowly. So at least one person is handling new submissions (and thanks for that). I guess they have a hard one dealing with a substantial queue and little time to spare, but things have not completely stopped.

I've checked, Simon, and the points table is still updating.
