I didn't want to have to do this, but I've now received something over 600 submissions, which is more than double what I expected. It's insane. Twenty more appear every time I open Gmail. And it's now preventing me from getting on with the business of opening the site. So I'm declaring a temporary but open-ended closure on submissions. I'll open submissions again in a few months, probably, but I'm in danger right now of losing crucial work time to sorting through submissions, and, with half a dozen comics projects and two tv projects of my own, I can't afford to do that.
I'm aware there are a couple of hundred people still waiting for responses from me — I'll get to you eventually, I swear. In at least ten cases, it's your own fault for sending me 15-meg zipfiles. But now I need to get on with the process of assembling the site and proceeding towards launch. Which is the point, after all.
