Last weekend I posted about Top Cow's website crashing in the final days of voting for this year's Pilot Season prospects, and today we have the good news that the publisher is back online and extending voting through the end of the year. In a press release, Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik explained that the site was simply overwhelmed with more votes than the publisher anticipated.
“The number and velocity of votes completely exceeded our expectations, and this is the sort of high class problem you don’t mind solving," Sablik explained. "All of us at Top Cow are eager to see which Pilot Season competitor emerges victorious.”
According to the press release, TopCow.com has been restored and moved over to a more substantial server with increased capacity for traffic. The first round of voting has been extended through Dec. 31 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific, with the top four vote-getters going on to a second round, and the top two from that to go to a final round. Stay tuned for more news on the contest as it develops.
