Hi folks,

We've noticed that some people are having a little trouble with submitting articles at the moment. Here's why (and what to do about it so that you can still submit your razor-sharp reviews, affectionate advice, caring campaigns, creative concoctions, original opinions, and what not!). 

Sadly, the website now logs people out after half an hour - even if you're still active on the site, and without telling you! This means that your screen won't change, but you'll be logged out, and if you're logged out, then you can't submit your articles, etc! 

So, you'll have to log back in every half an hour. To log back in, well, you'll have to hit 'Log out' (even though the site's kinda already done it for you...). Make sure you do copy your work before hitting 'Log out' or you'll lose it all and the world really will end. 

You can always write your article in something like Microsoft Word first (and save it regularly), and then copy and paste it into theSprout's 'Submit' form (here for articles, here for events), when you've finished working on it. We'd probably recommend this option. 

If you're really having trouble, even with the things that we mention above, you can just email over your articles, queries, etc, to sam@thesprout.co.uk and tom@thesprout.co.uk - please email both of us so that whoever's free can work on it/them.

Thanks for uploading this article Tom. I re-tried uploading an article, taking heed of your advice, and it worked! :)
