  1. Ok, I entered my story into this contest. How exactly do you vote? I saw this and wanted to see who the top hearted were and to see if I was one of them and all it showed were ALL of the contest entries.
    Please explain?

    • If you saw it among the entries once and haven’t changed anything, it is still there. There are a lot of entries–the page number you saw your entry on is probably not the same as it is now.
