It was always my intent to extend the deadline for the spring season, but after some thinking, I figured it made no sense to lock out the other 50 weeks of the year and potentially miss out on talented writers. So the “join the team” option is now a persistent navigation item above. With that said, the deadline for the spring season has been extended to Saturday, March 5. Two weeks is much more symmetrical than 8 days. Click the join link to apply.
Also, in other news, I’ve ended the ReplyMe plugin experiment. ReplyMe is a plugin that sends an email to you if someone replies to your comment. You’ve probably noticed it here over the last couple weeks. Although I thought the feature was useful (I forget where I comment all the time), the lack of an opt-out feature bugged me too much, so I’ve shelved it for now.
