Ruby Im not sure what the problem is. However, feel free to send the essay to my email and I will give you confirmation back. In the meantime, I am sure the IT team is working on it.
By all means. I apologize for the issue; and I realize the deadline is approaching. Please forward me any Power of Community essays that you can't get to post. [EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL].
If you feel more comfortable mailing, use the address listed with the essay info, as long as the postmark is June 1, that's fine. For snail mail, make sure to include your phone number, for email, I will confirm the same day.
All the Best!
