The link is not bringing up the submission form for me. Am I the only one having this problem?
All I'm getting is the same banner from last night. Am I doing something wrong?
Hmm I can't seem to figure this out -- there's no where to enter through that link. Anyone else having trouble, or am I being dense?
Please try refreshing the page if you don't see a submit button. If you continue to have issues, jump on msfv.slack.com and request an invite. We can chat there and get you sorted.
Hi. I completed the submission page and paid but after the payment went through it didn't take me back to finalize my submission. How do I know if my submission has gone through?
Your submission was completed before you made the payment. If you have paid you're done.
Wonderful! :) Thank you.
Tried refreshing and still no luck, and the slack link is not working. Suggestions?
I'm dying here. I joined slackbot and all it will do is give me a tutorial and ask for my picture. Do I need to join a group to talk to msfv.slack.com?
Try going here and entering msfv.slack.com: https://slack.com/signinOr just type the URL in directly. It will ask you to request an invite.
Suggestion for everyone -- if you're using Firefox, try switching to Safari. That worked for me. :-)
THANKS!! I second all of these. Firefox wouldn't let me in, but I'm able to get in with Safari!
Thank you! Chrome worked for me. It seems to be a Firefox glitch.
Hi, I'm in the same boat too.
Sorry! I'm in. Problem solved :)
If you have a different browser, try that. I could not get through on FireFox but was able to post using Safari.
If you're having issues with a specific browser, please log into slack and we'll troubleshoot. If we can narrow the source of the issue, you'll help others in the future.Try turning off any adblock or ghostery software if you have issues.
It's Firefox. Use another browser, people! Google Chrome got me in, no sweat (ok, just a little).
You get the prize for "most tenacious". :)
Please join me in slack if you have the time and let's troubleshoot. We can fix it up for others.
I was seriously just going to come on here and yell, "WHY ISN'T ANYBODY USING CHROME??" :)
Peeps having trouble: the form doesn't work in Firefox (not on mine), and I didn't try Chrome, but it's fine on Internet Explorer!
For those of you having issues in Firefox, use this direct link to enter: https://msfv.firebaseapp.com/#/enter/-JypFbrv-QdjjcMWS8Rx
Sorry, everyone!! Thanks for your patience. It's actually good that this happened (and that you all came and said something), because now Michael is able to fix it. :)
Firefox error has been fixed. You may need to clear your browser cache to see the updates. Thanks for the help finding this bug.
Once your payment goes through, you're in. There is no further confirmation! :)
Thanks! I realized after posting that I should have just read the comments. :)
Not sure if my submission went through. I sent the payment, but am I supposed to get some sort of confirmation?
Once your payment goes through, you're in -- no further confirmation!
Just to let people know, Firefox worked perfectly for me on the first try. Thanks, Michael, for fixing the problem.
Yay! Thanks so much for letting us know. :)
Quick question: Can a screen name be anything, or is it your author name?
It can be anything -- whatever you like to use when you leave comments here. It's for identification purposes only.
Quick question -- my e-mail that I used to put my submission in is different from my work e-mail that I use for PayPal. Is that still okay? Or will that mess up the submission? Thanks, Authoress! :-)
It will be fine. PayPal notifies the servers directly and it doesn't depend on your email address to identify the payment. It is important that you pay with your real PayPal account, though. Using your neighbors is not allowed. : )
Haha thanks, Michael! Appreciate it. :-)
I hate to be a booger but I didn't get a a confirmation and I don't know if my submission went through. My screen name is Rick.
The payment went through but I don't know if you received my submission with it.
If you were given a button to pay, the submission was completed.
