In a thread at the STO forum, BranFlakes agreed to the sentiment expressed by HippieJohn and others:

Challenge #8 will be postponed until further notice, unfortunately.

Fortunately, we are working on resolutions to many of the big, outstanding Foundry issues (crashes, KDF creation, etc.) and hope to have those live in an upcoming patch. Watch for patch notes and updates from Frost!

Cheers,

As a participant in the last challenge, I think this is a wise move.  Challenge #7 was pretty much ruined by bugs, downtime, a loss of votes, and a general lack of participation post LoR.   Beware of the Foundry Challenge.
