      sirtanicmills Bric, the Social Go platform is somewhat shaky at present - whiteouts etc. Lots of stuff going wrong.

      AlanP I just had a couple of tries. I get as far as create and it bombs. I wonder if there's an issue with the depth of the thread in that forum section. Nothing is ever archived off.

      AlanP Indeed. There have been some HTML and psp changes recently and browsers have been updated. Might be connected to that.

      Athelstone Just out of interest, I tried to create a new topic in Critiques just as a test. That failed in exactly the same way.

      Athelstone A good guess. Before I became too lazy to work, 8 out of 10 of our problems with software turned out to be privileges.

    Bric October 2017 Competition Ghost story The second best novel I read this year was Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. All Hallows' Eve approaches: a day to remember the dead. Not just saints and dearly beloved but others as well--the bad, the unquiet--those who couldn't pass peacefully and wait for a chance to return. For revenge, for love, for justice, for closure. Shiver my timbers and scare me witless. And make me care. Up to 400 words excluding title by the witching hour - midnight on 31st October in whatever time zone you find yourself. I'm unable to create a topic for reasons I can't fathom. Will try tomorrow.

      bazbaron Ya see, that's another reason I like the monthly comp, it forces peeps out of their comfort zone. Nice one Bric.

      AlanP The cloud is having one of its wobbles, I think. Still you've put it out there. I hope for stability enough to have a go, personally and cloudy.
