As many of you know, the MS Creel Project reporting page and form was not cooperating for a period of time. Once that was corrected, it turns out that there was a secondary issue with the back-end related to mail. We send the submissions to a mailbox, but that mailbox wasn't getting submissions.  Long sad technical story....

It looks like we are getting everything now, but we are missing quite a bit of data from prior submissions. We're not quite sure how to deal with that; we're still working on a plan so we'll let you know.
