[09/18/2005] So it turns out that last week's problems were indeed caused by our mail server. When I logged in today I was hit with about 300 spam letters and a good chunk of reviews. I haven't had time to check them all, so most of them are still pending. Thus, this week will also have only four reviews, but next week will hopefully be back to six.
Contest news is thrown a bit off because of all of the pending reviews, but I'll give it a shot. If all of the reviews I received just now are accepted, Otterland is only one review away from getting the first prize and the newcomer, Aethelred, will have shot right up to third place.
Apologies for the recent chaos our email system has caused. Hopefully things will be back to normal next week.
Until next week...
