Admin shouldn't have to ask you to send photos along with the copy. For ignoring SOP, you've been moved to the end of the line, behind my feature.

Pictures are not a strong point of the features. He'll use 2 or 3 of the 50+ I published in my TR's from Zermatt.

And... I've got at least a dozen or even double that that would help the story, but not sure how many days/pages it'll run so I asked for how many to send in (vs chewing up my and his bandwidth). But then I'm my own worst editor with pics as I am very visual and he could probably find a way to highlight the story with half of my desired pics. For this year's I never posted a TR on it so it'll be all new content.

I just noticed. Nice summary of the major ski developments over the summer.

Hopefully our new features will be published before too long.

This week. I've spent much of today cleaning my email account out of over 9,000 emails received since the end of March. Every thousand or so that I delete or move, Gmail temporarily deactivates my account for "unusual account activity" for a half hour or so, so the going's been slow. But now that's done.

Now that my email is properly organized it'll be easy to start preparing articles for publication this week. And the best news is that FTO's backend database appears to be functioning as it should! <fingers crossed>

Yeah! Especially Crocker's twice weekly voice mails and emails. :roll:
You'd think that he could've used all of that spare time moderating all of the new user (read: spam) forum posts that I hadn't addressed. Remind me again why he's listed as a moderator?

Good to see the site back cranking.
I thought David C's early Colorado article was excellent!
