Robert it's about time you gave us our pm's back and not make us suffer for what others have done.
I agree, but there are a lot of things that I also think it's about time I do but there's still only so much time in the day. I'm quite behind on just about everything to do with a2k because a2k is what we do when we have the luxury of doing what we want, rather than what pays the bills (a2k is our hobby that our other business supports) and other work/life events have intervened with our plans.
In any case, we've added more development and server administration bandwidth to the company recently, so hopefully things will come along more quickly now. But I can't make any promises and everything on a2k is offered on an as-is basis and development and such for it comes on an as-available basis. It is not how I would have things (this is the project I'd love to have the time to work on exclusively) but it is what it is and things will just have to happen when they do and we'll just have to live with displeasing folks sometimes by not doing things fast enough.
In any case, I think the PM thing can be fairly easily worked around through email like you just did, and if anyone doesn't want to post their own email they can always use a very easy "disposable" service like mailinator.com or use a free webmail account for it in the mean time. But yes, as soon as we can that limit will be removed.
