1. Does the title line count in the word count?
Nope. That would be mean. (And I'm not that mean.)
2. Does the entry have the authors name and email on it as a header
Yikes! No. I'd have to remove it. (And it's a common mistake.) When you submit your entry, it is automatically linked to your account. So the system connects it with you, while maintaining anonymity until after the winners are announced. So no names in the actual body of the entry.
3. How do I find these buddies? A couple of folks sent me 'howdy hi' notes, but I'm not sure if they meant that to be a buddy invite.
Send them a howdy back and ask if they want to be your buddy. If they were just being friendly, then pop back here to the boards and post a new message in this forum. viewforum.php?f=90
Hit the NEW TOPIC button at the top of the Challenge Buddy forum, and post a request for buddies.
Or you can make contact with some of the other people who have posted buddy requests. As people become more familiar with the new Buddy system, there will be more people posting and replying to requests. It's going to be an on-going thing.
Soooo many questions---; sorry
, my first time entering a challenge. LOL, I hope that I posted this right so I can answers! Mercy!
Never apologize for asking questions. We love members doing that, and there's always someone around who can point you in the right direction.
