Our host is still working to resolve their issues. MPTT archive is back on, but please expect intermittent access and slowness until services are fully restored by our host. It can happen that you won't be able to reach the site, but please try again later. They assured us that no data was lost, but the problems appear to be at hardware level like routers and switches at their data center.
Due to the host's problems, e-mails sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com might bounce back or will be delivered to the inbox with a huge delay. We're very sorry about the inconvenience that might cause, but sadly enough that is beyond our control.
If you wish to contact any of our mods privately, you can find the e-mail addresses on the front page of our yahoogroup: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LOTR_Community_GFIC/
As for the Tree and Flower awards: we've extended the posting deadline with two days. In order to have a story to compete, they must be posted to the archive by the 5th of August 2013. We've also extended the nomination date 'till August the 12th 2013.
Two authors have contacted us about posting their stories to the archive in a timely manner. We will help them with achieving this, but if you read this and run into problems because the site is down for you for a longer period: do let us know. We are happy to help you (also with other matters that might arise).
I think that is it for now.
