>Submissions temporarily down

>To anyone who has tried to submit since October 30, you’ve probably noticed that you’ve gotten an error message. Our server was having issues on October 31 that took the whole site down, but got it fixed that same day. However, in getting the site back online, something went awry in the permissions on the database that houses submissions. We have a support ticket in with our hosting service, and have put in a payment to upgrade our hosting plan to include SQL Server, rather than just Microsoft Access, so that we can have a more robust submissions system in the future.

Thanks for your patience. We hope to have this fixed ASAMFP.

Edit: The permissions on the folder were set inccorectly when the servers were brought back online. Support has fixed this now and y’all can submit again!!! Thanks for your patience!


About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
