The newest Blog Carnival edition is AWOL

I have no idea what happened to the newest Market Anarchist Carnival edition. GM Gauthier seems to be AWOL. This is rather unnerving indeed.

I’m afraid there’s nothing I can do about it. All the submissions are in his hands. I’ll just have to make sure that the hosts are more reliable from now on.

    Franc —

    If you’d like to do an adhoc carnival in a few days (so people have time to resubmit), I’d be willing to host it at without hyphens.

    If you are interested, have people email their submissions to ollysk2 AT gmail DOT com (and mark the subject “Blog Carnival”).

    Just a thought,

    Well, I don’t really see how that would work, but would you like to host the December edition? See here for the hosting schedule:

    I just posted on the other thread, I’ll take the January edition (will be out of town on Dec. 29th).

    Franc – let’s just have everyone post the Carnival, and explain what happened. Have everyone e-mail Olly and he’ll put up the conglomerate post sometime next week.

    That makes no sense. How could I tell everyone who submitted when I don’t know who submitted?

    What I mean is: we (who are aware of the problem) make a post on our respective blogs, indicating the deficiency and the stop-gap solution. It’s not comprehensive, but it’s better than nothing. We might be able to pull together a carnival of five or six posts from the “regulars,” in a few days time.

    FYI, I already submitted mine to Olly’s email.

    Yes, that would be fine, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the normal schedule. Do you want me to post something or other about it?

  8. nothirdsolution August 31, 2007 at 01:00

    Yes. I’ll mirror whatever you post. I assume olly will do the same. And we’ll encourage any contributors to resubmit. Better than nothing, eh?

    On account of the holiday weekend, I’d suggest a Wednesday publish date. But that’s up to you.

    You’ll have to explain in more detail, because I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing.

    You know how when there is a new edition, everyone writes a post linking to the new edition? Well, this time, there is no edition to which to link. So we all write a brief post, describing what happened, and asking that any interested parties re-submit to Ollysk2 at Gmail dot com.
