December Closure

Seattle Community Media will be closed from Monday, December 22, 2014 through Sunday, January 4, 2015, opening again on Monday, January 5th, 2015.

No Submitting New Programs Starting Monday, Dec 22nd

Due to the problems created by a producer submitting many, many shows within a very short period of time a couple weeks ago, as mentioned in an earlier news item, we will stop the ability to submit new programs during this December closure to allow the system to 'flush' itself.

We will remove the "Submit" button during this time.  

You will still be able to schedule, upload shows to your FTP and do other functions.  The only thing that stops is your ability to submit programs.  

Why Is This Happening?

The system has not acted the same since this incident.  Since we have not ever ceased submitting since the system became active, we feel allowing the system to recover with no additional material being added may prove very beneficial.

Please don't create more issues for the system by submitting lots and lots of shows.  Please adhere to our request that you only submit one episode an hour. 

NEW SYSTEM: We are in the late stages of development of our new online platform for Seattle Community Media.  This new system will be much faster, more flexible, more intuitive and less 'mistake' prone.  We are hoping to launch it in January.   We'll keep you posted.
