All registered members can now resume uploading docs. Everything is working the same as before with one exception - currently the upload filesize limit is 7MB. I plan on increasing that limit but it's not as simple as it sounds and it may be a little while before I get to it.

Fortunately, only about 15% of contributions are over this limit anyway. For those that are larger than 7MB I suggest using WinRAR or a similar archiving tool to split the PDF into multiple RAR files then upload each separately.

Also, I managed to find a backup of all the files just before the unexpected server change. So, the good news is that none of the docs that were previously uploaded have been lost to the best of my knowledge. I am currently restoring all the previously uploaded material to the server. It is about halfway done and may take another day or so to complete. Once that is done, Frequent Contributors should once again have full access to all pending uploads again.
