Yes, we are aware of the login issues affecting the application right now. We hope to have it fixed right away. We will post another message when it is up and running.
Thanks for your patience!
(Early submitters FTW!)
As far as the deadline is concerned, we will not leave you out in the cold for technical problems outside of your control. When we know how long the application is down, we will find a fair, reasonable solution. We will leave the application open for extra time to cover at least the time that it is down. Updates will be posted here.
