    I really like these reports, both here and via email subscription, but why “Upcoming Market Changes” on top of the other categories? For instance, why is “Sword & Sorceress temporarily closes soon” here instead of “Sword & Sorceress” under “Temporarily Closing Markets”? While “Story Seed Vault‘s Submission Window begins and ends soon.” is here, as well as “Story Seed Vault” under “Temporarily Closing Markets” but not “Opening Markets”?

    I’m a bit confused, is all.
