Hi, Great to see a contest for a romance, and close to Valentine s Day! Nice timing .

I do have a couple of questions on the announcement.

Who can enter? One paragraph says anyone, graph below says entrants must have upgraded membership. Which is correct?
July, 2016 is listed as the date for announcing winners. Is that supposed to be July, 2017? Or will it be sooner? Thanks for clarification. Mary

For this one, anyone can enter. If you aren’t upgraded then you need to email your entry to and we will post for you. If you are upgraded, then you would follow the normal steps to post, but just make sure you include the proper tag so it lands in the right spot.

The winners will be announced on March 31st, 2017. I will update that 🙂
