GaN lost my data!

I contacted the Globe At Night people today to find out why my light pollution assessment had not appeared on their web site. It is also interesting to note that there are no other Toronto entries...

The first response said, "there was a glich at that time for mag 3/4 data points." (Typos not corrected.)

Upon their request, I forwarded details of my location and submission (from memory). They replied, "I search the database for your specific lat/long and I encountered no entry matching yours. I am not at all certain what the error was-- I encourage you to make another observation and entry." (Typos not corrected.)

I relayed my discouragement and asked for more details...
