You may submit using the submission form here, but ONLY during an ‘open’ submission period. If the form is not available and we are in a ‘closed’ submission period, any attempts at sending me your pasta will be unilaterally rejected. Continued attempts to submit during a closed period will result in a ban.
I do things this way because I tend to get thousands of submissions during the “open” period, and the “closed” time allows me to make it through all of those submissions at my own pace, without burning myself out completely.
You can always tell which phase we’re currently in by checking the “Submission Status” box on sidebar; I do my best to keep this updated as I progress through the open/closed submission cycle. If there is no ETA listed for when submissions will reopen, that means that it has not yet been decided. Please do not harass me about when submissions will reopen; they will reopen when I am ready and not a minute sooner.
For those of you who are fond of sending me contact requests and asking me to personally inform you when submissions open: this is not realistic. The site sees hundreds of thousands of visitors per month. If I personally catered to every single person who can’t bother to check the submission status themselves, I’d never have time to do anything else!
