Hey yea me too. I sent 2 emails but haven't gotten any reply

Oh wait, it's showing up in my spam. Guys check your spam folder
Mods, sorry for the extra bugging... I was wondering if you guys have received my Potions and Poisons Test for the SSSS. My email is pretty flaky and doesn’t send sometimes, and I hope this isn’t one of those “times”. Thanks!
I can confirm that all 3 of your emails have been received and forwarded to the mods correctly. Both were recent, so I wouldn't worry too much unless you don't see something after 6 or 7 days.

Hey, does anyone know when the tests and stuff here will be released to the general public? It says mid-August, but I was wondering if there was a more exact date.

So, I'm going to be submitting a Battery Buggy guide for SSSS :) . However, I had originally planned to make some major updates to the Battery Buggy wiki. Thus, my guide is more wiki-like than guide-like, if that makes sense. I'm wondering if I could still gain access to SSSS materials if I uploaded the sections of my guide directly onto the Battery Buggy wiki page to the supplement outdated and insufficiently detailed sections of the wiki. I would prefer to do this rather than submit a "guide", and have it be uploaded onto a separate wiki page. Obviously I would still have the SSSS mods evaluate my content, so I don't accidentally put a bunch of nonsense on the wiki.

If I get the chance I will also submit building instructions for my 2017 buggies and a "guide-guide", but I've been really busy.

Thank you very much for both participating in SSSS and wiki editing! If I'm interpreting your question right, is it just "can I submit to SSSS and edit the wiki with the submission?" If I read right, then the answer is absolutely. Just be sure to please submit as a pdf to make emailing the file / feedback significantly easier (that, and directly editing the wiki doesn't equal us receiving it, so it's easier to take note of).

Thanks, I will definitely get working on it then! By the way, I know you need the submission in pdf form, but I don't know if google docs has that ability. Would it be okay to submit my guide by adding the link in the email (google docs has a link sharing feature)?

Sorry not my business, but google docs does allow you to export to a pdf file.

A PDF is compatible with all operating systems, rather than, say, a doc/docx file which works best on Windows.
