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to SSSS materials if I uploaded the sections of my guide directly onto the Battery Buggy wiki page to the supplement outdated and insufficiently detailed sections of the wiki.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.

Oh thx hippo9 I'll do that then. Though I still don't really get why a pdf is easier :? .

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

It does not appear to have been received. I would recommend you resend it.

Some features of PDF files are still proprietary and therefore cannot be reliably opened outside of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is only released for Windows, Mac OS, and Android. The most portable file format standard would probably be OpenDocument.

(But it doesn't really matter for this purpose, so carry on.)

Just submitted my battery buggy guide :) . I wanted to add more, but there was a deadline for the submission. Speaking of deadlines, it was exactly 12:00 a.m. in UTC time, so I hope the mods excuse me for submitting my guide 3 seconds late. ;) Anybody else submit a battery buggy guide?

Umm it's been over 6 days and I still haven't gotten a response from the mods. I emailed them and also checked my junk folder, but nothing is there. Maybe the email didn't get through my spam filter? Mods can you please contact me asap?
