  1. Hello. I was just wondering if the finalists for this contest have been chosen since the voting ended on November 26th. Or should I continue seeking more hearts, lest I fall behind? Also, when will the winners be decided?

    • Finalists are determined based on the heart count at the end of the voting period. Hearts earned after that point do not count toward the finalist status.
