What's happening or not happening exactly? A few people have had issues since the posts went out about it but it's possible that the server is congested. Run us through it and we'll try and figure it out.

When trying to upload media, I don't think a thumbnail will show up confirming that it's complete.

Does it actually tell you when you’ve been successful?!

I was just able to submit. It says

"Thank you for your submission.
Your story has been filed. Stay tuned for more."

Yep, lots of big videos and images being submitted. I'm glad you've now been successful but to anyone else reading this, just keep trying in 30/60 minute intervals. Should go eventually.

I don't know if mine went through or not. I didn't get an error message but I don't remember seeing a 'success' message either.

Any way of checking if it went through or should I just submit again just in case?

You could try emailing them, but if there was no error it should've gone through in theory.
